In the mathematical field of numerical analysis, interpolation is a method of constructing new data points within the range of a discrete set of known data points. In engineering and science, one often has a number of data points, obtained by sampling or experimentation, which represent the values of a function for a limited number of values of an independent variable. It is often required to interpolate (i.e., estimate) the value of that function for an intermediate value of the independent variable.
Student 1: Bro I suck at numerical techniques!
Student 2: Just because you can't do interpolation doesn't mean you suck at numerical techniques.

Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

Context-in-language as a grid of vectors with one dimension as time and the other dimension as light.

The grid has four corners: high-time, low-light (high context); low-time low-light; high-time high-light; low-time high-light (low-context).

This corresponds to low time-preference cultures and high time preference cultures.
Interpolation is a lacework of vectors where one side is light and the other side is time.

Interpolation emerges from the intersection of the panformalist line with the transfinite point at the center of space.

The radial rotation of the panformalistic line causes light to scatter in a grid: orthogonally to the contingent-line.

n. The way that a good majority of mainstream hip-hop songs get their melodies. Technically, it's a form of sampling; an interpolation is basically borrowing (or stealing) the melody of another song and recording it as your own. In theory, it's supposed to be done legally, although there have been cases of artists reusing melodies without permission, which have led to lawsuits.
Girl Singing "Changes": "That's just the way it is! Things'll never be the same!" That's my favorite 2pac song!
Music Snob: 2pac didn't write that! Bruce Hornsby did! It's an "interpolation"!
