Today's Topics:


Date: 24 May 87 21:14:12 EDT
Subject: PDE Symposium

DIFFERENTIAL * * EQUATIONS * * at Lehigh University , Bethlehem , PA * * June
23-25 , 1987 *
This symposium deals with modern developments in the solution of partial
differential equations using computers. One of the focal points is that
concerning those recent advances in vector and parallel computers and modern
numerical software which have made possible the solution of problems that only
a few years ago were condidered intractable. The scientific program contains
contributions to this important line of development in computation and
computational mathematics. It consists of Contributed Papers Sessions , of
Organized Sessions on specific topics and includes a Mini-Symposium on
Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Hard cover proceedings are in press, and should be available to the attendees
at the symposium.
REGISTRATION : June 23 , 8:00 to 9:15 am,(in Neville Hall where an information
desk will be maintained during most of the duration of the conference
tel :(215) 758-4264.)
OPENING SESSION : June 23 , 9:15 to 9:45 in Neville Auditorium l.

Lehigh University is located approximately midway between Philadelphia and New
York. Bethlehem is served by the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton (ABE) Airport,
which is a 10 minute drive from the Hotel Bethlehem, and the Lehigh campus.
ABE Airport is served by Eastern, US Air and United, as well as several
commuter lines. Van service is available to the Hotel Bethlehem by calling on
a special telephone from the Airport. Several major car rental companies also
have facilities at the ABE Airport.
