The generation of smooth curves from a given set of data points is a very important problem in the field of Computer Aided Geometric Design. Cubic splines are widely used in practical applications, because of its simple mathematics and computation. However, these curves could sometimes oscillate and introduce unwanted inflexions. This paper develops an iterative method similar to Kjellander's to eliminate these oscillations and inflexions.
