Question 1. Define Interpolation. Answer: It is the technique of estimating the value of the dependent variable Y for any intermediate value of the independent variable X.
Extrapolation is the process of taking data values at points x 1 , This is most commonly experienced when an incoming signal is sampled periodically and that data is used to approximate the next data point. For example, weather predictions take historic data and extrapolate a future weather pattern.
Extrapolation and interpolation are both used to estimate hypothetical values for a variable based on other observations. There are a variety of interpolation and extrapolation methods based on the overall trend that is observed in the data. These two methods have names that are very similar. We will examine the differences between them.

Interpolation is a statistical method by which related known values are used to estimate an unknown price or potential yield of a security. Interpolation is achieved by using other established values that are located in sequence with the unknown value. Interpolation is at root a simple mathematical concept.
If there is a generally consistent trend across a set of data points, one can reasonably estimate the value of the set at points that haven't been calculated. Investors and stock analysts frequently create a line chart with interpolated data points. These charts help them visualize the changes in the price of securities and are an important part of technical analysis. Investors use interpolation to create new estimated data points between known data points on a chart.
Charts representing a security's price action and volume are examples where interpolation might be used. While computer algorithms commonly generate these data points today, the concept of interpolation is not a new one. Interpolation has been used by human civilizations since antiquity, particularly by early astronomers in Mesopotamia and Asia Minor attempting to fill in gaps in their observations of the movements of the planets. There are several formal kinds of interpolation, including linear interpolation, polynomial interpolation, and piecewise constant interpolation.
Financial analysts use an interpolated yield curve to plot a graph representing the yields of recently issued U.
Treasury bonds or notes of a specific maturity. This type of interpolation helps analysts gain insight into where the bond markets and the economy might be headed in the future. Interpolation should not be confused with extrapolation, which refers to the estimation of a data point outside of the observable range of data.
Extrapolation has a higher risk of producing inaccurate results compared to interpolation. The easiest and most prevalent kind of interpolation is a linear interpolation. This type of interpolation is useful if one is trying to estimate the value of a security or interest rate for a point at which there is no data. Let's assume, for example, we're tracking a security price over a period of time. We'll call the line on which the value of the security is tracked the function f x. We would plot the current price of the stock over a series of points representing moments in time.
So if we record f x for August, October, and December, those points would be mathematically represented as x Aug, x Oct, and x Dec, or x 1, x 3 and x 5. For a number of reasons, we might want to know the value of the security during September, a month for which we don't have any data.
We could use a linear interpolation algorithm to estimate the value of f x at plot point x Sep , or x 2 that appears within the existing data range. One of the biggest criticisms of interpolation is that although it's a fairly simple methodology that's been around for eons, it lacks precision.
Interpolation in ancient Greece and Babylon was primarily about making astronomical predictions that would help farmers time their planting strategies to improve crop yields. While the movement of planetary bodies is subject to many factors, they are still better suited to the imprecision of interpolation than the wildly variant, unpredictable volatility of publicly-traded stocks. Nevertheless, with the overwhelming mass of data involved in securities analysis, large interpolations of price movements are fairly unavoidable.
Most charts representing a stock's history are in fact widely interpolated. Linear regression is used to make the curves which approximately represent the price variations of a security. Even if a chart measuring a stock over a year included data points for every day of the year, one could never say with complete confidence where a stock will have been valued at a specific moment in time.

Key Takeaways Interpolation is a simple mathematical method investors use to estimate an unknown price or potential yield of a security or asset by using related known values. By using a consistent trend across a set of data points, investors can estimate unknown values and plot these values on charts representing a stock's price movement over time.
One of the criticisms of using interpolation in investment analysis is that it lacks precision and does not always accurately reflect the volatility of publicly traded stocks. Compare Accounts.

Abstract. —Interpolation is the process of calculating the unknown value from known given values whereas extrapolation is the process of calculating unknown values beyond the given data points.
Extrapolation is a useful statistical tool used to estimate values that go beyond a set of given data or observations. In this lesson, you will learn how to estimate or predict values using this tool. It could even be said that it helps predict the future! To help us remember what it means, we should think of the part of the word 'extra' as meaning 'more' data than what we originally had. This tool is not only useful in statistics but also useful in science, business, and anytime there is a need to predict values in the future beyond the range we have measured.
Interpolation means to calculate a point or several points between two given points. For a given sequence of points, this means to estimate a curve that passes through every single point. Linear interpolation is the simplest interpolation method. Applying linear interpolation to a sequence of points results in a polygonal line where each straight line segment connects two consecutive points of the sequence. Therefore, every segment P; Q is interpolated independently as follows:.
Interpolation is the process of deriving a simple function from a set of discrete data points so that the function passes through all the given data points i. It is necessary because in science and engineering we often need to deal with discrete experimental data. Interpolation is also used to simplify complicated functions by sampling data points and interpolating them using a simpler function. Polynomials are commonly used for interpolation because they are easier to evaluate, differentiate, and integrate - known as polynomial interpolation.
От него зависела жизнь Сьюзан, а также будущее Цифровой крепости. Стратмор также понимал, что первым делом нужно разрядить ситуацию. Выдержав паузу, он как бы нехотя вздохнул: - Хорошо, Грег. Ты выиграл. Чего ты от меня хочешь.
Без воска, Дэвид. Она просияла и прижала записку к груди. Это был Дэвид, кто же. Без воска… Этот шифр она еще не разгадала. Что-то шевельнулось в углу. Сьюзан подняла .
На бумажке был электронный адрес Северной Дакоты. NDAKOTAARA. ANON.
На этот раз Стратмор позволил себе расхохотаться во весь голос. - Твой сценарий мне понятен. ТРАНСТЕКСТ перегрелся, поэтому откройте двери и отпустите .
Настали не лучшие времена, - вздохнул Стратмор. Не сомневаюсь, - подумала. Сьюзан никогда еще не видела шефа столь подавленным.
Джабба сидел весь потный, положив руки на клавиатуру. - Да, да, - сказал он, - читайте эту благословенную надпись. Сьюзан стояла рядом, у нее подгибались колени и пылали щеки. Все в комнате оставили свои занятия и смотрели на огромный экран и на Дэвида Беккера. Профессор вертел кольцо в пальцах и изучал надпись.
