About the Authors
  • Numerical analysis is the subject of applied mathematics concerned mainly with using computers in evaluating or approximating mathematical models. As such, it is crucial to all applications of mathematics in science and engineering, as well as being an important discipline on its own. Acta Numerica surveys annually the most important developments in numerical analysis and scientific computing. The subjects and authors of the substantive survey articles are chosen by a distinguished international editorial board so as to report the most important developments in the subject in a manner accessible to the wider community of professionals with an interest in scientific computing.

    • Reports the very important developments in the subject
    • Survey topics and their authors are chosen by the editors
    • All authors are briefed to write in a manner accessible to all scientific computing professionals

    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, 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

    Review of the hardback: 'Acta Numerica is a cross between a journal and a book. As a regular publication containing contributions from a variety of authors, it is similar to a journal in style. However, it is case-bound and the survey articles are written by invited authors, all of whom are expected to be leaders in the field of numerical mathematics and scientific computing.' The Mathematical Gazette

    Review of the hardback: 'This and the other volumes of the series provide an excellent way to learn about current research in a wide variety of areas in numerical analysis and scientific computation.' Mathematics of Computation
