To summarize, contrary to the working hypothesis made in Sect. 9, that the innermost parts of rotation curves should always be cut out, circumstances appear to suggest that the application of a combination of the Mk II and Mk III auto-folders, each applied according to estimated value of , might result in an algorithm of greater effectiveness. However, since the precise final value of for any given rotation curve will depend on the folding process used, then it is clear that defining a strategy for choosing between the Mk II and the Mk III auto-folders will not necessarily be a simple process. In the following two sections, we describe the means by which we are able to deduce an effective working strategy.
