This book stands as the visible mark of VECPAR'98 – 3rd International Meeting on Vector and Parallel Processing, which was held in Porto (Portugal) from 21 to 23 June 1998. VECPAR'98 was the third of the VECPAR series of conferences initiatedin1993and organisedby FEUP, the FacultyofEngineering of the University of Porto. The conference programme comprised a total of 6 invited talks, 66 c- tributedpapers and18posters. Thecontributed papers andposters were selected from 120 extended abstracts originating from 27 countries. Outline of the book The book, with 7 chapters, contains 41 contributed papers and 6 invited talks. The 41 papers included in these proceedings result from the reviewing of all papers presented at the conference. Each of the ?rst 6 chapters includes 1 of the 6 invited talks of the conference, and related papers. Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 are initiated by an introductory text providing the reader with a guide to the chapter contents. Chapter 1 is on numerical algebra.It begins with an introductory text by - cente Hern´andez, followedby the invited talk by Gene Golub, entitled Some - usual Eigenvalue Problems.The remaining11contributed articles in thischapter deal either with large scale eigenvalue problems or with linear system problems. Computational?uiddynamicsandcrashandstructural analysiswere brought under the same chapter and that is Chapter 2, which contains the invited talk byTimothyBarth, entitledParallel Domain Decomposition Pre-conditioning for Computational Fluid Dynamics, plus 8 contributed papers. Timothy Barth also authors the introductory text to the chapter.
