This volume comprises the proceedings of the second Shrivenham conference on Algorithms for Approximation. The term 'approximation' here refers to 'the approximation of functions and data by similar functions', and leads to such topics as curve and surface fitting, spline and piecewise polynomial methods, finite element modelling, and computer-aided design. Applications are given to a wide variety of areas such as surveying, meteorology, radar antenna and acoustic array design, topography, engineering metrology, and CAD/CAM. Emphasis at the meeting was placed on the development of useful algorithms, and on practical applications in defence and industry.

In addition, some 40 submitted papers were selected and presented on a multitude of topics such as multivariate interpolation, optimization methods, constrained problems, spline fitting, data modelling, and applications in microwave measurement, isotropic antennas, sound measurement, and digitized contours.
