- Derivatives of polynomial interpolants lead in a natural way to approximations of derivatives of the interpolated function, e.g., through finite differences. We extend a study of the approximation of derivatives of linear barycentric rational interpolants and present improved finite difference formulas arising from these interpolants. The formulas contain the classical finite differences as a special case and are more stable for calculating one-sided derivatives as well as derivatives close to boundaries.
