According to my calculations you have to pick 0<b<1 and a>0.

E.g. b=1/2 and a=1


Laurent was obviously a bit faster than me doing the math, but it's nice to have a result double checked :)

Well, if the only requirement is that y0 < 0.5 for x=0 and y1 > 0.5 for x=1, then for 0 < b < 1 and a > 0 it should work.
