How about if you would just fit coeffs for polynomials F1,F2,G2,F3 in function F1(a)=F2(n)+G2(n)*F3(i) such that error would be minimized for every combination of a,n,i in specified range ? This is of course the approach I already proposed. Indeed you could attempt to fit smooth curves. In many cas...

### Re: Half of a mortgage nomogram

[quote="RonDoerfler"][quote="Glenbarnett"]I have made the right half of this equation into a nomogram (i.e. the tricky part), following largely the "one curvy scale" discussion I posted here recently. [/quote] I understand why you might expect the a and i scales to be l...

### Half of a mortgage nomogram

The mortgage nomogram Leif was describing has two main parts. If P is the loan amount (P stands for Principal), m is the monthly payment, i is the monthly interest rate, and n is the term in months then P/m = a = [1-(1+i)^{-n}]/i Of course, the user wants the interest quoted as an annual rate and th...

### Anamorphosis with back to back scales

The usual double-anamorphosis (due to Lafay) that is in the books is generally better than the simpler single anamorphosis - which can still be useful when all of the curves on the intersection chart are similarly curved. However, there is a situation in which adjusting a single scale is more useful...

### A recommended paper

I was going through some of my old nomography stuff, and came across this one again - I've been looking for it lately, and I'm glad I found it, because it was better than I remembered. If you have access to it, I highly recommend Philip Lyle's paper (note only one L in the first name!): Philip Lyle ...

Is it possible to do one of the following two: (i) have a CAPTCHA or something on signup, so bots cant sign themselves up? An easy one would be to answer a simple question about nomograms or something. There could always be an alternative route via email or something where you just explain why you n...
