Hi,
I am trying to solve this problem by mathematica. Write a program to interpolate the function f(x,y) = cos(x) sin(y) at 16 equally-spaced points in the square (-pi,pi) x (-pi,pi), using multi-dimensional polynomials that are cubics in each coordinate. Plot the error in the function value.
However, I tried a lot but still failed.
I was wondering if you could help me.
I sent you the attached material.
Thank you so much.
Kang
