Can anyone --- maybe somebody at WRI --- tell me how all those numbers in an InterpolatedFunction are calculated? For example, if f=f /. NDSolve[{f'[t]==E^(-t^2), f[0]==0}, f, {t,0,1}][[1]] then f is given as an interpolated function, and InputForm[f] shows the numbers, in various lists, that Mathematica needs to calculate the values of f. I haven't been able to figure out what they all mean, and I'd like to know. Thanks. Will Self Montana
