Subject: 35 Copper Mountain Papers on MGNet

So far, 35 papers from the recent Copper Mountain multigrid conference have
been put onto MGNet in the directory tree mgnet/copper93.  The file,
README.mgnet, in that directory has more specific information about each of
the papers, including if it is in LaTeX, troff, PostScript, .dvi, a separate
directory, or whatever.  This is a subset (35/40) of the proceedings that NASA
will publish at the end of this summer.

I would like to thank each of the authors for putting their paper(s) on MGNet.

The papers are as follows:

approach to the shallow water equations.

Subject: Call for Papers: Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis
Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis (ETNA) is an electronic journal
for the publication of significant new and important developments in numerical
analysis and scientific computing. Papers of the highest quality that deal with
the analysis of algorithms for the solution of continuous models and numerical 
linear algebra are appropriate for ETNA, as are papers of similar quality that 
discuss implementation and performance of such algorithms. New algorithms for 
current or new computer architectures are appropriate provided that they are 
numerically sound. However, the focus of the publication should be on the 
algorithm rather than on the architecture. The journal is published by the Kent
State University Library in conjunction with the Institute of Computational 
Mathematics at Kent State University. Mathematical Reviews will receive all
papers accepted for publication in the journal and review them as appropriate.
ETNA is registered with the Library of Congress and has ISSN 1068-9613.

On a quarterly basis, accepted manuscripts will be posted in a directory which 
is publicly accessible through Internet. The titles and abstract of these 
manuscripts will be e-mailed to registered departments and individuals and 
posted on public bulletin boards such as NA-digest. An individual who wishes 
to obtain a copy of a current or back manuscript can get a copy through 
anonymous FTP or by using a netlib-type mailer. We also plan to install 
Gopher. All manuscripts will be available in Post Script format. The first 
issue of ETNA will appear September 1, 1993. Funds made available by the 
Kent State University Library and the Kent State University make free 
subscription possible for at least three years. After this time period we 
may have to charge an annual fee from institutional subscribers. Since the 
operating costs for the journal are low, we envision that this fee will not 
be above $100 for institutional subscribers. Everybody at the subscribing 
institution will have access to ETNA by FTP, a netlib-type mailer or Gopher.
In addition, articles in ETNA can be obtained through interlibrary loan from
Kent State University Library. 

To register to receive ETNA's quarterly titles and abstract lists, please send
an e-mail message to The subject of the message should be: 
ETNA registration. Titles and abstracts of papers published in ETNA will be 
e-mailed quarterly to the return addresses of all such requests. Inquiries for
further information should also be e-mailed to

Submission, Acceptance and Refereeing:
Authors will normally submit papers for publication via e-mail, and they will 
be required to submit their manuscript in LaTeX or TeX using macros we provide.
Requests for macros can be sent by e-mail to All papers will
be refereed. As soon as a paper has been accepted for publication in ETNA, it
will be entered into the ETNA data base. There are no annual page limitations, 
and, therefore, we are in a position to publish accepted manuscripts faster 
than many other journal. Manuscripts can be submitted NOW by sending them to 
the address
