Title 



Symbolic and interval rational interpolation: the problem of unattainable data

Abstract 



A typical problem with rational interpolation is that of a socalled unattainable point, when the interpolation condition cannot be met by the rational interpolant of the specified degree. The problem can be dealt with in at least two approaches, one of which is novel and practically oriented. We admit infinity in the independent variable as well as in the function value. Rational interpolation is solved symbolically in its full generality by Van Barel and Bultheel [9]. The authors return a parameterized set of rational interpolants of higher degree than requested but without unattainable points. In many practical applications however, observations are not exact but prone to imprecise measurements. A natural way for dealing with uncertainty in the data is by means of an uncertainty interval. It is shown in [1] how a rational function of lowest complexity can be obtained which intersects all uncertainty intervals and avoids the typical problem of unattainable data.
