The report deals with minimax approximations to functions defined on the real line. These approximations are of particular use to mathematicians having access to a digital computer facility. The cases considered are for functions defined as discrete points on the Cartesian plane and for continuous, bounded functions defined on a closed interval of the real line. A method for obtaining the approximations using linear programming techniques is presented for each case. An analysis of the error function and a brief outline of the computer program are included.
