From: reichel@mcs.kent.edu
Subject: Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis (ETNA)

Table of contents of first "issue" of Electronic Transactions on Numerical 
Analysis (ETNA)


ETNA, Vol 1, "Issue 1", September 1993.

C. Schneider, Analysis of the linearly implicit mid--point rule for 
differential--algebraic equations, pp. 1-10

G.L.G. Sleijpen and D.R. Fokkema, BiCGstab(l) for linear equations involving 
unsymmetric matrices with complex spectrum, pp. 11-32

G. Ammar, P. Benner and V. Mehrmann, A multishift algorithm for the numerical 
solution of algebraic Riccati equations, pp. 33-48

M. Eiermann and R.S. Varga, Zero and local extreme points of Faber polynomials
associated with hypocycloidal domains, pp. 49-71.


The next batch of accepted papers will be posted in December. 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".

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.
