A letter from Patrick Bangert, Nicky Graves Gregory:
In late 1999, a questionnaire was circulated among physicists asking several questions about the past, present and future of physics. We are doing research of a similar nature for mathematics. In our endeavour, we wish to discover what fascinates mathematicians about their subject, how they came into the field and what they think about it now. In this research, we are interviewing mathematicians and circulating a questionnaire. Among the mathematicians supporting our research with individual interviews are Louis H. Kauffman, John H. Conway and Michael V. Berry.
For ease of participation, the questionnaire is available in an online form.

    NUMERICA -A Library of Source Codes for teaching, research and applications by E. F. Toro.
    This software library is potentially of use to scientists involved in teaching, research or consultancy in any of the following areas:
  • Mathematical Modelling
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Numerical Analysis of PDEs
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Computational Mathematics
  • Computational Physics
  • Computational Hydraulics
  • NUMERICA is a library of source codes for solving hyperbolic partial differential  equations using a broad range of modern, high resolution shock capturing  conservative and non-conservative numerical methods. Most of the programs are  based on upwind schemes of the Godunov and Flux Vector Splitting type but also  included are centred flux and slope limiter TVD methods. Exact and several  approximate Riemann solvers form the basic routines of the many schemes of first  and higher order of accuracy included in the library.
