scipy.interpolate.make_interp_spline¶

scipy.interpolate.
make_interp_spline
(x, y, k=3, t=None, bc_type=None, axis=0, check_finite=True)[source]¶ Compute the (coefficients of) interpolating Bspline.
Parameters:  x : array_like, shape (n,)
Abscissas.
 y : array_like, shape (n, …)
Ordinates.
 k : int, optional
Bspline degree. Default is cubic, k=3.
 t : array_like, shape (nt + k + 1,), optional.
Knots. The number of knots needs to agree with the number of datapoints and the number of derivatives at the edges. Specifically,
nt  n
must equallen(deriv_l) + len(deriv_r)
. bc_type : 2tuple or None
Boundary conditions. Default is None, which means choosing the boundary conditions automatically. Otherwise, it must be a lengthtwo tuple where the first element sets the boundary conditions at
x[0]
and the second element sets the boundary conditions atx[1]
. Each of these must be an iterable of pairs(order, value)
which gives the values of derivatives of specified orders at the given edge of the interpolation interval. Alternatively, the following string aliases are recognized:"clamped"
: The first derivatives at the ends are zero. This is equivalent to
bc_type=((1, 0.0), (1, 0.0))
.
"natural"
: The second derivatives at ends are zero. This is equivalent tobc_type=((2, 0.0), (2, 0.0))
."notaknot"
(default): The first and second segments are the same polynomial. This is equivalent to havingbc_type=None
.
 axis : int, optional
Interpolation axis. Default is 0.
 check_finite : bool, optional
Whether to check that the input arrays contain only finite numbers. Disabling may give a performance gain, but may result in problems (crashes, nontermination) if the inputs do contain infinities or NaNs. Default is True.
Returns:  b : a BSpline object of the degree
k
and with knotst
.

Examples
Use cubic interpolation on Chebyshev nodes:
>>> def cheb_nodes(N): ... jj = 2.*np.arange(N) + 1 ... x = np.cos(np.pi * jj / 2 / N)[::1] ... return x
>>> x = cheb_nodes(20) >>> y = np.sqrt(1  x**2)
>>> from scipy.interpolate import BSpline, make_interp_spline >>> b = make_interp_spline(x, y) >>> np.allclose(b(x), y) True
Note that the default is a cubic spline with a notaknot boundary condition
>>> b.k 3
Here we use a ‘natural’ spline, with zero 2nd derivatives at edges:
>>> l, r = [(2, 0.0)], [(2, 0.0)] >>> b_n = make_interp_spline(x, y, bc_type=(l, r)) # or, bc_type="natural" >>> np.allclose(b_n(x), y) True >>> x0, x1 = x[0], x[1] >>> np.allclose([b_n(x0, 2), b_n(x1, 2)], [0, 0]) True
Interpolation of parametric curves is also supported. As an example, we compute a discretization of a snail curve in polar coordinates
>>> phi = np.linspace(0, 2.*np.pi, 40) >>> r = 0.3 + np.cos(phi) >>> x, y = r*np.cos(phi), r*np.sin(phi) # convert to Cartesian coordinates
Build an interpolating curve, parameterizing it by the angle
>>> from scipy.interpolate import make_interp_spline >>> spl = make_interp_spline(phi, np.c_[x, y])
Evaluate the interpolant on a finer grid (note that we transpose the result to unpack it into a pair of x and yarrays)
>>> phi_new = np.linspace(0, 2.*np.pi, 100) >>> x_new, y_new = spl(phi_new).T
Plot the result
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> plt.plot(x, y, 'o') >>> plt.plot(x_new, y_new, '') >>> plt.show()
