The problems of conditional optimization of the uniform (or C-) norm for polynomials and rational functions arise in various branches of science and technology. Their numerical solution is notoriously difficult in case of high degree functions. The book develops the classical Chebyshev's approach which gives analytical representation for the solution in terms of Riemann surfaces. The techniques born in the remote (at the first glance) branches of mathematics such as complex analysis, Riemann surfaces and Teichmuller theory, foliations, braids, topology are applied to approximation problems.
The key feature of this book is the usage of beautiful ideas of contemporary mathematics for the solution of applied problems and their effective numerical realization. This is one of the few books where the computational aspects of the higher genus Riemann surfaces are illuminated. Effective work with the moduli spaces of algebraic curves provides wide opportunities for numerical experiments in mathematics and theoretical physics.Ã¢

From the reviews:
"This book develops the classical Chebyshev approach to optimization problems in polynomial spaces. This approach yields an analytical representation for the solution in terms of Riemann surfaces. The text includes numerous problems, exercises, and illustrations. ... In this book, methods from various areas of mathematics are used. ... It has more than 150 pages throughout which the author makes a lot of effort to give as many results as possible, and yet provide lots of details to make the reading easier." (Konstantin Malyutin, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1252, 2012)
