  • Survey articles introduce to new methods connecting numerics and symbolic computation
  • New results in computational mathematics points out challenging future developments in scientific computing
  • Present state-of-the-art in this topic

The book presents the state of the art, new results, and it also includes articles pointing to future developments. Most of the articles center around the theme of partial differential equations. Major aspects are fast solvers in elastoplasticity, symbolic analysis for boundary problems, symbolic treatment of operators, computer algebra, and finite element methods, a symbolic approach to finite difference schemes, cylindrical algebraic decomposition and local Fourier analysis, and white noise analysis for stochastic partial differential equations. Further numerical-symbolic topics range from applied and computational geometry to computer algebra methods used for total variation energy minimization.
