Best Error Bounds for Splines of Degree Seven

Keywords: Interpolation polynomial, splines function, error bounds, convergence analysis.


In this paper, we construct a spline method to solving a interpolation problem using spline polynomial of degree seven which agree with the given function and it’s second derivative at knots and the function at mid points and the second derivative at (1/3) points also. This new class of spline interpolates provides a large accuracy in the choice of the error bounds.
