Abstract : A variety of statistical problems of optimal grouping, spacing and stratification are seen to be best L sub 2 (0,1) free knot piecewise constant approximation problems. This allows for the development of conditions that insure the existence and uniqueness of solutions, a computational algorithm and simple approximate solutions. In addition this approach is seen to provide insight into the relationships between the various problems considered. (Author)
