Abstract : This locating system, the TAB system, was designed to facilitate the user's task of finding the desired section of the tables as quickly as possible. The cover contains a tab for the desired number of data points per set and the degree of the polynomial, thus eliminating the need for an exhaustive table of contents. By combining the tabs for the degree of the polynomial and the data points, the user is able to locate the desired portion of the tables with a minimum of time and effort. Each set of coefficients corresponding to 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, and 21 data points has a tab on its respective page. By combining one of these tabs with the proper tab for the degree of the polynomial, any set of data points in the tables can easily be found. (Author)
