The foundation of computational science is computational mathematics, and the general-purpose tools used to do computational mathematics are known as mathematical software. This book provides an overview of the latest research in these areas. It contains 19 contributions from 30 leading researchers who participated in the International Symposium for Computational Science held at Purdue University in May 1999. They gathered to celebrate the 65th birthday of Professor John R. Rice of Purdue University. Among the topics discussed are delivery mechanisms for numerical algorithms, intelligent systems for recommending scientific software. A retrospective of the first 50 years of mathematical software development is also included. B. Ford. Developing a numerical algorithms library. IMA Bulletin, 8:332-336, 1972.  B. Ford, J.
