ABSTRACT
In this paper, we consider multivariate interpolation with radial basis functions of finite smoothness. In particular, we show that interpolants by radial basis functions in â„ with finite smoothness of even order converge to a polyharmonic spline interpolant as the scale parameter of the radial basis functions goes to zero, i.e., the radial basis functions become increasingly flat.

Shifted surface spline is a frequently used radial function for scattered data interpolation. The most frequently used error bounds for this radial function are the one raised by Wu and Schaback in [17] and the one raised by Madych and Nelson in [14]. Both are O(dl) as d â†’ 0, where l is a...

Spline interpolation is not always a well-posed problem. The interpolation conditions are sufficient to uniquely determine the interpolant only when the nodes are unisolvent. Examples for which this requirement is not fulfilled are the cases of nodes lying in a straight line, circle, plane,...

AbstractÂ Â In this paper we derive several new results involving matrix-valued radial basis functions (RBFs). We begin by introducing a class of matrix-valued RBFs which can be used to construct interpolants that are curl-free. Next, we offer a characterization of the native space for...
