Acta Numerica 1999: Volume 8
Numerical analysis is the subject of applied mathematics concerned mainly with using computers in evaluating or approximating mathematical models. As such, it is crucial to all applications of mathematics in science and engineering, as well as being an important discipline on its own. Acta Numerica surveys annually the most important developments in numerical analysis and scientific computing. The subjects and authors of the substantive survey articles are chosen by a distinguished international editorial board so as to report the most important and timely developments in the subject in a manner accessible to the wider community of professionals with an interest in scientific computing.
• Reports the important developments in numerical analysis and scientific computing• Written in a style accessible to all scientific computing professionals• Topics and authors selected by an editorial board of the leading numerical analysts in the world
