About this book The articles that comprise this distinguished annual volume for the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics series have been written in honor of Gilbert Strang, a world renowned mathematician and exceptional person. Written by leading experts in complementarity, duality, global optimization, and quantum computations, this collection reveals the beauty of these mathematical disciplines and investigates recent developments in global optimization, nonconvex and nonsmooth analysis, nonlinear programming, theoretical and engineering mechanics, large scale computation, quantum algorithms and computation, and information theory. Much of the material, including the various methodologies, is written for nonexperts and is intended to stimulate graduate students and young faculty to venture into this rich domain of research; it will also benefit researchers and practitioners in several areas of applied mathematics, mechanics, and engineering.

Chapter 5: Chapter 6: Chapter 7: Chapter 8: The book makes very interesting reading and provides a unique perspective on the field of applied mathematics. It blends the algorithms with the governing equations, as the author strongly believes the algorithms support the theory. North-Holiand Book Reviews innovative concepts that provided the motivation revolutionize the teaching of advanced mathematics fur this book. Noye and R. May, eds. This proceedings volume contains invited and contributed papers from a conference on computational methods held in Melbourne, Australia, August.

There are papers from six keynote lectures U. I believe that the teaching of applied mathematics needs a fresh approach. That opinion seems to be widely shared. Many of the textbooks in use today were written a generation ago, and they cannot reflect the ideas or the algorithms that have brought such significant change. Certainly there are things that will never be different-but even for the solution of Laplace's equation a great deal is new. Topics like stability and optimization and matrix methods have earned a more central place-perhaps at the expense of series solutions of differential equations.

Applied mathematics is alive and very vigorous. That ought to be reflected in our teaching.

In my own class I became convinced that the textbook is crucial. It must provide a framework into which the applications will fit. A good course has a clear purpose, and you can sense that it is there.

It is a pleasure to teach a subject when it is moving forward, and this one is-but the book has to share in that spirit and help to establish it.

The central topics are differential equations and matrix equations-the continuous and discrete. They reinforce each other because they go in parallel.

On one side is calculus; on the other is algebra. Differential equations and their transforms are classical, but still beautiful and essential. Nothing is out of date about Fourier!

Gilbert Strang

At the same time this course must develop the discrete analogies, in which potential differences rather than derivatives drive the flow. Those analogies are not difficult; they are basic, and I have found that they are welcome. To see the cooperation between calculus and linear algebra is to see one of the best parts of modern applied mathematics. I am also convinced that these equations are better understood-they are more concrete and useful-when we present at the same time the algorithms that solve them.

SIAM Review

Those algorithms give support to the theory. And in general, numerical methods belong with the problems they solve.

I do not think that the Fast Fourier Transform and difference equations and numerical linear algebra belong only in some uncertain future course. It is this course that should recognize what the computer can do, without being dominated by it.

Perhaps I may give special mention to the role of linear algebra.

If any subject has become indispensable, that is it. The days of explaining matrix notation in an appendix are gone; this book assumes a working knowledge of matrices. Old Password.
