REgular Grid Linear Interpolator.

## regli

REgular Grid Linear Interpolator, capable to deal with spectral library or similar model data.

This package implements the basic bilinear interpolation in multi-dimension. However, as commented in Numerical Recipes:

Bilinear interpolation is frequently “close enough for government work.” As the interpolating point wanders from grid square to grid square, the interpolated func- tion value changes continuously. However, the gradient of the interpolated function changes discontinuously at the boundaries of each grid square.

As a consequence, the interpolation model can not, in general, be used as a forward model and incorporated with Gradient-based optimization algorithms to estimate parameters.

# construct grid coordinates
x1 = np.linspace(-1, 1, 30)
x2 = np.linspace(-1, 1, 30)

# initiate regli using coordinates

f = lambda _x1, _x2, _x3: _x1 + _x2 + _x3

# regli.flats stores flattened coordinates of ND grid

# evaluate your function on flats
values = np.array([f(*_) for _ in flats]).reshape(-1, 1)
# set values for regli
regli.set_values(values)

regli(pos)                      # use any of the 3 ways to interpolate
regli.interpn(pos)              # method 1 is equivalent to 2
regli.interp3(pos)              # this is accelerated for 3D
