Abstract

This paper discusses the Lagrange interpolation problem in continuous bivariate spline spaces over regular triangulations. By using the so-called Lagrange interpolation set along piecewise algebraic curves, we develop a new approach of constructing the interpolation set for continuous spline spaces. We show the property of this set on star region, and construct the interpo- lation set for continuous bivariate spline spaces over arbitrary triangulations. The construction only depends on the number of points on the piecewise algebraic curve in each cell.
