I believe it would be an excellent move from Ageia to declare they do 
not intend
to defend the rights of this rediculous patent, or to simply donate the 
patent to the public
Patent on Gauss-Seidel. God help us.
I implemented rattle/shake type of iterative relaxational projection 
solvers for LCP-look-a-like models
for hard core particles and constrained molecules in 1989.
So, by this email I urge the Ageia people to explain what they mean by this
patent. I'm sure there is someone out there reading this list, that can 
propagate this discussion
to the right level at Ageia.
