**Subject: Reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces**

Dear colleagues,

In my research on numerical analysis for high dimensional problems I

often use reproducing kernel Hilbert space methods. These methods

also appear in learning theory and statistics. However, I cannot put

my finger on a single source that introduces the theory of

reproducing kernels and describes their various applications in an

accessible way. Thus, I would like to compile a bibliography of

references that would be of interest to the mathematically

intelligent person who is interested in this area, but ignorant of it.

If you know of something suitable, please send me the reference by

email. Books, book chapters, review articles, lecture notes, etc.

would be appropriate but not articles that are narrowly focused.

Comments will also be welcome. I will then post the annotated

bibliography on my website and announce it in a future issue of NA-

Net Digest.

Best regards,

Fred

**Subject: Re: NA Digest too dull?**

I think there are two reasons why the NA digest might be getting "too dull":

(1) The internet. When I first starting reading the digest (back in the

late 1980's), we didn't have web browers and web pages, web forums and so

on. The result is that the way we exchange information has moved away from

"email digests" to more interactive and more easily accessible web pages,

web forums, chat rooms and so on.

(2) People's lives are busier than ever. There's more pressure in academia

- e.g. in getting research grants, teaching, getting a "good public

rating/score" of one's University - which gives us less time to have

meaningful discussions in email digests!

It might be worth considering making the nigest web based only, with an

option to subscribe for emails whenever something new is posted?

**Subject: Re: NA Digest too dull? (response to Karen Pao)**

Dear NA Digesters:

Karen Pao brilliantly expressed wide spread opinion: "CFD is a "mature" field

in the sense that there has been no great innovation. No "must read" paper in

the field has been written in the last 10 years."

Nevertheless, CFD is neither dull nor "mature".

a) A student from physical department surely gets negative mark if he presents

result of experiment (in laboratory) without error bar. Most calculations in

CFD are presented without tolerances (best are accompanied by assessment that

calculations are the same for couple of grid dimensions). When this pleasant

difference between laboratory and computational experiments will be eliminated

we may discuss "maturity" again.

b) Users are rarely happy with beautifully colored fields of pressure or

temperature produced by CFD codes. They need something optimal (maximum lift

force, minimum drag etc). But it is impossible to find an optimum solution

from simple CFD calculated flowfield. Really, they need some results of

Inverse CFD problem that are rarity so far. For example, in computational

thermophysics (more mature discipline due to simpler equations) the relation

of direct and inverse problems is close to unit.

The situation at both these frontiers is dramatically changing at present.

I would recommend look at papers by Oden, Giles, Jameson etc on application of

adjoint equations.

Sincerely Yours,

Aleksey Alekseev

**Subject: CFD is not dead!**

Reply to Karen Pao: NA Digest too dull? 17 April 2006

No, CFD is not dead! It has just been born and is quickly developing.

As a concrete evidence of the new possibilities of computational

modeling of realistic turbulent flows, which are now being opened

using adaptive finite element methods, you can download a preliminary

version of the new book (from www.bodysoulmath.org or www.fenics.org)

Computational Turbulent Incompressible Flow

by Johan Hoffman and Claes Johnson, to appear as Vol 4 in the Body&Soul

Applied Mathematics series at Springer in the Fall 06.

In particular, the book solves three scientific Mysteries and

uncovers four Secrets, by computational simulation of turbulent flow.

Any comments will be welcome

A while ago we have added to the optimization solvers we have

made accessible through NEOS (neos.mcs.anl.gov) the stochastic

mixed-integer solver DDSIP by R. Schults and coworkers. It has

not been used so far. Interested members may check it out and

send me any feedback. If there is no usage it is likely to be

removed again.

**Subject: Workshop on Evolutionary Problems with Memory, Jun 06**

SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Workshop: Innovative Methods for Solving Evolutionary Problems with Memory

CAPRI, June 19-21, 2006.

Aim and Scope: The study of phenomena of the real world, in recent years, is

carried on through a mathematical simulation which captures their behaviour,

characteristics and properties. If, during its evolution, the phenomena show a

dependency on the previous history, then the mathematical models which best

simulate the phenomena are Integral Equations, whose hereditary character

makes difficult both the theoretical study and the resolution process. In

particular, Volterra Integral Equations appear in the study of many phenomena

which are important in applied sciences, such as population dynamics,

diffusion of an epidemic, neural networks, and so on. For most of these

models, it is important to develop both new efficient numerical methods, and

mathematical software to obtain numerical solutions for the comprehension of

the phenomena during its evolution in time, and to collect informations on the

problem. Aim of this Workshop is to provide a forum both for expert

researchers in this topic, and for researchers of closed areas, to present and

discuss ideas, theories and applications.

**Subject: Announcing a short course on CFD at Cambridge, Jun 06**

A First Course on Computational Fluid Dynamics

Core lecturer: Professor Phil Roe (Aerospace, Michigan)

Cambridge 26 - 30 June 2006

Scope: The course will provide a solid foundation on traditional and

advanced numerical discretisation techniques for the solution of the

various partial differential equations which govern fluid flow, showing how

successful numerical methods are rooted both in mathematical properties of

those equations and in notions of computational efficiency.

Working Plan: The morning lectures on the theory will be complemented by

hands-on computational practicals during the afternoons. The participants

will work on numerical exercises as individuals and as members of a team,

and present their results to the rest of the class. There will also be

seminars by established researchers on application of CFD to contemporary

science and technology topics.

Who should attend: The course will aim to convey a "CFD literacy" enabling

newcomers to understand the literature and to select methods that are

effective for their applications. It will also provide the foundation for

existing users who would like to become more involved with algorithm and

code development. A strong background in an applied science or/and

mathematics is recommended.
