Hello all,

I am a noob in math so please bear with me.

Currently, I get hold of a book called

"Numerical Analysis" by Richard L. Burden and J. Douglas Faires

There is a compact disc that comes with the book.

Inside the CD, there are a couple of directories,

one to use C and the others like matlab and maple to solve mathematical problems

The problem now is that

I want to generate a geometrical function to encompass all the computations

on pathfinding that involve path smoothing. The map is about 300x300

points wide, with quite dense of obstacles.

If I throw 90000 points with accompanying booleans at matlab or the c program, will it or will it not generate a function that fits in and solve

all smooth turning problems (x,y) that I want to calculate.

I was originally looking for a catmull-rom curve generation function with

less than 3 control points, but I thought that was impossible.

The original algorithm also worths a mention, I am using

incremental pathfinding method which I call it "do-and-forget"

the points are calculated at real time on the fly.

I also use brushfire algorithm (HAA*) and an annotated map for

clearance on the map... Any chance matlab will do that for me

without extra labour?

Thanks

Jack
