Definition for Extrapolation:
 A mathematical procedure whichestimates values of a function for certain desired inputsgiven values for known inputs.If the desired input is outside the range of the known valuesthis is called extrapolation, if it is inside then it iscalled interpolation.The method works by fitting a " curve" ( i.e. a function) to twoor more given points and then applying this function to therequired input. Example uses are calculating trigonometricfunctions from tables and audio waveform sythesis.The simplest form of interpolation is where a function, f(x), is estimated by drawing a straight line (" linearinterpolation") between the nearest given points on eitherside of the required input value:f(x) ~ f(x1) + ( f(x2)  f(x1))( xx1)/( x2  x1)There are many variations using more than two points or higherdegree polynomial functions. The technique can also beextended to functions of more than one input.
