Forcing strictly increasing abscissas, and [c.sub.4] = 1, the optimal SSP method has C [approximately equal to] 0.450 and the following coefficients:
Observe that a zooming operation means rescaling by the same amount abscissas and ordinates like seeing the intersection point as using magnifying glasses of increasing power.
The latter ones bear the following properties: such a hyperbola intersects with the respective straight hyperbola at the ordinate y = 0.5 and the abscissa equal to the double mass of the element; the line y = 0.5 is the axis of symmetry for the arcs; the real and tangential lines of such hyperbolas meet each other; the normal of such a hyperbola is the real axis and the tangential line of another hyperbola of this kind.
In this histogram, we look for all the abscissas corresponding to a pixel density equal to WW.

Let f be the abscissas of all points in a plane and g be the ordinates of these points, then h = f [disjunction] g is the set of coordinates of all points in the plane.
