Abstract:

The paper discusses how to approximate a function gx from one side by a linear combination of functions f sub 1 x, ..., f sub n x so as to minimize the area between the two. It discusses the problem as one of finding the point where a moving hyperplane last touches a convex set and an approximate procedure based on linear programming methods. It gives details of an algorithm for solving the problem, examples, and applications to Monte Carlo Theory--generating random variables in a computer. Author
