**Subject: Rank-one Modification of Real Nonsymmetric Matrices**

Dear NA Digest readers,

Given a real nonsymmetric matrix A and a second matrix B which

is a rank-one (or even higher) modification of the original matrix A.

Is there any relationship between the eigenvalues of A and B ?

I am looking into ways on how to find a suitable starting matrix

for a homotopy method applied to nonsymmetric matrices.

Does anyone know of any references for this problem ?

Thanks in advance.

**Subject: Charles University Library**

Dear Colleagues,

I am including below a call for assistance for the library of the Faculty of

Mathematics and Physics at Charles University, which was severely damaged by the

recent floods. I encourage you to consider: (1) any personal donations that you,

or your colleagues, can make, and (2) asking your home institution to provide

support.

I am visiting Charles University this semester, and the damage to the library,

and the rest of the Karlin district, is immense. While photographs don't really

do justice to the situation, some pictures and additional information are

available at: http://stoprog.org

Sincerely,

David Morton

Czech Republic, and Prague in particular, was heavily hit by recent floods.

The largest Czech mathematical library was located in the building of the

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University at Karlin, the most

damaged part of Prague. It contained books and journals from all fields of pure

and applied mathematics, statistics, numerical analysis and computer science.

About two thirds of books and journals in the library were heavily damaged and,

despite all efforts, are almost surely lost. Among them were five thousands of

books and monographs from recent decades, almost 400 titles of journals; there

were also thousands of historical books from the last three centuries, which

cannot be bought any more (including, e.g., the first edition of collected works

of Cauchy, Weierstrass and Riemann). Taking into account that the whole country

was extensively damaged by the flood, we must expect that to collect money

needed for the reconstruction of the library will be very difficult. While we

can recover texts needed for undergraduate study, we are not able to buy again

books needed for graduate and postgraduate students as well as books and

journals needed for research.

In our difficult situation, we would like to ask you for help. If you are

in a position to provide us assistance, a donation of extra copies of books and

journals would be an immense assistance for us. In order to make a donation of

books or journals, please contact Marketa Jirickova via:

MARKETA.JIRICKOVA@MFF.CUNI.CZ

It is also possible to make a financial contribution to the renewal of the

library, which is a particularly efficient way to help to recover exactly what

we need. Money can be sent either by a check payable to

Charles University in Praha, Karlin Library

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics

Hospodarske odd.

Ke Karlovu 3

121 16 Praha 2

Czech Republic

or by a money transfer to the following account:

CSOB, Prague 1, Na Porici 24

account No. 01256280/0300

Our reference: 999

SWIFT: CEKO CZ PP PRA

In order to minimize shipping costs regional centers have been developed to

collect books and journals. For example, there are six centers in the US, and

there is free shipping (via CSA, Czech Airlines) from these centers to Prague.

There is a regional center in Germany, and others may develop as needed. For

details again see http://stoprog.org

Gifts of books or money contributions are free of tax in the Czech Republic

in case we have a letter declaring that the gift was sent to help the library of

the faculty.

Any help from your side would be very welcome and highly appreciated.

**Subject: Republished Books, Lanczos Algorithms**

Dear NA Community:

Lanczos Algorithms for Large 'Symmetric'

Eigenvalue Computations. Volumes 1 and 2

As announced by SIAM this month, Volume 1: Theory: of the

two-volume book, Lanczos Algorithms for Large Symmetric

Eigenvalue Computations, by Jane K. Cullum and Ralph A.

Willoughby, has been republished by SIAM as Volume 41 in

the SIAM Series, Classics in Applied Mathematics. It is

available for purchase from SIAM as ISBN 0-89871-523-7.

This book was originally published by Birkhauser in 1985.

Volume 2: Programs: is now available 'for free' on NetLib

at the following URL:

http://www.netlib.org/lanczos/

Volume 2 contains the documentation for and the listings

of the original Fortran implementations of the algorithms

which are described in Volume 1. The following types of

algorithms are included:

1. Real Symmetric

2. Hermitian

3. Factored Inverse, Real Symmetric

4. Generalized Real Symmetric

5. Complex Symmetric

6. Singular Value/Vector

There are also Block Lanczos algorithms for Real Symmetric

and for Factored Inverse, Real Symmetric Problems.

Volume 2 can be downloaded either in full or in pieces,

by Chapter. The original versions of the codes which

are listed in Volume 2 but which are not already included

in the 'lanczos' section of the NetLib repository will be

added shortly. The web version of Volume 2 also contains

a short Errata for Volume 1.

This summer, Leonard Hoffnung (Math. Dept, U. Kentucky),

Spencer Shellman, (Comp. Sc. Dept, U. Utah) and I have

been working on Fortran90 uni-processor and MPI parallel

versions of some of the codes which are listed in

Volume 2. This work will continue at a slower pace.

The contributions of Hoffnung and Shellman have been

supported by a U.S. Department of Energy, Office of

Science, ASCR, MICS, Los Alamos Applied Mathematical

Sciences Program grant.

Much work remains to be done on these codes. As we

complete each code and the related documentation, it

will be added to the 'lanczos' subdirectory in NetLib.

**Subject: New Book, Front Tracking for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws**

Springer-Verlag is pleased to announce the publication of Front Tracking

for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws by Helge Holden and Nils Henrik

Riseboro in our Applied Mathematics Sciences series. Hyperbolic

conservation laws are central in the theory of nonlinear partial

differential equations, and in many applications in science and

technology. In this book the reader is given a detailed, rigorous, and

self-contained presentation of the theory of hyperbolic conservation

laws from the basic theory up to the research front. The approach is

constructive, and the mathematical approach using front tracking can be

applied directly as a numerical method. After a short introduction on

the fundamental properties of conservation laws, the theory of scalar

conservation laws in one dimension is treated in detail, showing the

stability of the Cauchy problem using front tracking. The extension to

multidimensional scalar conservation laws is obtained using dimensional

splitting. Inhomogeneous equations and equations with diffusive terms

are included as well as a discussion of convergence rates. The classical

theory of Kruzkov and Kuznetsov is covered. Systems of conservation laws

in one dimension are treated in detail, starting with the solution of

the Riemann problem. Solutions of the Cauchy problem are proved to exist

in a constructive manner using front tracking, amenable to numerical

computations. The book includes a detailed discussion of the very recent

proof of wellposedness of the Cauchy problem for one-dimensional

hyperbolic conservation laws. The book includes a chapter on traditional

finite difference methods for hyperbolic conservation laws with error

estimates and a section on measure valued solutions. Extensive examples

are given, and many exercises are included with hints and answers.

Additional background material not easily available elsewhere is given

in appendices. For more information, please see

The first workshop on Model Reduction was held at the Eindhoven

University of Technology on 8-9 October 2001.

Model reduction is a topic which receives growing attention, both in the

mathematics community and in various application areas, such as electronics,

cardiovascular, electromagnetic, environment, fluid-dynamics and naval.

The common denominator are the mathematical techniques for model reduction,

both on the algebraic and operator level, i.e. coupling among differential

models characterized by different complexity.

The programme also covers wide area of model reduction, i.e., techniques for

PDEs, FEM, FVM and for ODEs such as algebraic techniques for effective

preconditioning.
