New Zealand Approximation Theory Group

### (aka Approximation down under)

Welcome to the homepage of the
**New Zealand/Aotearoa Approximation Theory Group**.
The core of the group is
Rick Beatson (Canterbury)
and Shayne Waldron (Auckland),
both of whom work fulltime on Approximation Theory,
and consists of the following
people.
Here is a list of the addresses and interests of the Approximation Theorists
working in
Australasia.

## Conferences

**Surface Approximation and Visualisation**
University of Canterbury 15-18 February 1999
**Surface Approximation and Visualisation II**
Westport 19-22 February 2002
## Visitors

Professor Len Bos of the University of Calgary visits Norm Levenberg
at the University of Auckland every year. Here is a list of
visitors to and from Australasia.
One of the aims of the group is to support postdocs in Approximation Theory.
You are most welcome to come and visit us
(visitor information).
## Approximation Theory Network

The
AT-NET
(Approximation Theory Network)
is intended as a ready means
for the distribution of information to the Approximation Theory community.
The more people know about it and sign on, the better for the community.
Here are the
AT-NET bulletins.
There is also
NA-NET
(Numerical Analysis Network)
and
OP-SF-NET
(Orthogonal Polyomials and Special Functions Network).
## Bibliographic data bases

The University of Auckland is a mirror site for the highly useful
**Spline Bibliography** currently maintained by
Carl de Boor, and provides a convenient
**electronic form** for submitting references to it.
It can be searched electronically in
Madison or using the JAT version of
find_out (faster).
## Journals

The main journals in Approximation Theory are
Use
Paul Nevai
and
Giuseppe Rodriguez
's most excellent
**CA + EJA + JAT search**
to search the tables of contents of all three journals (simultaneously!).
