**Subject: Matrices with Orthonormal Columns**

I do not know whether I was the first to use the expression

"orthonormal matrix" for a matrix with orthonormal rows or columns,

but I do remember coining it for my own papers. Dirk Laurie (see

below) proposes replacing this term with "left-orthogonal" and

"right-orthogonal". I think this is undesirable for the following

reasons.

1. The term "orthogonal" changes to "unitary" when the matrix

becomes complex; and one would expect it to also change in

the proposed extension. On the other hand, "orthonormal" works

for both cases.

2. In my experience, most of the time you know the dimensions of the

matrix in question and therefore do not need to qualify the term

"orthonormal." But you always have to qualify the proposed

extension of "orthogonal", since by itself orthogonal implies that

the matrix is square.

3. Even where qualifiers are necessary, I find "left" and "right" too

indirect. Since it is the rows or columns of the matrix that are

orthonormal, I would prefer "row-'' or "column-orthonormal matrix."

Better yet, since the need for qualifiers is infrequent, just write

it out: "a matrix with orthonormal rows." Incidentally, this usage

squares with the way we treat the term "full rank". A matrix of

known dimensions is simply of "full rank." If its dimensions are

not known it is of "full row rank" or "full column rank," whichever

is appropriate.

Pete Stewart

In NA Digest two weeks ago Dirk Laurie <dpl@sun.ac.za> wrote:

There is as yet no generally accepted term for a (rectangular) matrix

with orthonormal columns. Some authors use "orthonormal matrix" but

that should have been the term for an orthogonal matrix.

I propose that we call it a "left-orthogonal" matrix, and a matrix with

orthonormal rows a "right-orthogonal" matrix.

Reasoning:

Q is orthogonal if and only if Q' is the inverse of Q: Q'Q = QQ' = I.

Q is left-orthogonal if and only if Q' is a left-inverse of Q: Q'Q = I.

Q is right-orthogonal if and only if Q' is a right-inverse of Q: QQ' = I.

**Subject: New Book, Schwarz-Christoffel Mapping**

We are pleased to announce the appearance of our book

"Schwarz-Christoffel Mapping" from Cambridge University Press

(http://uk.cambridge.org/order/WebBook.asp?ISBN=0521807263).

Schwarz and Christoffel invented their formula for conformal mapping

of polygons around 1868, but it took about a century for computers to

enable the application of the formula to any but the simplest examples.

Applications can be found in surprisingly diverse fields, such as

electrical engineering, fluid dynamics, queuing theory, and numerical

linear algebra. This book contains many computed figures and an appendix

with examples of how to use the SC Toolbox for MATLAB

(http://www.math.udel.edu/~driscoll/SC). It is the best (OK, only) book

devoted to Schwarz-Christoffel mapping to emerge in 70 years!

**Subject: Special Issue of LAA on Order Reduction of Large-Scale Systems **

LINEAR ALGEBRA AND ITS APPLICATIONS

CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue on Order Reduction of Large-Scale Systems

Order reduction is a common theme within the simulation of complex

physical processes. Such simulations often result in very large

systems. For example, large systems arise due to accuracy

requirements on the spatial discretization of fluids or structures,

in the context of lumped-circuit approximations of distributed

circuit elements, such as the interconnect or package of VLSI chips,

or in simulations of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), which

have both electrical and mechanical components. Dimension reduction is

generally required for purposes of expediency and/or storage

reduction. Applications include compressed representation, efficient

data analysis and feature extraction, real-time analysis, construction

of low-order control mechanisms, and many others. Various reduction

techniques have been devised, but many of these are described in terms

that are discipline-oriented or even application-specific even though

they share many common features and origins. This special issue is

devoted to exposing the similarities of these approaches, identifying

common features, addressing application-specific challenges, and

investigating how recent reduction methods for linear systems might

be applied to nonlinear problems.

LAA has previously published four special issues devoted to the field

of Linear Systems and Control: 1983 (vol. 50), 1989 (vols. 122-124),

1994 (vols. 203-204) and 2002 (to appear). The cross fertilization

between numerical linear algebra and linear system theory has been

very fruitful. Now, we feel it is time to broaden the scope of these

interactions. In the past decade there has been considerable activity

in the area of dimension reduction for linear dynamical control

systems. However, dimension reduction has a much broader range of

application and interpretation. The goals of this special issue are

to highlight leading approaches and remaining problems in model

reduction for linear system theory, emphasize connections to POD,

extend theory and methodology to nonlinear problems, address

application-specific techniques.

This special issue will be open to all papers with significant new

results in dimension reduction of large systems where either linear

algebraic methods play an important role or new tools and problems of

linear algebraic nature are presented. Survey papers that illustrate

common themes across disciplines and application areas, and especially

where Linear Algebra techniques play a central role are highly

encouraged. Papers must meet the publication standards of Linear

Algebra and Its Applications and will be refereed in the usual way.

Areas and topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not

limited to:

* Methods and Theory for

- Linear (time-invariant and time-varying) dynamical systems

- Descriptor (singular) systems

- Nonlinear dynamical systems

- Second-order systems

- Passive systems

- Infinite-dimensional systems (e.g., PDE based systems)

* Application-Specific Techniques for

- Conservative systems (e.g. Molecular Dynamics)

- Computational fluid dynamics

- Structural analysis (e.g., condensation or sub-structuring)

- Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)

- Image processing

- Chemical kinetics

* Low-Order Modeling

- Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD)

- Wavelet techniques in dimension reduction

- Reduced-order modeling of distributed circuit elements

* Low-Order Design

- Low-order filter design techniques

- Controller reduction techniques

The deadline for submission of papers is March 31, 2003, and

the special issue is expected to be published in 2004.

visitors. Start time may be either Fall 2002 or Spring 2003.

Length of stay may be from one semester to two years.

HMC is part of the Claremont Colleges, a consortium of five undergraduate

and two graduate institutions. Research activity at the Claremont Colleges

in the quantitative life sciences has been increasing rapidly. For example,

there is an ongoing project to develop mathematical models of cancer tumor

growth and treatment. The ideal visitor will forge research collaborations

at the Colleges, and will also contribute to the curriculum by teaching

seminar courses in mathematical biology.

Demonstrated excellence in teaching is essential for all candidates, as

is an established record of scholarship in the mathematical sciences.

Claremont is situated approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles,

at the foot of the San Gabriel mountains. The Colleges are within driving

distance from several other institutions of higher learning, such as Caltech,

UCLA, UC Riverside, and UC Irvine. The community is known for its

tree-lined streets and village charm. It is an easy drive from Claremont

to the cultural attractions of the greater Los Angeles area, as well as the

ocean, mountains and deserts of southern California.

Applicants should send a curriculum vita, a description of their teaching

philosophy and accomplishments, a description of their current research

program, and names and addresses of at least three persons as references.

Only references of finalists for the position will be contacted.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received, beginning June 1, 2002,

and the positions will remain open until filled. Harvey Mudd College is an

equal opportunity employer and is committed to the recruitment of candidates

historically underrepresented on college faculties.
