Subject: Delaunay Triangulation

Dear Colleagues,
Do you know of any algorithm which would perform Delaunay triangulation for
high dimension (say d=50) and a large number of points (say n=500), in
reasonable time ?
Are there tested codes for such situations ?
Thanks to all,
Bernard Beauzamy

Subject: New Book, Parallel Scientific Computation

Dear Colleague,

With great pleasure I announce the publication of my book
"Parallel Scientific Computation: A Structured Approach using BSP and MPI",
Oxford University Press, February 2004.


This is the first text explaining how to use the bulk synchronous
parallel (BSP) model and the freely available BSPlib communication library
in parallel algorithm design and parallel programming.
Aimed at upper level undergraduates, graduate students and researchers
in mathematics, physics and computer science, the main topics treated
in the book are core topics in the area of scientific computation
and many additional topics are treated in numerous exercises.

The book contains five small but complete example programs written in BSPlib
which illustrate the methods taught. An appendix on the message-passing
interface (MPI) discusses how to program in a structured, bulk synchronous
parallel style using the MPI communication library. It presents MPI equivalents
of all the programs in the book. The complete programs of the book
and their driver programs are freely available online in the packages
BSPedupack and MPIedupack.

Contents: Introduction; LU decomposition; The fast Fourier transform;
Sparse matrix-vector multiplication; Auxiliary BSPedupack functions;
A quick reference guide to BSPlib; Programming in BSP style using MPI;
References; Index.

Subject: Special Issue on Large Scale Nonlinear and Semidefinite Programming


Mathematical Programming Series B
Special Issue on "Large Scale Nonlinear and Semidefinite Programming"

We invite research articles for a forthcoming issue of Mathematical
Programming, Series B, on "Large-Scale Nonlinear and Semidefinite
Programming". This issue is in memory of and dedicated to Jos Sturm.

The issue is associated with the
May/04 Workshop at the University of Waterloo</a> on this topic.

Interest in algorithmic nonlinear and semidefinite optimization has
increased in recent years for many reasons, of which we mention three.
First, the great success of interior-point methods (IPMs) in
linear programming, at both a practical and theoretical level,
and the development of highly appealing interior-point theory and methods
for cone programming problems, has motivated researchers to seek practical
interior-point methods for wide classes of large-scale nonlinear problems.
Second, the door to practical solution of hard combinatorial optimization
problems has been opened by nonlinear and semidefinite relaxations of
these problems, along with astonishing advances in computational hardware.
Third, many new applications of nonlinear and semidefinite programming
have been identified in recent years, but solution of practical
instances awaits the development of algorithms for large-scale problems.

The focus of this special issue is on large-scale nonlinear programming,
including cone programming problems such as semidefinite and second-order
cone programming. We invite papers that address the following topics,
individually or in combination:

* algorithmic nonlinear optimization;
* computational methods and NP-hard problems involving large-scale
nonlinear and/or semidefinite programming;
* scientific parallel computing for (large-scale) nonlinear and
semidefinite programming and its application to hard combinatorial
optimization problems.

Deadline for submission of full papers: Nov. 1, 2004. We aim at
completing a first review of all papers by May 1, 2005.

Electronic submissions to the guest editors in the form of pdf files are
encouraged. All submissions will be refereed according to the usual
standards of Mathematical Programming. Information about Mathematical
Programming, Series B, including author guidelines and other special
issues in progress, is available here. Additional information about the
special issue can be obtained from the guest editors.

We are pleased to announce that the First International Conference on
Mesoscopic Methods in Engineering and Science (ICMMES) will take place
July 26 - 29, 2004 at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany.
This meeting will inaugurate an annual series of ICMMES conferences.
The conference will be followed by a one-day short course given by
several experts in the field on July 30, 2004.

The conference will focus on computational methods for challenging
engineering problems based on mesoscopic theory, including the lattice
Boltzmann equation, lattice-gas cellular automata, discrete velocity
models, gas-kinetic scheme and smooth-particle method.

You are cordially invited to participate in the ICMMES and to contribute
a presentation on your recent research. Please submit an extended
abstract no longer than 2 pages to the contact address given on the
ICMMES website before May 1, 2004. Authors will be notified of the
acceptance of abstracts by June 1, 2004. Abstracts which are not
selected for oral presentation may be presented in poster sessions.

The deadline for early registration is April 15th, 2004, after which the
registration fee will increase. The total number of participants is
limited by the seating capacity at the meeting site, we therefore urge
you to register as soon as possible.

More details can be found at:

We hope that this conference will bring together engineers, physicists,
mathematicians, and computer scientists who are interested in mesoscopic
methods and that it will lead to further contributions to this vibrant,
emerging field of scientific research. Should you require any further
information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely yours,

Manfred Krafczyk (TUB) and Li-Shi Luo (NIA)
