Special Issue of Linear Algebra and Its Applications

In the last several years, there have been a number of advances in the accurate solution of eigenvalue problems. Many of the results have come from the realization that eigenvalue algorithms that exploit the structure of the problem can lead to more accurate eigenvalue and eigenvector computations.

To recognize these advances and to encourage further advances, we are proposing to have a third special issue of Linear Algebra and Its Applications on Accurate Solution of Eigenvalue Problems. This is the third such special issue. The first was volume 309 of Linear Algebra and Its Applications, published in early 2000, the second will appear sometime in 2002.

This special issue is in coordination with the International Workshop on Accurate Solution of Eigenvalue Problems IV held in Split, Croatia on June 24-27, 2002. The participants in the workshop will be strongly encouraged to submit papers to the special issue. Submissions are also welcome from non-participants as long as they are consistent with the themes of the workshop.

The editors for this special issue will be

Jesse L. Barlow
Department of Computer Science
and Engineering
The Pennsylvania State University
University Park, PA 16802-6106
