Information and Computation

Traub, Joseph F.; Wozniakowski, Henryk

Our work is based on two theses: (1) most problems are approximately solved; that is, we live with uncertainty; (2) for problems with partial or approximate information, the usual algorithm-centered approach can be supplemented, and sometimes replaced, by the information-centered approach. We briefly discuss these two theses here. Much of this article will be devoted to their expansion, illustrated by numerous examples.
