**Subject: The NEOS Server for Optimization, Recent Developments**

A new milestone was reached by the NEOS Server when it processed

almost 17,000 jobs during the month of May. This is possible due to

numerous improvements in Version 4 (released May, 2001) of the NEOS

Server. The number of jobs received seems to be ever-increasing

with the number of submissions over the last three months being

March 12,231

April 11,863

May 16,899

In the same vein note that the NEOS Server processed nearly 80,000 job

submissions in 2002 with over 13,000 submissions to our new Kestrel

service from within the AMPL or GAMS modeling environments.

Recent developments associated with Version 4 are described

in the paper "Optimization on the NEOS Server", by

E. Dolan, R. Fourer, J. More', T. Munson, that appeared in

SIAM News (volume 35, #6, 2002). You can get a copy at

www.siam.org/siamnews/07-02/neos.pdf

Other items of interest are:

There is a "view current job queues" link on the homepage.

This is always fun to watch.

There is also a "check job progress" by number and password.

This is helpful as the number of jobs increases.

Hans Mittelmann has introduced Semi-infinite Optimization

in the form of Ismael Vaz' NSIPS.

We now have a special Benchmark solver under the Multi-solvers

category for both AMPL and GAMS input. Benchmark ensures that the

solvers selected process your job on the same machine for more

realistic comparison. The Web pages for Benchmark contain more details.

We are experimenting with application specific optimization solvers.

Our first offering under the Application Specific category is

SQMeshOpt, a global optimizer of 2- and 3-dimensional meshes.

Our thanks go out to everyone collaborating on the NEOS project and

all of the users who have written to us with feedback. We can always

use more feedback. We want/need to know how NEOS is being used.

A special note of thanks go to Liz Dolan, who has served as the NEOS

Server administrator since August 1999. Liz will be going to graduate

school with a prestigious fellowship to study graphics at the

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Under her care, NEOS has

matured and grown into a world-class research project, including

selection as one of the top ten (2000) scientific accomplishment by

the DOE Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research.

Jason Sarich (sarich@mcs.anl.gov) has agreed to take on the NEOS

Server administrator position. Jason's skills are in demand, so we are

delighted that he decided to take on this additional responsibility.

Jorge More' for the NEOS Group

The NEOS Server is a project of the Optimization Technology Center,

managed by Argonne National Laboratory and Northwestern University.

**Subject: Searching for an Optimization Book**

Hello NA Digest community,

Claremont Graduate University is offering a course next semester in

numerical optimization. I am currently in search of a good book or pair of

books for the class. I would like the class to cover more modern approaches

like the trust region method, integer programming and focus more on

constraint problems. Any references, suggestions or leads would be greatly

appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

**Subject: New Book on Random Number Generation**

Random Number Generation, Second Edition

James E. Gentle

2003, $79.95, 400 pages , 6 1/8 x 9 , 54 illus., hardcover, ISBN:

0-387-00178-6

This book surveys techniques of random number generation and the use of

random numbers in Monte Carlo simulation. The book covers basic principles,

as well as newer methods such as parallel random number generation,

nonlinear congruential generators, quasi-Monte Carlo methods, and Markov

chain Monte Carlo. The best methods for generating random variates from the

standard distributions are presented, but also general techniques useful in

more complicated models and in novel settings are described. The emphasis

throughout the book is on practical methods that work well in current

computing environments.

This book could serve as the primary text for a specialized course in

statistical computing, or as a supplementary text for a course in

computational statistics and other areas of modern statistics that rely on

simulation. The book, which covers recent developments in the field, could

also serve as a useful reference for researchers and practitioners.

The second edition is approximately 50% longer than the first edition. It

includes advances in methods for parallel random number generation,

universal methods for generation of nonuniform variates, perfect sampling,

and software for random number generation. The material on testing of random

number generators has been expanded to include a discussion of newer

software for testing, as well as more discussion about the tests themselves.

This edition has more discussion of applications of Monte Carlo methods in

various fields, including physics and computational finance.

Contents:
