Routine

void MSfIntMC (const float x[], const float y[], int N, const float xi[],
float yi[], int Ni)
Purpose

Interpolate a table of values using a piecewise monotonic cubic interpolant
Description
This routine calculates interpolated values for a function defined by a table
of reference data values. The interpolated values are found by passing a
piecewise monotonic cubic interpolant through the reference data values. The
monotonicity property guarantees that the interpolated data values do not go
outside the range of the bracketing reference data values.
The procedure defines the cubic interpolant between any two adjacent
reference points in terms of the values and the derivatives at the reference
points. The derivatives at the reference points are determined by averaging
the inverse slopes of the straight line segments joining the reference
points to the left and right of a given reference point. These slope values
are changed if necessary to guarantee that the cubic interpolants are
monotonic between reference points. For instance a reference point is a
local extremum (the slopes of the straight line segments joining reference
points on either side of it are of different sign), the slope at that
reference point is set to zero. The slope of end points is determined from
the slopes of the two straight lines joining the reference points beside the
end point.

Parameters

> const float x[]

Abscissa values for the reference points. These values must be in
increasing order.

> const float y[]

Ordinate values for the reference points

> int N

Number of reference points

> const float xi[]

Abscissa values for the interpolated points. These values must be
bounded by x[0] and x[N1]. The values xi[i] need not be in any
particular order, although some efficiency is gained if they are in
increasing or decreasing order.

< float yi[]

Resulting interpolated ordinate values

> int Ni

Number of interpolated values
