Subject: Gerschgorin References

Dear Sir/Madam

I am a fourth year student studying at the University of Glasgow. I'm doing
a project this year titled "Some Inequalities for Eigenvalues, determinants
and matrix entries". There is a lot of emphasis on Gerschgorins Theorem
I was wondering if you could provide any information about Gerschgorins
work and life and if you have any links of the papers he compiled. Any
information would be very much appreciated.

Yours Sincerely,
Steven Gall.

Subject: Year of Numerical Analysis at the University of Auckland

Programme in Numerical Analysis at the University of Auckland

The newly formed New Zealand Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
has awarded me funding for a one year programme in numerical analysis.
A key component of this activity will be the ANODE 2003 workshop scheduled
for 14-18 July 2003, and the additional funding will make it possible to
extend the scope of this workshop in various ways. Visitors who are
interested in the subjects of the workshop (numerical methods for
differential equations, time dependent partial differential equations,
Volterra integral equations, geometric integration,
differential-algebraic equations), will be catered for at various
times of the year, especially immediately before and immediately after
the ANODE dates. There will be some money available to assist
visitors, at least with local expenses, who wish to spend an extended
period in Auckland. These funds are limited and first priority will be to
mathematicians who otherwise would not financially be able to take part.
There are also funds available to support a one-year postdoctoral position
in Auckland. For this position, some sort of compatibility with
the exisiting interests of the Auckland group would be an advantage.

If you are interested in exploring a visit to Auckland I invite you to
contact me. This applies in particular to the postdoctoral fellowship.

May 23-24-25-26, 2003
Anglia Polytechnic University (APU), Cambridge, UK

The multidisciplinary field of Numerical Analysis and Computational
Mathematics is long suffering from major delays in the publication of
original papers. In most cases it takes at least 2 to 3 years for a
paper to be accepted and the situation seems to get worse by the year.
The NACoM-2003 will address this problem, as follows:
1) This first time the NACoM Conference will serve as the medium for the
Generally, in ANACM it is expected that the time between a paper
submission and its acceptance for publication to be around 6 months.
ANACM will be registered with the ISI CITATION INDEX without delay.
2) The NACoM-2003 Conference is expected to attract very high quality
papers and a refereed selection of them will be published in the two
special issues of the new journal.
3) This will be an excellent opportunity to MEET IN PERSON members of
the ANACM EDITORIAL BOARD. Furthermore, high-ranking representatives
from Wiley-Europe will be present and will address the participants.

Andrew Wendelborn and Paul Coddington
(University of Adelaide)


The Java programming language is widely used for commercial
applications and in teaching programming, but its uptake in scientific
computing has been limited.

Advantages of Java include portability, modern object-oriented
technology, and in-built support for thread parallelism, although
there is a perception that it lacks performance relative to other

The purpose of this workshop is to enable, firstly, computational
scientists to report experiences in using Java for computational
science and high-performance computing, and secondly, researchers in
high-performance Java to share recent advances with the computational
science community. Topics will include applications, performance and
benchmarking, parallel computing, and supporting technologies.


This is a general call for papers about Java in Computational
Science. We invite papers involving the use of Java in developing and
supporting scientific applications. In addition, papers related to
advances in supporting technologies, such as Java compiler techniques
for high-performance computing, will be of interest.

Topics of interest for this workshop include but are not limited to:
o High-performance computing applications using Java;
o Performance issues and benchmarking;
o Advances in parallel and distributed programming using Java;
o Java tools in scientific applications (portals etc);
o Advances in Java technologies supporting HPC;
o Optimisation technologies;
o Problem Solving Environments;
o Visualization.


The two principal deadlines are:
13th December 2002: notify title and abstract to co-chairs
24th December 2002: submission of final paper.

Subject: PhD Studentship at Brunel University

(Ref: IDA) PhD Studentship in Bioinformatics
It is widely believed that gene expression data contains rich information
that could discover the higher-order structures of an organism and even
interpret its behaviour. Biologists are expecting powerful computational
tools to extract functional information from the data, which are highly
dynamic. Therefore, the key objective of this interdisciplinary project is
to apply dynamic system theory in modelling and filtering for gene expression.

Applicants must have (or hope to get) a First or Upper Second Class Degree
or Masters Degree (preferred) in the areas of computer science, mathematics,
statistics, biology, electrical engineering, or related subject area.
Practical knowledge of control theory, stochastic analysis or biology would
clearly be an asset. The successful candidate will join the Intelligent Data
Analysis (IDA) research group.

Informal enquiries about the position may be made to Dr. Zidong Wang either
by e-mail ( or phone (01895-274000x3492)

Application Details

Applications are invited for these two three-year, fully funded PhD posts
(suitable for any UK/EU citizen). The studentship will be funded at the
normal rate (full home student fees + =A39250 per year living expenses), with
the opportunity of undertaking additional paid undergraduate teaching. The
start date will be 18/2/03 but is negotiable.
