About this book

Looking back at the years that have passed since the realization of the very first electronic, multi-purpose computers, one observes a tremendous growth in hardware and software performance. Today, researchers and engi­ neers have access to computing power and software that can solve numerical problems which are not fully understood in terms of existing mathemati­ cal theory. Thus, computational sciences must in many respects be viewed as experimental disciplines. As a consequence, there is a demand for high­ quality, flexible software that allows, and even encourages, experimentation with alternative numerical strategies and mathematical models. Extensibil­ ity is then a key issue; the software must provide an efficient environment for incorporation of new methods and models that will be required in fu­ ture problem scenarios. The development of such kind of flexible software is a challenging and expensive task. One way to achieve these goals is to in­ vest much work in the design and implementation of generic software tools which can be used in a wide range of application fields. In order to provide a forum where researchers could present and discuss their contributions to the described development, an International Work­ shop on Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing was arranged in Oslo, Norway, September 16-18, 1996. This workshop, informally referred to as Sci Tools '96, was a collaboration between SINTEF Applied Mathe­ matics and the Departments of Informatics and Mathematics at the Uni­ versity of Oslo.
