# Thread: Polynomial interpolation - divided difference

1. ## Polynomial interpolation - divided difference

I'm working with polynomail interpolation

f(x) = x^n, n>=0. Let x0,x1,x2,...,xm be m+1 distinct numbers. What is
f[x0,x1,...,xm] for m=n? For m>n?

I think we will need either the exact wording of the problem or more contextual information to make much sense of this question.
