Faculty of Engineering, University of Alberta; Faculty of Science, University of Alberta. As on previous occasions, advice and general guidance were provided by the International Steering Committee. The next IMSE conference will be held in August 2002 at the University be found on the of Saint-Etienne, France. Details concerning this event can VVEB pagehttp://wwwean. univ-st-etienne. fr/imse2002/index. htm. This volume contains five invited papers and thirty-five contributed pa- pers accepted after peer review. The papers are arranged in alphabetical order by (first) author's surname. The editors would like to record their thanks to the referees for their willingness to review the papers, and to the staff at Birkhauser Boston, who have handled the publication process with impressive efficiency. But, above all, they are indebted to Edward McDonald, Alan Morrison, and Alan Bryden for their help in the preparation of the typescript.

"The present book...focuses on the solution of mathematical models from various physical domains, using integral methods in conjunction with approximation schemes. Actually, its aim is to show...research work in which integration, in one form or another, is the main investigative tool.
A lot of problems are solved in areas such as solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, thermoelasticity, plates and shells, liquid crystals, diffusion and diffraction theory, Hamiltonian systems, resonance, nonlinear waves, plasma, flight dynamics and structural networks.... Generally, this book provides new results in the study of various physical and mechanical models and offers illustrations of efficient methods with numerical results and analytical methods. It can be useful to researchers and practitioners in applied mathematics, mechanical engineering and theoretical physicists, interested in current research in ordinary and partial differential equations, integral equations and numerical analysis."
