About this book


The GAMM Committee for "Efficient Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations" organizes seminars and workshops on subjects concerning the algorithmic treatment of partial differential equations. The topics are discretisation methods like the finite element and the boundary element method for various type of applications in struc­ tural and fluid mechanics. Particular attention is devoted to advanced solution method". The latest seminar in this series was the 12th Kiel-Seminar which took place on January 19-21, 1996 at Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel and focussed on the topic Boundary Elements: Implementation and Analysis of Advanced Algorithms. The seminar was attended by 65 scientists from 10 countries. 23 lectures were given, including two survey lectures. In the last years, a remarkable progress in the numerical treatment of boundary de­ ment methods (BEM) has been obtained in Germany. This is, in particular, a res~I1t of a Schwerpunktverfahren supported by the DFG. Many aspects of the BEM are not ouly analysed but also implemented. Therefore, these proceedings present a number of papers on implementational aspects besides the analysis of advanced techniques.
