Quick 1-D linear interpolation


interp1q is not recommended. Use interp1 instead.


yi = interp1q(x,Y,xi)


yi = interp1q(x,Y,xi) returns the value of the 1-D function Y at the points of column vector xi using linear interpolation. The vector x specifies the coordinates of the underlying interval. The length of output yi is equal to the length of xi.

For interp1q to work properly,

  • x must be a monotonically increasing column vector.

  • Y must be a column vector or matrix with length(x) rows.

  • xi must be a column vector

interp1q returns NaN for any values of xi that lie outside the coordinates in x. If Y is a matrix, then the interpolation is performed for each column of Y, in which case yi is length(xi)-by-size(Y,2).


collapse all

Generate a coarse sine curve and interpolate over a finer abscissa.

x = (0:10)'; 
y = sin(x); 
xi = (0:.25:10)'; 
yi = interp1q(x,y,xi);
