About the Authors
  • Acta Numerica anually surveys the most important developments in numerical mathematics and scientific computing. The subjects and authors of the substantive articles are chosen by a distinguished international editorial board, so as to report the most important and timely developments in a manner accessible to the wider community of professionals with an interest in scientific computing. Acta Numerica volumes are a valuable tool not only for researchers and professionals wishing to develop their understanding of numerical techniques and algorithms and follow new developments. They are also used as advanced teaching aids at colleges and universities (many of the original articles are used as the prime resource for graduate courses).

    • Reports developments in numerical analysis and scientific computing
    • Written in a style accessible to graduate students and researchers
    • Authors have made notable contributions to the development of their topic

    Reviews & endorsements

    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, achieved 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
