On q-interpolation formulae and their applications

M. R. Eslahchi and Mohammad Masjed-Jamei

Abstract

It is shown that the q-Taylor series corresponding to Jackson's q-difference operator can be generated by the Newton interpolation formulae and the related remainders can be therefore written as the residue of a Newton interpolation formula. The advantage of this approach is that some constraints such as q-integrability in a domain and existence of the q-derivatives of $f$ at zero up to order n are no longer necessary. Two q-quadrature formulae of weighted interpolatory type are derived in this direction and some numerical examples for approximating definite quadratures and solving ordinary differential equations are then given
