Review of the hardback: 'Acta Numerica is a fine achievement and I think we can expect to see it for many years to come. It sets itself laudable and important goals and has, to a large extent, achieve them. I believe that the volumes are of enormous benefit to our subject ... The editorial board should be applauded for having the vision and drive necessary to create and sustain such a high quality publication ... No mathematics library is complete without this annual publication, and I urge everyone working in numerical mathematics and scientific computing to read it.' Andrew Stuart, SIAM Review
Acta Numerica is an annual volume presenting survey papers in numerical analysis accessible to graduate students and researchers. Highlights of the 1994 issue are articles on domain decomposition, mesh adaption, pseudospectral methods and neural networks.
