File Information
Description

Script for Newton's Interpolation
newton_interpolation(x, y, p)
x and y are two Row Matrices and p is point of interpolation

Example
>> x=[1,2,4,7,8]
>> y=[-9,-41,-189,9,523]
>> newton_interpolation(x, y, 5)
OR
>> a = newton_interpolation(x, y, 5)

Hi,
I have try to use this .m file but I get problem. I think this program works only for few number of x values. While I give 45 x & 45 associated y values, it gives wrong resutlts but while I use 25 or less x & associated y values it works fine. I used your program to interpolate blasius exact solutions(it comes under boundary layer theory)

it finds correct y for given x values but it gives wrong results while interpolating.
Please check this, & if you correct the bug, Please send me a copy also
Thanking you

Dear Mr Rafi, AOA

You don't know me. I am a student of NUST. I got ur id while searching for MATLAB tutorials regarding interpolation.

I just wanna know if you have other MATLAB files regarding NUMERICAL ANALYSIS. If yes pls send them to me (if you dont mind ofcourse).

Thanx.

Dear Sir,
my name is Metha Martin Waga. I am a student at University of Applied
Sciences Berlin.
I need to write a presentation about Newton`s Interpolation Formular
Newton`s Interpolation Program from

I would like to apply this program but I don't know how to use.

Could you suggest me how to use? Do you have any tutor information or a
guide file, which you could send to me. I 'll be appriciated so much.

My problem is,
On this programm I need to put nummer on x and y.
For exemple
x_i = (0,1.5,2.5,4.5)
y_i=(1,2,2,1)
After the Newton Interpolation Formular the result is y=x^3+5x^2+8x-12
Later I want to simulate the result with Matlab.

Best Regards,
Metha Waga
