The International Symposium on Scientific Computing, Computer Arithmetic and
Validated Numerics SCAN is held biannually, the fourth conference took place in
Wuppertal 1995.

This volume contains contributions from outstanding research specialists
based on their presentations at SCAN-95. It covers all aspects of scientific
computing with validation, starting with the latest developments in the design
of floating point units together with algorithms for floating point operations
and elementary function evaluations with maximum accuracy.
The book continues by
treating scientific computing methods for many areas of applied
mathematics such
as numerical linear algebra, nonlinear equations, global optimization, ordinary
and partial differential equations and dynamical systems. Some computer science
aspects like complexity are also considered as are examples where validation
methods have successfully be used in applications from the
engineering sciences.

**With prospective contributions by:**
