A 6th-order local approximation by a cubic curve
البيانات الوصفيةعرض كامل للتسجيلة
We derive and present a MAPLE program for the construction of a parametric cubic polynomial curve which has sixth-order contract with a given smooth curve at a given point, thus providing a local sixth-order approximation to the given curve. Such a program is bound to be useful. We give also examples to show the implementation of the method.
