Abstract : The purpose of the report is to describe some selected data analysis, numerical analysis and computer programming problems performed under the contract. The problems range from a new method for evaluating integral equations where the integrand is not well behaved to a detailed study of the techniques of exponential curve fitting. Also included are some problems requiring straight-forward data analysis. Each problem selected is presented in capsule form and the analysis and programming techniques leading to a solution are outlined. It should be noted that some of these problems are still being analyzed because of their complexity and continuing character. (Author)
