Chebyshev interpolation for functions with endpoint singularities via exponential and double-exponential transforms

By Mark Richardson


We present five theorems concerning the asymptotic convergence rates of Chebyshev interpolation applied to functions transplanted to either a semi-infinite or an infinite interval under exponential or double-exponential transformations. This strategy is useful for approximating and computing with functions that are analytic apart from endpoint singularities. The use of Chebyshev polynomials instead of the more commonly used cardinal sinc or Fourier interpolants is important because it enables one to apply maps to semi-infinite intervals for functions which have only a single endpoint singularity. In such cases, this leads to significantly improved convergence rates
