                                   Abstract

We introduce some inexact versions of the minimal residual smoothing (IMRS)
technique to accelerate the standard multigrid convergence.  These are
modified versions of the minimal residual smoothing (MRS) technique introduced
and analyzed in earlier papers.  The IMRS acceleration schemes reduce the cost
of the standard MRS acceleration by about 40% for two dimensional problems and
frequently achieve even faster convergence.  Numerical experiments are
employed to demonstrate the efficiency of the IMRS acceleration schemes.  Some
of the numerical results show that IMRS can reduce the numbers of iterations
by 88% with respect to the standard multigrid method.

From: Alexandre Ern 
Subject: Eglib

We would like to inform you that our new multicomponent transport software is
now available.  This general-purpose fortran library is designed to evaluate
accurate approximations for transport coefficients in gas mixtures at a low
computational cost.

On the world wide web, you can locate the home page for the library at

    http://blanche.polytechnique.fr/www.eglib/

The source code, a corresponding makefile, a detailed user's manual, and the
user agreement can be recovered from

    ftp://barbes.polytechnique.fr/pub/Eglib/eglib.tar.gz

or directly using anonymous ftp

    ftp barbes.polytechnique.fr
    cd pub/Eglib
    get eglib.tar.gz

The file eglib.tar.gz is a gzip'ed tar file.  Upon issuing the commands

    gunzip eglib.tar.gz
    tar -xf eglib.tar

you will obtain a new directory called eglib.  Extensive details about the
library and the eglib directory can be found in the README file and the user's
manual located in this directory.

We recommend that you read the user agreement before downloading the library.
In particular, you are kindly requested to send us e-mail in the case you
decide to download the library.  This will allow you to be in the mailing list
for future updates concerning the library.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Subject: a BibTeX Entry

@article{PMDeZeeuw_1996a,
  author =      "Paul M. de Zeeuw",
  title =       "Development of semi-coarsening techniques",
  journal =     "Appl. Numer. Math.",
  volume =      "19",
  year =        "1996",
  pages =       "433--465"
  }

Departing from Mulder's semi-coarsening technique for first-order PDEs, the
notion of a grid of grids is introduced and a multi-level finite-volume
technique for second order elliptic PDEs is developed.  Various grid-transfer
operators are investigated, in combination with damped Jacobi-relaxation.
Convergence rates as they are predicted by Fourier local mode analysis are
compared with practical measurements.  The wide variety of grids at our
disposal leads to the notion of coherent representations of a function on
different grids.  A sawtooth multi-level algorithm is proposed for the case of
multiple semi-coarsening.
