Notes

This function evaluates a bivariate polynomial (represented in double Chebyshev form) of degree in one variable, , and degree in the other, . The range of both variables is to . However, these normalized variables will usually have been derived (as when the polynomial has been computed by dim2_cheb_lines(), for example) from your original variables and by the transformations

(Here and are the ends of the range of which has been transformed to the range to of . and are correspondingly for . See Further Comments). For this reason, the function has been designed to accept values of and rather than and , and so requires values of , etc. to be supplied by you. In fact, for the sake of efficiency in appropriate cases, the function evaluates the polynomial for a sequence of values of , all associated with the same value of .

The double Chebyshev series can be written as

where is the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind of degree and argument , and is similarly defined. However the standard convention, followed in this function, is that coefficients in the above expression which have either or zero are written , instead of simply , and the coefficient with both and zero is written .

The function first forms , with replaced by , for each of . The value of the double series is then obtained for each value of , by summing , with replaced by , over . The Clenshaw three term recurrence (see Clenshaw (1955)) with modifications due to Reinsch and Gentleman (1969) is used to form the sums.
