about

This book contains contributions from the invited speakers to the fifth S.E.R.C Summer School in Numerical Analysis, which was held at Lancaster University from 19th to 31st July, 1992. The expositions were at a level which could be understood by post-graduate research students, yet would be advanced enough to stimulate established researchers. The book should therefore be useful to a wide class of readers. The topics which are covered include some of the most important areas of current research in numerical analysis. The contributors are: Jesse L. Barlow, Pennsylvania State University; Professor Jack Dongarra, Oak Ridge National Library; Professor Howard C. Elman, Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, Maryland; Professor Randolph E. Bank, University of California; Professor J.W. Jerome, NorthwesternUniversity, and Professor Maurizio Pandolfi, Politecnico di Torino, Italy.

Editorial Reviews

`It contains a great deal of information ... Jerome's study of the modelling of semi conductors brings to bear a range of mathematical and computational tools and presents the state of the art in masterly fashion. All the sections of this book are useful, and it is worth having just forJerome's section alone.'The Times Higher, 29 September 1995
