**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,

**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.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

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.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Mathematical Programming Series B

Special Issue on "Large Scale Nonlinear and Semidefinite Programming"

URL:

orion.math.uwaterloo.ca/~hwolkowi/w04workshop.d/mpbspecialissue.d/

callforpapers.html

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.

URL: orion.math.uwaterloo.ca/~hwolkowi/w04workshop.d/readme.html

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.

**Subject: Conference at Braunschweig on Mesoscopic Methods**

Dear colleagues,

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:

http://www.icmmes.org/

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,
