For linear interpolation the auc function computes the area under the curve using the composite trapezoid rule. For area under a spline interpolation, auc uses the splinefun function in combination with the integrate to calculate a numerical integral. The auc function can handle unsorted time values, missing observations, ties for the time values, and integrating over part of the area or even outside the area.

A vector of ages (in years)
