Talk:Polynomial and rational function modeling
|WikiProject Statistics||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
I've done a bit of work in this area and I am not sure if this would be the correct article or not to discuss methods of generating these models. One may build up function models from: local information (Taylor series and pade approximations), interval information (generalized fourier series and Chebyshev rational functions), and asymptotic behavior estimation.
I am not sure if anyone has any interest in such a discussion of modeling functions locally, over an interval, or asymptotically. I think it would be good for this section to discuss several approaches and their trade-offs.
I have found that building a Taylor-like series from orthogonal Chebyshev polynomials and converting to a pade-like approximation to be a very general powerful approach (see: Richard L. Burden and J.
