But isn't your independent variable in this case the probability (curProbV)? If that's the case, it seems that you should instead model the variance result.

As an example, instead of doing lookups for the variance, you could use the following formulas.

For curProbV values of 25-3825, the variance shown in the array is approximately: \[variance=5.4 \times curProbV^{0.53}\]

and from 3826-7225, the variance is approximately:
\[variance=7.3 \times (7250-curProbV)^{0.5}\]

The resulting values aren't exactly the same as the table lookups, but they're very close. And it's not clear to me if those differences are even a problem. For example, instead of intermediate values all being "ceiled" to the next variance in the table, they will return a unique result. Is that a good or bad thing?
