Question: Evaluation of a spline function is very slow, how can I speed it up?

Hi there!

I wrote a piece of code which spits out the numerical datapoints (x,y(x)) corresponding to a function y(x). So that the result is accurate, I need quite a lot of data points - currently I am working with 5k.

In order to work with this function later, I interpolated it with a Spline. For instance, I would like to sample the function values on a fifferent grid, etc.. However the evaluation of this function really takes up hell of a lot of time, and the reason seems to be, that it, being a spline on 5k nodes, is simply a huge expression.

Is there a better way to do this? Are other fitting functions than a spline maybe better suited?

Thanks for help!
