Working Conference on "PDE Software: Modules, Interfaces and Systems"
A Working Conference "PDE Software: Modules, Interfaces and Systems" was
Sweden, 22-26 August 1983, with
John R. Rice as
conference chairman. This conference focused on the importance of
developing PDE (Partial Differential Equations) software as a system in
a modular fashion with careful attention to the interfaces involved. The
consequences of this viewpoint were explored, including topics like
specialized languages, natural interfaces, classification of modules,
necessity of special techniques, generality, mixing of different methods
in one program, portability versus efficiency. There were sessions on
Problem Description, Finite Element Systems, Elliptic and Parabolic
Problems, Hyperbolic and Mixed Problems, Algebraic Computation, Parallel
Computation, Software Evaluation, and an open session.
edited by Björn Engquist and Tom Smedsaas, were published by
North-Holland in 1984. ISBN 0-444-87620-0.
The proceedings were dedicated to the memory of
N. N. Yanenko.
