How can I fit data using quartic smoothing splines?

10 views (last 30 days)
Dear Community,
I am looking for something exactly like the existing function SPAPS, but for quartic splines. For some reason the only built-in options appear to be quadratic, cubic, and quintic. I have tried solutions with the FIT function but I am not getting anywhere. Please note it is important that I can set knots, specify the smoothing parameter p and retract the values of the resulting function.
Thank you very much for your help!

I need to exactly replicate the results of a paper that uses quartic

Quoted from
k = 5; % order 5, i.e., we are working with quartic splines
x = 2*pi*sort([0 1 rand(1,10)]);
y = cos(x);
sp = spapi( optknt(x,k), x, y );

%let us take this example:
t=[0:10];y=sin(t); %your signal
yfit=fit(t',y',method) %interpolation function yfit
%now choose your new time vector with 0.1 sample time
plot(t,y,'r') %your original signal
hold on, plot(ti,yi,'+b'); %your new signal

Thank you for your answer. I have tried the same before using the fit function with specifying 'smoothingspline' as method but unfortunately this is more of a general smoothing solution and not the exact quartic smoothing spline I need. I have tried a few thing with fitoptions as well but without success. Does anybody know how to do this for the quartic smoothing spline? Thanks again

Isn't there anyone who can help..? This must be possible to do in MATLAB.
