Returns estimates of the slope of an interpolating function that runs through a set of points in the xy-plane. The slopes are calculated using to the algorithm of Stineman (1980), i.e. from the tangent of circles passing through every three consecutive points.
coordinates of points defining the interpolating function.
if true (default) then the x and y values are normalized prior to the slope calculation.
Returns an estimate of the slope of the interpolant at (x,y).
This function is used as part of the Stineman
It is rarely called directly by the user,
and checking of x and y must be performed by the calling function.
Stineman's method provides a more robust interpolating function
near abrupt steps or spikes in the point sequence
than the alternative method based on a second degree interpolating polynomial,
which is provided by the function
parabolaSlopes (see the documentation
of the function
stinterp for further information),
but it results in slightly less accuracy for smooth functions.
