This book presents the refereed proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Applied Parallel Computing in Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Science, PARA'95, held in Lyngby, Denmark, in August 1995. The 60 revised full papers included have been contributed by physicists, chemists, and engineers, as well as by computer scientists and mathematicians, and document the successful cooperation of different scientific communities in the booming area of computational science and high performance computing. Many widely-used numerical algorithms and their applications on parallel computers are treated in detail.Our results, in fact, indicate that apparently good parallel models may not work as soon as either the problem or the machine are scaled up. Simplistic solutions may show not to work even for the simple cases for which they have been designed. On the ... Grants from Icarus (Cineca), Tracs (EPCC), Brazilian Science and Technology Council (CNPQ) and Basque Government are also acknowledged.
