**Subject: Origin of name "Hilbert Matrix"**

A colleague, Grady Wright, asked me this one, which stumped both

of our google searches, so I thought I'd ask NA-Digest.

Did Hilbert first define it, or was it named for him for other reasons?

Best regards,

Bob Palais

**Subject: Zhong-ci Shi Wins Hua Loo-keng Prize**

Professor Zhong-ci Shi of Institute of Computational Mathematics of

Chinese Academy of Sciences was awarded the sixth Hua Loo-keng

Prize in Mathematics in the ninth National Congress of Chinese

Mathematical Society on October 31, 2003 in Wuhan, China. He is recognized

by his systematic and profound research in computational mathematics, in

particular his contributions in conforming and nonconforming finite element

methods. He is also recognized by his leadships in the development of modern

computational mathematics research in China.

The Hua Loo-keng Prize in Mathematics is the highest honor in Chinese

mathematical community. It was founded by Chinese Mathematical Society in

1992 to memorize the great mathematician, the late Professor Hua Luo-keng

(1910-1985).

Congratulations, Professor Shi!

**Subject: Wanted: Solution for a Simple Riccati Equation**

Hi,

I am looking for a solution to the following Simple Riccati Equation

X A X = B

where A and B are n by n SPD matrices, AB may not equal BA and the

solution X should be SPD as well.

Is there a closed form solution for 2x2 and 3x3 matrices? Or is

there a simple numerical solution?

Much appreciate any help.

SCOPE

The objective of the workshop is to bring together specialists

in the field of control of time-delay systems. High level contributions

on the many aspects of this research area, ranging from theory

over numerics to various applications, are awaited. Contributions on

related domains (e.g. control of uncertain systems, 2D and nD systems,

tele-operated control systems) will be considered with great interest,

provided they contain relations with time-delay systems.

In order to provide a joint forum for and create interaction between

specialists in control and numerical mathematics, and to increase

industrial participation, special attention will be paid to:

- Numerical methods for time-delay systems

- Applications, emphasizing delay effects in

telecommunication systems

and Control Problems in Adaptive Optics

(www.ipam.ucla.edu/programs/ao2004 January 22-24, 2004).

This workshop on Mathematical Challenges in Astronomical Imaging will

focus on novel mathematical techniques in image reconstruction and image

analysis. New approaches to deconvolution will be explored, with

emphases on developments in multiscale, Bayesian, and wavelet methods,

on the varieties of point spread functions that characterize modern

astronomical instrumentation and on the constraints presented by

astronomical images. The goal of this workshop is to bring scientists

from the astronomical community together with mathematicians to explore

these issues.

Applications are invited for three anticipated tenure-track positions in the

Department of Mathematics, effective August 2004. The positions, subject

to budgetary approval, are initially budgeted at the assistant professor level,

but candidates with proven research record may be considered at the

associate professor level. For assistant professorships, we seek strong

research potential and evidence of excellence in teaching. Research

productivity beyond the doctoral dissertation will normally be expected.

For associate professorships, applicants should have a good research

reputation and established research program, including success in securing

external funding, publication and supervision of graduate students.

Assistant professorships in computational biomathematics: While applicants

in all areas of computational biomathematics will be considered, those whose

research expertise and interests lie in one or more of the following areas

will be given preference: bioinformatics; computational genomics; Monte Carlo

and molecular dynamics simulations; biological and biomedical system

modeling; and biomedical signal and image processing.

Assistant professorship in mathematics: This position is open to any area of

mathematics; however, those whose research expertise and interests are in the

following areas will be given preference: educational technology development,

evaluation and implementation; information and data management; and

mathematics teaching and learning methodology research and experimentation.

Assistant professorship in applied mathematics: This position is open to any

area of applied mathematics; however, those whose research expertise and

interests are in one or more of the following areas will be given preference:

digital signal and image processing; statistical signal and array processing;

multidimensional signal processing; and mathematical neuroscience.

The successful applicants for all three positions will be expected to teach at

both undergraduate and graduate level, conduct research, advise students, write

grant proposals, collaborate with other faculty in the Department of Mathematics

and the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition, the successful applicant for

the general mathematics position is expected to coordinate instructional and

research activities in educational technology development and evaluation, and

information and data management. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in the

mathematical sciences or mathematically intensive field of a related discipline.

Applications will be reviewed beginning January 15, 2004, and the review will

continue until the positions are filled. Applicants should arrange to have a

curriculum vitae; three letters of recommendation; transcripts; a statement of

scientific or educational research expertise and interests; a statement of

teaching philosophy; abstracts of completed research (articles, software tools,

multimedia modules, funded projects and etc.); and future research plan sent to:

**Subject: Research Position at University of Chicago**

We are seeking someone with a Ph D in Mathematics with

experience in protein-protein interaction, dna-dna binding,

numerical solution of partial differential equations and modern

methods for machine learning (support-vector machines, boosting,

decision trees, neural networks). Programming experience

sufficient to implment the corresponding software is

necessary.

The employee will be a Research Associate in Computer Science,

funded by the Institute for Biophysical Dynamics. Salary will be

competitive and depend on qualifications. There will be funds

to travel to at least one meeting. The term of the appointment

will be at least one year, possibly renewable depending on

availability of funding.

The research to be done combines physical chemistry and

proteomics in a novel way, and applies it to biomedical

questions. The concept of dehydron will be explored in detail

by further statistical analysis of protein databases and

existing experiments. Mutations that correlate dehydrons with

disease (such as cancer) will be explored. Implications for

protein folding will be studied.

For more information on background research, see the papers

120-124 on the web site

http://people.cs.uchicago.edu/~ridg/lrsbib.html

No wet-lab experience is required, and there will be no

exposure to experiments with animals.

Applicants should send a CV and list of publications, and
