Anyone who wants to look at sunlight naturally wipes his eye clear first, in order to make, at any rate, some **approximation** to the purity of that on which he looks; and a person wishing to see a city or country goes to the place in order to do so.

2

Personally, I don't see old economics and behavioural economics as opposed. It is useful to assume people are rational as a good **approximation** to their long term behaviour, but it would be unwise not to think how in practice their behaviour may deviate from that simplifying assumption.

3

I tell students, 'If you are learning from YouTube I almost don't want to teach you because what you learn from YouTube it takes 10 times as long to unlearn.' They do an **approximation** of the centre of the note, an **approximation** of the interpretation, a cloned version.

4

The first **approximation** in this future that we're looking at is that everyone will be physically well off. They will have a great abundance in material goods, and I think that will soften some of the conflicts we see now.

6

If that enabled us to predict the succeeding situation with the same **approximation**, that is all we require, and we should say that the phenomenon had been predicted, that it is governed by the laws.

The Design of Yet most such problems are NP-hard; unless P = NP, there are no efficient algorithms to find optimal solutions. This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions.
