**Subject: New Q&A website for computational science**

A new Stackexchange site that is focused on computational science

has just launched. It may be a nice place to discuss questions like

those that are often posted to NA-digest:

http://scicomp.stackexchange.com/

For those who are unfamiliar, Stackexchange is a network of

collaborative question and answer sites; the most well-known is the

stackoverflow site for programming.

Solving Numerical PDEs: Problems, Applications, Exercises by Luca

Formaggia, Fausto Saleri and Alessandro VenezianiSpringer, UNITEXT

Series, 434 p. ISBN 978-88-470-2411-3

This book aims at introducing students to the numerical

approximationof Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). One of the

difficulties ofthis subject is to identify the right trade-off between

theoreticalconcepts and their use in practice. With that collection of

examplesand exercises we try to address this issue by illustrating

"standard"examples which focus on basic concepts of Numerical

Analysis, as wellas problems derived from practical applications which

the student isencouraged to formalize in terms of PDEs, analyze and

solve. Thelatter examples are derived from the experience of the

authors inresearch project developed in collaboration with scientists

ofdifferent fields (biology, medicine, etc.) and industry. We

wantedthis book to be useful both to readers more interested in

thetheoretical aspects, and also to those more concerned with

thenumerical implementation. To this aim, solutions to the exercises

havebeen subdivided in three parts. The first concerns the

mathematicalanalysis of the problem, the second its numerical

approximation andthe third part is devoted to implementation aspects

and the analysisof the results. The book consists of three parts. The

first deals withbasic material and results provided as useful

reference for the othersections. In particular, we recall the basics

of functional analysisand the finite element method. The second part

deals with steadyelliptic problems, solved with finite elements or

finite differences,while in the third part we address time-dependent

problems, includinglinear hyperbolic systems and Navier-Stokes

equations. Two appendicesdiscuss some practical implementation issues

and three-dimensionalapplications. Each section contains a brief

introduction to thesubject to make this book self contained.
