The exponential component is correlated with the presence of signal sequence noise, and the polynomial component is correlated with the presence of detectable signal sequence spikes distinguishable from the noise. 
01/23/14 20140025194  Numerical controller including corner multiple curves inserting unit A numerical controller configured to control a machine tool for machining the workpiece on the basis of a machining program composed of a plurality of blocks includes a corner multiple curves inserting unit. This corner multiple curves inserting unit inserts, between consecutive two blocks, three cubic polynomial curves in which a position, a direction and a curvature are continuous and the distances from these two blocks are within a prescribed allowable tolerance, if a direction or a curvature between these two blocks is discontinuous in the machining program..
