Abstract : This report covers activities of John R. Rice (PI) and associates since October 1984. The activity of Kai Hwang is reported separately because it is being proposed that this grant be separated into two parts due to Kai Hwang's change of position to the University of Southern California. The activities include (1) The completion and submission for publication of one technical paper on expert systems for partial differential equations, (2) The completion of one report on high level parallel languages for multiprocessors, (3) One manuscript to be presented at a conference in October 1985, (4) Three manuscripts in progress on the use of supercomputers, the use of distributed multiprocessor systems for PDEs and new numerical methods, (5) Considerable process in the analysis and high level restructuring of several important PDE algorithms for parallel execution. Independently of this grant, the investigators have just obtained a multiprocessor machine (the FLEX 32) which will greatly enhance the research program. (Author)
