**Subject: Jun Liu**

It is sad to report that Dr. Liu, Jun of Fluides, Automatique et Systmes

Thermique (FAST), Unit Mixte de Recherche Paris VI & Paris XI associee au

CNRS, France passed away at the age of 41 on January 26, 2004, due to a

previously unknown heart problem. Jun was a strong young numerical

analyst with contributions to numerical solution of inverse problems,

control problems, and PDEs. He will be remembered as a pleasant and nice

person and a great colleague. Jun will be very much missed by his family

and friends around the world. His funeral will take place in Paris next

week. For further information, please contact his sister Liu, Xiaoping at

"International Workshop on the Technological

Aspects of Mathematics II -

Computational Methods and Mathematical Software"

Montecatini Terme (Pistoia, Italy), April 1-3, 2004

Celebrating Donato Trigiante's 60th birthday

AIMS AND THEMES

Computational codes represent an outstanding technological aspect

of the Mathematical Sciences: they constitute the basic tool for

the problem solving in virtually any applied field. The construction

of such codes requires, in turn, the systematic solution of a

number of related sub-problems, which constitute the intermediate

steps to reach the desired goals. This aspect of Numerical

Mathematics is often a source of new trends of investigation, and

a necessary building block to make Mathematics usable from people

involved in solving real-life problems.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together numerical analysts,

applied mathematicians, and researchers to present, discuss and

exchange ideas about the numerical solution of mathematical

problems. The main theme will be the numerical solution of

differential problems and related topics.

**Subject: Workshop at in Berkeley on The Genetics of Complex Disease**

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) announces a workshop on

``The Genetics of Complex Disease,'' to take place next week, February 9-13,

2004, in Berkeley California. Rapid advances in genetics, computation, and

much else have resulted in the amassing of massive sets of data across the

entire spectrum of biomedical sciences. There are multiple challenges in

extracting reliable quantitative information from these data while

protecting the privacy of members of the public. The mathematical sciences

necessarily occupy a fundamental role in interdisciplinary efforts that have

been, and especially that will be, required to meet these challenges. The

workshop will cover the entire process that pertains to its focus: the

current state of knowledge regarding the genetics of complex diseases.

Topics will include analyses of the human genome and the genomes of other

organisms, and genetic changes that may predispose to prevalent and complex

diseases such as cancer and heart disease --for example, technologies that

enable understanding ``gene expression'' and proteins. Findings to be

reported span the gap ``from bench to bedside.''

Attached to this e-mail message is a poster for the meeting and schedule

that includes abstracts.

The Press and active science writers are invited to attend sessions of the

workshop and to join with us from 4:30 to 6:00PM, February 9th at a

reception for the participants. The organizers of the workshop and many

participants will be available to answer questions. Among them will be:

Richard Olshen (Biostatistics, Stanford)

Genetic studies of predisposition to hypertension and many aspects

of ``pattern recognition;''

Thomas Quertermous (Cardiovascular Medicine, Stanford)

Molecular and population-based research into the genetic basis of

cardiovascular development, function and disease.

Nik Schork (Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego)

Human genomics/Pharmacogenomics. Genetic basis of complex traits and

diseases;

Wing Wong (Statistics and Biostatistics, Harvard)

Analysis of gene expression microarrays,and evolution of cellular

aging and sexual reproduction.
