Abstract: It is well known that the interpolating cubic spline can be viewed as a solution of an optimal control problem. This fascinating connection between the classical approximation theory and the theory of optimal control has been explored by researches from both sides in different times and often independently. In this talk I will review some developments on spline interpolation with constraints.  In particular, I will show how a long-standing open question about super-linear convergence of Newton’s method for best convex interpolation has been settled.
