- Zhaojun Bai, Kentucky
- Hermann Schichl, Austria
- Meinholf Sellmann, Germany

## Interests

The group's members are interested in scientific
computing, broadly defined so as to include areas of classical numerical
analysis, simulation, parallel computation and
computational geometry. Classical numerical analysis areas include:
linear algebra; nonlinear equations and fitting; differential
equations; optimization; and approximation. Application interests
cover: pricing models; layout problems; simulation of systems such as
VLSI circuits, semiconductor and optical structures, E&M
propagation, and networks. Computing environment activities
encompass: software distribution
(*netlib*); modeling
languages (*AMPL*);
visualization; and distributed computing on workstation clusters
connected via high-speed networks.
