On geometric Lagrange interpolation by quadratic parametric patches ## AbstractIn the paper, the geometric Lagrange interpolation by quadratic parametric patches is considered. The freedom of parameterization is used to raise the number of interpolated points from the usual 6 up to 10, i.e., the number of points commonly interpolated by a cubic patch. At least asymptotically, the existence of a quadratic geometric interpolant is confirmed for data taken on a parametric surface with locally nonzero Gaussian curvature and interpolation points based upon a three-pencil lattice. Also, the asymptotic approximation order 4 is established.
