The third SIAM International Conference on Data Mining provided an open forum for the presentation, discussion and development of innovative algorithms, software and theories for data mining applications and data intensive computation. This volume includes 21 research papers.
The Fifth SIAM International Conference on Data Mining continues the tradition of providing an open forum for the presentation and discussion of innovative algorithms as well as novel applications of data mining. Advances in information technology and data collection methods have led to the availability of large data sets in commercial enterprises and in a wide variety of scientific and engineering disciplines. The field of data mining draws upon extensive work in areas such as statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, databases, and high performance computing to discover interesting and previously unknown information in data. This conference results in data mining, including applications, algorithms, software, and systems.
The proceedings in this volume provide reviews and discussions on the current and future developments in scientific computation, including numerical solutions of differential equations, numerical linear algebra, parallel computation and engineering applications. It contains papers by leading scientists in computational mathematics from US, Israel, Italy, China and Hong Kong.

Focuses on the notion that by breaking the domain of the original problem into subdomains, such an approach can, if properly implemented, lead to a considerable speedup. The methods are particularly well suited for parallel computers.
This conference was held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, July 10-14, 2000. This volume contains papers presented at the conference covering a broad range of topics in theoretical and applied wave propagation in the general areas of acoustics, electromagnetism, and elasticity. Both direct and inverse problems are well represented. This volume, along with the three previous ones, presents a state-of-the-art primer for research in wave propagation. The conference is conducted by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique with the cooperation of SIAM.
This volume contains the papers presented at the title conference. Speakers from 13 different countries were represented at the meeting. A broad range of topics in theoretical and applied wave propagation is covered.
Large-scale changes are taking place in the way modelling is performed within the US EPA, and a new generation of environmental models is currently under construction. The US EPA is engaging in several modelling efforts in response to Congressional mandates such as the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. These mandates require the scientific modelling of the impact of pollutants on human health and the environment. The complexity of scale in environmental models has increased by several orders of magnitude, with a simultaneous demand for increased stability, accuracy and efficiency in the computed model solution. This book showcases numerical algorithms appropriate to the subject areas listed below and explores how new algorithmic methods would benefit the US EPA's environmental models and other environmental studies.
