2003 Copper Mountain Conference on Multigrid Methods

General Information

    The conference was held in Copper Mountain, Colorado (USA) from Sunday, March 30 to Friday, April 4, 2003. This was be the eleventh in an every other year conference series on multigrid and related topics at this location. The twelfth conference will hopefully be in late March and/or early April, 2005. Contact for more information about future conferences.

    The official proceedings will appear in Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications.  Contact Panayot Vassilevski for details.

    The schedule, attendees, and views of the town are available.
