## Re: [GSoC] Introduction Mail

```Hi,

a1, a2, ..., a130 are coefficients. t1, t2, .., t130 are unknowns. We need
130 linearly independent equations to solve for these variables. We can
never get 130 linearly independent equations as some of the coefficients
would be 0 every time. Hence, we get an approximate solution by forming an
overdetermined system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overdetermined_system).
Let me know if you have any further doubts.

Anshu Avinash
