Wavelets originated in 1980's for the analysis of (seismic) signals and have seen an explosion of applications. However, almost all the material is based on wavelets over Euclidean spaces. This paper deals with an approach to the theory and algorithmic aspects of wavelets in a general separable Hilbert space framework. As examples Legendre wavelets on the interval [-1,+1] and scalar and vector spherical wavelets on the unit sphere 'Omega' are discussed in more detail.

Theoretical studies and numerical experiments suggest that unstructured high-order methods can provide solutions to otherwise intractable fluid flow problems within complex geometries. However, it remains the case that existing high-order schemes are generally less robust and more complex to implement than their low-order counterparts. These issues, in conjunction with difficulties generating high-order meshes, have limited the adoption of high-order...

The area of numerical analysis interacts with the area of control and systems theory in a number of ways, some of which are widely recognized and some of which are not fully appreciated or understood. This paper will briefly discuss some of these areas of interaction and place the papers in this volume in context.

This contribution gives an overview of current research in applying object oriented programming to scientific computing at the computational mechanics laboratory (LABMEC) at the school of civil engineering – UNICAMP. The main goal of applying object oriented programming to scientific computing is to implement increasingly complex algorithms in a structured manner and to hide the complexity behind a simple user interface. The following areas are current topics of research and documented within the...

This paper is devoted to the numerical solution of nonlinear elliptic partial differential equations. Such problems describe various phenomena in science. An approach that exploits Hilbert space theory in the numerical study of elliptic PDEs is the idea of preconditioning operators. In this survey paper we briefly summarize the main lines of this theory with various applications.
