[SciPy-User] Is a worked paper example appropriate for documentation?
I am wondering if simple recipes for recreating paper figures are
appropriate for documentation, and if so, where should they be put?
I have code to recreate figure 1 from E T Y Lee's paper "Choosing nodes
in parametric curve interpolation" (doi: 0010448589900031). I know very
little about interpolation, but I worked this example because of the
response to mathematica SE question # 10273. It seems to me like a good
exploration of some of the more esoteric features of interpolation, and
it spans a number of separate scipy.interpolate functions.
Would adding code like this help or clutter existing documentation?
As a side note I feel that I am late to the party for missing by
Docathon a week.
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from scipy.interpolate import splprep, splev, CubicSpline
