ROOT::Math::Interpolator Class Reference

Class for performing function interpolation of points.

The class is instantiated with an interpolation methods, passed as an enumeration in the constructor. See Interpolation::Type for the available interpolation algorithms, which are implemented using GSL. See also the <A HREF=http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/manual/html_node/Interpolation.html">GSL manual for more information. The class provides additional methods for computing derivatives and integrals of interpolating functions.

This class does not support copying.

## Public Member Functions

Interpolator (const std::vector< double > &x, const std::vector< double > &y, Interpolation::Type type=Interpolation::kCSPLINE)
Constructs an interpolator class from vector of data points $$(x_i, y_i )$$ and with Interpolation::Type type.

Interpolator (unsigned int ndata=0, Interpolation::Type type=Interpolation::kCSPLINE)
Constructs an interpolator class from number of data points and with Interpolation::Type type.

virtual ~Interpolator ()

double Deriv (double x) const
Return the derivative of the interpolated function at point x.

double Deriv2 (double x) const
Return the second derivative of the interpolated function at point x.

double Eval (double x) const
Return the interpolated value at point x.

double Integ (double a, double b) const
Return the Integral of the interpolated function over the range [a,b].

bool SetData (const std::vector< double > &x, const std::vector< double > &y)
Set the data vector ( x[] and y[] ) To be efficient, the size of the data must be the same of the value used in the constructor (ndata) If this is not the case a new re-initialization is performed with the new data size.

bool SetData (unsigned int ndata, const double *x, const double *y)
Set the data vector ( x[] and y[] ) To be efficient, the size of the data must be the same of the value used when constructing the class (ndata) If this is not the case a new re-initialization is performed with the new data size.

std::string Type () const
Return the type of interpolation method.

## ◆ Interpolator() [1/3]

 ROOT::Math::Interpolator::Interpolator ( unsigned int ndata = 0, Interpolation::Type type = Interpolation::kCSPLINE )

Constructs an interpolator class from number of data points and with Interpolation::Type type.

The data can be set later on with the SetData method. In case the data size is not known, better using the default of zero or the next constructor later on. The default interpolation type is Cubic spline

## ◆ Interpolator() [2/3]

 ROOT::Math::Interpolator::Interpolator ( const std::vector< double > & x, const std::vector< double > & y, Interpolation::Type type = Interpolation::kCSPLINE )

Constructs an interpolator class from vector of data points $$(x_i, y_i )$$ and with Interpolation::Type type.

The method will compute a continuous interpolating function $$y(x)$$ such that $$y_i = y ( x_i )$$. The default interpolation type is Cubic spline
