Script to solve second order (polynomial) interpolation

Currently I have awk command to do linear interpolation
Code:

```awk ' {   P[\$1]=\$2   I[i++]=\$1 } END{   j=0; s=I[j]; t=I[j+1]   for(i=m;i<=n;i++){     if(I[j+2] && i>t){       j++; s=I[j]; t=I[j+1]     }                            print i,P[s]+(i-s)*(P[t]-P[s])/(t-s)   }                                    } ' m=1 n=8 infile```
INPUT
Code:

```#X Y 1 22.3125 4 22.5 8 22.1875```
OUTPUT
Code:

```1 22.3125 2 22.2917 3 22.2708 4 22.5 5 22.2344 6 22.2188 7 22.2031 8 22.1875```
Any idea how to change the code to polynomial interpolation?
EXPECTED OUTPUT
Code:

```1 22.3125 2 33.4583 3 33.4375 4 22.25 5 22.2321 6 22.2158 7 22.2009 8 22.1875```
The Y of X0=0. Please help me to solve this... Thank you very much...

That doesn't seem like the correct result. It does not even look like the output of the program you posted.

How did you calculate the desired output?

Thank you for the respond. It should be
Code:

```1 22.3125 2 22.2917 3 22.2708 4 22.25 5 22.2344 6 22.2188 7 22.2031 8 22.1875```

You did not answer the question about HOW you arrived at those figures?

DO you mean how I get the values? For the values 1,4,and 8, they are pre-defined. The desired output are based on this formula
(((x-x2) * (x-x3)) / ((x1-x2) * (x1-x3))) * y1 + (((x-x1) * (x-x3)) / ((x2-x1) * (x2-x3))) * y2 + (((x-x1) * (x-x2)) / ((x3-x1) * (x3-x1))) * y3

x = current ID;
x1 = the first known ID (second previous known ID); ---> 1
x2 = the second known ID (first previous known ID); ---> 4
x3 = the third known ID (next known ID); ---> 8
y1 = the first known value (the value of ID x1)
y2 = the second known value (the value of ID x2)
y3 = the third known value (the value of ID x3)

And are you saying you cannot implement the formula in awk? Seems fairly straight forward.

Again, it gives a different values than what you showed in the first post. Perhaps the last parenthesis should have been (x3-x2) instead of (x3-x1)?
But even then it does not explain the values 33.something.
Anyway, you just described the algorithm, so you obviously know how to do it. So what exactly is preventing you from putting it into a script?
