### Abstract

A survey of the development of algorithms for enforcing nonnegativity constraints in scientific computation is given. Special emphasis is placed on such constraints in least squares computations in numerical linear algebra and in nonlinear optimization. Techniques involving nonnegative low-rank matrix and tensor factorizations are also emphasized. Details are provided for some important classical and modern applications in science and engineering. For completeness, this report also includes an effort toward a literature survey of the various algorithms and applications of nonnegativity constraints in numerical analysis. Key Words: nonnegativity constraints, nonnegative least squares, matrix and tensor factorizations, image processing, optimization.
