## Proceedings of the Seventh SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing

Proceedings -- Parallel Computing.
## Parallel Computing in Optimization

During the last three decades, breakthroughs in computer technology have made a tremendous impact on optimization. In particular, parallel computing has made it possible to solve larger and computationally more difficult prob lems. This volume contains mainly lecture notes from a Nordic Summer School held at the Linkoping Institute of Technology, Sweden in August 1995. In order to make the book more complete, a few authors were invited to contribute chapters that were not part of the course on this first occasion. The purpose of this Nordic course in advanced studies was three-fold. One goal was to introduce the students to the new achievements in a new and very active field, bring them close to world leading researchers, and strengthen their competence in an area with internationally explosive rate of growth. A second goal was to strengthen the bonds between students from different Nordic countries, and to encourage collaboration and joint research ventures over the borders. In this respect, the course built further on the achievements of the "Nordic Network in Mathematical Programming" , which has been running during the last three years with the support ofthe Nordic Council for Advanced Studies (NorFA). The final goal was to produce literature on the particular subject, which would be available to both the participating students and to the students of the "next generation" .
## Proceedings of the Fifth Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments

The ALENEX workshop provides a forum for the presentation of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures. This volume collects extended versions of the 12 papers that were selected for presentation.
## Proceedings of the Fifth SIAM International Conference on Data Mining

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.
## Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Scientific Computing

Scientists and engineers are increasingly making use of simulation methods to solve problems which are insoluble by analytical techniques. Monte Carlo methods which make use of probabilistic simulations are frequently used in areas such as numerical integration, complex scheduling, queueing networks, and large-dimensional simulations. This collection of papers arises from a conference held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in 1994. The conference brought together researchers across a range of disciplines whose interests include the theory and application of these methods. This volume provides a timely survey of this field and the new directions in which the field is moving.
## Fifth International Conference on Mathematical and Numerical Aspects of Wave Propagation

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.
## Proceedings of the Third SIAM International Conference on Data Mining

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.
## Proceedings of the Fourth SIAM International Conference on Data Mining

The Fourth 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. This is reflected in the talks by the four keynote speakers who discuss data usability issues in systems for data mining in science and engineering, issues raised by new technologies that generate biological data, ways to find complex structured patterns in linked data, and advances in Bayesian inference techniques. This proceedings includes 61 research papers.
## Computational Information Retrieval

This volume contains selected papers that focus on the use of linear algebra, computational statistics, and computer science in the development of algorithms and software systems for text retrieval. Experts in information modeling and retrieval share their perspectives on the design of scalable but precise text retrieval systems, revealing many of the challenges and obstacles that mathematical and statistical models must overcome to be viable for automated text processing. This very useful proceedings is an excellent companion for courses in information retrieval, applied linear algebra, and applied statistics.
## Third International Conference on Mathematical and Numerical Aspects of Wave Propagation

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.
## Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing, ICA3PP 2008, held in Agia Napa, Cyprus, in June 2008. The 31 revised full papers presented together with 1 keynote talk and 1 tutorial were carefully reviewed and selected from 88 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on scheduling and load balancing, interconnection networks, parallel algorithms, distributed systems, parallelization tools, grid computing, and software systems.
## Next Generation Environmental Models and Computational Methods

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.
