I consider the definition to be true in part.

It's the establishment of missing data within a set by reference to the pre-existing data eg filling in the gaps. Whether the supply of data is deceptive or without authorisation is irrelevant to the definition. The key is that it is both internal and derived from existing. It's a moot point whether the interpolation is necessarily valid or validated to an indisputable level, but I would hold that to be philosophically "good", it must be so.

As opposed to extrapolation where the data is established at the extreme and external to the existing dataset.

"As like in what? The N.H. RSA Chapter 528:16 reads at: http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/LIV/528/528-16.htm that: " . . . and shall be posted at one or more public places in the town where the sale is to be, and * in two adjoining towns, . . . " in that the slash-or as in and/or is inserted? We here in New Hampshire have the Article 29 [ https://www.nh.gov/glance/bill-of-rights.htm ] in our Bill of Rights that forbids [ * ] this in that only the Legislature can "suspend" a law, as defined as " temporarily prevent from continuing or being in force or effect. " as in like to erase the "and" word here by what? pretending that the slash-or has been added and so the one who does this is in-effect an interpolater ? Is there such a word? or -or interpolator ? I see at: https://www.cpp.edu/~pbsiegel/javascript/lininterpol.html it means what? some middle between the start and ending? as this graph at: https://inloop.github.io/interpolator/ to inject? "introduce (something) "and introduce = "bring (something, especially a product, measure, or concept) into use or operation for the first time. " So the person an introducer too eh? " https://www.dictionary.com/browse/introducer = " An instrument or stylet [ ** ] used to insert a catheter, an endotracheal tube, or similar flexible device into the body." of the text (  ) as in the person instrumental " serving as a means of pursuing an aim or policy. " of to add so really as to subtract!? And as for the word: stylet [ ** ] in: " ZOOLOGY (in an invertebrate) a small style, especially a piercing mouthpart of an insect. " but as applicable to a human being of the stylet is that of his either saying such corruption and/or with pen or pencil writing for to impress carbon or ink to paper on either the text or its effect afterwards to a wrong conclusion, of it a damage needing to be corrected [ * ] by a hearing / tongue-lashing by the injured party. Either within the forum or by an OUT-side :"check and balance", like here in N.H. of by the RSA Ch. 4:1 petition process.

Perhaps it is due to the types of people I tend to associate with, but I would reverse the order of the definitions. In my experience, the mathematical definition is the one most used and should be first, followed by the textual one. Anxious
