## Waveform Distortion Data for Bivariate Interpolation

### Description

akima is a list with components x, y and z which represents a smooth surface of z values at selected points irregularly distributed in the x-y plane.

The data was taken from a study of waveform distortion in electronic circuits, described in: Hiroshi Akima, "A Method of Bivariate Interpolation and Smooth Surface Fitting Based on Local Procedures", CACM, Vol. 17, No. 1, January 1974, pp. 18-20.
