Fractal methodology provides a general frame for the understanding of real-world phenomena. In particular, the classical methods of real-data interpolation can be generalized by means of fractal techniques. In this paper, we describe a procedure for the construction of smooth fractal functions, with the help of Hermite osculatory polynomials. As a consequence of the process, we generalize any smooth interpolant by means of a family of fractal functions. In particular, the elements of the class… 


Fractal interpolation functions capture the irregularity of some data very effectively in comparison with the classical interpolants. They yield a new technique for fitting experimental data sampled

Fractal-classic interpolants

The methodology of fractal interpolation is very useful for processing experimental signals in order to extract their characteristics of complexity. We go further and prove that the Iterated Function

Fractal Approximants on the Circle

In this article, a generalization of some approximation formulae proposed by Dunham Jackson both in classical and fractal cases are studied.


Fractal interpolation is a modern technique for fitting of smooth/non-smooth data. Based on only functional values, we develop two types of 𝒞1-rational fractal interpolation surfaces (FISs) on a


The reconstruction of an unknown function providing a set of Lagrange data can be approached by means of fractal interpolation. The power of that methodology allows us to generalize any other

A fractal procedure for the computation of mixed interpolants

SUMMARY We develop a procedure from the fractal methodology for the computation of an interpolant born from the cooperation of two functions of dierent nature. In particular, we define an Iterated

Fundamental Sets of Fractal Functions

Abstract Fractal interpolants constructed through iterated function systems prove more general than classical interpolants. In this paper, we assign a family of fractal functions to several classes

Toward a Unified Methodology for Fractal Extension of Various Shape Preserving Spline Interpolants

Fractal interpolation, one in the long tradition of those involving the interpolatary theory of functions, is concerned with interpolation of a data set with a function whose graph is a fractal or a

Visualization of constrained data by smooth rational fractal interpolation

A family of smooth rational spline fractal interpolation function (SRFIF) is presented with the help of classical rational cubic spline and convergence analysis shows that SRFIF gives a good approximation to the original function.

Fractal Interpolation Functions: A Short Survey

The object of this short survey is to revive interest in the technique of fractal interpolation. In order to attract the attention of numerical analysts, or rather scientific community of



Some results of convergence of cubic spline fractal interpolation functions.

Fractal interpolation functions (FIFs) provide new methods of approximation of experimental data. In the present paper, a fractal technique generalizing cubic spline functions is proposed. A FIF f is

A Fractal Version of the Schultz's Theorem

The approximation of experimental data can be envisaged in the light of fractal interpolation functions defined by iterated function systems. In the particular case of polynomial fractal

Generalized Cubic Spline Fractal Interpolation Functions

In view of wide ranging applications of the classical cubic splines in several mathematical and engineering problems, the explicit construction of cubic spline FIF $f_{\Delta}(x)$ through moments is developed and it is shown that the sequence f_{Delta_k} (x) converges to the defining data function on two classes of sequences of meshes at least as rapidly as the square of the mesh norm approaches to zero.

Fractal functions and interpolation

Let a data set {(xi,yi) ∈I×R;i=0,1,⋯,N} be given, whereI=[x0,xN]⊂R. We introduce iterated function systems whose attractorsG are graphs of continuous functionsf∶I→R, which interpolate the data
