Subject [jira] [Updated] (MATH-1471) BicubicInterpolatingFunction not interpolating correctly for non discrete y value

]

Thomas Swinicki updated MATH-1471:
----------------------------------
Description:
Upon performing a bicubic interpolation with two point (x0, y0) and (x1, y1), the returned
bicubic interpolating function returned returns the same result for variations in the estimated
y value.

For example, my inputs are (20, 20) and (25, 25) with f(20, 20) = 64 and f(25, 25) = 6468.

When I get the bicubic interpolating function for this and vary the estimated x, it works
fine. For (21, 20), the function returns 730.016. When I input (20, 21), the function returns
64, which is f(20, 20). For any y value in between 20 and 25, the result is 64. This is the
case for any function for which the y estimate is different from the value on the points.

In other instances, it is varying x values that result in the same result while varying y
estimates seem to work as expected.
