Applications of the Chinese Remainder Theorem

In the last chapter we showed that there is a unique polynomial f(x) with real coefficients of degree < n whose graph y = f(x) passes through any n specified points with distinct abscissas. Finding a polynomial passing through a given set of points is called interpolation. In this chapter we give two applications of interpolation, one classical, one modern.
