Function name

What is the function increase the curve of the curve? Increases the slope of every data on the curve?

it sounds vaguely like you are looking for the exponential function

Exponential function didn't blend the inside of the curve.
I want something blend the middle portion of the curve with both tails at value 1,
with gentle or steep slope; both tails are at value 1.

Can you post a drawing of this curve?

Is the curve supposed to look like part of a sine wave (so that it has finite length), or should it be "bell-shaped", so that it has a horizontal asymptote and its length is infinite?

Similar to the curve with both contain at 1 y axis and 1 x axis

The function should allow gentler slope or steep slope but both contain at 1 y axis and 1 x axis

Try y = (1 - √x)^n, where n is at least 1 and needn't be an integer.

What was incorrect about it?

Use y = (1 - √|x|)^n, with x ∈ [-1, 1], for a "2-sided" curve.
