Abstract Ulam's method is a rigorous numerical scheme for approximating invariant densities of dynamical systems. The phase space is partitioned into a grid of connected sets, and a set-to-set transition matrix is computed from the dynamics; an approximate invariant density is read off as the leading left eigenvector of this matrix. When a hole in phase space is introduced, one instead searches for conditional invariant densities and their associated escape rates. For Lasota--Yorke maps with holes we prove that a simple adaptation of the standard Ulam scheme provides convergent sequences of escape rates (from the leading eigenvalue), conditional invariant densities (from the corresponding left eigenvector), and quasi-conformal measures (from the corresponding right eigenvector). We also immediately obtain a convergent sequence for the invariant measure supported on the survivor set. Our approach allows us to consider relatively large holes. We illustrate the approach with several families of examples, including a class of Lorenz-like maps.
