[SciPy-User] Spline Interpolation with non continuous data

Yes, or use tension spline, with the W parameter. It will stop (well, not
stop, but limit) the natural spline to oscillate and have the gibbs

I found that some time ago on stackoverflow.

when I want matlab-like medium tension I use W=sqrt(weights)
when I want high tension, I use W=weights.

#In short, to match matlab's error calculation, you need to pass "w" to
splrep or UnivariateSpline, where w = np.sqrt(trapz_weights(x))
def trapz_weights(x):
    dx = np.diff(x)
    w = np.empty(x.shape)
    w[1:-1] = (dx[1:] + dx[:-1])/2.
    w[0] = dx[0] / 2.
    w[-1] = dx[-1] / 2.
    return w
