This reduces rounding issues and the need to use excessive numbers of decimal places.
There are some exceptions to this rule: for example, the Japanese often quote their currency as the base to other currencies.

It is available on the Hunt website under its name In the Details.
The 2nd edition of my book on this subject was published by CRC Press (Chapman & Hall) in April 2002 (ISBN 1-58488-171-2). David Smith from the Medical College of Georgia, USA, has notified me of certain missing references. As I can no longer access my ozemail web site, I shall make the latest versions of my subsets software available here.
For subset selection using the L1-norm, that is minimizing the sum of absolute residuals, here is toms615.f90 which is a translation of TOMS algorithm 615 to make it ELF90 compatible.
It is very likely that we have missed several highly important works.
