Computational Mathematics
Monday, 13 July 1998


Organizers: Markus Hegland and Michael Stewart,
Australian National University

Computational Mathematics provides the framework for many HPC applications in science, engineering and increasingly also in business. There is a growing community of computational mathematicians at Australian universiMarkus Heglandties investigating HPC algorithms for cryptography, optimisation, simulation and data analysis. The workshop will prove an overview of some recent research at Australian universities in HPC-related computational mathematics. The talks provide insight into new algorithmic developments, their interactions with computer architecture and the underlying mathematics.
