java.lang.Object uk.ac.starlink.ast.Mapping.Interpolator
public static class Mapping.Interpolator
Controls the interpolation scheme used by Mapping
's
resampling methods. This class has no public constructors, but
provides static factory methods which generate Interpolator
objects that can be passed to the resample*
methods.
There are a number of standard schemes, and users may supply their
own by implementing the Ukern1Calculator
or
UinterpCalculator
interfaces.

public static Mapping.Interpolator nearest()
public static Mapping.Interpolator linear()
public static Mapping.Interpolator sinc(int npix)
sinc(pi*x)
1dimensional kernel.
npix
 the number of pixels to contribute to the
interpolated result on either side of the
interpolation point in each dimension.
Execution time increases rapidly with this number.
Typically, a value of 2 is appropriate and the
minimum value used will be 1. A value of zero
or less may be given to indicate that a suitable
number of pixels should be calculated automatically.
public static Mapping.Interpolator sincSinc(int npix, double width)
sinc(pi*x).sinc(k*pi*x)
1dimensional kernel.
npix
 the number of pixels to contribute to the
interpolated result on either side of the
interpolation point in each dimension.
Execution time increases rapidly with this number.
Typically, a value of 2 is appropriate and the
minimum value used will be 1. A value of zero
or less may be given to indicate that a suitable
number of pixels should be calculated automatically.width
 the number of pixels at which the envelope goes
to zero. Should be at least 1.0.
public static Mapping.Interpolator sincCos(int npix, double width)
sinc(pi*x).cos(k*pi*x)
1dimensional kernel.
npix
 the number of pixels to contribute to the
interpolated result on either side of the
interpolation point in each dimension.
Execution time increases rapidly with this number.

public static Mapping.Interpolator somb(int npix)
somb(pi*x)
1dimensional kernel
(a "sombrero" function).
x
is the pixel offset from the interpolation point
and somb(z)=2*1(z)/z
(J1 is a Bessel function
of the first kind of order 1).
npix
 the number of pixels to contribute to the
interpolated result on either side of the
interpolation point in each dimension.
Execution time increases rapidly with this number.
Typically, a value of 2 is appropriate and the
minimum value used will be 1. A value of zero
or less may be given to indicate that a suitable
number of pixels should be calculated automatically.
public static Mapping.Interpolator sombCos(int npix, double width)
