Subject: PLTMG 9.0 Available

PLTMG 9.0 is a package for solving elliptic partial differential
equations in general regions of the plane. It is based on continuous
piecewise linear triangular finite elements. PLTMG features several
adaptive meshing options and an algebraic multilevel solver for the
resulting systems of linear equations. PLTMG provides a suite of
continuation options to handle PDEs with parameter dependencies.
It also provides options for solving several classes of optimal
control and obstacle problems. The package includes an initial
mesh generator and several graphics packages. Support for the
Bank-Holst parallel adaptive meshing paradigm is also provided.

PLTMG is provided as Fortran (and a little C) source code, in both
single and double precision versions. The code has interfaces to
X-Windows, MPI, and Michael Holst's OpenGL display tool SG. The
X-Windows, MPI, and SG interfaces require libraries that are NOT
provided as part of the PLTMG package. PLTMG is available from
Netlib, Mgnet, and my homepage:

Subject: Best Paper Award Computational Optimization and Applications

The journal, Computational Optimization and Applications (COAP), has
announced that Jeff Linderoth, Lehigh University, and Stephen Wright,
University of Wisconsin-Madison, have won the COAP 2003 Best Paper Award
for "Decomposition Algorithms for Stochastic Programming on a
Computational Grid," published in COAP, Volume 24, pp. 207-250. This paper
demonstrates the vast potential of harnessing the computational
capabilities of the millions of processors connected through the
internet. Using over one thousand computers spread across the United
States and in Europe, the authors describe how they solved many challenging
problems. In one case, they solve a flight mobilization model involving
billions of decisions in just over a day when conventional computing would
have required over a year. To achieve these results, they provide new
solution methods that work asynchronously and fit the heterogeneous,
dynamic, and unreliable computing environment of widely dispersed machines
that exists today. Their work provides a solid platform for further
developments in exploiting the power of the computational grid.

Subject: NETIAM, New and Emerging Themes in Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The Smith Institute is coordinating a project in support of the European
Commission's programme in New and Emerging Science and Technology (NEST)
under Framework 6. The project started in March 2004 and will last for 15
months. It will concentrate on New and Emerging Themes in Industrial and
Applied Mathematics (NETIAM), and brings together the Smith Institute with
Fraunhofer-ITWM in Germany, the Technical University of Eindhoven in The
Netherlands, the University of Firenze in Italy and Ventspils University
College in Latvia.

NETIAM will use mathematical frameworks to identify ground-breaking research
directions in four themes:

modelling the business environment
modelling criminality in the social environment
visualization and simulation of materials
complexity at the molecular level.

Technology Translators from the Smith Institute will facilitate
multidisciplinary Thematic Workshops hosted by its four NETIAM partners
around Europe and then a capstone Plenary Workshop will consolidate the
findings into a form that will enable new research consortia to be taken

Subject: Workshop in San Diego on Clusters and Grids

Call for Papers

Workshop on innovative numerical algorithms for clusters and grids.
To be held in conjunction with the CLUSTER 2004 conference
in San Diego (CA, USA), sept. 20th, 2004

Numerical algorithms that solve large scale problems have been the object of
extensive studies for many years. The emergence of new environments such as
clusters and grids has motivated new developments targeted to the new
architectures. Among the new problems arising: the importance of
communications, the geographical distribution of the processors, and the
dynamic behavior and heterogeneity of the platforms. All these bring new
challenges to which parallel numerical algorithms need to adapt.
This workshop aims to bring together scientists interested in this field,
whether they are practitioners, engineers or researchers. This will be an
occasion for them to share their knowledge and experience, as well as
exchange their point of view.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Case studies and implementation of techniques/algorithms to solve large
- Performance comparison of numerical algorithms
- Parallel direct and iterative algorithms
- Heuristic algorithms for large problems
- Load balancing and scheduling
- Synchronous and asynchronous algorithms
- New models for cluster and/or grid computing
- Robustness, fault tolerance and extensibility
- Programming and environment tools

Subject: Symposium in Tokyo on Voronoi Diagrams

Call for Papers

International Symposium
Voronoi Diagrams in Science and Engineering

September 13-15, 2004
University of Tokyo, Hongo, Tokyo, Japan

Sponsored by the 21st Century COE Program
on Information Science and Technology Strategic Core,
University of Tokyo
Goal and Fields
The concept of the Voronoi diagram as well as its dual structure, the
Delaunay diagram, is one of the most fundamental geometric big ideas, and
has been discovered and re-discovered repeatedly in the history of many
fields of science and engineering. This concept has become even more
important because recent development of computational methods enables us
to compute large-scale Voronoi diagrams in a robust manner, and consequently
enables us to apply this idea to practical problems arising in real worlds.
The goal of this symposium is to exchange ideas among different
disciplines and different fields of science and engineering, in particular
between theoreticians and practitioners and among practitioners in various
fields of applications, through the common tool "Voronoi/Delaunay diagram",
and thus to stimulate research activities in an interdisciplinary manner.
Expected topics include, but are not restricted to,

Theoretical aspects of Voronoi/Delaunay diagrams
Computational and implementational aspects of Voronoi/Delaunay diagrams
Generalizaion of the Voronoi/Delaunay diagrams
Applications of the Voronoi/Delaunay diagrams to
Material science
Location science
Geographic information systems
Mesh generation
Geometric algorithms
Solid modeling
Computer graphics
Pattern analysis and recognition
Space analysis
Motion analysis and planning
Collision detection and avoidance
Operations research
and others

Subject: PhD Student Position at Groningen University

PhD student in medical mathematics

The graduate school for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN), the
department of Neurology of Groningen University and the University Hospital
Groningen, the Netherlands, currently have an opening for a PhD student who
will conduct research on new methodological developments for analysis of
multi-channel EEG/EP measurements. The objective is to eventually improve
the clinical applicability of the neurophysiological tests (ERP, P300, SEP,
VEP, EEG/EMG, EEG/EMG during fMRI) that can be performed during the
diagnostic workup of neurological diseases.

We are looking for candidates who have completed a masters in Biomedical
Engineering or a comparable masters (e.g. Life Sciences) and have a thorough
mathematical background. A masters in applied mathematics with a clear
interest in medical applications is also a possibility. The relevant
mathematical fields are signal analysis, linear algebra, linear analysis and
numeral mathematics.

The PhD student will be based at the BCN Neuroimaging Center, an
interdisciplinary center for neuroimaging that has facilities for both MRI
and EEG. Part of the time will be spent at the department of Clinical
Neurophysiology at the Groningen University Hospital.
Candidates have written an excellent master's thesis, preferably on a theme
related to the current project. Some research experience is considered
advantageous. Further relevant qualifications are a structured approach to
scientific questions, a broad interest and an open mind, communicative and
cooperative skills and the ability to prioritize.

Conditions of employment
The position is offered for a four-year period. Salary is according to
university standards, Euro 1702,00 gross per month in the first year to Euro
2283,00 gross per month in the fourth year.
After the first year, there will be an assessment of the candidate's results
and the project's progress. Part of that is that the PhD student will have
to defend his/her research proposal. Based on this, it will be decided
whether a project will be continued.
