Subject: New Book on Pseudospectral Methods

Bengt Fornberg: "A Practical Guide to Pseudospectral Methods",

Volume 1 in "Cambridge Monographs on Applied and Computational
Mathematics", Cambridge University Press 1996, 231 pages,
ISBN 0-521-49582-2.

This book explains how, when, and why pseudospectral methods
work, focusing more on illustrations and heuristic explanations
than on rigorous (functional-theoretical) arguments. A key
theme is to explore - and exploit - the close connection that
exists between pseudospectral- and finite difference methods.

Subject: New Book on Numerical Analysis of Differential Equations

I'm pleased to announce the publication of a new book of interest to NA-net:

A First Course in the Numerical Analysis of Differential Equations
Arieh Iserles
University of Cambridge

Numerical analysis presents different faces to the world. For
mathematicians it is a bona fide mathematical theory with an applicable
flavour. For scientists and engineers it is a practical, applied subject,
part of the standard repertoire of modelling techniques. For computer
scientists it is a theory on the interplay of computer architecture and
algorithms for real-number calculations.
It is the tension between these standpoints that is the driving force of
this book, which presents a rigorous account of the fundamentals of
numerical analysis of both ordinary and partial differential equations. The
point of departure is mathematical but the exposition strives to maintain a
balance between theoretical, algorithmic and applied aspects of the subject.
In detail, topics covered include numerical solution of ordinary
differential equations by multistep and Runge--Kutta methods; finite
difference and finite elements techniques for the Poisson equation; a
variety of algorithms to solve large, sparse algebraic systems; methods for
parabolic and hyperbolic differential equations and techniques of their
analysis. The book is accompanied by an appendix that presents brief
back-up in a number of mathematical topics.
Dr Iserles concentrates on fundamentals: deriving methods from first
principles, analysing them with a variety of mathematical techniques and
occasionally discussing questions of implementation and applications. By
doing so, he is able to lead the reader to theoretical understanding of the
subject without neglecting its practical aspects. The outcome is a textbook
that is mathematically honest and rigorous and provides its target audience
with a wide range of skills in both ordinary and partial differential

1. Euler's method and beyond; 2. Multistep methods; 3. Runge-Kutta methods;
4. Stiff equations; 5. Error control; 6. Nonlinear algebraic systems;
7. Finite difference schemes; 8. The finite element method; 9. Gaussian
elimination for sparse linear equations; 10. Iterative methods for sparse
linear equations; 11. Multigrid techniques; 12. Fast Poisson solvers;
13. The diffusion equation; 14. Hyperbolic equations; APPENDIX. A Bluffer's
guide to useful mathematics

Subject: Inverse Problems in Wave Propagation

Conference on Inverse Problems in Wave Propagation and Diffraction
Aix les Bains (France)
September 23-27, 1996

SIAM and GAMM have been conducting a conference series on various
application fields of inverse problems; the committee for this series
is chaired by H.W.Engl (Linz) and W.Rundell (College Station, USA) and
includes also A.Louis (Saarbr|cken) and D.Colton (Delaware). The
first conferences were on Inverse Problems in Diffusion Processes
(St.Wolfgang, June 1994) and on Inverse Problems in Geophysics
(California, December 1995). Proceedings have been published (and
will be published, respectively) by SIAM. After a conference on
Inverse Problems in Medical Imaging and Nondestructive Testing in
Oberwolfach (February 1996; not formally part of this series, but
chaired by H.W.Engl, A.Louis, and W.Rundell, hence coordinated with
the series), the next conference will be coorganized with INRIA and
chaired by G. Chavent and P.C.Sabatier. According to their call for
papers, it will focus on modeling, mathematical analysis, and the
numerical solution of inverse problems in wave propagation and
diffraction. The targeted audience is multidisciplinary. The
organizers hope to incite successful exchanges between the specialists
in applied fields and those whose academic background and interest are
more centered on mathematics.

The conference takes place in Aix les Bains in the French Alps between
September 23 and 27, 1996. Abstracts should be submitted by March 1

Subject: Conference on the Boundary Element Method

18th World Conference on the Boundary Element Method
BEM 18

the 3rd International Fluid Dynamics Workshop

24 - 26 September 1996
Braga, Portugal

Organised by
Wessex Institute of Technology, UK
Universidade do Minho, Portugal
Sponsored by
International Society of Boundary Elements (ISBE)

Both research and applications of the Boundary Element Method (BEM) have
continued to grow in the last few years. Numerous advances have been
reported in these conferences since they started in 1978. The continuous
success of applying BEM to difficult engineering and scientific problems
has resulted in it continuing to be an area of very active research. Much
of the new analytical research has contributed in developing better tools
for the solution of non-linear and time-dependent problems. Practising
engineers, on the other hand, envisage the implementation of the technique as
an analysis and design tool. Considerable advances have also been made in
the solution of complex fluid dynamics problems and the use of high
performance computing.

BEM can now solve complex engineering problems and has been accepted as an
alternative to other analysis techniques. The conference will deal with the
topics listed over the page as well as papers of a more theoretical
character, state of the art reviews and advance mathematical and
computational aspects.

This conference is internationally recognised as the forum for boundary
element research and continues to attract a large number of well established

The conference has held a special appeal to young researchers who are
actively involved in advances of Boundary Elements. The meeting is a unique
forum in which they can present and discuss their ideas with their colleagues.
The meeting has always been characterized by its friendly atmosphere,
collaboration and mutual respect which are trademarks of authentic

Subject: Position at CERFACS


We are looking for someone at post-doc level with experience, interest,
and background (with publications) in both mathematics and computer science.
The position is open in the framework of the ESPRIT contract PINEAPL
in connection with European research centres and industrial partners.
The leader of the project is NAG. For this project we want someone
with experience both in numerical software techniques and parallel computing.
The work can commence immediately. Normally the position is for one
year with possible extensions to a second year.
The heart of the activity concerns the numerical reliability of software.
There exist methods for analysing models and algorithms that give an
indication of the confidence to be placed in the accuracy of simulation results.
The task to be completed at CERFACS consists mainly in developing
a tool which employs these methods, called PRECISE, that will be used in the
project for confidence testing of algorithms and applications. A prototype
tool already exists so the consortium can begin testing internally early in
the project. The prototype version is written for Matlab and one of the aims
of the task is to improve its capabilities. Some of the work will be in
translating PRECISE to Fortran to allow larger (and more realistic)
problems to be handled and in the production of commercial quality
documentation for the tool.

This position is in the framework of the Parallel Algorithms Project
and within the Qualitative Computing Group.
