Pay Per Last N Shares (PPLNS) - Block rewards are distributed among the last shares, disregarding round boundaries. 
In the accurate implementation, the number of shares is determined so that their total will be a specified quantity of score (where the score of a share is the inverse of the difficulty). 
Most pools use a naive implementation based on a fixed number of shares or a fixed multiple of the difficulty. 
The share-variance can be reduced at the cost of increased maturity time, but there is no way to decrease the long-term pool-variance. 
PPLNS is used to stop pool hoppers, the more you put in the more you get out.
