**Subject: History of Krylov-type Methods**

While preparing the lecture notes for a course about iterative

methods I met the following problem: While Krylov-type methods are in

use for almost 50 years now, the notion "Krylov subspace" appears to

be introduced a lot later. So my first question: Who coined this

notion and where? I found a hint on a paper (A.N. Krylov, Bull. Acad.

des Sc. de l'URSS, 1931). But this paper does not contain these

spaces. Moreover, there is a method cited (Leverrier, Ann. Obs.

Imperial de Paris, 1859) which reminds a little bit on the spaces in

question. Therefore the second question: Who introduced these spaces

first?

Any hints are welcome.

Thank you.

**Subject: Announcing a Computing Research Repository**

Researchers regularly make their papers available by putting them on

personal web pages, departmental pages, and on various ad hoc sites

known only to cognoscenti. Until now, there has not been a single

repository to which researchers from the whole field of computing can

submit reports.

This is about to change. Through a partnership of ACM, the Los

Alamos e-Print archive, and NCSTRL (Networked Computer Science

Technical Reference Library), an online Computing Research Repository

(CoRR) is being established. The Repository has been integrated into

the collection of over 20,000 computer science research reports and

other material available through NCSTRL (http://www.ncstrl.org) and

will be linked with the ACM Digital Library. Most importantly, the

Repository will be available to all members of the community at no

charge. Among the subject classes identified for the repository are

Computational Engineering, Finance and Science

Numerical Analysis

Mathematical Software

Symbolic Computation

We encourage you to start using the Repository right away. For more

details see http://www.acm.org/repository. Please spread the word

among your colleagues and students. CoRR will only gain in value as

more researchers use it.

METIS

A Software Package for Partitioning Unstructured Graphs, Partitioning

Meshes, and Computing Fill-Reducing Orderings of Sparse Matrices

http://www.cs.umn.edu/~metis

http://www.cs.umn.edu/~karypis/metis

Version 4.0

We would like to announce the release of version 4.0 of the METIS package

for partitioning unstructured graphs, partitioning finite element meshes,

and for computing fill-reducing orderings of sparse matrices.

METIS 4.0 contains a number of changes over METIS 3.0. The major changes

are the following:

* METIS now includes partitioning routines that can be used to partition

a graph in the presence of multiple balancing constraints.

* METIS now includes partitioning routines that can be used to directly

minimize the overall communication volume resulted by the partitioning.

* METIS's k-way partitioning routines can now directly minimize the

maximum as well as the total number of adjacent subdomains.

* METIS's k-way partitioning routines can now reduce the number of

non-contiguous subdomains.

Overview of METIS

METIS is a set of programs that implement various graph partitioning algorithms

that are based on the multilevel paradigm. The advantages of METIS compared to

other similar packages are the following:

- Provides high quality partitions!

- It is extremely fast!

- Provides low fill orderings!

Obtaining METIS

METIS is freely distributed. You can download METIS's source code from

the WEB at:

or

Contact Information

METIS has been written by George Karypis at the Computer Science Department

of the University of Minnesota. If you have any questions or problems

**Subject: Report on the ANODE Meeting in New Zealand**

ANODE 98: Auckland, New Zealand / June 29 - July 10, 1998

ANODE 98 -- Auckland Numerical Ordinary Differential Equations

(organized by John Butcher, Robert Chan, Nicolette Goodwin,

Bev Grove and Allison Heard of the Department of Mathematics,

the University of Auckland, New Zealand) was held from June 29

to July 10, 1998, at the pleasant setting of Old Government House

on the city campus of the university. The format chosen by the

organizers (four principal lecture series, a number of minisymposia,

contributed talks -- including talks by many graduate students --

and above all, no parallel sessions) was the ideal basis for

a conducive and inspiring meeting and may well serve as a model

for other conferences with a distinct focus.

Each of the four principal lecturers presented six one-hour

lectures. Marc Spijker (Rijksuniversiteit Leiden, The

Netherlands) spoke on "Error growth analysis for discretizations

of initial value problems" (focusing on stability estimates and

various versions of the Kreiss resolvent condition). The lectures of

Chus Sanz-Serna (University of Valladolid, Spain) dealt with

"Order conditions for Runge-Kutta methods" (giving a new approach

and emphasizing their use in composition methods). Adrian Hill

(University of Bath, England) talked on "Nonlinear stability

theory" (extensive review of classical nonlinear stability for

ODEs and PDEs, followed by recent work on dissipativity and

dynamical systems).

The lectures on "Geometric integration of ODEs" (dealing with

symplectic integration, preservation of symmetry and volume, and

integral preservation and Lyapunov integrators), were given

by Robert McLachlan (Massey University, New Zealand) and

Reinout Quispel (Latrobe University, Australia).

The three minisymposia (organized respectively by Philippe Chartier

(IRISA, Rennes, France), Hermann Brunner (Memorial University of

Newfoundland, Canada), and Ray Zahar (Universite de Montreal,

Canada) had as their topics "Pseudo-spectral methods", "Numerical

delay differential equations" and "Taylor series methods".

Some 16 contributed talks (about half of these given by

graduate students from the Department of Mathematics at

Auckland) complemented the 12 contributions to the minisymposia.

The afternoon of the last day of ANODE 98 was given to a discussion

of open problems. Among the topics covered were questions on

variable stepsize versus stability, and error estimation in

Taylor methods (Robert McLachlan); the notion and use of the

condition number for an initial-value problem (Robert Corless,

University of Western Ontario, Canada); unexplored areas in

geometric integration, e.g. nonautonomous ODEs, variable

time steps, and DAEs, DDEs, integral equations and PDEs

(Reinout Quispel); and observations on the visualization

of flows in ODEs (Chris Blackbourn, University of Auckland).

A number of well-organized social events complemented the

mathematical activities. They included a welcome function

on June 28 at O'Rorke Hall (a university residence where

many of the participants stayed); an excursion on the

afternoon and evening of July 1 to Devonport on the

North Shore, around the city, to the top of Mt Eden,

and finally to Old Government House for a performance by

the Te Ao Hurihanga Cultural Group and a traditional New

Zealand Fish 'n' Chips meal; and on the following day,

the conference dinner at a restaurant in Skytower, Auckland's

new landmark.

The conference was opened by Professor Ian Buckle,

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), University of

Auckland, and it was attended by about 50 participants from

Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Japan, The Netherlands,

New Zealand, Spain, the UK, and the USA. The obvious success

of ANODE 98 should be a strong incentive for many numerical

analysts to attend ANODE 99 which will be held from 16 to

20 August 1999, following SciCADE 99 in Australia.
