holds for any distinct x_{0},x_{1},x_{2},¼,x_{n}.
The spreadsheet can then be applied to solve the polynomial interpolation
problem based on this formula of divided differences. The basic
procedure is to set up a table to compute the divided differences according
to this scheme:
Draw the graph of the interpolation polynomial satisfying the following
condition with Maple:
x
3
2
6
5
1
f(x)
3
-3
1
4
2
When the package ``networks'' is loaded, a number of new commands are added.
The most important one is draw. This allows you to visualize the
graph.
