Despite the ample number of articles on parallel-vector computational algorithms published over the last 20 years, there is a lack of texts in the field customized for senior undergraduate and graduate engineering research. Parallel-Vector Equation Solvers for Finite Element Engineering Applications aims to fill this gap, detailing both the theoretical development and important implementations of equation-solution algorithms. The mathematical background necessary to understand their inception balances well with descriptions of their practical uses. Illustrated with a number of state-of-the-art FORTRAN codes developed as examples for the book, Dr. Nguyen's text is a perfect choice for instructors and researchers alike.

Finite Element Methods:

Finite element methods (FEM), and its associated computer software have been widely accepted as one of the most effective general tools for solving large-scale, practical engineering and science applications. For implicit finite element codes, it is a well-known fact that efficient equation and eigen-solvers play critical roles in solving large-scale, practical engineering/science problems. Sparse matrix technologies have been evolved and become mature enough that all popular, commercialized FEM codes have already inserted sparse solvers into their software. However, a few FEM books have detailed discussions about Lanczos eigen-solvers, or explain domain decomposition (DD) finite element formulation (including detailed hand-calculator numerical examples) for parallel computing purposes. The materials from this book have been evolved over the past several years through the author's research work, and graduate courses.

The finite element method (FEM) is an analysis tool for problem-solving used throughout applied mathematics, engineering, and scientific computing. Finite Elements for Analysis and Design provides a thoroughlyrevised and up-to-date account of this important tool and its numerous applications, with added emphasis on basic theory. Numerous worked examples are included to illustrate the material.

Die Anwendung der Finite-Element-Methode auf nichtlineare technische Probleme hat in den letzten Jahren - auch wegen der stark angestiegenen Rechnerleistung - erheblich zugenommen. Bei nichtlinearen numerischen Simulationen sind verschiedene Aspekte zu berücksichtigen, die das Wissen und Verstehen der theoretischen Grundlagen, der zugehörigen Elementformulierungen sowie der Algorithmen zur Lösung der nichtlinearen Gleichungen voraussetzen. Hierzu soll dieses Buch beitragen, wobei die Bandbreite nichtlinearer Finite-Element-Analysen im Bereich der Festkörpermechanik abgedeckt wird. Das Buch wendet sich an Studierende des Ingenieurwesens im Hauptstudium, an Doktoranden aber auch an praktisch tätige Ingenieure, die Hintergrundwissen im Bereich der Finite-Element-Methode erlangen möchten.

A large international conference on High Performance Computing and its - plications was held in Shanghai, China, August 8–10, 2004. It served as a forum to present current work by researchers and software developers from around the world as well as to highlight activities in the high performance computing area. It aimed to bring together research scientists, application - oneers,andsoftwaredeveloperstodiscussproblemsandsolutionsandtoid- tify new issues in this area. The conference focused on the design and analysis of high performance computing algorithms, tools, and platforms and their s- enti?c, engineering, medical, and industrial applications. It drew about 150 participants from Canada, China, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, Mexico, S- gapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. More than 170 papers were received on a variety of subjects in modern high performance computing and its applications, such as numerical and software algorithm design and analysis, grid computing advance, adaptive and par- lel algorithm development, distributing debugging tools, computational grid and network environment design, computer simulation and visualization, and computational language study and their applications to science, engineering, and medicine. This book contains ninety papers that are representative in these subjects. It serves as an excellent research reference for graduate s- dents, scientists, and engineers who work with high performance computing for problems arising in science, engineering, and medicine. This conference would not have been possible without the support of a number of organizations and agencies and the assistance of many people.
