Book Description:
The continuous progress in scientific research is one of the important factors explaining the constantly increasing demand for computational power. On the other hand, one of the results of such progress is the availability of more powerful computer platforms. To that end, this volume reviews a broad array of subjects based on the solutions to the daily problems in industrial production, research, and development.
