3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Given a function z = f(x,y) in matrix form, defined on a rectangular mesh-grid, it returns the value of the function, the first and second partial derivatives in an arbitrary point (x',y') inside the rectangular domain.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

A bicubic spline interpolation method is used; a linear and logarithmic interpolation model is included.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Variable dimensioning is used by storing all data in one array.
