Abstract : The 8th Texas International Conference on Approximation Theory, sponsored by NSF and the U.S. Army Research Office, was hosted by Texas A&M University in College Station,"January 8-- 12, 1995. The organizers of this conference were Charles K. Chui, Larry L. Schumaker, Joseph D. Ward, Ewald Quak, and N. Sivakumar. Previous conferences in this series were held in 1973, 1976, 1980, and 1992 in Austin, and 1983, 1986, and 1989 in College Station. The conference was attended by 210 mathematicians from 21 different countries. In addition to a large number of contributed talks, there were three special sessions on interdisciplinary topics of current research interest, arranged by Akram Aldroubi (on Wavelets), Chandrajit Bajaj (on Scientific Visualization), and Joseph Warren (on Computer Geometric Aided Design).Two volumes of the conference proceedings, carefully edited by C. K. Chui and L. L. Schumaker, will be published by World Scientific Publishing. The central theme of Volume I is the core of approximation theory. It includes such important areas as qualitative approximations, interpolation theory, rational approximations, radial-'basis' functions, and splines. The second volume' focuses on topics related to wavelet analysis, including multiresolution and multi-level approximation. sub division schemes in CAGD. and applications.
