Bivariate polynomial interpolation on the node points of Lissajous curves
Version: 0.2 (01.05.2016)
Written by Wolfgang Erb
The package LS2Ditp contains a Matlab implementation for bivariate polynomial interpolation on the node points LS of degenerate and non-degenerate 2D-Lissajous curves. The description of the Lissajous curves, the point sets LS and the polynomial interpolation scheme is summarized in the survey article .
The main test file for interpolation is main_example.m
For plotting 2D Lissajous curves and the LS points use plot_Lissajous.m
