- Take approximation

- Self-consistency

- The dynamics of scalar fields has some common features
- The exists an approximate relation between w and
- For thawing models, the dynamics can be approximated by CPL parametrization with degenerated relation between w0 and wa
- The reduced degeneracy helps improve the constraint on w(z)
