Subject: New Book, The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods

We are pleased to announce the Second Edition of our book
"The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods,"
Springer-Verlag, Texts in Applied Mathematics 15, 2002,
ISBN 0-387-95451-1.

This expanded edition contains two new chapters. The first
is on the additive Schwarz theory with applications to
multilevel and domain decomposition preconditioners. The
second one is an introduction to a posteriori error estimators
and adaptivity. There are also substantial additions to
several other chapters. New exercises have been added throughout,
and the list of references has been expanded and updated.

The table of contents and additional information can be found at

Subject: Intensive FEMLAB Module at the University of Sheffield

is hosting a five day intensive module entitled
Chemical Engineering Modelling with FEMLAB
24-28 June 2002, Room LT20, Newcastle Street Building.

The module is aimed at graduate Chemical Engineers who use
modelling tools and as a general introduction to FEMLAB for
scientists and engineers. So a bachelor's degree in any cognate
discipline -- engineering, chemistry, physics, applied maths will be
sufficient. FEMLAB is built on top of MATLAB as an integrated
application environment for finite element analysis of pde systems.

Subject: Sparse Days at CERFACS

Sparse Days at CERFACS 2002

Workshop on Preconditioning Large, Sparse Systems of Linear Equations

June 24-25, 2002

The workshop will start around lunchtime on June 24. A full
programme will be broadcast in a later NA Digest.

Direct methods for large, sparse linear systems are robust
across application domains, but their memory requirements
often make pure direct methods unsuitable for the largest
problems in practice. Iterative methods, on the other
hand, can often be scaled to large problem sizes, but they
typically require preconditioning to converge well. Since
the best preconditioners are often domain-specific, it is
more difficult to make iterative methods robust across many
application domains.

The development of robust preconditioning techniques is
therefore of the highest importance in advancing our
ability to solve large, sparse linear systems. This is an
exciting and fertile field, in which researchers attempt to
combine the discrete, combinatorial data structures and
algorithms used in direct methods with the continuous,
algebraic analysis used in iterative methods. Among the
directions that have been fruitfully investigated are
incomplete factorizations, sparse representations of
approximate inverses, and support-graph preconditioning.

We propose a workshop that will bring some of the key
researchers in these various preconditioning techniques
together with some of the graduate students whose future
work will extend this field. The workshop will consist
of talks and problem sessions on Monday, June 24 and
Tuesday, June 25 at CERFACS. Delegates to the workshop
are encouraged to visit CERFACS during the entire week
of June 24-28 in order to have as much opportunity as
possible for interaction.

There is no registration fee but prospective attendees should register
with Brigitte Yzel at CERFACS ( with a
copy to Luc Giraud ( Please let us know if you want to
speak (sending title and abstract). We have a limited amount of
cheap accommodation on site and you should let us know soon if you want
us to try to book a room for you.

Confirmed attendees (some of whom will be speaking) include:
Michele Benzi, Erik Boman, Doron Chen, John Gilbert, Hussein Hoteit, John Lewis,
Jose Mas Mari, Esmond Ng, Suely Oliveira, Bernard Philippe, Yousef Saad,
Olaf Schenk, Masha Sosonkina, Sivan Toledo and, of course, nearly all members
