How can I reduce the artifact in "Thin Plate Spline" interpolation?

At the Top "right", there is the 2D-density plot of the recorded data (actual), fewer in number. Recorded data has been sampled a on the 8 arms of a regular octagon. These 8 arms are placed ...

Is there any reliable free/open source tool for structured mesh smoothing?

I have been using Pointwise for grid generation and found the quality of smoothed grids to be stunning. I am not aware of any free/open source alteranative that offers the same capabilities for ...

How the number of pre-smoothing and post-smoothing steps affect the asymtotic convergence rate of geometrical Multigrid?

Does the convergence rate of multigrid depend on the total number of smoothing steps or on the number of pre and post smoothing steps seperately?

Fast convergence of smoothing of periodic noise

I have essentially periodic data from a simulation (not exactly periodic but is qualitatively fairly periodic), and I'd like to take an average or noise filter of some sort that I can get a well ...

What are systematic ways of approximating a non-smooth (non-continuously differentiable) system dynamic to be n-smooth?

I have a system dynamic that is non-smooth because it has several signum and absolute value functions in it (three-tank level control). I can obviously choose different sigmoid functions to ...

Smoothness regularisation of a 2D field on a triangular mesh?

I'm working on an inverse problem where the solution is the values of a 2D scalar field at the vertices of a 2D triangular mesh, such that the field can be defined continuously inside the mesh via ...

What is the default smoother for the "PCMG" preconditioner in PETSc?

For a large parallel sparse matrix (mpiaij type matrix) in my code, I was experimenting with various preconditioners to see which one would do best with GMRES/BiCGSTAB. I tried the PCMG ...

How to "smoothen" (not just refine) a 2D/3D polygonal mesh

Suppose I have a complicated structure given in 2 or 3 dimensions as a polygon mesh. For example, this could represent a "cave" or an assembly of irreguar shaped particles or a tree, whatever. Now I'd ...

Scaling factor of the inverse Fourier Transform (for convolution purposes)

I have a certain 2-D function. More properly, I have not the function itself, but the matrices $[X,Y,Z]$, where $X,Y$ are $1\times n$, and $Z$ is $n \times n$. Now, I want to calculate a a new matrix,...
