Watson, G. A
Approximation with respect to what is now known as the
Chebyshev norm was proposed by Laplace (1799) in a study of
the approximate solution of inconsistent linear equations.
However, the first systematic investigation of the problem
was carried out by Chebyshev (1854, 1859, 1881). The
mainstream of the early theoretical investigation was the
study of a restricted subset of an important general class
of real linear problems.
