Description: Hardy's multiquadric interpolation (MQI) scheme is a global, continuously differentiable interpolation method for solving scattered data interpolation problems. It is capable of producing monotonic, extremely accurate interpolating functions, integrals, and derivatives. Derivative estimates for a variety of one and two-dimensional surfaces were obtained. MQI was then applied to the spherical blast wave problem of von Neumann. The numerical solution agreed extremely well with the exact solution. 17 refs., 3 figs., 2 tabs.
