Acta Numerica has established itself as the prime forum for the presentation of definitive reviews of numerical analysis topics. The invited review papers, by leaders in their respective fields, allow researchers and graduate students alike quickly to grasp trends and developments. Highlights of the 1995 issue include articles on sequential quadratic programming, mesh adaption, free boundary problems and particle methods in continuum computations.
1. Sequential quadratic programming Paul T. Boggs; 2. A taste of Pade approximation C. Brezinski and J. van Iseghem; 3. Introduction to adaptive methods for differential equations Kenneth Eriksson, Don Estep, Peter Hansbo and Claes Johnson; 4. Exact and approximate controllability for distributed parameter systems R. Glowinski and J. L. Lions; 5. Numerical solutions to free boundary problems Thomas Y. Hou; 6. Particle methods for the Boltzmann equation Helmut Neunzert and Jens Struckmeier; 7. The new QD algorithms Beresford N. Parlett.
