MSdPolyInt
Routine

double MSdPolyInt (double x, const double xa[], const double ya[], int N,
double buff[])
Purpose

Polynomial interpolation given a set of points
Description
Given a set of points (xa and ya values), this routine evaluates the
polynomial passing through those points. The calculation uses
Neville's algorithm.

The computational complexity is proportional to N^2. If the same polynomial
is to be evaluated at several points, other schemes which precompute a set
of coefficients for the polynomial may be preferable.
Parameters

< double MSdPolyInt

Value of the polynomial evaluated at x

> double x

Evaluation point

> const double xa[]

Array of N abscissa values

> const double ya[]

Array of N ordinate values

> int N

Number of reference points

> double buff[]

Buffer (2N values) for use internally. If buff is set to NULL,
a temporary buffer will be created internally.
