An Abridged History of Cell Discretization
This brief account will call attention to a line of research which stretches over 40 years, and which appears now to be joining the mainstream of work on the discretization of linear partial differential equations. The first in a series of papers  describing the Method of Cells, now called the Cell Discretization Algorithm (CD or CDA), was published in 1959.
