The main contribution of this paper is twofold: On the one hand, a general framework for performing Hermite interpolation on Riemannian manifolds is presented. The method is applicable, if algorithms for the associated Riemannian exponential and logarithm mappings are available. This includes many of the matrix manifolds that arise in practical Riemannian computing application such as data analysis and signal processing, computer vision and image processing, structured matrix optimization

This provides general error bounds for manifold data processing methods that rely on Riemannian normal coordinates. Numerical experiments are conducted for the compact Stiefel manifold of rectangular column-orthogonal matrices. As use cases, we compute Hermite interpolation curves for orthogonal matrix factorizations such as the singular value decomposition and the QR-decomposition.
