CGAL 4.12 - 2D and Surface Function Interpolation

These functions approximate the gradient of a function at a point p given natural neighbor coordinates for p and its neighbors' function values.

The approximation method is described in [9]. Further functions are provided to fit the gradient for all data points that lie inside the convex hull of the data points. One function exists for each type of natural neighbor coordinates.

Requirements

1. The value type of ForwardIterator is a pair of point/coordinate value, thus std::iterator_traits<ForwardIterator>::value_type::first_type is equivalent to a point and std::iterator_traits<ForwardIterator>::value_type::second_type is a number type.
2. Functor::argument_type must be equivalent to std::iterator_traits<ForwardIterator>::value_type::first_type and Functor::result_type is the function value type. It must provide a multiplication and addition operation with the type std::iterator_traits<ForwardIterator>::value_type::second_type.
3. Traits is a model of the concept GradientFittingTraits.

## Function Documentation

template<class ForwardIterator , class Functor , class Traits >
 Traits::Vector_d CGAL::sibson_gradient_fitting ( ForwardIterator first, ForwardIterator beyond, const typename std::iterator_traits< ForwardIterator >::value_type::second_type & norm, const typename std::iterator_traits< ForwardIterator >::value_type::first_type & p, Functor f, const Traits & traits )

#include <CGAL/sibson_gradient_fitting.h>

estimates the gradient of a function at the point p given natural neighbor coordinates of p in the range [first, beyond) and the function values of the neighbors provided by the functor f.

norm is the normalization factor of the barycentric coordinates.

template<class Dt , class OutputIterator , class Functor , class Traits >
 OutputIterator CGAL::sibson_gradient_fitting_nn_2 ( const Dt & dt, OutputIterator out, Functor f, const Traits & traits )

#include <CGAL/sibson_gradient_fitting.h>

estimates the function gradients at all vertices of dt that lie inside the convex hull using the coordinates computed by the function PkgInterpolationNaturalNeighborCoordinates2.

The value type of OutputIterator is a pair associating a point to a vector. The sequence of point/gradient pairs computed by this function is placed starting at out. The function returns an iterator that is placed past-the-end of the resulting sequence. The requirements are the same as above. The template class Dt must be equivalent to Delaunay_triangulation_2<Gt, Tds>.
