Anders Barrlund

Our dear friend and colleague Anders Barrlund died on Monday,

July 24 in Umea, Sweden, only 38 years old.

Anders came as a young and talented student to the Department

of Computing Science in the beginning of the 80's. After his

Masters degree in 1985 he started his postgraduate education

in Numerical Analysis and finished his Licentiate Degree in

1988 and his PhD Degree in 1991. Since then, Anders has held

different positions at the Umea University. He was appointed

Docent and Universitetslektor (Associate Professor with tenure)

by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in 1996.

Anders has always shown a great enthusiasm for his work at

the Department, and he was of great inspiration for

both students and colleagues. Anders was very much appreciated

as a teacher, and he was also rewarded several prizes

for his pedagogical interests and achievements.

Anders has also given important scientific contributions in

Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, with publications

in, for example, BIT, Computational Statistics, J. of Computational

and Applied Mathematics, Linear Algebra and Its Applications,

Numerische Mathematik and SIAM J. on Matrix Analysis and Applications.

His PhD Thesis is entitled "Numerical Solution of Higher Index

Differential Algebraic Systems" (Steve Campbell, North Carolina

State Univ. was the external faculty opponent when Anders defended

his Thesis in 1991, Bo Kagstrom was his supervisor and examiner).

His succeeding publications give important contributions to theory,

algorithms and software for solving general differential-algebraic (DAE)

systems of equations. Most notably is his Constrained Least Squares (CLS)

methods which are applicable for solving higher index DAE systems.

Numerical linear algebra has been another of his main research areas.

His contributions include a series of important perturbation results

on the polar decomposition, the LDL^T and LU decompositions, and the

generalized QR factorization. Anders has also published new results

on the efficient solution of constrained least squares problems with

Kronecker product structure. Most recently, he published a paper

entitled "The p-relative distance is a metric" in SIMAX (21:2,2000).

His results are rich in creativity.

Anders also had the interest and the ability to quickly get into a

new subject, which also led to fruitful collaborations with

statisticians and mathematicians.

Since the end of 1998, Anders has suffered from a serious illness.

He recovered, and we were all very happy when he could join us

again in different activities. Anders leaves us with great sorrow, but

his memory will continue to inspire us and the work at the Department.

**Subject: Looking for Block Tridiagonal Solvers**

I'm looking for algorithms/code for solving unsymmetric block

tridiagonal systems of linear equations Ax=b efficiently on modern

desktop machines e.g., Pentium systems. In our problem the blocks are

all large, square, and equal sized. In addition, some blocks may be

repeated (without pattern) and in special cases we know the inverses of

all blocks. Typically block size is >10^2 and matrix A size is

>10000^2, so the problem is very sparse. Generalization to

pentadiagonal, heptadiagonal, etc systems would be a welcome feature.

An extensive search of netlib indicates that variants of this problem

have been tacked many times. Also welcome would be advice on what

simple strategies might be efficient (e.g., treat it as a band diagonal

system or as a simple tridiagonal system where each element is a

matrix).

**Subject: Special Issue on Matrix Computations and Statistics**

Special Issue of Computational Statistics and Data Analysis

MATRIX COMPUTATIONS AND STATISTICS

The interaction between matrix computations and statistics has had a

major impact on both fields. Historically, there is the relationship between

the Gauss-Markov linear model and least squares, and that between singular

values and principal components. In the last two decades, this interaction has been enhanced by the development of total least squares and

errors-in-variables problems, and the recent surge in interest in

latent semantic indexing.

For these reasons, the journal Computational Statistics and Data Analysis

will have a special issue on Matrix Computations and Statistics.

Submissions are welcome in the following areas: classical linear least squares,

total least squares, matrix computations for principal components and factor

analysis, matrix computations in genetics, regularization techniques,

clustering and classification, text and data mining applications, probabilistic

IR models, and hypertext models. We also welcome submissions that

do not fit into these areas if they use matrix computations for a statistical

application.

Position at the University of Vienna (Austria)

Development of modular global optimization

techniques and software in a branch and bound framework

The Institute for Mathematics of the University of Vienna invites

applications for a post-doctoral research position in optimization.

