Subject: IFISS Version 3.2 Software Release

The IFISS software toolbox may be used to generate prototype linear
equation systems arising from finite element discretizations of steady
and unsteady diffusion, convection-diffusion, Stokes flow and
Navier-Stokes flow problems.

It has built in geometric and algebraic multigrid methods,
state-of-the-art Krylov subspace solvers, and it includes a variety of
appropriate preconditioning strategies. Version 3.2 includes
functions for the efficient solution of unsteady buoyancy-driven flow

IFISS is freely available and can be run with Matlab or Octave.
For download, user guide, and other information see or

Subject: Workshop Honoring F.J. Lisbona, Spain, Sep 2012

The workshop "Numerical Methods for Ordinary and Partial Differential
Equations and Applications" (dedicated to the 65th birthday of
Professor Francisco J. Lisbona) will be held from 3rd to 5th of
September of 2012 at the University of Zaragoza (Spain).

It is organized by the research group Numerical Methods for Partial
Differential and Integral Equations of the Applied Mathematics
Department at the University of Zaragoza, and it will take place in
