Abstract : The system described allows a user to enter a curve into an IBM 360/40 computer via a RAND Tablet, and interactively to specify various ways of fitting, editing and displaying the curve on an IBM 2250 scope. It was developed primarily as a tool to extend the analysis of multivariate function representation from tabular methods to polynomial methods.
