Numerical Analysis 1995
- This format is currently out of stock.
This volume contains invited papers presented at the 16th Dundee Biennial Conference on Numerical Analysis held at the University of Dundee, 27-30 June, 1995. The Dundee Conferences are important events in the numerical analysis calendar, and the thirteen papers published here represent accounts of recent research work by leading numerical analysts covering a wide range of fields of interest. The book is a valuable guide to the direction of current research in many areas of numerical analysis. It will be of particular interest to graduate students and research workers concerned with the theory and application of numerical methods for solving ordinary and partial differential equations, with emphasis on problems in fluid dynamics. It also contains contributions to research into methods of linear algebra, numerical methods for optimisation problems and surface fitting.
