Subject: Which interpolation?
From a very slow simulation I got y= f(x):

x y

5 0.8048174

6 0.8194384

...

44 0.9706268

47 0.9724846

...

48765 0.9999756

53765 0.9999776

For every x, I stop the simulation when the confidence interval for y is

less than 2,5*10^-6 (with 99% of confidence).

I can't calculate all the x's (because the simulation is very slow), so

I need to interpolate; for example, I don't have y(45) or y(46).

Using the Levenberg-Marquardt Least Squares Fitting, the best equation I

found gives an error that is too high (about 10^-4 for small x's).

Then I thought to use a cubic spline, but I notice some "fluctuations"

on the tails.

Should I use LM or spline?

Thanks
