ffloat, array-like, shape

, the data values of the dependent variable in the same sequence as the values.

wfloat, array-like, shape

The weights to be assigned to the data points, in the same sequence as the values. These weights should be calculated from estimates of the absolute accuracies of the , expressed as standard deviations, probable errors or some other measure which is of the same dimensions as . Specifically, each should be inversely proportional to the accuracy estimate of . Often weights all equal to unity will be satisfactory. If a particular weight is zero, the corresponding data point is omitted from the fit.

Notes

dim2_cheb_lines determines a bivariate polynomial approximation of degree in and in to the set of data points , with weights , for , for . That is, the data points are on lines , but the values may be different on each line. The values of and are prescribed by you (for guidance on their choice, see Further Comments). The function is based on the method described in Sections 5 and 6 of Clenshaw and Hayes (1965).

The polynomial is represented in double Chebyshev series form with arguments and . The arguments lie in the range to and are related to the original variables and by the transformations

Here and are set by the function to, respectively, the largest and smallest value of , but and are functions of prescribed by you (see Further Comments). For this function, only their values and at each are required. For each , must not be less than the largest on the line , and, similarly, must not be greater than the smallest .

The double Chebyshev series can be written as

where is the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind of degree with 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 as , instead of simply , and the coefficient with both and equal to zero is written as . The series with coefficients output by the function should be summed using this convention. dim2_cheb_eval() is available to compute values of the fitted function from these coefficients.

The function first obtains Chebyshev series coefficients , for , of the weighted least squares polynomial curve fit of degree in to the data on each line , for , in turn, using an auxiliary function. The same function is then called times to fit , for , by a polynomial of degree in , for each . The resulting coefficients are the required .

You can force the fit to contain a given polynomial factor. This allows for the surface fit to be constrained to have specified values and derivatives along the boundaries , , and or indeed along any lines constant or constant (see Section 8 of Clenshaw and Hayes (1965)).
