Algorithm 629: An integral equation program for Laplace's equation in three dimensions
Kendall E. Atkinson
Pages: 85-96
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214393

A test problem generator for large-scale unconstrained optimization
R. S. Dembo, T. Steihaug
Pages: 97-102
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214394
A test problem generator for large-scale unconstrained optimization is described. It permits the generation of a poorly or well-conditioned problems of arbitrary size, derived from nonlinear network flow models. An eigenvalue analysis provides...

Algorithm 630: BBVSCG–a variable-storage algorithm for function minimization
A. Buckley, A. Lenir
Pages: 103-119
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214395

Algorithm 631: Finding a bracketed zero by Larkin's method of rational interpolation
Victor Norton
Pages: 120-134
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214396

Algorithm 632: A program for the 0–1 multiple knapsack problem
Silvano Martello, Paolo Toth
Pages: 135-140
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214397

Modification of the minimum-degree algorithm by multiple elimination
Joseph W. H. Liu
Pages: 141-153
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214398
The most widely used ordering scheme to reduce fills and operations in sparse matrix computation is the minimum-degree algorithm. The notion of multiple elimination is introduced here as a modification to the conventional...

A note on combination generators
C. T. Gan
Pages: 154-156
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214401
A recent study by Akl indicates that Mifsud's algorithm, which involves unnecessary searching operations, is the fastest existing combination generator. A modified Page and Wilson's algorithm, which is essentially similar to Mifsud's algorithm,...

Sequential random sampling
J. H. Ahrens, U. Dieter
Pages: 157-169
DOI: 10.1145/214392.214402
Fast algorithms for selecting a random set of exactly k records from a file of n records are constructed. Selection is sequential: the sample records are chosen in the same order in which they occur in the file....
