The group websites are being consolidated, and the servers, phycomp and phony1 are working in rm 603. Phelafel and all the other group computers are now in Rm 461; for now only phelafel is up. If you cannot find material or need another computer please notify Dr Joan Adler.


Invitation for article for ``Computers in Science and Engineering" Special Edition on ``Computational Science in ``Developing Countries''


Joan Adler is on a sabbatical in Israel in 2017/8 and will retire in October 2018. Project students still VERY welcome.
All group activity now based in Rm. 603 with some computers in 461.
