Subject: Dissertations

Surely there were more than two dissertations in the past year+ that would be
of interest to the multigrid community...  Come on, gang, please let people
know about your work or that of your students.

Ray Tuminaro (Sandia National Labs) pointed me to

  Ales Janka,
  PhD in Applied Mathematics, supervised by Dr. Herve Guillard, 
  defended on March 1, 2002 
  Multigrid Methods for Compressible Navier-Stokes and Euler Equations or 

There is also a nice collection of papers and presentations by Janka, Vanek,
and Guillard on Janka's web page.

Martin Schultz (Yale) pointed me to

  Christopher Cornelius Doss, http:// ???
  Adaptive Partitioning and Scheduling for Adaptive Computers
  PhD in Computer Engineering, North Carolina State University,
  supervised by Dr. Clay S. Closter,
  May, 2001.
    http:// ???

If you want to see how to implement full multigrid on a FPGA, this is a good
place to start looking.
