Scattered Data Interpolation: Radial Basis and Other Methods
Suresh K. Lodha and Richard Franke
This chapter presents some techniques for solving scattered data interpolation for functional data. The focus here is to present some practical techniques for solving these problems using radial basis functions and some other local methods. Many of these techniques using radial basis functions have been developed only in last few years. Furthermore, although many of these techniques can be extended to higher dimensions, here we concern ourselves mostly with two and three dimensions. For a more comprehensive survey ond literature on scattered data interpolation, we refer the reader to our earlier work .
