Scattered data approximation.


Scattered data approximation.

Wendland, Holger.

Cambridge U. Pr.


336 pages



Cambridge monographs on applied and computational mathematics; 17


Wendland (Universitat Gottingen) introduces the reconstruction of a multivariate function from discrete, unstructured data. He concentrates on truly meshless methods such as radial basis functions, moving least squares, and partitions of unity. The book begins with an overview of typical applications of scattered data approximation, then leads the reader from basic properties to the current state of research. With complete proofs and historical background, the book can be used as a text for graduate courses on multivariate approximation, and to support courses in computer-aided geometric design and meshless methods for partial differential equations.
