Acta Numerica has established itself as the prime forum for the presentation of definitive reviews of numerical analysis topics. The invited papers by leaders in their respective fields allow researchers and graduate students alike quickly to grasp the then current trends and developments of 1994. Highlights of the year's issue are articles on domain decomposition, mesh adaption, pseudospectral methods and neural networks.

• Essential reference • Top contributors for the 1994 volume • Includes chapters on neural networks, mesh adaption, etc.

Review

Review of the hardback: 'Acta Numerica is a fine achievement and I think we can expect to see it for many years to come. It sets itself laudable and important goals and has, to a large extent, achieve them. I believe that the volumes are of enormous benefit to our subject … The editorial board should be applauded for having the vision and drive necessary to create and sustain such a high quality publication … No mathematics library is complete without this annual publication, and I urge everyone working in numerical mathematics and scientific computing to read it.' Andrew Stuart, SIAM Review
