backSpline | R Documentation |

Create a monotone inverse of a monotone natural spline.

backSpline(object)

`object` |
an object that inherits from class |

An object of class `polySpline`

that contains the piecewise
polynomial representation of a function that has the appropriate
values and derivatives at the knot positions to be an inverse of the
spline represented by `object`

. Technically this object is not a
spline because the second derivative is not constrained to be
continuous at the knot positions. However, it is often a much better
approximation to the inverse than fitting an interpolation spline to
the y/x pairs.

`interpSpline`

require(graphics) ispl <- interpSpline( women$height, women$weight ) bspl <- backSpline( ispl ) plot( bspl ) # plots over the range of the knots points( women$weight, women$height )
