Recent results reveal that the family of barycentric rational interpolants introduced by Floater and Hormann is very well-suited for the approximation of functions as well as their derivatives, integrals and primitives. Especially in the case of equidistant interpolation nodes, these infinitely smooth interpolants offer a much better choice than their polynomial analogue. A natural and important question concerns the condition of this rational approximation method. In this paper we extend a recent study of the Lebesgue function and constant associated with Berrut’s rational interpolant at equidistant nodes to the family of Floater–Hormann interpolants, which includes the former as a special case.
