 English translation:interpolation node Explanation:Stützstelle = interpolation node (Eisenreich & Sube Dictionary of Mathematics) Stützpunkt = interpolation node (Eisenreich/Sube) or interpolation point (Siemens Dict. of EE, Power Engineering and Automation)

 The answer not only fits the context but also helps [a non-mathematician] to distinguish the translation of Stütztelle from Stützpunkt in related contexts. (You've probably seen my reponse in Flefo; also the explanation by Judy Ann Schön.) Thanks again, Tom 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

grid points

Explanation:
Fulcrum is too "mechanical"

grid points, or, if the axes have been mentioned, x-values, is what is
being referred to. Intermediate values are then probably interpolated.
