Subject: MATLAB incorportates LAPACK

We have posted new versions of the LAPACK-based numerics library for
use with MATLAB 5.3 (Release 11 of the MathWorks CD). The library
is described in the "Cleve's Corner" article in the Winter 2000 issue
of MATLAB News and Notes. See:

The new versions fix a bug associated with "balancing" in eigenvector
calculations for nonsymmetric matrices. For some matrices, the
statement [V,D] = eig(A) was producing incorrect eigenvectors.

The libraries are available as links from the Cleve's Corner Supplement:

or via anonymous FTP from

in directory pub/tech-support/numerics. Versions are available for Windows,
Solaris on HyperSPARC (sun4m), Solaris on UltraSPARC (sun4u) and Linux on x86.
Please replace any libraries you may have downloaded earlier with these
corrected versions.

Subject: Special Issue of IJASC on Numerical Solution of ODEs


International Journal of
Recent Developments in
Numerical Solution of ODEs.

Submission Deadline: December 17, 2000

The past years have witnessed the rapid development of Numerical
Solution of ODEs. Intenational Journal of Applied Science and
Computation is planning a special issue devoted to researchers and
developers interested in theory, methods and practice aspects of
numerical solution of ODES. In particular, it will focus on four aspects

1) Numerical methods preserving certain qualitative features of the flow
( e.g. symplecticity, unitaryness, isospectrality, phase, etc).
Development of new techniques that allow to gain insight into the
behaviour of numerical methods.

2) Numerical methods for special types of equations (e.g. molecular
dynamics, celestial mechanics, quamtum mechanics) whose demands cannot
be satisfactorily provided by standard numerical integrators.
Experimental fitting tecniques and methods based on Difference equations
are especially wellcome.

3) Parallel Computations. Higher accurate numerical methods and methods
with minimun computational cost.

The deadline for submissions is December 17, 2000. To submit please send
three copies of a full paper to any of the

San Diego SuperComputer Center, San Diego, California
July 6th-7th 2000

Deadline for abstracts: May 5, 2000
Deadline for early registration: June 9, 2000

OpenMP has recently emerged as the definitive standard for
shared memory parallel programming. For the first time, it
is possible to write parallel programs which are portable
across the majority of shared memory parallel computers.

The Workshop on OpenMP Applications and Tools (WOMPAT 2000)
will be held on July 6 and 7 at the San Diego Supercomputer
Center, San Diego, California. It is dedicated to the OpenMP
language and its use. It is intended to provide an opportunity
for users and developers of OpenMP to meet, share ideas and
experiences, and to discuss the latest developments in OpenMP
and its applications.

The program will consist of invited presentations, contributed
talks, and a panel discussion. Contributions to the program are
encouraged on all aspects of this subject.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

. OpenMP implementations
. Proposals for, and evaluation of, language extensions
. Applications development experiences and case studies
. Comparisons with other approaches such as MPI and HPF
. Benchmarking and performance studies
. Compilers, debuggers and performance analysis tools for


The workshop will be preceded by a half-day tutorial on OpenMP
on July 5 (afternoon), to be delivered by Tim Mattson.
It will include hands-on exercises. The number of participants
is strictly limited to 16.


We invite abstracts for presentations on topics of relevance
to OpenMP. Abstracts of up to 1000 words should be submitted
electronically in text format to by
May 5, 2000. They should contain enough technical content for
the program committee to evaluate the contribution of the
presentation to the workshop.


Submission of abstracts: 5 May 2000
Notification of acceptance: 29 May 2000
Early registration deadline: 9 June 2000

Information on registration will be made available on the web.

We are pleased to announce a small informal workshop
sponsored by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and
Development Center (ERDC) Major Shared Resource Center
(MSRC) as part of the Programming Environment and
Training program.

Personal digital assistants, digital appliances, E-books,
wearable computers, wireless networking, and emerging
software infrastructures represent some of the
technologies that are likely to form part of the
everyday interface to a variety of computing environments.
The convergence of these technologies with the Grid - the
evolving information architecture integrating computing,
data exploration, large databases, and remote
instrumentation - creates many new opportunities for
ubiquitous access to the nation's high performance
computing infrastructure. This workshop will bring
together people from the HPC community to exchange
information about this future.

There will be a registration fee of $100, and some travel
assistance for students may be available.

Please respond as soon as possible to
with your expression of interest in participating in
this workshop.

Subject: Research Position at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire
Fixed Term (4 years with possible extension)

A research position is available within the Numerical Analysis Group
at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory of the Central Laboratory of
the Research Councils. Duties will involve performing independent
but relevant research, with the goal of publication in the open
literature and presenting the results at national and international
conferences. Duties will include the production of high-quality
numerical software connected with this research and the promotion of
the Group's activities within the UK academic community. There will
also be the opportunity to lecture in occasional Laboratory courses
on numerical analysis and computing areas.

The ideal candidate will hold a doctoral degree in numerical
analysis or a closely related mathematical area. Preference will be
given to candidates with a high international profile whose research
interests overlap those of existing members of the Group,
particularly in the solution of large-scale linear or nonlinear
equations, and of eigenvalue and numerical optimization problems.
Although the successful applicant will be expected to interact with
other members of the Group, strong evidence of the ability to work
independently will be expected. Considerable experience of
programming in Fortran and of using standard numerical analysis
libraries such as BLAS and LAPACK is essential. Additional
programming skills will be considered an advantage. Further
information on the Group can be found on
