Ten Digit Problems

Trefethen, Lloyd N. (2011) Ten Digit Problems. Technical Report. Springer. (Submitted)



Most quantitative mathematical problems cannot be solved exactly, but there are powerful algorithms for solving many of them numerically to a specified degree of precision like ten digits or ten thousand. In this article three difficult problems of this kind are presented, and the story is told of the SIAM 100-Dollar, 100-Digit Challenge. The twists and turns along the way illustrate some of the flavor of algorithmic continuous mathematics.
