## Lagrangian Interpolation

3) If e^1.3 is approximated by Langrangian interpolation from the values of e0=1, e1=2.7183, and e2 =7.3891., what are the minimum and maximum estimates for the error? Compare to the actual error. use MATLAB using “polyfit” and “polyval” functions 4) Repeat above problem but now extra polate to get e^2.7. NOTE: Find Lagrange p6(x) by […]
