Abstract: In this paper we discuss the recurrent task of evaluating a linear functional defined by (generally infinitely many) linear constraints. We develop a theory for the stability of this problem and suggest a regularization procedure, based on orthogonal expansions. Simple and efficient computational schemes for evaluating the functional numerically are given.
