Accurate and efficient rational approximation schemes are presented for interpolating multidimensional scattered data with a novel weighted least-squares procedure including domain decomposition. Two particular representations of the method are formulated and the corresponding algorithms are implemented. Numerical tests on three- and six-dimensional model systems are carried out, demonstrating high efficiency and accuracy. This work was motivated by the need for multidimensional function approximation using irregular grids when solving quantum fluid dynamics equations, and the method should have broader physical applications.
