# Lagrange Interpolation

Lagrange interpolation gives a way of fitting a polynomial through at set of points. The basic polynomial is


In order to generate a curve in space it is convenient to consider this as a four dimensional problem with parameter as the independent variable. This ensures that is monotonic avoid singularities. The resulting modified equations are


For convenience the values are assumed to be in the range .
