syntony algorithm

Explanation:
The term "syntony" is a legitimate one in English; however, it relates primarily to the areas of psychology, sociology, genetics, and electronics (particularly radio electronics). -- In the latter two fields, it's the condition in which two oscillating circuits have the same resonant frequency (i.e., the circuits are tuned to each other). In psychology it refers mainly to an individual's harmony with his environment, and in genetics it involves chromosomal similarity. -- A quick web search also turned up one unsubstantiated source that defines it as "the association of two curves through a third, co-tangential curve." -- In any event, there's no reason why the phrase "syntony algorithm" couldn't be used in data processing, as a borrowing from one or more of the other fields, even though it doesn't appear _per se_ anywhere on the Web. -- Good luck!
