About the Authors:

Van Emden Henson

Van Emden Henson works for the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore California.

Van is the Group Leader of the Numerical Methods Group. Members of the Numerical Methods Group conduct research into the creation and development of computational algorithms to solve mathematical problems. A major emphasis is on devising scalable algorithms for solving science and engineering problems on massively parallel computers.

Van specializes in multigrid, especially algebraic and nonlinear multigrid, on massively parallel computers.

Van and Bill have previously collaborated on another SIAM monograph, The DFT: an owner's manual for the discrete Fourier transform.
