The Fortran 90 computer language is not just the long-awaited updating of Fortran to modern computing practices. It is also at the cutting edge of a much wider revolution in computing, that of multiprocessor computers and widespread parallel programming, a revolution rapidly moving to the desktop. Numerical Recipes in Fortran 90, as Volume 2 of the Fortran Numerical Recipes series, takes up where Volume I (now available as Numerical Recipes in Fortran 77) leaves off. Volume 2 (this volume) begins with three completely new chapters that provide a detailed introduction to the Fortran 90 language and then present the basic concepts of parallel programming, all with the same clarity and good cheer for which Numerical Recipes is famous. The authors explain why Fortran 90, and the general approach of "thinking parallel" that they advocate, is of immediate benefit to all scientific programmers, even on today's single-processor PCs and workstations, and even before multiprocessor machines arrive on the desktop. Routines coded with parallel language features are usually shorter, clearer, and closer to the underlying scientific ideas than their traditionally coded, do-loop laden counter-parts. All 350 plus routines from the second edition of Numerical Recipes are in this volume, almost all of them completely reworked algorithmically so as to be "parallel-ready" and to utilize Fortran 90's advanced language features. The introductory discussions and mathematical derivations of Volume I are not repeated in this volume (it is assumed that the reader will use this volume in conjunction with Volume l), so the text discussion that accompanies the individual routines focuses instead on Fortran 90 language tips, and on conceptual "parallel hints." Numerous such discussions are sprinkled throughout this volume. Also included is a foreword by Michael Metcalf, one of Fortran 90's original designers.

Renewable energies constitute excellent solutions to both the increase of energy consumption and environment problems. Among these energies, wind energy is very interesting. Wind energy is the subject of advanced research. In the development of wind turbine, the design of its different structures is very important. It will ensure: the robustness of the system, the energy efficiency, the optimal cost and the high reliability. The use of advanced control technology and new technology products allows bringing the wind energy conversion system in its optimal operating mode. Different strategies of control can be applied on generators, systems relating to blades, etc. in order to extract maximal power from the wind. The goal of this book is to present recent works on design, control and applications in wind energy conversion systems.

This conference was held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, July 10-14, 2000. This volume contains papers presented at the conference covering a broad range of topics in theoretical and applied wave propagation in the general areas of acoustics, electromagnetism, and elasticity. Both direct and inverse problems are well represented. This volume, along with the three previous ones, presents a state-of-the-art primer for research in wave propagation. The conference is conducted by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique with the cooperation of SIAM.
