if you can explain in the behind of the code，it will be much better，thank you very much

I do not understand why you need ",2" when you are determining the size of pointx. Why can't you just code n=size(pointx)? I am new to matlab, can someone explain?

To answer some of those questions here is an example of input:
x=linspace(-10,10,500);
lagrange(x,[x0,...,xn],[f(x0),...f(xn)])
where [x0,...,xn] is pseudo-code for representing the x values as an array and [f(x0),...,f(xn)]. Then try to plot that lagrange against the function you are interpolating and you should see the desired results.

Simple yet functional code. Thanks

anyone can give me example how to use it?
i need it for my study...

how to represent x, i represent the x as [1 0] but it did not give the right answer

Lagrange interpolation is one of those interpolation methods that beginning textbooks include, along the way to showing you some useful methods. I imagine the textbook authors want to show you some of the history of interpolation. The fact is, high order Lagrange interpolation of this ilk was a only ever a good idea BACK IN the time of Lagrange. There has actually been progress in knowledge since then. (Surprise!) This is a terribly poor choice of interpolation method today.

In general, splines or other methods like them (PCHIP) will be less likely to introduce interpolation artifacts, oscillations, etc. Splines will be FAR less sensitive to tiny amounts of noise than will a high order Lagrange.

Even if I choose to disregard the method it implements,
the code itself is poorly implemented. It is triply looped - totally unvectorized. Expect it to be slow and if you have a large number of points, it will take more memory than need be.

If you need to use an interpolation tool, start with interp1, spline, or pchip, or look to the splines toolbox for more choices.

i am a student of electronics engr and hav to do numerical diff using lagrange

good work, but it is better to use Matlab "interp1" function.

Great job!!! Good work!

Very Good

bill cosby

Thank you for a great program

im einnor

flawless program!

Aleksey Rozsdobudko

what did u write?????? It can write even a child!!!!
dont use such words as "for","while" and anything like that in the matlab cos it's STUPPIDNESS!!!!!!

Man u r a king and matlab is your bitch!!
