est]) obtained in the previous step using (3) is considered as the centre point and quadratic interpolation is again applied to the point ([DELTA][f.
Now, for applying quadratic interpolation again, first we have to find [DELTA][h.
To verify the superconvergence also for linear and quadratic interpolation, we pick some points in the exterior domain and calculate the rates, since we know the true solution in the exterior domain.
For the linear and quadratic interpolation case we almost obtain an additional order of convergence compared to the theoretical results predicted by Theorems 4.
