Abstract : Formulas are presented for the direct and inverse interpolation of functional data which use the function and its higher derivatives at two points. These formulas were specially tailored for use with the Obrechkoff integration formulas employed in the general space trajectory program. They may be applied to any problems in which the higher derivative data is available. (Author)
