Title:  The Barycentric Formula for Interpolation and Integration

Abstract:   We will introduce the barycentric formula for polynomial interpolation, which leads to an excellent interpolation algorithm that is fast and stable. Similar formula can be derived for the Cauchy integral formula to provide an algorithm that solves the boundary value problem of Laplace equation. Such algorithm proves to be spectrally accurate everywhere in the domain including points that are almost touching the boundary.
