The Proceedings of the Fourth International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Edinburgh, includes talks from the 30 plenary speakers who between them covered the gamut of applied mathematics in topics such as superconductivity (S.J. Chapman, Oxford); elastic media (A. Friedman, Minnesota); mathematical modelling of the Internet (F. Kelly, Cambridge); Monte Carlo methods for financial applications (S. Tezuka, IBM Tokyo); liquid turbulence, partial differential equations, discrete optimisation, and computational aspects of all these topics. Speakers J.A. Sethia (Berkeley), J.K. Lenstra (CWI, Amsterdam), R.V. Kohn (Courant Institute, New York), S. Muller (Leipzig, Germany), C. Johnson (Goteborg, Sweden). Also included are summaries of the mini symposia, and details of the prizes. This important summary of topical and applicable mathematics from the world's leaders in the subject is a 'must-have' reference volume for graduate students and researchers interested in applied and computational mathematics.

Contains written versions of the 23 plenary lectures delivered at the July 1999 congress. The authors discuss new mathematical problems, methods for analyzing and computing their solutions, and types of applications. Some of the topics are mathematical modeling of the Internet, quasi-Monte Carlo methods for financial applications, quantum computation, theoretical aspects of Nedelec's edge elements applied to electromagnetic problems, and domain decomposition for Navier-Stokes equations. Other topics include some nonlinear PDE's in the theory of flame propagation, macroscopic models of superconductivity, regularization methods for solving inverse problems, and propagation of cracks in elastic media."--SciTech Book News
