Just published and ready to ship from SIAM:

Applied Numerical Linear Algebra

James W. Demmel

Designed for use by first-year graduate students from a variety

of engineering and scientific disciplines, this comprehensive

textbook covers the solution of linear systems, least squares

problems, eigenvalue problems, and the singular value

decomposition. The author, who helped design the widely-used

LAPACK and ScaLAPACK linear algebra libraries, draws on this

experience to present state-of-the-art techniques for these

problems, including recommendations of which

algorithms to use in a variety of practical situations.If you are

looking for a textbook that

- teaches state-of-the-art techniques for solving linear algebra

problems,

- covers the most important methods for dense and sparse

problems,

- presents both the mathematical background and good software

techniques,

- is self-contained, assuming only a good undergraduate

background in linear algebra,then this is the book for you.

Algorithms are derived in a mathematically illuminating way,

including condition numbers and error bounds. Direct and

iterative algorithms, suitable for dense and sparse matrices, are

discussed. Algorithm design for modern computer architectures,

where moving data is often more expensive than arithmetic

operations, is discussed in detail, using LAPACK as an

illustration. There are many numerical examples

throughout the text and in the problems at the ends of chapters,

most of which are written in Matlab and are freely available on

the Web.

Material either not available elsewhere, or presented quite

differently in other textbooks, includes

- a discussion of the impact of modern cache-based computer

memories on algorithm design;

- frequent recommendations and pointers in the text to the best

software currently available, including a detailed performance

comparison of state-of-the-art software for eigenvalue and least

squares problems, and a description of sparse direct solvers for

serial and parallel machines;

- a discussion of iterative methods ranging from Jacobi's method

to multigrid and domain decomposition, with performance

comparisons on a model problem;

- a great deal of Matlab-based software, available on the Web,

which either implements algorithms presented in the book,

produces the figures in the book, or is used in homework

problems;

- numerical examples drawn from fields ranging from mechanical

vibrations to computational geometry;

- high-accuracy algorithms for solving linear systems and

eigenvalue problems, along with tighter "relative" error bounds;

- dynamical systems interpretations of some eigenvalue

algorithms.

Demmel discusses several current research topics, making students

aware of both the lively research taking place and connections to

other parts of numerical analysis, mathematics, and computer

science. Some of this material is developed in questions at the

end of each chapter, which are marked Easy, Medium, or Hard

according to their difficulty. Some questions are

straightforward, supplying proofs of lemmas used in the text.

Others are more difficult theoretical or computing problems.

Questions involving significant amounts of

programming are marked Programming. The computing questions

mainly involve Matlab programming, and others involve retrieving,

using, and perhaps modifying LAPACK code from NETLIB.

About the Author

James Demmel is a Professor in the Computer Science Division and

Mathematics Department at the University of California, Berkeley.

**Subject: New Book, Industrial Statistical Case Studies**

Recently published from the ASA and SIAM:

Statistical Case Studies for Industrial Process Improvement

Edited by Veronica Czitrom and Patrick D. Spagon

ASA-SIAM Series on Statistics and Applied Probability

American industry is becoming more aware of the importance of applying

statistical methods to improve its competitive edge in the world

market. Examples of real industrial applications can serve as a major

motivator for industries that want to increase their use of

statistical methods.

This book contains a broad selection of case studies written by

professionals in the semiconductor industry that illustrate the use of

statistical methods to improve manufacturing processes. These case

studies offer engineers, scientists, technicians, and managers

numerous examples of best-in-class practices by their peers. Because

of the universal nature of statistical applications, the methods

described here can be applied to a wide range of industries, including

the chemical, biotechnology, automotive, steel, plastics, textile, and

food industries. Many industries already benefit from the use of

statistical methods, although the semiconductor industry is considered

both a leader in and a model for the wide application and effective

use of statistics.

The book contains case studies of the following statistical methods:

gauge studies, passive data collection (observational studies), design

of experiments, statistical process control, and equipment

reliability. Czitrom has written an introduction to each statistical

method which, along with a glossary, gives basic definitions of

frequently occurring statistical terms and suggestions for further

reading. The case studies, which can be used in industry as well as in

academia, are an extremely useful classroom supplement and will remain

a rich source of used and useful approaches to real industrial

problems for years to come. A floppy disk containing all of the data

sets for each case study is included.

About the Authors

Veronica Czitrom is a distinguished member of the technical staff at

Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies. She recently received the

National Outstanding Technical Achievement Award from the Hispanic

Engineer National Awards Conference, which is co-hosted by Rice

University and Hispanic Engineer Magazine. Patrick Spagon works in

statistical methods at Motorola University Southwest, where he

develops courses in statistical methods for the engineering community.

Prior to joining Motorola, Dr. Spagon was a Senior Member of the

Technical Staff in the Statistical Methods Group at SEMATECH where he

did training and consulting, primarily in experimental design and

analysis.

A floppy disk is included with the book.

Correction

We had made a mistake in the announcement of the Second Feng Kang Prize of

Scientific Computing.

Indeed, the Prize is of 15,000 yuan RMB instead of 150,000 as appeared

in the announcement.

We are sorry for that mistake.
