The article offers information about humorous column "Group Therapy," which intends to evoke laughter and mirth in the serious mathematical journal and build interpersonal relation. It discusses personal life with its members along with their relation with the group therapy in terms of mathematical contexts. It states how the members refer their families as isomorphic and quasidihedral group and refers to words like crazy as topologically mixing.

    We study a routing problem that arises on SIMD parallel architectures whose communication network forms a toroidal mesh. We assume there exists a set of k message descriptors {(x[sub I], y[sub I])|I = 1, 2, ... k}, where (x[sub I], y[sub I]) indicates that the ith message's recipient is offset...

    We prove that computing a single pair of vertices that are mapped onto each other by an isomorphism f between two isomorphic graphs is as hard as computing f itself. This result optimally improves upon a result of G�l, Halevi, Lipton, and Petrank. We establish a similar, albeit slightly...