The contract is for at most three years, probably beginning Fall 2000

(dependent on the starting date of a European project to be funded by

the European Union).

Vienna, the capital of Austria, is one of the great scientific,

politic, and cultural centers of the world.

The Computational Mathematics group (URL: http://solon.cma.univie.ac.at)

is currently primarily involved in the development of high quality

software for global optimization and in interdisciplinary applications

of optimization (e.g., to protein folding and to parameter estimation

in stochastic models). The successful applicant will participate in the

development of modular techniques and software for global optimization

in a branch and bound framework, with emphasis on the combination of

techniques from

- large-scale local optimization

- combinatorial optimization

- constrained (logic) programming

- interval analysis

Candidates must have a Ph. D. in Mathematics, Operations Research,

or Computer Science. Especially welcome are applicants who have

- excellent practical knowledge of numerical methods for optimization

and linear algebra,

- excellent programming skills in C and C++, and

- previous experience with branch and bound methods.

Interested researchers should contact

Prof. Arnold Neumaier (neum@cma.univie.ac.at),

preferably before September 15, 2000.

**Subject: Postdoctoral Position at University of Tuebingen, Germany**

Postdoctoral Position available

INSTITUTION: Sonderforschungsgereich 382, Transferbereich

UNIVERSITY : Universitaet Tuebingen, Germany

URL : http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/uni/opx/

As part of the new Transferbereich 3040 "Numerical simulation of induction

heating in car manufacturing" a full postdoctoral position will become available

at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, for the period October 1st, 2000

through September 30th, 2002.

The position is part of a joint project of DaimlerChrysler corporation, FEMpro

Ltd. and researchers of the SFB 382. The goal of the project is to employ

advanced techniques in the numerical solution of PDEs for the simulation of

induction heating processes that play a crucial role in car manufacturing.

Hierarchical modeling, coupling of finite elements and boundary elements, fast

summation methods and multilevel iterative solvers will be core techniques.

Issues of object oriented software design and pre- and postprocessing will also

be important.

Applicants should have a PhD in applied mathematics, computational physics or

theoretical electrical engineering. Programming skills in C or C++ are essential

and experience in dealing with large scientific codes is desirable. The position

does not involve any teaching or administrative duties. Fluency in *either*

English *or* German is required and the candidate should be able to work and

communicate within a team.

The candidate is expected to contribute to research and software development

within the framework of the project. Yet, as it tackles a challenging problem

and relies on cutting edge numerical methods, there will be plenty of

opportunity for scientific investigations related to finite elements, boundary

elements and fast solution methods. On the other hand, the project is geared to

a particular industrial application. Thus, an important aspect will be how to

tailor numerical methods to practical needs. In sum, the position offers both

insights into advanced numerical techniques and a chance to become familiar with

industrial applications.

The salary will be according to the BAT IIa (see http://www.ukl.uni-freiburg.de/

verwalt/dez4/abt_1/bat_text/bat.html), which roughly amounts to DM 5,500 per

month, before taxes. Social security and health care is fully covered and staff

is entitled to about five weeks of paid holidays per year. For more information

about the town of Tuebingen see http://www.tuebingen-info.de/,

http://www.tuebingen.de/. To get an impression about the university check out

http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/.

Applications for this position should be filed as soon as possible (missing

documents can be submitted later, e-mail applications are encouraged). They

should include graduation reports, a curriculum vita, a brief outline of recent

scientific activities, and an account of experience in software development.

Contents of the Special Issue of the Journal 'Reliable Computing' on

Applications to Control, Signals, and Systems

vol. 6, issue 3, August 2000

Guest editors: Juergen Garloff and Eric Walter

Interval computation (or, more generally, guaranteed computation) is not

yet a part of the tools available to most researchers and engineers in

control and signal processing. On the other hand, control and signal

processing are not yet duly recognized as fruitful fields for applications

by most of the researchers working on interval computation. On a more

theoretical level, each group can benefit from importing the concepts,

techniques, and open problems from the other. The aim of this Special

Issue is to contribute to filling the gap between the two communities.
