Okay, so this is I could say delta function day.
Introduction In OpenGL, we can display a texture to small or large area. Displaying a texture in the same size requires copying all texels texture units to output pixels. If we want to create a large image from a small texture, OpenGL has to create many intermediate pixels.
This process of creating intermediate pixels is called as Interpolation. OpenGL provides two interpolation methods to create a large texture image.
In addition to OpenGL interpolation types, here different versions of Bi-Cubic interpolation are implemented in pixel shaders. Bi-Cubic interpolation can provide good quality image on creating large image from small textures.

Small area of flower is zoomed with different interpolations. Different versions of interpolation have quality difference. Details of different interpolations are explained in the below sections. Background Interpolation is a "Process used to estimate an unknown value between two known values by utilizing a common mathematical relation".
ZoomInterpolation creates zoomed image with different interpolation types. OpenGL provides a Bi-Linear interpolation at its maximum. When zooming a very small texture area to large area, Bi-Linear provides a less quality. Bi-Linear interpolation creates an intermediate pixel with the help of nearest 4 pixels.
Bi-Cubic interpolation, a high quality version, creates an intermediate pixel with the help of nearest 16 pixels.
In the nearest interpolation, intermediate pixels are created with the nearest valid pixel. This kind of interpolated images are blocky since same data is copied to intermediate pixels. Edge of the flower seems to be a "stair case". We can remove this stair case through better interpolation methods.
We can use following code to achieve nearest interpolation in OpenGL fixed function pipeline. Therefore it is called Bi-Linear interpolation. Here "stair case" effect is not visible. But we can see a shade of yellow and green through the edge of flower, and a small "stair case" is visible at some edges of the flower.Let f(x) be the cubic function.
Then, we will write the function into the standard format: f(x) = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d. Now to dteremine a,b,c,and d values, we will subsitute the points given. Which five Google technologies would you like to research for your Final Case Studies?

Set the drawing transformation matrix for combined rotating and scaling. This option sets a transformation matrix, for use by subsequent -draw or -transform options.. The matrix entries are entered as comma-separated numeric values either in quotes or without spaces.
where ρis the density, γ = Cp / Cv is the adiabatic index (ratio of specific heats), e = CvT is the internal energy per unit mass (the "specific internal energy"), Cv is the specific heat at constant volume, and Cp is the specific heat at constant pressure.

In algebra, a cubic function is a function of the form = + + +in which a is nonzero.. Setting f(x) = 0 produces a cubic equation of the form + + + = The solutions of this equation are called roots of the polynomial f(x).If all of the coefficients a, b, c, and d of the cubic equation are real numbers, then it has at least one real root (this is true for all odd degree polynomials).
