Foundations Of Computational Mathematics, Proceedings Of Smalefest 2000

This invaluable book contains 19 papers selected from those submitted to a conference held in Hong Kong in July 2000 to celebrate the 70th birthday of Professor Steve Smale. It may be regarded as a continuation of the proceedings of SMALEFEST 1990 ( From Topology to Computation ) held in Berkeley, USA, 10 years before, but with the focus on the area in which Smale worked more intensively during the '90's, namely the foundations of computational mathematics.
