**Subject: FEMLAB Version 2.0**

COMSOL has released FEMLAB Version 2.0.

FEMLAB Goes 3-D, Adds a New Dimension in Ease of Use to Multiphysics

Modeling.

"Obviously, Version 2.0 allows our users to model problems that they

could never dream of tackling before," comments Lars Langemyr,

COMSOL's Vice President of R&D. What many people might not appreciate,

though, is that this release also takes a considerable burden off

people who have been trying to use available 2-D packages to tackle

some of the more complex real-world applications. Certainly, 2-D

multiphysics modeling software can prove quite useful for certain

classes of problems. Further, users are able to make appropriate

assumptions and simplifications could also do a reasonable job of

approximating a 3-D problem with existing packages. But making these

assumptions correctly and intelligently sometimes takes considerable

knowledge, skill and experience. For instance, users might have to ask

themselves: Where in the model should I take a 2-D cross-section? How

do I handle boundary conditions?

With the release of FEMLAB 2.0, users no longer need worry about such

issues," adds Langemyr, "because they can create a full 3-D model in a

fraction of the time it would take them to make intelligent decisions

about the simplifications and assumptions involved in setting up a 2-D

model."

**Subject: Workshop on Novel Approaches to Hard Discrete Optimization**

Workshop on Novel Approaches to Hard Discrete Optimization

Supported by the Fields Institute (http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/)

Dates:

Thursday to Saturday April 26-28, 2001

Location:

The University of Waterloo, Department of Combinatorics and Optimization,

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada N2L 3G1

Organizers:

Kurt Anstreicher, The University of Iowa.

Panos Pardalos, University of Florida.

Franz Rendl, Universitaet Klagenfurt.

Tony Vannelli, University of Waterloo.

Henry Wolkowicz, University of Waterloo.

The breathtaking progress in algorithmic nonlinear optimization, but also in

computer hardware has thrown new light on the analysis of NP-hard problems.

Recently, a major break-through was achieved to solve QAP of sizes (n=30)

unthinkable by conventional methods. This progress was due in part to a new

nonlinear relaxation for QAP, but also to new computing facilities, allowing

for massive parallel computation. Similar progress is also made in other

areas, such as clique and coloring on massive graphs.

The aim of the workshop is therefore to bring together researchers from

several communities, such as:

algorithmic nonlinear optimization

combinatorial optimization, dealing with computational methods for

NP-hard problems

computer scientists interested in scientific parallel computing,

who share a common interest to do computations on (large-scale) hard

combinatorial optimization problems.

Topics to be covered include:

Semidefinite programming and reformulation schemes

Quadratic and multi-dimensional assignment problems

Boolean quadratic programming

Massive graph problems

Massively parallel distributed processing

VLSI design

MATHEMATICS INSTITUTE, UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK

Marie Curie Postgraduate Studentships

The Department currently has a number of Marie Curie Studentships in the areas

of Algebraic Geometry, Dynamical Systems and Stochastic Analysis. These will

fund PhD students from EU Countries to visit the Department at Warwick for a

period between 3 and 12 months. Interested students should contact one of

the following people:

Mark Gross: mgross@maths.warwick.ac.uk (Algebraic Geometry)

Sebastian van Strien: strien@maths.warwick.ac.uk (Dynamical Systems)

David Elworthy: kde@maths.warwick.ac.uk (Stochastic Analysis)

or, in addition, for students interested in computational aspects of

the subjects,

Andrew Stuart: stuart@maths.warwick.ac.uk

or, for general information about these and other graduate possibilities,

**Subject: Postdoctoral Postion at National Energy Technology Laboratory**

The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Morgantown, West

Virginia, has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Office

of Science and Technology's Computational Energy Science Focus Area. The

Postdoctoral Fellow will have the opportunity enhance the capabilities to

simulate heavily-loaded gas/particle flows, using a well developed

multiphase flow model, MFIX. The project will include developing theory

and numerical algorithms for a continuum description of dense granular

flow, implementing the algorithms into an existing code, conducting

simulations, and comparing results with experimental data. The Fellow

will be expected to work with other members of the Computational Energy

Science Focus Area, and with researchers from university, national labs,

and industry. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or have Permanent Resident

Alien (PRA) status.

A candidate should possess a Ph.D. in chemical, mechanical or civil

engineering or equivalent with an emphasis on Computational Fluid Dynamics

(CFD) or Computational Mechanics. The candidate should have demonstrated

expertise in formulating, implementing, and testing numerical algorithms.

Expertise in Fortran programming is required. Good oral and written

communication skills are required. Experience with large finite volume

CFD models, numerical linear algebra, and granular flow theory are

desirable.

NETL, a Fossil Energy field organization whose mission is solving national

energy and environmental problems, is federally owned and operated. NETL

implements a broad range of energy and environmental programs for the U.

S. Department of Energy.

If you meet the qualifications for this position, in order to apply please

send a letter of introduction, resume, and list of publications to:
