[SciPy-user] using UnivariateSpline
Fri May 22 17:38:30 CDT 2009
These classes are indeed rather poorly documented, but once you get
into them, they work very well.
Also, be aware that the three *UnivariateSpline classes are only
different in how they generate the knots:
*UnivarateSpline: determines the number of knots by adding more knots
until the smoothing condition (sum((w[i]*(y[i]-s(x[i])))**2,axis=0) <=
s) is satisfied - s is specified in the constructor or the
*LSQUnivariateSpline: the knots are specified in a sequence provided
to the constructor (t)
*InterpolatedUnivatiateSpline: the spline is forced to pass through
all the points (equivalent to s=0)
But they are all evaluated by being called, as has already been explained.
