# uniform-cubic-splines

Uniform cubic spline interpolation & inversion.

This crate supports the following types of splines:

Curve widget with a 1D Catmull-Rom spline with non-uniform knot spacing and knot multiplicity using this crate for interpolation (drawn using tiny-skia).

The crate uses generics to allow interpolation of any type for which certain traits are defined.

I.e. you can use this crate to interpolate splines in 1D, 2D, 3D, etc.

[dependencies]
uniform-cubic-splines = { version = "0.1" }

## Example

Using a combination of spline() and spline_inverse() it is possible to compute a full spline-with-nonuniform-abscissæ:

use uniform_cubic_splines::{
basis::CatmullRom, spline_inverse, spline,
};

// We want to evaluate the spline at knot value 0.3.
let x = 0.3;

// The first and last points are never interpolated.
let knot_spacing = [0.0, 0.0, 0.1, 0.3, 1.0, 1.0];
let knots        = [0.0, 0.0, 1.3, 4.2, 3.2, 3.2];

let v = spline_inverse::<CatmullRom, _>(x, &knot_spacing, None, None).unwrap();
let y = spline::<CatmullRom, _, _>(v, &knots);

assert!(y - 4.2 < 1e-6);

## Features

• monotonic_check -- The spline_inverse() code will check if the knot vector is monotonic. This check can be made a lot faster if the unstable feature is enabled.
• unstable -- The monotonic_check feature will be faster but requite a nightly toolchain.
• use_std -- The monotonic_check accelleration will be detected at runtime.

## Background

The code is a Rust port of the implementation found in the Open Shading Language C++ source.

If you come from a background of computer graphics/shading languages used in offline rendering this crate should feel like home.
