AbstractThis thesis studies two aspects of polynomial interpolation theory. The first part sets forth explicit formulas for the coefficients of polynomial interpolants to implicit functions. A formula for the higher-order derivatives of implicit functions appears as a limiting case of these formulas. The second part delves into certain configurations of points in space — generalized principal lattices — that are well suited as interpolation points. Applying the theory of real algebraic curves then allows the construction of many new examples of such configurations.
