Taylor polynomials do compute a polynomial that in many cases does approximate the function, but it uses the value of the function and its derivatives at one point, not the value of the function at many points.
Lagrange multipliers are used in "constrained optimization": you want to find the largest value of a function of several values, e.g.
Lagrange was a very great and prolific mathematician, and he did a lot of work, so you see his name in many different areas of mathematics.

 Newton polynomial - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the mathematical field of numerical analysis, a Newton polynomial, named after its inventor Isaac Newton, is the interpolation polynomial for a given set of data points in the Newton form.
The Newton polynomial is sometimes called Newton's divided differences interpolation polynomial because the coefficients of the polynomial are calculated using divided differences.
