Subject: New version of LAPACK

There is a new version of LAPACK, LAPACK 3.1. Here is a summary of the new

1) Hessenberg QR algorithm with the small bulge multi-shift QR algorithm
together with aggressive early deflation. This is an implementation of the
2003 SIAM SIAG LA Prize winning algorithm of Braman, Byers and Mathias, that
significantly speeds up the nonsymmetric eigenproblem.

2) Improvements of the Hessenberg reduction subroutines. These accelerate
the first phase of the nonsymmetric eigenvalue problem.

3) New MRRR eigenvalue algorithms that also support subset computations.
These implementations of the 2006 SIAM SIAG LA Prize winning algorithm of
Dhillon and Parlett are also significantly more accurate than the version in

4) Mixed precision iterative refinement subroutines for exploiting fast
single precision hardware. On platforms like the Cell processor that do
single precision much faster than double, linear systems can be solved many
times faster. Even on commodity processors there is a factor of 2 in speed
between single and double precision. This is a prototype routine in the
sense that its interface might changed based on user feedback.

5) New partial column norm updating strategy for QR factorization with
column pivoting. This fixes a subtle numerical bug dating back to LINPACK
that can give completely wrong results.

6) Thread safety: Removed all the SAVE and DATA statements (or provided
alternate routines without those statements), increasing reliability on

7) Additional support for matrices with NaN/subnormal elements,
optimization of the balancing subroutines, improving reliability.

8) Several bug fixes.

Dealing with the massive quantity and diversity of data generated by research
and industry presents one of the defining challenges to data mining. The huge
size of many databases together with online documents presents an opportunity
to discover previously unobserved patterns. There is now widespread
recognition that it is possible to extract previously unknown knowledge from
large datasets using machine learning techniques. For this reason there is a
growing body of research concerned with the use of parallel and grid computing
for data mining. The challenge is not only algorithmic but also the management
of the large amounts of associated data and the provision of a user interface.

The special issue is targeted at researchers actively involved in data mining
on Supercomputing and Grid environments. It will focus on Data Mining tools
and applications to explore the opportunities and challenges of data discovery
via the Grid and Supercomputing resources.

This special issue is intended to address but not be limited to the following
issues: . Investigating Data Management issues for processing large datasets
on Grid . Applying Data/Text Mining to new scientific domains and application
areas . Deploying Data/Text Mining techniques in the Grid and Supercomputing
environments. Developing new techniques and algorithms suitable for Grid and
Supercomputing resources. Evaluating system usability and system performance
in Pattern Matching Techniques

Subject: Post-doc: Optimization of hydrogen transportation and distribution networks design

Post-doc Proposal: Optimization of hydrogen transportation and distribution
networks design

Description: By 2050, hydrogen will be one of the main energy in the world by
replacing oil and gas. Whereas the future uses of hydrogen are clearly
identified (mainly for automotive applications), remaining choices have to be
made along the supply chain of hydrogen:
* Production: centralized or decentralized, from natural gas, by
electrolysis or from biomass,
* Storage: in small or big quantities, in underground caverns, gas
under high pressures or liquid with very low temperatures,
* Transportation: through pipelines or with trucks, building of
dedicated networks or use of already existing (natural gas) networks,
* Distribution: localization of refueling stations.

From different forecasted scenarios, the ECOTRANSHY project (part of the
French National Plan of Action for Hydrogen) consists of elaborating an
economic model to develop hydrogen transportation and distribution networks.
For a given scenario, it deals with the selection of the best layout and
features of these networks as well as the optimal evolution through the time
with the help of operations research methods.

The work will be divided as follows:
1. State of the art and assessment of the available input data (1,5
2. Inputs and Outputs definition of the economic model (1,5 months)
3. Model development (7 months)
4. Case study and comparison with other alternatives (6 months)
5. Conclusions (2 months)

This work coordinated by the R&D Division of Gaz de France will be lead in
collaboration with IFP (French Institute on Oil), Total and the Université
Littoral Côte d’Opale (based in Dunkerque, France). The researches could be
presented in international conferences and published in scientific journals.

Required qualifications: The applicant has finished or is currently finishing
a PhD in applied mathematics or quantitative methods of management. A
specialization in mathematical programming techniques (combinatory and/or
nonlinear) is required and, if possible, in the optimal design of
transportation fluid networks. He has a good knowledge of the modeling and
programming tools (MATLAB, GAMS, C++…). A background knowledge in energy
systems will be an asset. Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to
collaborate effectively on diverse teams are also required for this position.
International applicants are welcome.

Duration: 18 months (full time)
Period: From January 2007 to June 2008

Contacts: Submit a letter of application indicating the relevant research
background and future research directions in English or in French, CV, list of
publications to:

Funding for a PhD studentship is available immediately through the EPSRC
Doctoral Training Account for UK and EU students (the latter on a fees only
basis). The Department has considerable expertise in a wide range of applied
and applicable mathematics, and emphasis is placed on problems arising in
engineering and science. Research in the Department is organised into four

Applied Analysis. This group focuses on the development of rigorous analytic
and constructive methods for solving differential and integral equations in
the applied sciences. Particular attention is paid to nonlinear evolutionary
processes and operator equations. Topics include applications of semigroups
to nonlinear coagulation-fragmentation problems, fractional calculus,
reaction-diffusion equations and problems in materials science and economics.

Continuum Mechanics. The Continuum Mechanics group is one of the leading
centres for liquid crystal theory in Europe. A principal activity is the
mathematical modelling of macroscopic effects in thermotropic liquid
crystals. Other interests include physical foundations, continuum modelling
and non-linear waves.

Industrial Mathematics. Research in this area is motivated and inspired by
scientific problems arising in a wide range of practical contexts, notably
industry, process engineering, geology, medicine, and biology. The unifying
theme of all the work done by the group is that it uses a judicious
combination of analytical, asymptotic and numerical techniques to bring new
insights and understanding to practically important problems.

Numerical Analysis. The Numerical Analysis group is the largest and one of
the strongest in the UK. Research interests are diverse, including the
construction and analysis of methods for numerical solution of nonlinear
differential equations, and on computational solution of problems of
practical interest. There is also related research activity in several
aspects of numerical linear algebra and approximation theory.
