Approximating functions by Newton Polynomials. With an Implementation in Rust.

In one of my recent stories I gave a little report about Taylor expansions and its applications.

In order to approximate a function by a Taylor polynomial, we need to know its derivatives. Though, in many data-driven applications we do not even know explicitly the function itself. That is, often we only know the function’s values…
