#' @title interpolated splines algorithm to fill missing values

#' @description
#' This main function fills gaps in monovariate or multivariate data
#' by SVD-imputation which is closely related to
#' expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm with splines interpolation
#' @param y a numeric data.frame or matrix of data with gaps
#' @param nembed  integer value controlling
#' embedding dimension (must be > 1 for monovariate data)
#' @param nsmo integer value controlling cutoff time  scale
#' in number of samples. Set it to 0 if only one single time scale is desired.
#' @param threshold1 numeric value controllingthe stop of the iterations after
#'  the relative energy change is < threshold
#' @param niter numeric value controlling the  maximum number of iterations
#' @param  ncomp  controls the number of significant components.
#' It has to be specified for running in automatic mode.
#' Default (0) leads to manual selection during the algorithm
#' @param  displ boolean controlling the display of some information in
#' the console during the algorithm
#' @details
#'  The method decomposes the data into two time scales, which are processed
#' separately and then merged at the end. The cutoff time scale (nsmo) is
#' expressed in number of samples. A splines "filter" is used for filtering.
#' Monovariate data must be embedded first (nembed>1).
#' In the initial data set, gaps are supposed to be filled in with NA !!.
#'
#' The three tuneable (hyper)parameters are :
#' \describe{
#' \item{\code{ncomp}}
#' \item{\code{nsmo}}
#' \item{\code{nembed}}
#' }
#' @return A list with the following elements:
#' \describe{
#'   \item{\code{y.filled}}{The same dataset as y but with gaps filled}
#'   \item{\code{w.distSVD}}{The distribution of the weights of the SVD}
#'   \item{\code{errorByComp}}{Numeric vector of length \code{niter} (??)
#'   containing the errors associated to each iterations( or comp?)}
#' }
#' But only the first one really affects the outcome. A separation into
#' two scales only (with a threshold between 50–100 days) isenough to properly
#' capture both short- and long-term evolutions, and embedding dimensions of
#' D = 2−5 are usually adequate for reconstructing daily averages. The
#' determination of the optimum parameters and validation of the results is
#' preferably made by cross-validation.
