Add a scalar for each point in the FloatArray.  Here is some python
pseudo code:

 fa = vtkFloatArray()
 pnts = vtkPoints()
 # create your points.
 for i in range(pnts.GetNumberOfPoints()):
     pnt = pnts.GetPoint(0)
     scalar = function(pnt) # your function

Now you can use the vtkFloatArray to do what you want.   For instance
if the points are part of a vtkPolyData object you can do this:

 pd = vtkPolyData()
