I desperately need to get rid of some old journals. These include SIAM Jr.

on Applied Math, SIAM Jr. on Numerical Analysis, SIAM Review, Comm. of ACM,

ACM Journal, Computing Reviews, Math. of Comp., Notices and Bulletin of AMS,

etc., etc. Is there anyone out there who has need or knows of anyone who has

need or can use any of these? My alternative is to discard them.

**Subject: Textbook Suggestions**

A group of teachers at the Technical University of Denmark are

planning two new undergraduate courses. One will treat both theory

and computation for ordinary differential equations, and the other

will do the same for partial differential equations.

Can anyone suggest a textbook for either course? The language

should be English, and it would be desirable if the texts contained

technical applications.

**Subject: Fast Bessel Transform Software**

I am searching for a Fast Bessel+Fourier (forward & backward)

Transform software:

$ A_{m,n} = 2/(c^2 J_1(\alpha_j c)^2 \int_0^c dx \int_0^1 dz

\exp(-2i \pi m z) x J_0(\alpha_j x) f(x,z)$

for : $ -\inf < m < \inf$ and $1 \le n < \inf$

and f(x,z) is be any piecewise continous complex function on the

interval 0 < x < c. \alpha_j are the positive roots of the equation:

$J_0(\alpha c)=0$.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,

"Integrals of the form

Integrate[Exp[-(at+b)^2]Erf[ct+d]Erf[et+f],{t,-Infinity,Infinity}],

where a-f are finite, arise in a variety of contexts.

I have used both Maple and Mathematica to find some closed form expressions

for these integrals but drew a blank. The old reliable (pencil & paper) gives

Sqrt(pi)/a{Erf[(ad+bc)/Sqrt(a^2+c^2)]-2Erf[bc/Sqrt(a^2+c^2)]}

enhance understanding of the technical aspects of computer algebra, by

providing a forum for researchers, users, and others, to meet and

become more familiar with the work going on in the area.The meeting is

endorsed by ACM SIGSAM.

The invited talks include:

Richard Fateman, UC Berkeley:

``Symbolic Computation and Numeric Problem Solving''

Barry Trager, IBM -- T.J.Watson Research Lab:

``Good and Bad Primes for Computer Algebra''

Robert Corless, Western Ontario University:

In addition, there will poster sessions and less formal presentations.

Poster topics proposed to date include: applications to

bioengineering, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering;

sparse polynomial algorithms; wavelets; parallel computer algebra;

human computer interfaces for education; computational geometry, and

more.

DEADLINES To request travel support, Wednesday April 28. For a

poster session proposal, Wednesday May 4. For conference

registration: Wednesday, May 11.

the two sessions.

Posters should be prepared to be presented on two bulletin boards

approximately 4 feet by 4 feet each (thumbtacks to be provided!). If

computers or other audio visual equipment is required, please describe

your needs in your submission to the organizers.

TRAVEL SUPPORT The meeting organizers can provide limited travel

support to individuals who will present research work of interest at a

poster session. Priority will be given to graduate students located on

the U.S. East Coast who are concentrating in computer algebra. Those

wishing travel support should submit their title and abstract as soon

as possible in order to receive full consideration. Graduate students

seeking travel support should send a letter of support from their

advisor to the organizers. The letter can be sent electronically.

**Subject: Fifth SIAM Applied Linear Algebra Conference**

The Fifth SIAM Applied Linear Algebra conference, to be held in June

in Snowbird, Utah, is planned around 19 scheduled common interest

sessions. We are attempting to schedule these sessions to minimize

conflict, using a discrete optimization algorithm. The data we need

for the scheduling program is part of the SIAM Registration card.

So, if you haven't registered yet, you haven't participated in

scheduling the common interest sessions either.

We will construct the schedule based on preregistrations that we

receive by May 1st. (We'd rather wait to perform the scheduling after

everyone's preferences are in, but some attendees have asked us to

finish earlier to allow them to tune travel plans to the final

schedule.) So, please register early! You can still preregister at

the reduced price until June 1st, but scheduling data received after

May 1st will be ignored.

We encourage those of you who have not yet registered to do so as soon

as possible. If you really intend to attend the meeting, but cannot

submit your registration to SIAM by the May 1st deadline because of

bureaucratic barriers, please communicate directly with John Lewis

(jglewis@espresso.rt.cs.boeing.com).

If you are undecided about attending because you missed the deadline

for submitting a paper to the proceedings, please remember that each

common interest session will begin with a half-hour poster session, at

which you can present your work, and if you wish, distribute preprints.
