Many approximations are linear, that's, agree to the main of super-position, and should profitably be studied through the speculation of linear areas. ``Linear approximation'' units forth the pertinent components of that conception, with specific recognition to the major areas $C_n, B, K$, and Hilbert area, areas that are strong instruments within the research, appraisal, and layout of approximations, starting from formulation of mechanical quadrature to approximations of operators through operators. since it offers an in depth therapy of a well timed and demanding topic, ``Linear approximation'' is of curiosity to scientists and engineers in addition to to mathematicians. The publication contains labored illustrative examples and discussions of the explanation of its formula of difficulties.

S. M. Nikolskii's work on approximate integration is of interest. Nikolskii has, among other things, determined a number of formulas which minimize the factor J"|K| in ( 1 : 29) in the cases n = 1 and 2 [1, § 2 ; 3, § 10]. Golomb and Weinberger [1] consider questions of best approximation from another point of view. When a formula of approximation will be repeatedly used—as, for example, by a computing machine—it may be important to study th e set of all possible pertinent formulas with a view to choosing one which is best in a reasonable sense relative to the information available or expected about the input functions x.

I, 26 1. FUNCTIONALS IN TERMS OF DERIVATIVES In (45) and (48) F operates on its arguments as functions of s; t is a parameter. The function \fs is defined in (12). • PROOF. Let a be any number in J. Then, by Theorem 8, (9) holds with c< = F[(s - a)<«] = 0, i < n, since F vanishes for degree n — 1. This establishes (44), with K satisfying (11) = (48). It is easily verified that # a , t, s) = 6(t, a) - 6(t, *), by considering the cases a~~s,a K(t) = s (cf. Chapter 11). , since JF is zero for degree n — 1. ~~

In the literature there has been what seems to me an undue emphasis on kernels K which do not change sign. This is perhaps because of the fact that I Xn(s)*($) ds = xn(a) K(S) ds, for a suitable a e J, if K does not change sign and if xn e Co. In practice this relation is usually used for getting the sharp appraisal (23) of the integral on the left, an appraisal which we have obtained directly and which is just one of many possible appraisals. I do not share the view that it is desirable that K be of one sign.
