**Subject: Version 2 of EIGIFP, A Program for Eigenvalue Computations**

This is to announce that a new version of EIGIFP is available for

download now. EIGIFP is a MATLAB 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 and is

particularly suitable for problems where factorization of B or

shift-and-invert is difficult. Some algorithmic improvements have

been included in this version. A documentation is also available

now. To download the program, please visit:

**Subject: New Fortran Standard Coming Soon**

A revision of the Fortran standard, to be known informally as Fortran

2003, is nearing publication. This is a substantial revision -- much

larger than the 1995 revision, but not as large as the 1990 revision.

John Reid has written an excellent summary of the changes, which is

available at ftp://ftp.nag.co.uk/sc22wg5/N1551-N1600/N1579.pdf or

ftp://ftp.nag.co.uk/sc22wg5/N1551-N1600/N1579.ps.gz (file sizes 101Kb

and 59Kb respectively)

The major additions are Object-Oriented Programming and Interoperability

with C, but N1579 is 38 pages, and its table of contents is more than

one page. Minor additions include procedure pointers, finalization of

derived-type objects, parameterized derived types, pointer rank remapping

(allows viewing one-dimensional arrays as higher-dimensional arrays),

enumerations, the ASSOCIATE construct (similar to Pascal's WITH),

transferring an allocation (generalization of the frequently-requested

reallocate capability), VOLATILE attribute, access to the command line

and environment variables, standard named constants for "*" input and

output units, access to message text for input/output and other errors,

access to features of the IEEE floating-point arithmetic standard, longer

names and statements, generalization of expressions for array dimensions

and initial values, user-defined derived-type input/output, asynchronous

input/output, and stream input/output -- and this list is not exhaustive.

Those interested to study the proposed standard in detail can find it

at http://webstore.ansi.org/ansidocstore/default.asp. Search for

1539-1 and get "ISO/IEC FCD 1539-1" (FCD means Final Committee Draft).

This publication is available at no cost. It is also available from

http://www.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc22/open/n3661.pdf (4.0Mb), and from

ftp://ftp.j3-fortran.org/j3/doc/standing/007/ in compressed pdf (2.2

MB), postscript (1.0 MB) and plain text (394 KB) formats.

A period of public comment has been announced concerning this document.

Comments about typographical errors, poor exposition, and inconsistencies

are especially welcome. Technical comments are allowed, but at this

stage in the process it is unlikely that substantial technical changes

will be undertaken, as this would delay publication for at least 18

months.

If commentors who are residents of the United States or who represent

U.S.-domiciled corporations wish their comments to be officially

registered they should ne sent to Deborah J. Spittle at dspittle _at_

itic.org and to PSA Dept. at psa _at _ansi.org no later than 15 December

2003.

Commentors in UK should send their comments to David Muxworthy at

please send comments to one of the published Fortran contact addresses.

It is more important that Fortran users worldwide make their views known

than they are prevented from doing so by bureaucracy.

The theme of this conference is methods and algorithms for reconstructing

images of a physical system or object from remotely-sensed data, in which

the data are incomplete (in the sense that they do not, by themselves,

allow a direct computation of a high-fidelity image). It is therefore

necessary to incorporate other information or constraints to obtain a

useful solution. The design of effective and efficient algorithms for

using the different kinds of available data and constraints to obtain a

solution is of primary importance in these kinds of problems. In many,

although not all, of these problems the data are related to a wavefield

that carries information concerning the object, i.e. they often involve

scattering or diffraction. Example technical areas include phase

retrieval, deconvolution, inverse scattering, regularization, and imaging

through turbulence. Example application areas include radar imaging,

medical imaging (ultrasonic, x-ray CT, MRI, optical diffusion and optical

coherence, etc.), laser imaging, optical and radio astronomy, microscopy,

crystallography, geophysical imaging (atmospheric profiling, ocean

acoustic, seismic, etc.), and signal design. The applications and methods

used are diverse, and we invite contributions from researchers in any

discipline who make use of these kind of techniques.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

phase retrieval superresolution and deconvolution

image and system modeling and regularization

probabilistic and Bayesian methods for inverse problems

optimization methods for image recovery

matched filtering

sampling and aliasing

computationally efficient algorithms

wavefield propagation

radar and inverse scattering

imaging of, or through, turbulent, refracting, or highly scattering media

profile inversion

applications in remote sensing, medicine, biology, geophysics, etc.

For those who are interested, various real data sets are available for

evaluating inverse scattering and phase retrieval algorithms.

**Subject: Fellowships in Nonlinear Systems at Cornell**

The Cornell IGERT Program in Nonlinear Systems has received renewed

funding from the NSF. We anticipate awarding 8-12 two year fellowships

for students who will begin the Program in the Fall of 2004. Fellowship

stipends will be $27,500 for a twelve month period. NSF fellowship

support is restricted to US citizens or permanent residents.

The Nonlinear Systems Program is designed to foster research broadly

on nonlinear systems that combines theory, computation and empirical

data. Four thematic areas will be emphasized:

1. Complex Networks:

We are exploring such topics as the World Wide Web, populations with

hidden structure (e.g., the network of injection drug users in a major

city), the resilience of ecosystems composed of hundreds of interacting

species and mathematical patterns in the statistics of forest fires,

earthquakes, and blackouts.

2. Machines and Organisms - Locomotion and Manipulation:

We view organisms as part of a continuum of solutions to the mechanical

challenges of locomotion, flight and manipulation. Comparing and

contrasting moving machines and organisms enables us to understand

both better.

3. Biological Pattern Formation:

We are using theoretical models, novel visualization and data analysis

techniques to study the dynamics of spatially extended systems in terms

of defect structures and patterns such as scroll waves. We seek an

understanding of complex phenomena like cell migration and heart rhythm

disorders that involve a large number of dynamical degrees of freedom.

4. Gene Regulation and Systems Biology:

Through the use of theoretical models and large-scale computation, and

leveraging the enormous experimental investment by the biology

community,

we plan to develop biologically useful theories of large subsystems

of cellular function, specifically in the areas of gene regulation,

manufacture of RNA and proteins, and cell signaling.

Program requirements consist of two courses in nonlinear dynamics

and computational methods, a year-long interdisciplinary project,

participation in an IGERT seminar, a summer internship and completion

of a Ph.D. minor.

Applications are coordinated through participating graduate fields at

Cornell. Applicants should describe their interest in the IGERT program

as part of the statement of purpose in their Cornell graduate school

application. They should also complete the contact form on the web site

http://www.chaos.cornell.edu/
