Subject: Interruption of NA Net Services

Our apologies for the interruption of NA Net services.

As you may have noticed, NA Net has been silent for three weeks.
While Gene and I were both travelling, an unannounced upgrade of
the operating system on the machines we use at Stanford was
undertaken. The "na.lastname" mail forwarding service has not
been working correctly and we probably lost some submissions to
the NA Net News. I'm not even sure that everything is back in
order now; we'll try to straighten it out.

(The Householder XI meeting in Sweden was excellent! We'll have
a more complete report later.)

Subject: Addresses for Anne and Nick Trefethen.


For the next fourteen months, we will be on sabbatical from MIT and
Thinking Machines. Throughout this period, we plan to read e-mail
regularly at our home computers: and
Our principal destinations are as follows:

September-November 1990:
School of Mathematics, Univ. of NSW, Kensington, NSW 2033, Australia

January-June 1991: (Nick's address)
Analyse Numerique, Univ. P. & M. Curie, 4 Place Jussieu, 75230 Paris, France

July-August 1991: (Nick's address)
Computing Laboratory, 8-11 Keble Road, Oxford OX1 3QD, England

In the fall of 1991 we will move to Ithaca, NY, where Nick will join
the Department of Computer Science, Cornell University.

Subject: Back Issues of Journals For Sale

I have run out of room at home to store scholarly journals. In order
to clear those piled up on the floor (by the October earthquake)
I have to clear out some of the
older ones that I don't use. Most start in the mid-1970's and end in the
late 1980's.

Price is $1 each, but complete volumes will only be sold complete:

ACM SIG act ada apl bdp graph micro map ops sam sen

ACM Transactions On PLAS CS OIS DS GS

IEEE: Spectrum, Design & Test, Expert, Software, etc.

SIAM Journal on Computing

Price is $5 each, but complete volumes will only be sold complete:

Springer Verlag: Numerische Mathematik, Computing, Acta Informatica

Wiley: Software Practice and Experience

and others in a similar vein.

Solicitations from tax-deductible charitable organizations will be considered
for what I can't sell in a reasonable time.

I'm sure it's painful for the many authors, referees, and editors on this
mailing list that their journals were rated more disposable than others,
but I am only reducing my accumulation by about half, which should allow
another decade's worth to pile up before I have to do this again.
