This article attempts to summarize the existing numerical methods based on Sinc approximation. Starting with a comparison of polynomial and Sinc approximation, basic formulas for the latter in the one-dimensional case are given. The author also covers the following:

(i) Explicit spaces of analytic functions for one dimensional Sinc approximation,

(ii) applications of Sinc indefinite integration and collocation to the solution of ordinary differential equation initial and boundary value problems,

(iii) results obtained for solution of partial differential equations, via Sinc approximation of the derivatives,

(iv) some results obtained on the solutions of integral equations,

(v) use of Sinc convolution, a technique for evaluating one and multi-dimensional convolution-type integrals.

A list of some existing computer algorithms based on Sinc methods is also given.
