We introduce and study extensions and modifications of the Gordon-Wixom transfinite barycentric interpolation scheme (Gordon and Wixom, SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 11(5), 909–933, 1974). We demonstrate that the modified Gordon-Wixom scheme proposed in Belyaev and Fayolle (Comput. Graph. 51, 74–80, 2015) reproduces harmonic quadratic polynomials in convex domains. We adapt the scheme for dealing with the exterior of a bounded domain and for the exterior of a disk, where we demonstrate that our interpolation formula reproduces harmonic functions. Finally, we show how to adapt the Gordon-Wixom approach for approximating p-harmonic functions and to derive computationally efficient approximations of the solutions to boundary value problems involving the p-Laplacian.
