Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We suggest a local hybrid approximation scheme based on polynomials and radial basis functions, and use it to improve the scattered data fitting algorithm of (Davydov, O., Zeilfelder, F., 2004. Scattered data fitting by direct extension of local polynomials to bivariate splines. Adv. Comp. Math. 21, 223-271). Similar to that algorithm, the new method has linear computational complexity and is therefore suitable for large real world data. Numerical examples suggest that it can produce high quality artifact-free approximations that are more accurate than those given by the original method where pure polynomial local approximations are used.
