Abstract

We consider the classical Interpolating Moving Least Squares (IMLS) interpolant as defined by Lancaster and Šalkauskas [Math. Comp.37 (1981) 141–158] and compute the first and second derivative of this interpolant at the nodes of a given grid with the help of a basic lemma on Shepard interpolants. We compare the difference formulae with those defining optimal finite difference methods and discuss their deviation from optimality.
