Title: NA-NET numerical analysis net

Abstract

This report describes a facility called NA-NET created to allow numerical analysts (na) an easy method of communicating with one another. The main advantage of the NA-NET is uniformity of addressing. All mail is addressed to the Internet host na-net.ornl.gov'' at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Hence, members of the NA-NET do not need to remember complicated addresses or even where a member is currently located. As long as moving members change their e-mail address in the NA-NET everything works smoothly. The NA-NET system is currently located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. It is running on the same machine that serves netlib. Netlib is a separate facility that distributes mathematical software via electronic mail. For more information on netlib consult, or send the one-line message send index'' to netlib{at}ornl.gov. The following report describes the current NA-NET system from both a user's perspective and from an implementation perspective. Currently, there are over 2100 members in the NA-NET. An average of 110 mail messages pass through this facility daily.

  • This report describes a facility called NA-NET created to allow numerical analysts (na) an easy method of communicating with one another. The main advantage of the NA-NET is uniformity of addressing. All mail is addressed to the Internet host ``na-net.ornl.gov`` at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Hence, members of the NA-NET do not need to remember complicated addresses or even where a member is currently located. As long as moving members change their e-mail address in the NA-NET everything works smoothly. The NA-NET system is currently located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. It is running on the same machine that servesmore » netlib. Netlib is a separate facility that distributes mathematical software via electronic mail. For more information on netlib consult, or send the one-line message ``send index`` to netlib{at}ornl.gov. The following report describes the current NA-NET system from both a user`s perspective and from an implementation perspective. Currently, there are over 2100 members in the NA-NET.

  • This report examines fossil fuels from resources in the ground through production processes which deliver usable energy ready for consumption. It accounts for the complete direct and indirect energies which must be used to produce energy from fossil fuels, including the energies which drive or subsidize the production. It includes those energies used in the production of materials needed to build and operate the industrial production and transportation facilities which either directly produce energy or which indirectly provide energy or materials to the energy production processes.

  • This report examines industrial energy production in fossil fuels, emphasizing those of the Western United States. It accounts for the complete direct and indirect energies which must be used to produce energy from fossil fuels. These include the direct and indirect energies which drive or subsidize the production. It includes those energies sequestered in materials needed to build and operate the industrial production and transportation facilities which either directly or indirectly are necessary for energy production. The study includes all steps in bringing fossil fuels from reserves in the ground to the point of end use (exploration, extraction, conversion, andmore » transportation). (GRA)« less
  • NET-2 is a general purpose computer program which solves the nonlinear time domain response and linearized frequency domain response of arbitrary networks composed of electric circuit elements and system operational elements. NET-2 performs parameter variation studies, statistical studies, and network performance optimization. Models are included for gamma rate and neutron dose radiation effects. A topological network description is utilized using a free form user oriented input language.
