Abstract:

In this note is is shown that the problem of minimizing the maximum deviation can be solved using the quasilinearization format and employing linear programming at each stage of the calculation. In the case where the observational errors are all of approximately the same magnitude, or are all of the same relative magnitudes, this procedure seems to have substantial advantages over the method of least squares.
