Software automatic tuning is a technology paradigm enabling software adaptation to a variety of computational conditions. Originating from the stream of research works on highperformance computing, it is considered to be the most promising approach to the required performance advancements on the next generation supercomputing platforms. Also,...

My coauthor Robert Caddell died in 1990. I have greatly missed interacting with him.

The biggest changes from the second edition are an enlargement and reorganization
of the last third of the book, which deals with sheet metal forming. Changes have been
made to the chapters on bending, plastic anisotropy, and cup...

This book gives a systematic treatment of singularly perturbed systems that naturally arise in control and optimization, queueing networks, manufacturing systems, and financial engineering. It presents results on asymptotic expansions of solutions of Komogorov forward and backward equations, properties of functional occupation measures,...

Computer modeling is now an integral part of research in evolutionary biology. The advent of increased processing power in the personal computer, coupled with the availability of languages such as R, SPLUS, Mathematica, Maple, Mathcad, and MATLAB, has ensured that the development and analysis of computer models of evolution is now within the...

A long time ago, when younger and rasher mathematicians, we both momentarily harboured the ambition that one day, older and wiser, we might write a multivolume treatise titled “On the Mathematical Foundations of Numerical Analysis”. And then it dawned that such a creation already exists: it is called ‘a mathematics library’....

At a meeting in Moscow in June 2005, Gil Strang suggested that there be a collection of Gene Golub's work to highlight his many important contributions to numerical analysis. The three of us were honored to undertake this pleasant task, with publication timed for February "29", 2007, the 75th anniversary of Gene's birth.

A computer algebra system (CAS) not only has the number \crunching" and plotting capability of traditional computing languages such as Fortran and C, but also allows one to perform the symbolic manipulations and derivations required in most mathematically based science and engineering courses. To introduce students in these disciplines to...

The present book provides an effective direct method of the numerical solution of singular integral equations for both one and two (or more) dimensions and includes multiple integrals, especiaIly as applied to separated and vortex flows in aerodynamics. The authors of the book are a professional mathematician (Ivan Lifanov) and a numerical...

Fourier analysis has been the inspiration for a technological wave of advances in fields such as imaging processing, financial modeling, algorithms and sequence design. This unified, self-contained book examines the mathematical tools used for decomposing and analyzing functions, specifically, the application of the [discrete] Fourier transform...

Exploring Monte Carlo Methods is a basic text that describes the numerical methods that have come to be known as "Monte Carlo." The book treats the subject generically through the first eight chapters and, thus, should be of use to anyone who wants to learn to use Monte Carlo. The next two chapters focus on applications in nuclear...

This textbook introduces sparse and redundant representations with a focus on applications in signal and image processing. The theoretical and numerical foundations are tackled before the applications are discussed. Mathematical modeling for signal sources is discussed along with how to use the proper model for tasks such as denoising,...

This book represents thirteen papers that are based on the presentations made in the five
session symposium on "Damage and Interfacial Debonding in Composites" on the occasion
of the 32nd Society of Engineering Science Meeting; held in New Orleans, Louisiana,
October 29 - November 1, 1995. The five sessions were mainly in the...
