Algorithms for the numerical computation of definite integrals have been proposed for more than 300 years, but practical considerations have led to problems of ever-increasing complexity, so that , even with current computing speeds, numerical integration may be a difficult task. High dimension and complicated structure of the region of integration and singularities of the integrand are the main sources of difficulties. This volume contains 27 papers presented at the fourth conference on numerical integration held at the Mathematical Research Institute, Oberwolfach, in November 1992. The contributions give a survey of the latest results in quadrature and cubature. Since the subject matter lies somewhere between practical mathematics and analysis, a wide spectrum of topics is discussed. One main theme is the construction of rules, especially for integrands with singularities. Further focal points are error estimation in various classes of functions, structure of general rules of interpolatory type, lattice rules, and the many facets of the Gaussian rule. Many open problems were discussed in Oberwolfach, showing a liveliness and actuality of the theory. Nine of these problems could be given precise formulations; they are collected at the end of this volume. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

Researchers in ring theory or allied topics, such as the representation theory of finite dimensional Lie algebras, will appreciate this collection of expository lectures on advances in ring theory and their applications to other areas. Five of the lectures were delivered at a conference on Noetherian rings at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut, Oberwolfach, in January 1983, and the sixth was delivered at a London Mathematical Society Durham conference in July 1983. The study of the prime and primitive ideal spectra of various classes of rings forms a common theme in the lectures, and they touch on such topics as the structure of group rings of polycyclic-by-finite groups, localization in non commutative rings, and rings of differential operators. The lectures require the background of an advanced graduate student in ring theory and may be used in seminars in ring theory at this level. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
