Nonlinear bias is a component of bias that cannot be represented by a linear relationship between the measured and true values.
A measurement procedure is linear when there is a mathematically verified straight-line
relationship between the measured and true values. It is an important parameter as it allows
linear interpolation of results between points.
Bias due to nonlinearity is measured as the difference between the linear fit and the best fitting polynomial fit.
