    How do I say this?

    Hi there.
    I am writing a report. Somewhere in it i need to mention that I have approximated some things in order to reduce the complexity of the problem and the approximation is on the higher side. In other words the approximation will be towards the safer side.
    How do form a sentence for this?

    I have written this, but i m not sure if this is correct.
    "The very intricate and precise curves and elements in the model were approximated with compensatory curves so as to account for the loss in the CPU memory required""

    Is the above statement correct. If not, please correct it.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    "The very intricate and precise curves and elements in the model were approximated with compensatory curves to avoid the huge CPU memory required by the originals. The results to the representation of the data are minimal.

    As an NES but not a teacher, you may be able to bring in the "safer side" aspect by using "conservatively approximated", provided it doesn't change the meaning with reference to "compensatory curves".
