**Subject: NA and von Neumann anniversaries this year**

Hello,

2007 is the 60th birthday of NA. In the 1940s the name numerical

analysis acquired a new meaning to refer to the mathematical research

on algorithms that people such as John von Neumann felt would be

needed to make best use of the computers just then being invented.

The birth of the modern subject can be credibly dated to 1947 when von

Neumann and Herman Goldstine published a paper [1] on errors in

computational science. The paper was the first to discuss in an

archival journal so many basic ideas such as numerical stability of

discretized partial differential equations and backward error. Von

Neumann was influential in Washington and helped begin government

support for computer science and numerical analysis research in the

United States.

[1] J. von Neumann and H. H. Goldstine, "Numerical Inverting of

Matrices of High Order," Bulletin of the American Mathematical

Society, 53(11), 1947.

The next time your department search committee decides it really needs

to hire another algebraic topologist or analytic number theorist or

whatever, you might remind your chairman that this subject von Neumann

founded, numerical analysis, accounts for the largest number of papers

written in any branch of mathematics second only to PDEs.

2007 is also the 50th anniversary of von Neumann's untimely death [2]

barely a dozen years after he helped start the computer revolution.

[2] "Dr. von Neumann of AEC, 53, Dies," New York Times, February 9,

1957.

Since the international meetings scheduled for this year do not seem

to be commemorating these events, I would be happy to help you

remember them with a colloquium lecture that I have prepared about the

histories of mathematics and computers that form the context for von

Neumann and Goldstine's work. Please contact me for further

information. Travel outside the San Francisco area would have to be

paid by the host institution.

-- Joe

ps: and happy birthday as well to Gene Golub!

**Subject: Interactive Educational Modules in Scientific Computing**

I am pleased to announce the availability of a comprehensive set of

interactive modules to assist students in learning the basic concepts

and algorithms of scientific computing. Each module is a Java applet

that is accessible through a web browser. For each applet, the user

can select problem data and algorithm choices interactively and then

receive immediate feedback on the results, both numerically and

graphically. Although the modules can be used alone or in conjunction

with any textbook, some of the specific examples are based on my book

Scientific Computing: An Introductory Survey, 2nd edition,

McGraw-Hill, 2002 (see http://www.cse.uiuc.edu/heath/scicomp/ ). To

access the modules, point your web browser to the following website:

http://www.cse.uiuc.edu/iem/

The modules were developed by students Evan VanderZee, Jessica Schoen,

Jeffrey Naisbitt, and Nicholas Exner under the supervision of Michael

Heath. Please report suggestions for improvements or ideas for new

modules to heath@uiuc.edu

**Subject: Combinatorial tools for parallel sparse matrix computations, Sept. 2007**

WORKSHOP on COMBINATORIAL TOOLS FOR PARALLEL SPARSE MATRIX COMPUTATIONS

(http://www.scl.ameslab.gov/ctpsm07) held at the

7th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PARALLEL PROCESSING

AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS (PPAM'07)

Gdansk, Poland, September 9-12, 2007

(http://ppam.pcz.pl/)

Many aspects and problems in High-Performance Scientific Computing may benefit

from the use of combinatorial tools. These tools and related techniques are

already common in sparse matrix computations. Their importance increases

further with the emergence of novel parallel architectures and algorithms

targeting cutting-edge problems in science and engineering.

Such tools as graph algorithms facilitate efficient reordering or partitioning

of a sparse matrix or enable its compressed representation. Graph

partitioning algorithms are often used as a front-end step preceding different

operations. Their goal is to distribute a matrix (or a mesh) on high

performance parallel computers in a suitable way for parallel execution, such

that the load is balanced and the interprocessor communication is minimized.

Often there are additional constraints, when for example, a scientific

simulation requires that the graph partitioning is dynamic as the load changes

dynamically. The aim of the Workshop is to provide a forum for an exchange of

recent ideas, insights, and experiences on the following topics of interest:

* Efficient combinatorial algorithms for sparse matrices;

* Graph partitioning and reordering algorithms;

* Applications of combinatorial tools;

* Load balancing using graph partitioning.

PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

Authors should submit papers including an abstract to ctpsm@scl.ameslab.gov by

April 30, 2007. Papers are not to exceed 10 pages in Springer LNCS format.

Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit

and relevance to the workshop. Abstracts of accepted papers will be available

during the conference in the form of a brochure.

Objectives:

The purpose of this conference is to discuss recent developments of

efficient and reliable numerical schemes for flow problems as well as

stability, convergence, and a posteriori analyses and applications to real

problems. In these thirty years there has been a remarkable progress in

upwind type finite element methods, including Petrov-Galerkin methods and

characteristic-curve methods, and so on. We, therefore, rather focus on

finite element schemes, but we also cover any other schemes and topics

related to numerical computation of fluid dynamics.

2007 Student internship opportunities at GlaxoSmithKline

The Scientific Computing and Mathematical Modeling group at

GlaxoSmithKline seeks talented advanced undergraduate and graduate

students in applied mathematics and computer science for summer internship

positions.

Scientific Computing and Mathematical Modeling (SCMM) applies mathematical

and computational techniques to a variety of challenging problems in

pharmaceutical research. We are the premier mathematical modeling group

in the pharmaceutical industry. Our group works on mathematical models

related to the biology of disease states and drug interventions, the

chemistry and physics of drug formulations and delivery devices, and the

structure of large biochemical pathways in cells. In addition, we develop

sophisticated computational tools that are used to build and calibrate

mathematical models, incorporate large quantities of experimental data,

and visualize the results of model-generated computational experiments.

For Summer 2007 we are seeking for graduate students and highly advanced

undergraduates for three internship positions. The projects are listed

below together with the required skills for each position:

Lipoprotein metabolism: Mathematical biology, scientific computing,

mathematical modeling

Model calibration and optimization: Numerical analysis, optimization,

Matlab programming

Scientific computing: Programming

We seek mature, motivated self-starters who can successfully integrate

sophisticated mathematics and computer software with real-world biological

problems. The internship positions may be located at our facilities in the

Philadelphia area or in Research Triangle Park, NC.

Applicants can apply through our website:
