How can i interpolate 1-D data, whit y especified values?

1 view (last 30 days)
Dear community
I want my interpolation to contain some specified values:
x = [1 2 3 4 6];
y = x^2;
xx = linspace(x(1),x(end),80)
vq = interp1(x,y,xx,'spline')
Let say that I want that vq contains y = 4.5 (or a set of values), and i have the x* value(s) that do y(x*) = 4.5 ( I alredy know that in this example y = 3.5 is a little off)
Thanks in advance.

Unless I'm missing something, it sounds like you just want to interpolate x from y, instead of y from x:
x = [1 2 3];
y = [1 4 9];
yq = y(1) : 0.5 : y(end);
xq = interp1(y,x,yq,'spline');
[xq' yq']
ans = 17×2

Thanks you very much, I think I was a little cofused in how the problem was written.
