On Configurations of Points on the Sphere and Applications to Approximation of Holomorphic Functions by Lagrange Interpolants

  • Phung Van Manh


We study certain configurations of points on the unit sphere in \(\mathbb {R}^N\). As an application, we prove that the sequence of Lagrange interpolation polynomials of holomorphic functions at certain Chung–Yao lattices converge uniformly to the interpolated functions.
