This volume presents the refereed proceedings of the Guangzhou International Symposium on Computational Mathematics, held at the Zhongshan University, People's Republic of China. Nearly 90 international mathematicians examine numerical optimization methods, wavelet analysis, computational approximation, numerical solutions of differential and integral equations, numerical linear algebra, inverse and ill-posed problems, geometric modelling, and signal and image processing and their applications.


". . .The articles give statisticians a modern view of recent advances in computational mathematics."

---Journal of the American Statistical Association
