At http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook/Matplotlib/SigmoidalFunctions I read
that matplotlib supports drawing arbitrary paths with splines, but the
functionality hasn't been exposed to the user. Can anyone tell me how I
can use this functionality? I tried searching the source code for
"spline," but I couldn't find anything useful.
(Sorry if this has been already brought up. I tried to search the
archives but, weirdly enough, I couldn't find any search functionality.
Perhaps it hasn't been exposed to the user, yet!)
This is lightly documented, so no worries. See the following examples
and the docs for the path module
If I've got it right, the path class represents a set of bezier curves. This is not exactly what I was looking for. Bezier splines and ordinary polynomial splines are essentially the same thing, of course, but I'd rather find a way to use the latter so that I won't have to do unnecessary conversions.
Basically, my problem is that there are a set of points given and I should calculate and draw a cubic spline that interpolates them. My instructor has suggested using Matlab, but I don't have it, and I don't know how to use it. Besides, I always prefer Python, if possible. Any ideas?
