Abstract: We develop and analyze a least squares procedure for approximating the homogeneous Dirichlet problem for the wave equation in a bounded domain $ \Omega $ in $ {R^N}$. This procedure is based on the pure implicit scheme for time differencing. Surprisingly, it is the normal derivative of u rather than u itself which must be included in the boundary functional. This normal derivative is an unknown quantity. We show that it may be set equal to zero while retaining the $ O(k)$ accuracy of the pure implicit scheme. The penalty is that one must use smoother trial functions to obtain this accuracy.
