**Subject: First Courses in Numerical Analysis**

Dear colleagues,

I would like to know who gave, in each country, the first "real" course in

numerical analysis. If you have any information, could you please write me,

giving as much details as possible: name of the teacher, name of the course,

university where it was given, dates, contents of the course, etc.

I thank everyone in advance.

**Subject: Looking for Large Generalized Eigenvalue Problems**

We have developed a parallel program that computes the small extreme

eigenvalues of A x = lambda B x, where A is symmetric (possibly indefinite)

and B is SPD. It uses the CG iteration to minimize the Rayleigh quotient.

Since the Rayleigh quotient for the generalized eigenvalue problem

is not a quadratic function of x, so far there is no known mathematical

proof, but it is working. Recently, we have developed a new parallel

preconditioner and it seems to work better than the classical Incomplete

Chelesky factorization. We have tested our program on 5-point Laplacian and

some ill-conditioned problems from Harwell-Boeing on the CRAY-T3E with B=I.

We are looking for some real applications for which our method will be useful.

Also, we will make available our program on the internet, which is written

in Fortran-77 with MPI library.

Dear Colleagues,

I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know whether

there is a Code for the quotient-difference algorithm, Rutishauser's

Thank you in advance.

Help with discretization

Dear members of this list:

I am working on the first order linear partial differential equations of

only, so as to obtain a difference-differential equation. Please kindly

help. Also, how can obtain the dicrete version of the following interation

function F(u(t,a); v(t,a)), ,where u(t,a), is the population density of

males and v(t,a) for females.

**Subject: Question on Kronecker Products**

Hi,

I have a question related to finding charecterization of a matrix

involving the kronecker product and I can't seem to be able to crack it.

Please let me know if anyone had seen similar problem I will pose

below.

convention

uppercase letters --------matrices

.kron symbol for kronecker product of two matrices

'P' ---- 2*m x m matrix

'I' ---- 2*m x 2*m identity matrix

'B' ---- 2*m x 2*m matrix with all elements zero except lower

super diagonal elements, some of these also can be zero

like

|0 0 0 0 0|

|1 0 0 0 0|

B=|0 0 0 0 0|

|0 0 1 0 0|

|0 0 0 1 0|

then C=[I B] is a matrix formed by augmenting B to I

clearly C is full rank then

for the matrix

D= C.kron P =[P B*P] is a (2*m x 2*m) matrix

for D to be full rank

what is the condition on P ?

how to characterize P ?

Yours sincerely

Viswanath

**Subject: A Mathematics Metasearch Facility**

A preliminary version of a Mathematics Metasearch Machine

is available at http://branchers.lamar.edu

The site is suitable for cross disciplinary search and

in addition to being a list of links it allows for simple

one-step search of several sites.

To paraphrase a famous quote "If we see far it is because

we are perched on the shoulder of giants." In other words

this site does not offer an independent database. However,

plans are underway to remedy that shortcoming in about 18

months. Meanwhile please forward suggestions, corrections and

additions to me.

For now our goal is to list sites that

a) Have an English version

b) Contain substantial, reusable, focused, categorized

mathematics covering a subspecialty (as in a chapter

of an encyclopedia or a category in MR)

Once our database comes on line we will use a finer mesh

to collect information.

2 postdoctoral positions of one year are opened in the CHPV team (Calcul Haute

Performance et Validation) of the LIP6 Laboratory (Laboratoire d'Informatique

de Paris 6). A tool for numerical validation, the CADNA library, has been

developed to control the round-off error propagation in scientific codes

using the floating-point arithmetic. This library is available for the C,

Fortran and ADA language. The use of CADNA requires modifications for its

implementation on classical codes.

The aim is to develop pre-compilers for an automatic implementation of CADNA

for the three language. An interface for informations on accuracy of results

provided by CADNA is also part of the work.

Motivated candidates must have experience in any or all of the following

categories:

syntaxic analysis,

C, Fortran or ADA languages,

General Unix systems and Linux in particular,

General knowledge in scientific computing.

These positions are immediately available.
