Subject: Constraints Between Two Surfaces

Dear members of NA-NET,

I would like to pose a question which may be simple to you.

I have two space surfaces:
F1(x,y,z) = 0
F2(x,y,z,t) = 0
F1 is a fixed spherical surface while F2 is the surface of something like
ellipsoids and it's rolling and/or sliding on F1. My problem is how to
describe the constraints, that is the two surfaces always shere one common
point and a same tangent plane. I tried by introducing a variable pc(t),
the contact point at time t. Unfortunately it did not work out as I had too
many vaviables in my problem. I am wondering if someone knows some simpler
ways to solve this problem.

Many Thanks in advance

Huali BAO

Subject: FTP at Liverpool

The FTP site at University of Liverpool is addressed as (
and its public domain directory
is intended to keep research reports and papers of staff
members of Department of Stats and Computational Maths.

Currently three papers (on Error equidistribution;
Quadrilateral mesh generation; Singular integral equations
respectively) are available. Hopefully more will be added on soon.

World wide web users may try
to access the content file.

Subject: WWW versions of LP and NLP FAQs

WWW versions of the Linear Programming FAQ and the Nonlinear
Programming FAQ are now available. Tools such as Mosaic will
allow you to read these HTML-marked files, and then you will
be able to click on certain points of interest to take you to
other places (such as FTP sites of mentioned software).

To view these documents, use the following URLs:

These will be updated (at least) monthly, as new information
comes in to me. I will extract an ASCII version of the FAQs
and post them to sci.op-research on the first working day of
each month, as I have done in the past.

As with any new enterprise, there may be a "shakedown" period
as I correct problems that arise, so please be patient. Even
more than usual, I solicit constructive feedback on the form
and content of these two FAQs.

two months you will undoubtedly have had difficulties. I apologize
for these problems, which can be expected with any move overseas.

Subject: Conference On Spectral And High Order Methods


International Conference On Spectral And High Order Methods

May 22--26, 1995
Houston, Texas


ICOSAHOM'95 is the 3rd of a series of conferences held in Como (Italy) in 1989
and Montpellier (France) in 1992. The development of high performance
computers has made spectral and high order methods one of the most important
techniques in modern scientific and engineering computing. The aim of the
conference is to bring together leading researchers, both established and young
scientists to survey and review the current state of research in this domain.
Funding for the conference has been requested from a series of federal
agencies. Anticipated use will include travel support for speakers who do not
have alternative support (graduate students, participants from developing and
former Soviet-block countries).


1. Spectral methods.
2. High order finite differences.
3. h-p version of finite elements.
4. Approximation of PDE's using wavelet techniques.

Subject: Workshop on Computational Aeroacoustics


October 24-26, 1994
Holiday Inn Hampton - Coliseum Hotel and Conference Center
Hampton, Virginia

Computational aeroacoustics (CAA), although at present
in its infancy, is fast emerging to occupy a
position equal in importance to theory and experiment.
A feature that distinguishes CAA from computational
aerodynamics is the need for a faithful representation of
relatively low-amplitude linear and nonlinear wave
propagation processes. The purpose of the Workshop
on the Benchmark Problems in Computational Aeroacoustics
is to evaluate the accuracy and efficiency of numerical
methods in a systematic fashion as applied to certain elementary
testbed problems which characterize the difficulties of CAA.
This Workshop is a sequel to the first Workshop on Computational
Aeroacoustics held in April 1992, which focused on assessing
the state-of-the-art and defining future directions of
research [Springer-Verlag 1993]. We envision a third
workshop which will focus on more realistic benchmark problems.

These present test cases are confined to unsteady
two-dimensional inviscid problems where "exact" solutions
exist to encourage broad participation.
The submissions are assessed by a scientific committee.

In addition to discussing the benchmark problems, the Workshop will
conduct a panel discussion on the Industrial Perspective on the
Critical Issues of Computational Aeroacoustics and an overview of
experimentally observed phenomena that can be used in code validation.
