Subject: Special Issue of Linear Algebra and its Applications

Special Issue in honor of Heydar Radjavi

Linear Algebra and its Applications is pleased to announce a
special issue in honor of Professor Heydar Radjavi, in recognition of his
many important contributions to linear algebra and to operator theory,
and in celebration of his 70th birthday on January 17, 2005.
Heydar's early results include his seminal characterization of
self-commutators of operators on Hilbert space. His definitive trace
condition for simultaneous triangularizability of semigroups of matrices
was the culmination of work on this topic by several generations of
distinguished algebraists. Heydar has obtained numerous other results of
broad interest on invariant subspaces, simultaneous triangularizability,
products of involutions, semigroups of matrices and many other topics. As
he approaches 70, his research productivity is increasing with his age.
It is hoped that this special issue will reflect the breadth and
influence of his research.
Papers on any aspect of linear algebra or operator theory may be
submitted to any of the four special editors listed below before July 31,
2003. Submissions will be subject to the normal refereeing procedures and
standards of LAA.

Aims and Scope

Computational Management Science (CMS) is an international journal
focusing on all computational aspects of management science. As such, it
provides a publishing outlet for novel research results, and occasional
surveys, in computational methods, models and empirical analysis for
decision making in management, engineering, economics and finance. These
include theoretical and empirical analysis of computational models;
computational statistics; analysis and applications of constrained and
unconstrained optimisation algorithms; dynamic models, such as dynamic
programming and decision trees; new search tools and algorithms for global
optimisation, modelling, learning and forecasting such as neural networks
and genetic algorithms; models and tools of knowledge acquisition, such as
data mining and data warehousing.

CMS covers applications and models, as well as algorithms. It has a wide
scope, intending to provide a unified forum for research often scattered
in specialised areas. The aim is to aid researchers, as well as authors of
papers, spanning algorithms and applications. CMS welcomes development and
analysis of applicable algorithms, computational models and experience,
and balanced sets of applications. It is always open to new computational


The refereeing process of the journal is based on the widely accepted
rigorous standards of scientific publications and is intended to be fast.
The journal will appear four times a year. For further information

Subject: Workshop at UCLA IPAM on Alternative Computing

Workshop on "Alternative Computing" :

As part of its semester program on Mathematics in Nanoscale Science and
Engineering, The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is
pleased to announce a workshop on "Alternative Computing" which will run
from September 30 - October 3, 2002. The program will take place at the
IPAM building on the campus of UCLA in Los Angeles. The program is
organized by Russel Caflisch, Chair (UCLA) James Heath (UCLA), and
Vwani P. Roychowdhury (UCLA).

Scientific Content: The limits of Moore's law are clearly on the
horizon, and there are a number of current proposals for future
computing models, each of which would represent a major breakthrough.
These include quantum computing, biological computing, molecular
computing, and neural nets. Each of these has some very promising
features in terms of speed, complexity and efficiency, but there remain
a number of unresolved issues involving input/output, fault tolerance
and algorithm development that are required in order to implement these
models. This workshop will bring together experts representing a wide
range of scientific viewpoints on alternative computing models. The aim
of the workshop is to promote research on alternative computing, to
stimulate interactions among individuals working on different approaches
to alternative computing, and to help bring the open problems in this
field to the attention of mathematicians and nanosystem researchers.

Subject: Conference at WIAS on Challenges in Scientific Computing

Dear Colleagues,

On Oct. 2-5, 2002, at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis
and Stochastic, Berlin, Germany, a conference on

"Challenges in Scientfic Computing"

will take place.

The main focus of the conference is on the problem class of nonlinear
transport/diffusion/reaction systems, chief amongst these being: the
Navier-Stokes equations, porous media-flow problems and
semiconductor-device equations.

Of particular interest are those contributions which emphasise
unsolved problems, challenging open questions from applications and
assessing the various numerical methods used to handle them, instead
of concentrating on accurate results from `solved' problems.

An important goal of the conference is to examine, to discuss, and to
raise the overall awareness of a broad range of topical issues
stemming from the fields of scientific computing and numerical
analysis. These include:

* handling of multispecies/multiphysics systems
* discretisation methods
* treatment of nonlinearity
* mesh generation and adaptivity
* fast, direct and iterative solvers for linear algebraic problems
* design of numerically efficient, but flexible, software components
* portable parallelisation

For comprehensive information, we kindly invite you to look up the
conference homepage at
