Earlier mathematical and computational studies of cancer chemotherapy showed the need for the development of methods to handle convolution integrals computationally. The Memorandum gives techniques for the numerical inversion of Laplace transforms. The methods are also useful in treating wide classes of equations arising in biology, chemistry, operational research, and similar studies. 19 pp.
