BIT Numerical Mathematics

ISSN: 0006-3835 (Print) 1572-9125 (Online)


BIT was started by Carl Erik Fröberg in 1961. The name is an acronym for "Tidskrift för Informationsbehandling" read backwards. From the outset, a wide area of computer science and technology was covered, but since 1992 the focus has been on Numerical Mathematics.

Aims and Scope
BIT publishes original research papers in the rapidly developing field of numerical analysis. The essential areas covered by BIT are development and analysis of numerical methods as well as the design and use of algorithms for scientific computing. Topics emphasized by BIT include numerical methods in approximation, linear algebra, and ordinary and partial differential equations, but BIT also publishes papers in areas such as numerical functional analysis and numerical optimization.

Next BIT Circus for young researchers is planned August 26-27, 2015 in Umeå:
