Parallel computers have started to completely revolutionize scientific computation. Articles in this volume represent applied mathematics, computer science, and application aspects of parallel scientific computing. Major advances are discussed dealing with multiprocessor architectures, parallel algorithm development and analysis, parallel systems and programming languages. The optimization of the application of massively parallel architectures to real world problems will provide the impetus for the development of entirely new approaches to these technical situations.
