Abstract : A systematic method of constructing formulae, together with error terms, is given for use in interpolation, extrapolation, differentiation, and integration. Both closed and open type formulae are developed, using ordinates, and based on Lagrange's interpolation formulae for equal intervals. The procedure was suggested by Professor H. H. Aiken several years ago at Harvard University. The whole procedure may be extended easily to obtain cubature formulae and formulae used for surface fitting.
