Abstract: This paper discusses a nonlinear sequence-to-sequence transformation, known as the transform, which is used to accelerate the convergence of an infinite series. A brief history of the transform is given; a number of theorems are established which enable one to make effective use of the transform, and several examples are presented to illustrate this effectiveness.
