Subject: EIGIFP, A Program for Eigenvalue Computations

This is to announce public distributions of EIGIFP, a program to compute
a few extreme eigenvalues of the large matrix eigenvalue problems:
A x = lambda x or A x = lambda B x
where A, B are symmetric and B > 0. The program uses incomplete
factorizations to precondition an eigenvalue problem for a Krylov
subspace method and is particularly suitable for problems where
factorization of B (i.e. inverting B) or factorization of a shifted
matrix (i.e. shift-and-invert) is difficult. It is based on the
algorithm in G. Golub and Q. Ye, An Inverse Free Preconditioned Krylov
Subspace Method for Symmetric Generalized Eigenvalue Problems, SIAM J.
Scient. Comput., 24:312-334. To download the program, please visit:

Subject: NFFT, Nonequispaced Discrete Fourier Transform

Dear colleagues:

we are pleased to announce the availability of Version 1.0 of a
C library for computing the Nonequispaced Discrete Fourier Transform
(NDFT) in one, two or three dimensions.
Other common names for NFFT are non-uniform fast Fourier transform
(NUFFT), generalized fast Fourier transform (GFFT),
unequally-spaced fast Fourier transform (USFFT),
non-equispaced fast Fourier transform (NFFT), or gridding.

Our library is free software based on FFTW.

Visit our NFFT web-page

for software, documentation, and related links.

Subject: SIAM Student Paper Prizes

The 2003 SIAM Student Paper Prizes will be presented at the First
Joint Meeting of CAIMS and SIAM, June 16-20, at the Queen
Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada. This meeting also will serve
as SIAM's 2003 Annual Meeting.

Principal Guidelines

The SIAM Student Paper Prizes are awarded every year to the
student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) submitted
to the SIAM Student Paper Competition. This award is based
solely on the merit and content of the student's
contribution to submitted paper.

The purpose of the Student Paper Prizes is to recognize
outstanding scholarship by students in applied mathematics
or computing.

Selection Procedures

Eligibility is restricted to students in good standing who
have not received their Ph.D. at the time of submitting
their entry or who have completed their degree within one
year of submission of their entry.

Submissions may be based on co-authored papers, provided
that the student's advisor will attest that the student's
work played a pivotal role in the results. A letter from
the student's advisor or department chair must accompany
each entry to verify these conditions.

To enter the competition, a student must submit: (1) an
extended abstract in English of a paper, and (2) a short
biography. The total length of the submitted abstract
(including bibliography) may not exceed five pages. The
student also must submit the complete paper, which will be
used for clarification of any questions the selection
committee may have on the extended abstract. In addition,
the student's advisor or an interested faculty member must
submit a letter describing and evaluating the paper's
contribution to the literature, and the student's role in
the scholarship.

For the 2003 award, all papers and accompanying
documentation must be received at the SIAM office by
February 16, 2003.

Each recipient is required to present his or her paper at
the meeting where the prizes are awarded; if attending
the meeting poses a serious hardship, an exception may be
granted by the SIAM president.

Description of the Award

Each recipient of the SIAM Student Paper Prize shall receive
a framed certificate and a cash award of $1,000, plus $500 toward
travel expenses.

Please direct your submission and any questions you may have to

Subject: New Book, Lyapunov-Schmidt Methods

Lyapunov-Schmidt Methods in Nonlinear Analysis and Applications

by Nikolay Sidorov
Dept. of Mathematical Analysis, Irkutsk State University, Russia
Boris Loginov
Ulyanovosk State Technical University, Russia
Aleksandr Sinitsyn,
Michail Falaleev
Dept. of Mathematical Analysis, Irkutsk State University, Russia

This book concentrates on the branching solutions of nonlinear operator
equations and the theory of degenerate operator-differential equations
especially applicable to algorithmic analysis and nonlinear PDE's in
mechanics and mathematical physics.

The authors expound the recent result on the generalized eigen-value
problem, the perturbation method, Schmidt's pseudo-inversion for
regularization of linear and nonlinear problems in the branching theory and
group methods in bifurcation theory. The book covers regular iterative
methods in a neighborhood of branch points and the theory of
differential-operator equations with a non-invertible operator in the main
expression is constructed. Various recent results on theorems of existence
are given including asymptotic, approximate and group methods.

The reduction of some mathematics, physics and mechanics problems
(capillary-gravity surface wave theory, phase transitions theory,
Andronov-Hopf bifurcation, boundary-value problems for the Vlasov-Maxwell
system, filtration, magnetic insulation) to operator equations gives rich
opportunities for creation and application of stated common methods for
which existence theorems and the bifurcation of solutions for these
applications are investigated.

Audience: The book will be of interest to mathematicians, mechanics,
physicists and engineers interested in nonlinear equations and applications
to nonlinear and singular systems as well as to researchers and students of
these topics.

Subject: Conference in Montreal on Computational Science

ICCSA 2003
Montreal, Canada
May 18, 2003 -- May 21, 2003

The 2003 International Conference on Computational Science and Its
Applications (ICCSA 2003) will be held at the Delta Centreville Hotel,
Montreal, Canada, from May 18, 2003 till May 21, 2003.

ICCSA 2003 is subsequent to the International Conference on
Computational Science (ICCS) series of events, which were held in San
Francisco, USA (2001) and Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2002).

Computational Science is increasingly becoming a vital part of many
scientific investigations, affecting researchers and practitioners in
areas ranging from aerospace and automotive, to chemistry,
electronics, geosciences, to mathematics, and physics.

Due to the shear size of many challenges in computational science, the
use of supercomputing, parallel processing, and sophisticated
algorithms, is inevitable.

The concentration of this Conference is in the realms of computational
science in parallel and distributed environments, encompassing the
facilitating theoretical foundations and the applications of such
large scale computations.

The Conference offers the opportunity to discuss problems and
solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future
directions for research, as well as to help industrial users apply
techniques of large scale parallel and distributed computations.

We invite you to submit a:
o full paper of 6 to 10 pages (Letter or A4 paper) for oral
o proposal to organize a technical session.

Submitted papers have to be original, containing new results that were
not previously published. Full version of accepted papers will appear
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS),
Springer-Verlag. A selected number of papers will be published as
special issues in appropriate journals.
