Subject: Any Ph.D. Graduates Lately?

About once a year I ask that if you produced a Ph.D. dissertation (or a
similar achievement) related to multigrid or multilevel methods, please send
the title, author, institution, and abstract to me for putting into the
digests.  I also encourage advisers to send in the information if the former
student cannot.

Besides being good publicity for recent graduates, certain grant agencies like
seeing this information publicized in digests like this one, so it helps the
field in general.

Thanks,
Craig

Subject: Piet Wesseling's Book on MGNet

Dear Craig,

As I told you some time ago, a corrected reprint of "An Introduction to 
Multigrid Methods" has now been published by R.T. Edwards, Inc., who inform me 
that the book is now instock and is available via Amazon.

Therefore I now ask you to take the electronic version offline.

Perhaps you could maintain for a while the following information:

This is a corrected reprint of the splendid book that Pieter published with 
John Wiley & Sons in 1992.  After it went out of print a downloadable version 
was available here. As of July 2004 it can no longer be downloaded. The 
corrected reprint is published by R.T. Edwards, Inc. The list price is $69.00 
USD. Bibliographic details and purchasing information can be found at
http://www.rtedwards.com/books/080/index.html and at 
http://www.amazon.com

Best regards,
Pieter

Subject: Conference in Germany on PDEs and Scientific Computing

Indo-German conference on PDE, Scientific Computing and Applications,
Trier, Sept. 8-10, 2004

Scope:
Scientific Computing in the context of partial differential equations,
optimization and specific applications is a very active field of research,
both in Germany and in India - and, of course, also in other parts
of the world. This conference focusses on a bilateral exchange of
knowledge thus posssibly initiating future joint research activities.
Particular application areas are aerodynamics and environmental
engineering, where a high level of expertise will be present
at the conference. As can be seen from the list of invited speakers,
contributions from other countries and also from other fields
of Scientific Computing are highly welcome as well in this open conference.

The deadline for abstract submission is June 30, 2004.
