In recent years, the concept of m-term approximation has been promoted by R. DeVore et al., to formalize and investigate a number of nonlinear approximation problems. The talk aims at explaining some basic results on m-term approximation in connection with typical application areas (adaptivity for the solution of partial differential and integral equations, coding theory, etc.).
