• Free Polynomial Interpoaltion Book Gone but Moved

    From Noskosteve@21:1/5 to All on Sat Oct 31 15:36:58 2015
    Comcast finally killed my site.
    Another shameless plug for my free book - details and internet Archive links to it below.

    It's gone, but I moved the files to my ASUS storage site. Unfortunately, I have been unable to make the files Public so far, despite their instructions.

    If someone wants to try, this is supposed to be a link to the public folder containing the book, appendix and supplementary material:

    (for me, it says the directory contains no files, even though I see them inside my account) PLEASE Let me know if it works for you.

    I have received a dozen or so thanks for this work and wish to make it available for others in the future. It can still be found on the Internet Archive (WayBack Machine). The Internet Archive is saving web pages. BELOW I have Archive links for my

    I'll send it to anyone upon request in the future. I can be E-MAILED at noskosteve (at) either yahoo, or gmail (dot) com .

    What is this Book ??

    NEW DOCUMENTS have been ADDED that I did not add to the book and probably never will:
    - Approximating the SINE function with a method based on the Coons quintic function.
    - Maxim Shemanarev's algo for drawing a curve through a series of points using cubic Bezier.
    - Dylan Miller's approximation of an arbitrary circular arc with a cubic Bezier segment.

    "Interpolation and Curves for Graphics" - A Study of Piecewise Polynomial Interpolation Fundamentals And Curve Reference

    This book is *both*
    1 - A study of the fundamentals for a beginner and
    2 - An advanced reference of all common piecewise interpolation types with sample curves to demonstrate the behaviors. It also has a few things that I think derive from new ways of looking at various aspects of the math.

    When I wanted to learn about Piecewise Polynomial Interpolation for the laser light show system I built, I couldn't find a book suitable for me. After much reading and searching on the net a number of years ago, I had many notes, so I put them in order
    and it turned into the book I originally needed. Comments are always welcome via my site, but I probably won't be writing much in the way of additional revisions (time to ship it).

    PLEASE SEND ANY COMMENTS to me via the E-Mail addresses above.
    Cheers, Steve Noskowicz

    This looks like the Oct 2 2015 capture: https://web.archive.org/web/20151002232122/http://home.comcast.net/~k9dci/site/

    Direct Archive links. These may take a few more seconds to load from tapes and may come from earlier crawls, but should be the latest versions:
