For this set of lectures we assumed that the reader has a reasonable back ground in physics and some knowledge of general relativity, the modern theory of gravity in macrophysics, and cosmology. Computer methods are present ed by leading experts in the three main domains: in numerics, in computer algebra, and in visualization. The idea was that each of these subdisciplines is introduced by an extended set of main lectures and that each is conceived as being of comparable 'importance. Therefpre we believe that the book represents a good introduction into scientific I computing for any student who wants to specialize in relativity, gravitation, and/or astrophysics. We took great care to select lecturers who teach in a comprehensible way and who are, at the same time, at the research front of their respective field. In numerics we had the privilege of having a lecturer from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA, Champaign, IL, USA) and some from other leading institutions of the world; visualization was taught by a visualization expert from Boeing; and in com puter algebra we took recourse to practitioners of different computer algebra systems as applied to classical general relativity up to quantum gravity and differential geometry.

Many large-scale projects for detecting gravitational radiation are currently being developed, all with the aim of opening a new window onto the observable Universe. As a result, numerical relativity has recently become a major field of research, and Elements of Numerical Relativity and Relativistic Hydrodynamics is a valuable primer for both graduate students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter the field. A revised and significantly enlarged edition of LNP 673 Elements of Numerical Relativity, this book starts with the most basic insights and aspects of numerical relativity before it develops coherent guidelines for the reliable and convenient selection of each of the following key aspects: evolution formalism; gauge, initial, and boundary conditions; and various numerical algorithms. And in addition to many revisions, it includes new, convenient damping terms for numerical implementations, a presentation of the recently-developed harmonic formalism, and an extensive, new chapter on matter space-times, containing a thorough introduction to relativistic hydrodynamics. While proper reference is given to advanced applications requiring large computational resources, most tests and applications in this book can be performed on a standard PC.

Projects in Scientific Computation

This interdisciplinary book provides a compendium of projects, plus numerous example programs for readers to study and explore. Designed for advanced undergraduates or graduates of science, mathematics and engineering who will deal with scientific computation in their future studies and research, it also contains new and useful reference materials for researchers. The problem sets range from the tutorial to exploratory and, at times, to "the impossible". The projects were collected from research results and computational dilemmas during the authors tenure as Chief Scientist at NeXT Computer, and from his lectures at Reed College. The content assumes familiarity with such college topics as calculus, differential equations, and at least elementary programming. Each project focuses on computation, theory, graphics, or a combination of these, and is designed with an estimated level of difficulty. The support code for each takes the form of either C or Mathematica, and is included in the appendix and on the bundled diskette. The algorithms are clearly laid out within the projects, such that the book may be used with other symbolic numerical and algebraic manipulation products

Hardbound. The aim of this conference was to investigate the motivation for and development of Problem Solving Environments (PSEs) for Scientific Computing. The meeting was interdisciplinary, including experts in Physics, Chemistry, Oceanography, Biology and fields of Engineering, as well as authorities in Software Engineering, Numerical Software Construction, Computing Science, Computational Mathematics and Statistics.Whilst some Working Conferences are essentially review meetings in the course of the development of a particular field, it is evident that focussed consideration of problem solving environments for many people started with this meeting.
