Overview

This volume is derived from invited talks given at a meeting celebrating Michael Powell's sixtieth birthday and focuses on innovative work in optimization and approximation theory. The individual papers, written by leading authorities in their subjects, are a mix of expository articles and surveys on new work. They have all been reviewed and edited to form a coherent volume that represents the state of the art in an important discipline within mathematics, with highly relevant applications throughout science and engineering.
