Subject: Finite Element People Followup

I would like to thank the tremendous response for the
``Finite Element People'' message I posted last week.
The list now includes almost 100 names and the page has
received several hundreds of hits in its first week.
Thank you also for the e-mails of encouragement to set
this up!
I would like to take this opportunity to explain further
that the Finite Element People home-page located at:

was created to collect the personnal web pages of people
that use/develop/improve/analyze finite element methods in
several applications.
In order to have your name included, you need first to
have a personnal web page, second to hold a PhD degree or
equivalent, and third have some evidence in your page that
you use/develop/improve/analyze finite element methods in
several applications.
Many distinguished colleagues are not listed because I was
unable to find their home-pages (most likely they do not
exist). If you feel you should be included try to have
a friend, a colleague, your system administrator set up
a personal web page for you. Then send me your URL address
(ie, your web page address) for inclusion. We all want to
see your smile!

Subject: New Book on Numerical Solution of Integral Equations

This is to announce the publication of my book "The Numerical
Solution of Integral Equations of the Second Kind". The first six
chapters cover integral equations of the second kind in which the
integral operator is compact. The final three chapters discuss the
numerical solution of boundary integral equation reformulations of
Laplace's equation, in both two and three dimensions.

The book has been published by Cambridge University Press, and their
web page for the book (including ordering information) is located at
The book is published in the series "Cambridge Monographs on Applied
and Computational Mathematics", and its ISBN number is 583918.

My own web page for the book is located at
This web page contains links to the complete table of contents and to
the bibliography for the book (both taken from the manuscript). The
book is approximately 550 pages in length.

Local organizer: Shen Zuhe


The conferences INTERVAL'XX are significant meetings devoted to various
aspects of reliable numerical computations based on the interval approach.
(Sometimes the terms validated numerics, localizational computations, or
enclosure methods are used). Talks are devoted to development of
corresponding mathematical structures, design of computer tools, and
applications in a wide range of areas.

The first conference was held in September 1992 near Moscow, with impressive
success. The INTERVAL'94 conference emphasized interdisciplinary research with
computer algebra. INTERVAL'96 was focused on computer assisted proofs ranging
from symbolic computation through rigorous error estimation, and including different
paradigms such as functional and logic programming as well as solution of
constraint systems.

INTERVAL'98 will emphasize the application of interval mathematics
and its combination with the interdisciplinary topics from the
two preceding meetings in global optimization. Especially welcome
are contributions which use interval arithmetic tools for solving
problems of practical relevance.


The following topics will be considered: interval mathematics, hardware and
software for interval and computer-algebraic methods, SC-languages, logic
constraint programming, interval modelling, interval constraints, computer
aided proofs in analysis, interval algorithms in control theory,
organization of symbolic-numeric interfaces, programming environments for
scientific computing, and applications in various fields of science and
engineering as well as commercial issues.


The conference will be held April 20-23 in Nanjing, China.

The official language is English.

Subject: Report on Czech-U.S. Workshop on Iterative Methods

Report on the
Czech-U.S. Workshop on Iterative Methods and Parallel Computing (IMPC'97),
June 16-21, 1997, Milovy, Czech Republic.

Submited by Daniel Szyld and Zdenek Strakos

Over 120 scientists from 20 countries met at the hotel Devet Skal in
Milovy (literally ``Nine Rocks") near the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands
(Central part of the Czech Republic). About half the participants were
from the Czech Republic and the United States. The rest came from almost
every (Eastern and Western) European country as well as Turkey, and Israel.
All enjoyed the moderate weather, the wonderful atmosphere of camaraderie,
and the lake view (and a few even dared a swim in it).

The meeting was supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation and
the Czech Ministry of Education. Graduate student and young Ph.D. paper
competitions were held in both countries. Over a dozen winners attended
the workshop and presented their work. These, and other young participants
could be seen engaging in lively conversations until very late hours.

The structure of the program, i.e., plenary sessions in the mornings,
parallel sessions in the late afternoons, with early afternoons and
evenings free, gave the possibility of one-to-one and small groups
discussions. Everyone seem to have liked this, which together with the
high-quality of the talks, the location, the good humor of the
participants, and the smoothness of the local arrangements, made the
meeting a great success. This fact convinced the organizers to try
to hold a similar event in three years.

The speakers of the plenary sessions with the titles of their talks were:

Daniel B Szyld (Temple U.): Parallel Asynchronous Weighted Additive
Schwarz Methods
Beresford Parlett (U. Cal. Berkeley): Variants on Two-Sided Lanczos

A special issue of Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications will
contain some of the papers presented at the Workshop (with the usual
refereeing process). Roland Freund and Ivo Marek are the editors of the
special issue.

On Wednesday afternoon, an excursion was organized to Litomysl, a
thousand-year-old town, with many baroque buildings and preserved
market squares.
On Thursday evening, during an emotional ceremony and speaches
given by Ivo Marek and Karel Segeth, three awards were
presented: The Bolzano Medal, the highest honor from the Academy of Sciences,
to Anne Greenbaum, and two Commemorative medals from the School of
Mathematics and Physics of Charles University (turning 650 years old this
year) to Olof B. Widlund and Daniel B. Szyld.
