Description

The area of numerical computation tends to break somewhat naturally into three subareas which, for want of better terms, we will call sampling, linear algebra, and theory. This is a gross oversimplification and these terms are not very descriptive, but they are useful labels for our discussion here. This material discusses numerical methods that are based on sampling and linear algebra. Reprint from the Mathematica Conference, June 1992, Boston. 92 pages.
