A repeated scanning algorithm for determining the minimax approximation to an arbitrary function by means of a piecewise linear function with a fixed number of variable knots is described, and it is compared to optimal and suboptimal methods.
Discrete data, feature generation, minimax approximation, piecewise linear function, waveform seghnentation.
