About the Authors
  • The Society for the Foundations of Computational Mathematics supports fundamental research in a wide spectrum of computational mathematics and its application areas. As part of its endeavour to promote research in computational mathematics, the society regularly organises conferences and workshops which bring together leading researchers in the diverse fields impinging on all aspects of computation. This book presents thirteen papers written by plenary speakers from the 1999 conference, all of whom are the foremost figures in their respective fields. Topics covered include complexity theory, approximation theory, optimisation, computational geometry, stochastic systems and the computation of partial differential equations. The wide range of topics covered illustrates the diversity of contemporary computational mathematics and the intricate web of its interaction with pure mathematics and application areas. This book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in all areas of mathematics involving numerical and symbolic computations.

    • Covers a broad range of topics in computational mathematics and its application areas
    • Each chapter is written by a leading authority on the subject
    • Contains up-to-date research

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… an interesting and intriguing firework of contemporary research.' Adhemar Bultheel, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society

    'Each chapter provides a readable and comprehensive introduction to and overview of its topic, and in many cases also presents new research results. Collectively the chapters provide a very clear indication of the enormous breadth of computational mathematics, its close interaction with other developments within mathematics, and its impact in both mathematics and applications.' ZAMM (Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik)
