Abstract: The calculation of linear one-sided approximations is considered, using the discrete ${L_p}$ norm. For $p = 1$ and $p = \infty$, this gives rise to a linear programming problem, and for $1 < p < \infty$, to a convex programming problem. Numerical results are presented, including some applications to the approximate numerical solution of ordinary differential equations, with error bounds.
