spline

1. n. [Reservoir Characterization]
A mathematical procedure for connecting data points with a smooth line. The line does not necessarily go through the data points, but its direction and curvature are affected by all the data points. The "stiffness" of the line is controlled by a variable (lambda) in the algorithm.
