Highlights of recent research, including: steps toward ``textbook multigrid efficiency'' in fluid dynamics; calculations of n eigenfunctions of Schroedinger equation in O(n log n) computer operations; Dirac solvers for advanced models; fast adaptive integral transforms; multigrid/renormalization in mechanical statistics; climbing the scales in molecular mechanics; early vision: multiscale edge detection and picture segmentation; multilevel X-ray tomography.
