# extrapolation watch

1. which is the easiest way (and by "easy", i mean "not-a-lot-of-steps" ) to extrapolate a function?

That's easy.

Sorry, did you want the extrapolation to actually be good as well?

[It is impossible to answer the question without some specification of what properties you want your extrapolation to have].

no idea what you're on about. if i give you a straight line and tell u to guess where it's going, you would follow the gradient; if i give you a parabola and tell u to guess where it's going, you'd follow the curve; if i gave you a decaying exponential, [...].

now i'm giving you a squiggle. i was thinking of estimating the function using fourier series and then following the long ass trig function, but i don't know if that's possible.
