Language Translation
A. F. R. Brown
Pages: 1-8
DOI: 10.1145/320911.320912
I must begin by admitting, as is scarcely necessary, that. I am at least several months away from being able to feed a new piece of French text into a computer and have an English translation come out at the other end. In trying out my basic...

SWAC Experiments on the Use of Orthogonal Polynomials for Data Fitting
Marcia Ascher, George E. Forsythe
Pages: 9-21
DOI: 10.1145/320911.320913

A Chebycheff Fitting Criterion
A. Spitzbart, D. L. Shell
Pages: 22-31
DOI: 10.1145/320911.320914

On the Truncation Error of Discrete Approximations to the Solutions of Dirichlet Problems in a Domain with Corners
Pentti Laasonen
Pages: 32-38
DOI: 10.1145/320911.320915
The solution for a Dirichlet problem on a given plane domain and with given boundary values is usually approximated in numerical computation by its discrete analog defined and determined on an approximating set of net points. It can be proved...

Error Bounds for the Runge-Kutta Single-Step Integration Process
John W. Carr, III
Pages: 39-44
DOI: 10.1145/320911.320916
Although numerous writers have stated that the class of single-step (“Runge-Kutta”—like) methods of numerical integration of ordinary differential equations are stable under calculational or round-off error, no one has given...
