Definitions for "Fairness"
Forming part of psychological assessment, fairness concerns the equality of opportunity for members of different (e. g. ethnic) groups during personnel selection, using aptitude diagnostics processes.
this is an important organizing word in the concept of justice. Fairness has come to mean that each individual in a community will be treated in the way most appropriate for that individual. This does not mean that every one is treated the same, but that everyone is treated appropriately for that individual. Fairness means that everyone is treated as they ought to be treated. This idea is incomplete because what is appropriate for each person remains to be decided.
A fair assessment will not disadvantage any person and will take into account the characteristics of the person being assessed

Keywords:  spline, unfair, curvature, hull, cubic
This is a subjective, human term, which refers to the smoothness of a hull surface. There is no mathematical definition of fairness, although some define it as continuity of the second derivative. This may be a necessary condition, but it is not sufficient. A cubic B-spline guarantees second derivative continuity, but can easily be unfair. A better definition relates to the continuity of curvature of the curve or surface.
