This book presents the refereed proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Applied Parallel Computing in Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Science, PARA'95, held in Lyngby, Denmark, in August 1995.
The 60 revised full papers included have been contributed by physicists, chemists, and engineers, as well as by computer scientists and mathematicians, and document the successful cooperation of different scientific communities in the booming area of computational science and high performance computing. Many widely-used numerical algorithms and their applications on parallel computers are treated in detail.
