- adj. Alternative spelling of piecewise linear.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The integral itself can be approximated by computing the value of f (β) = Eβ [S (X)] for a ﬁ nite number of values of β and ˆ approximating f (β) by a piecewise-linear function f (β) for the intermediate values of β.
I wonder if the piecewise-linear graphs are easier to read than piecewise-constant would be.
Instead, the models are piecewise-linear approximations of diode curves and transistor characteristics.
When simulating high-speed systems in Spice, you can use an analog-filter network instead of PWL (piecewise-linear) edge-shaping because it better represents how real signals behave.
The precise formulation depends on whether one works in the category of smooth, piecewise-linear, or topological manifolds
