Summary : In 1971, the late Dr. J. Kolek of the Institute of Botany, Bratislava, organized the first International Symposium devoted exclusively to plant roots. At that time, perhaps only a few of the participants, gathered together in Tatranska Lomnica, sensed that a new era of root meetings was beginning. Nevertheless, it is now clear that Dr. Kolek's action, undertaken with his characteristic enormous enthusiasm, was rather pioneering, for it started a series a similar meetings. Moreover, what was rather exceptional at the time was the fact that the meeting was devoted to the functioning of just a single organ, the root. One possible reason for the unexpected success of the original, perhaps naive, idea of a Root Symposium might lie with the fact that plant roots have always been extremely popular as experimental material for cytologists, biochemists and physiologists whishing to probe processes as diverse as cell division and solute transport. Of course, the connection of roots with the rest of the plant is not forgotten either. This wide variety of disciplines is now coupled with the development of increasingly sophisticated experimental techniques to study some of these old problems. These factors undoubtedly contribute to the necessity of continuing the tradition of the root symposia. The common theme of root function gives, in addition, a certain unity to all these diverse activities.

Summary : Hairy roots are plant roots that have been genetically transformed and can be cultured on a large scale to replace whole plants for investigating plant secondary metabolism and its genetic manipulation, producing foreign proteins, propagating plants in agriculture, environmental research, and developing new engineering technology for the large-scale production of plant chemicals. The 21 papers cover culture and synthesis, plant propagation, and environmental and bioprocessing aspects. They include detailed instructions for experimental procedures and review recent developments with an emphasis on the cross-disciplinary nature of the research and the direction of future developments.

Summary : Numerical Methods for Roots of Polynomials - Part I (along with volume 2 covers most of the traditional methods for polynomial root-finding such as Newton’s, as well as numerous variations on them invented in the last few decades. Perhaps more importantly it covers recent developments such as Vincent’s method, simultaneous iterations, and matrix methods. There is an extensive chapter on evaluation of polynomials, including parallel methods and errors. There are pointers to robust and efficient programs. In short, it could be entitled “A Handbook of Methods for Polynomial Root-finding . This book will be invaluable to anyone doing research in polynomial roots, or teaching a graduate course on that topic. First comprehensive treatment of Root-Finding in several decades Gives description of high-grade software and where it can be down-loaded Very up-to-date in mid-2006; long chapter on matrix methods Includes Parallel methods, errors where appropriate Invaluable for research or graduate course
