In literature:

Lay this smooth upon the Cakes with a Knife, and smoothen it with a feather.
"The Closet of Sir Kenelm Digby Knight Opened" by Kenelm Digby
Perhaps you would write to her and soften and smoothen matters.

In poetry:

Whence cometh such tender rapture?
Those curls—they are not the first ones
I've smoothened, and I've already
Known lips—that were darker than yours.
"Whence Cometh Such Tender Rapture?" by Marina Ivanova Tsvetaeva

In science:

The number variance is defined as Σ2 (n) = var{nk }, and the ∆3 statistic is obtained from a convolution of Σ2 (n) with a ’smoothening’-kernel.
On the spectrum of the QCD Dirac operator
If the microscopic spectral density of such ’smoothened’ field configurations is given by chRMM, one certainly expects that this is the case for lattice QCD configurations.
Random matrix model approach to chiral symmetry
The number variance is defined as the variance of the number of levels in a stretch of the spectrum that contains n levels on average, and ∆3 (n) is obtained by a smoothening of Σ2 (n).
Spectral Fluctuations of the QCD Dirac Operator
Left: Form factor of the unitary top smoothened by a local time average over the window ∆n = 20.
Fluctuations and Ergodicity of the Form Factor of Quantum Propagators and Random Unitary Matrices
The idea is that the kernel serves to smoothen the operator valued distributions into well behaved operators.
