Writing for graduate students and researchers with experience in functional analysis and numerical methods, the authors describe applications for new procedures of approximation, most of which include approximate quasi-interpolation, interpolation, least square approximation, cubature of integral operations and wavelet approximations.
It would be no problem to install new counters there, but it would result in a bigger cubature (cubic space), further security equipment, additional staff and an increase in costs.

Early works of analysis include such topics as the binomial theorem and as a consequence from it the polynomial theorem, purely analytic proof of the theorem and three problems of rectification, complanation and cubature ("as a sample of a complete organization of the science of space"), with later analysis and the infinite represented by pure theory of numbers, theory of functions and improvements, and paradoxes of the infinite.

This consultation relates to topographic surveys of existing states, the establishment of project planning, implementation of points on site, control leveling and cubature during construction, and, building built drawings to end of work.
There are also good perspectives in the application to numerical cubature and to the numerical solution of PDEs by collocation and discrete least squares methods [45].
