**Subject: Norms of Matrix Functionals**

Hi Nanet,

I have a linear algebra question. Take the m by n real matrices as

a normed vector space with any Holder norm, and consider the linear

functionals defined on this space. Is there a formula for the induced

norm on the space of functionals? I would be happy with just the

case when the original norm is spectral.

Thanks, -- Joe

**Subject: Postdoctoral Position at Institut Francais du Petrole**

POST-DOCTORAL position in optimization at the Institut Francais du

Petrole (IFP), Paris, France.

Large scale nonlinear optimization problems subject to nonlinear

constraints with applications in geosciences.

The inverse problems encountered in geosciences (seismic tomography,

characterisation of reservoirs with production data, 4D seismic,

stratigraphic inversion...) often require to solve a large scale

nonlinear problem subject to nonlinear constraints. For problems with

linear constraints, a Sequential Quadratic Programming approach in

which the QP's are solved by an augmented Lagrangian method has been

developed and proven to be very efficient. The subject of the postdoc

is the extension of this approach to nonlinear constraints. This

requires an adapted globalisation method, for instance via a trust

region technique. A special care of the impact of the approximated

solution of the QP for fixed multipliers should be taken. An Interior

Point approach coupled with a trust-region method could be an

interesting alternative.

Profile of the candidate:

PhD in applied mathematics, with interest, motivation and background in

nonlinear optimization and convex analysis Good knowledge in C and

Fortran Less than 35 years old, from eastern-western European countries

(ex-USSR excluded). Good working knowledge of the French or English

language is essential.

Location:

Institut Francais du Petrole (IFP, http://www.ifp.fr). Part of the

post-doc may take place at INRIA (http://www.inria.fr, collaboration

with Jean-Charles Gilbert:

http://www-rocq.inria.fr/~gilbert/mypage.html). Both research

institutes are situated at about 10 kilometers from Paris and offer

excellent working conditions in a lively research environment.

Start: as soon as possible.

Duration: 1 year.

Salary: 2250 euros (taxes excluded).

Interested candidates are encouraged to send an application with c.v.
