**Subject: NSF: LTB of Numerical Methods in Large Scale Scientific Computing**

Dear Colleague:

The Computational Mathematics Program of the Division of Mathematical

Sciences (DMS) at the National Science Foundation has a long history of

supporting basic research on numerical methods and algorithm design in

large-scale computation for problems in science and engineering. This

letter is to inform the mathematics community that the program has a

focused topic area in Fiscal Year 2007 that addresses long-time behavior

(LTB) of numerical methods in large scale scientific computing. This

area of emphasis should not discourage the community from submitting

proposals in the usual wide variety of computation-related fields, but

should be viewed as a special topic of interest.

The number of degrees of freedom, in particular the number of time

steps, for solving partial differential equations grows as computational

resources grow. Errors or numerical artifacts that may be insignificant

when the number of time steps to solution is relatively small can

dominate a calculation as this number reaches the tens or hundreds of

thousands. Such non-physical artifacts can come in a variety of forms,

from the accumulation of numerical truncation error, round-off error,

uncertainty in physical parameter values, model uncertainty, etc.

Theoretical error estimates containing constants that grow exponentially

with time are not adequate to address these effects. Further, as

computational platforms grow in size with increasing numbers of CPUs,

the advent of commodity multi-core processors, and the increasing

heterogeneity of computing environments, increasing care must be paid to

designing algorithms that are conducive to such architectures. The

trend in computational hardware is to have tens or hundreds of thousands

of processors with limited memory associated with each processor and

nodes that contain clusters of processors. It is critical that proposed

numerical approaches take into account various latencies and load

balancing issues that will certainly be encountered on such

architectures. Such large calculations produce very large data sets.

Algorithms for the efficient analysis and visualization of very large

data sets on such modern architectures in order to uncover hidden

correlations and structures are also of interest. Above all, the

physical correctness of the calculation is the most important issue.

Arriving at a physically relevant answer requires careful attention to

the above issues as well as others.

The Division of Mathematical Sciences of the Directorate for

Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the National Science Foundation

recognizes the needs and opportunities posed by this recent surge in

interest in long-time and large-scale computing. Unsolicited research

proposals to DMS addressing cross-cutting topics in one or more aspects

of large-scale scientific computing are considered a focused topic area

by the Computational Mathematics Program. We invite novel and creative

numerical approaches that address solving real physical problems in such

environments.

Proposals addressing this focused topic area should include the label

"LTB:" at the beginning of the proposal title. Such proposals should be

submitted to the Computational Mathematics Program before January 15,

2007; see the NSF web site,

http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=DMS.

Prior to submitting a proposal, investigators are strongly encouraged to

contact the Computational Mathematics Program.

**Subject: PhD Studentship in Medical Imaging at Swansea University**

Swansea University

School of Medicine

PhD studentship in Medical Imaging

We seek an enthusiastic individual with an interest in scientific computing

and medical imaging to join a 3-year, EPSRC-funded project in magnetic

induction tomography. This is a technique that maps the internal electrical

conductivity of the body and is being developed as a new medical imaging

modality. Of particular interest in this project is the imaging of cerebral

stroke and the potential for a new means of rapid diagnosis that could enable

a more timely treatment.

The work will involve numerical modelling and practical laboratory imaging,

leading to clinical measurements. There will be opportunities to present

results at international conferences. Although based at Swansea University,

you will work as part of an established multi-centre research team involving

the Universities of Glamorgan and Manchester, as well as other industrial and

academic partners. You should have a First or Upper Second Class degree, or

equivalent, in Physics, Engineering, Mathematics or a related field.

The studentship is available from 1 November 2006 with a starting date no

later than 1 April 2007.

The stipend will be at the current EPSRC level, £UK12,300 per annum. Tuition

fees will be funded (including at overseas rate).

Further particulars are available from Professor H. Griffiths, tel: +44

(0)1792 285297, email: huw.griffiths@swansea-tr.wales.nhs.uk. To make a formal

application, please email your curriculum vitae to Professor Griffiths, with a

covering letter/message giving the names and contact details of two academic

referees. Interviews will be held in early November.

General information about Swansea University and the School of Medicine can be

found on the website http://www.swan.ac.uk

The closing date for applications is Friday, 3 November 2006.
