**Subject: New Book, The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods**

We are pleased to announce the Second Edition of our book

"The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods,"

Springer-Verlag, Texts in Applied Mathematics 15, 2002,

ISBN 0-387-95451-1.

This expanded edition contains two new chapters. The first

is on the additive Schwarz theory with applications to

multilevel and domain decomposition preconditioners. The

second one is an introduction to a posteriori error estimators

and adaptivity. There are also substantial additions to

several other chapters. New exercises have been added throughout,

and the list of references has been expanded and updated.

**Subject: Intensive FEMLAB Module at the University of Sheffield**

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL AND PROCESS ENGINEERING

UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD

is hosting a five day intensive module entitled

Chemical Engineering Modelling with FEMLAB

24-28 June 2002, Room LT20, Newcastle Street Building.

The module is aimed at graduate Chemical Engineers who use

modelling tools and as a general introduction to FEMLAB for

scientists and engineers. So a bachelor's degree in any cognate

discipline -- engineering, chemistry, physics, applied maths will be

sufficient. FEMLAB is built on top of MATLAB as an integrated

application environment for finite element analysis of pde systems.

Sparse Days at CERFACS 2002

Workshop on Preconditioning Large, Sparse Systems of Linear Equations

June 24-25, 2002

The workshop will start around lunchtime on June 24. A full

programme will be broadcast in a later NA Digest.

Direct methods for large, sparse linear systems are robust

across application domains, but their memory requirements

often make pure direct methods unsuitable for the largest

problems in practice. Iterative methods, on the other

hand, can often be scaled to large problem sizes, but they

typically require preconditioning to converge well. Since

the best preconditioners are often domain-specific, it is

more difficult to make iterative methods robust across many

application domains.

The development of robust preconditioning techniques is

therefore of the highest importance in advancing our

ability to solve large, sparse linear systems. This is an

exciting and fertile field, in which researchers attempt to

combine the discrete, combinatorial data structures and

algorithms used in direct methods with the continuous,

algebraic analysis used in iterative methods. Among the

directions that have been fruitfully investigated are

incomplete factorizations, sparse representations of

approximate inverses, and support-graph preconditioning.

We propose a workshop that will bring some of the key

researchers in these various preconditioning techniques

together with some of the graduate students whose future

work will extend this field. The workshop will consist

of talks and problem sessions on Monday, June 24 and

Tuesday, June 25 at CERFACS. Delegates to the workshop

are encouraged to visit CERFACS during the entire week

of June 24-28 in order to have as much opportunity as

possible for interaction.

There is no registration fee but prospective attendees should register

with Brigitte Yzel at CERFACS (Brigitte.Yzel@cerfacs.fr) with a

copy to Luc Giraud (giraud@cerfacs.fr). Please let us know if you want to

speak (sending title and abstract). We have a limited amount of

cheap accommodation on site and you should let us know soon if you want

us to try to book a room for you.

Confirmed attendees (some of whom will be speaking) include:

Michele Benzi, Erik Boman, Doron Chen, John Gilbert, Hussein Hoteit, John Lewis,

Jose Mas Mari, Esmond Ng, Suely Oliveira, Bernard Philippe, Yousef Saad,

Olaf Schenk, Masha Sosonkina, Sivan Toledo and, of course, nearly all members

of the Parallel Algorithms Team at CERFACS.
