A special issue of ETNA will be dedicated to Professor Niethammer on the occassion of his 60th birthday. Send mail to mailer@etna.mcs.kent.edu if you would like to contribute. How to access papers in ETNA: 1. ACCESSING ETNA USING GOPHER. ETNA is running a gopher server. Its hostname is etna.mcs.kent.edu. If you are running gopher on your system the command gopher etna.mcs.kent.edu will connect you directly to ETNA. Provided your system is suitably configured, keyword searches and the on-line-graphical display of papers will then be available. The ETNA directory, "viewers", contains the source files for programs that will provide most UNIX workstations with direct-display and keyword-search capabilities. Contact your system admistrator about installing these programs. 2. OBTAINING AN ETNA PAPER WITH FTP. Papers can be obtained at any time from ETNA via anonymous ftp from etna.mcs.kent.edu. A paper's location will always correspond to its reference. For instance, a paper which is referenced as "...,Elec. Trans. Numer. Anal., Vol 1, 1993, pp. 11-35", will be stored in the directory "vol.1.1993", and its file name will be "pp11-35.ps". To obtain that paper using ftp a) ftp etna.mcs.kent.edu b) login as anonymous c) enter your e-mail address as your password d) cd to vol.1.1993 e) get pp11-35.ps To obtain only the list of titles and abstract for the papers published is volume 1 of ETNA, proceed repeat a)-d) above but change e) to e) get index 3. OBTAINING AN ETNA PAPER VIA E-MAIL. ETNA is using a mailer program which will scan incoming e-mail messages for requests and then e-mail the requested file to the sender. The program was written by Eric Grosse for netlib and modified slightly by Arden Ruttan for ETNA. A PostScript file of any paper published in ETNA may be obtained by sending an e-mail message to "mailer@etna.mcs.kent.edu" containing a phrase of the form "send pagenumber from vol.number.year". For instance, to use ETNA's mailer to obtain a paper which is referenced as "...,Elec. Trans. Numer. Anal., Vol 1, 1993, pp. 11-35", send e-mail to "mailer@etna.mcs.kent.edu" containing the phrase "send pp11-35.ps from vol.1.1993". To obtain only the list of titles and abstract for the papers published in volume 1 of ETNA, send an e-mail message to "mailer@etna.mcs.kent.edu" containing the phrase "send index from vol.1.1993". The requested paper will be e-mailed to you in several pieces. The subject of each piece of e-mail indicates the number of that piece. To reconstruct the original file, a) Edit each piece deleting all lines that are not strictly between the two occurrence of the phrase "CUT HERE............" including the lines containing those phrases. b) Using the file containing piece 1, successively append the remaining pieces in order to the END of the that file. 4. BECOMING A SUBSCRIBER TO ETNA. To be included in ETNA's quarterly mailing list of the titles and abstracts of papers published in ETNA, send an e-mail message to etna@mcs.kent.edu with the subject "ETNA Registration". 5. SUBMITTING A PAPER TO ETNA. To obtain information as to how to submit a paper to ETNA, ftp the file "info-for-authors" which is located in the directory "etna-info". Alternately you may send an e-mail message to "mailer@etna.mcs.kent.edu" containing the phrase "send info-for-authors from etna-info". ------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 8 Sep 93 19:58:06 EDT From: reichel@mcs.kent.edu Subject: New Book Title: Numerical Linear Algebra Editors: L.

Saad, P. Van Dooren, R.S. Varga On March 13-14, 1992, a meeting of the Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio Section of SIAM, with the title Numerical Linear Algebra and Scientific Computing was held at Kent State University, Kent, Ohio. In the short period of two days, the roughly 60 participants heard new research results in Numerical Linear Algebra from acknowledged leaders in the field. The talks displayed the present activity in this area of Numerical Analysis and illustrated the wide diversity of the ongoing research. Some of the topics covered in papers of the proceedings: * Iterative methods for large linear systems of equations. Papers present new variants of the QMR, GMRES and SOR methods. * Preconditioning of linear systems of equations. Papers discuss block circulant preconditioners with application to image restoration and the use of the block-ADI iterative method for preconditioning. * Generalized M-matrices and ultrametric matrices. * Algorithms for eigenvalue problems. A new more stable variant of Rutishauser's qd algorithm is presnted, as well as a divide-and-conquer algorithm for the generalized symmetric tridiagonal eigenvalue problem. * An algorithm of interest for the computation of the singular value decomposition of products of matrices. * Ill-posed problems in image resoration. * Implementation of iterative methods on sequential and parallel computers. ------------------------------ End of MGNet Digest **************************
