**Subject: Richard A. Harshman**

Richard A. Harshman (University of Western Ontario) passed away on

Thursday January 10 as the result of heart failure. He was the father of

parallel factor analysis, one of the most important techniques for

multi-way analysis. He was also co-author of the paper in which latent

semantic indexing was introduced. His recent work included multi-way

generalizations of the general linear model in statistics. The multi-way

community has lost one of its founding fathers and one of its finest and

most eminent members. We will all miss him.

The funeral will be on Friday Jan 18. Condolences may be sent directly

to his wife, Elizabeth Hampson, at ehampson@uwo.ca.

**Subject: New software tool: Sollya 1.0**

Hello,

For about one year we have been developing a free software tool called Sollya:

http://sollya.gforge.inria.fr

The interface of the tool is an interactive shell with an extended scripting

language.

Currently, Sollya is intended to be a general tool supporting the synthesis of

numerical codes. Nevertheless it provides several functionalities of general

use. Amongst other things, Sollya provides a (multiprecision) infinite norm

algorithm for univariate functions. It can compute the best polynomial

approximation of a function. It can also generate certified C code for

evaluating such an approximation polynomial with a given accuracy.

As far as we know, some functionalities in numeric computations were only

available in proprietary software such as Maple or Matlab. The purpose of

Sollya has first been to overcome these dependencies while providing faster

and more accurate results. We invite all of you who could have similar needs

to try out Sollya. Please, send us your remarks and indicate your additional

needs. New developers are welcome, too.

New From Springer

Multiscale Methods

Averaging and Homogenization

G. A. Pavliotis, Imperial College London, London, England

A. M. Stuart, University of Warwick, London, England

Appropriate for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers, this

introduction to multiscale methods gives readers a broad overview of

the uses and applications of the methods. The book begins by setting

the theoretical foundations of the subject area, and moves on to

develop a unified approach to the simplification of a wide range of

problems which possess multiple scales, via perturbation expansions;

differential equations and stochastic processes are studied in one

unified framework. The book concludes with an overview of a range of

theoretical tools used to justify the simplified models derived via

the perturbation expansions.

DUNE Course March 13-14, 2008

IPVS, University Stuttgart, Germany

http://ipvs.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de/sgs/dune-course/

In many areas of science and engineering numerical simulation is an

important tool for research and development. Current simulation

trends range from multiscale-/multiphysics modelling to the usage of

parallel machines with PetaFlops performance. The Distributed and

Unified Numerics Environment (DUNE) (http://www.dune-project.org)

framework tries to fit these heterogeneous requirements inside a

single environment with novel numerical techniques as well as

state-of-the-art software development methods.

By participating in this course scientists have the opportunity to get

a hands-on introduction to the DUNE framework. Main focus is to give a

detailed introduction to the DUNE core modules: the grid interface

including IO methods with its numerous grid implementations and the

iterative solver module ISTL. In the exercises a hyperbolic sample

problem will be implemented (convection equation using

Discontinuous-Galerkin discretisations with constant and linear shape

functions).

34th International Conference on Applications of Mathematics in

Engineering and Economics

(AMEE'08, http://www.tu-sofia.bg/fpmi/amee/index.html)

June 8-14, 2008, Sozopol, Bulgaria.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together Grid researchers to discuss

current state of the Grid and most pressing research issues. Workshop

will consist of presentations of contributed papers as well as a panel

discussion. We believe that meeting in a relaxed atmosphere of a Black

Sea resort can be very constructive and thought provoking. Therefore we

would like to invite researchers in the Grid area to contribute papers

covering all and any aspect of Grid computing. Post conference

Proceedings will be published by the American Institute of Physics.

Extended versions of selected papers will be invited to a Special Issue

of the Scalable Computing, Practice and Experience (www.scpe.org) journal.

Extended abstracts (one page; with exception of figures, which may

result in a 2-page submission) should be sent to the Workshop organizers

till March 15, 2008. Notification for accepted presentations based on

the abstracts will be given till March 30, 2008.

**Subject: Pos. Univ. of Antwerp: High-prec. reliable special function evaluation**

The research group Computer Arithmetic and Numerical Techniques

(University of Antwerp, Belgium) is currently hiring starting

researchers (we offer two times 2 years towards the completion of a

doctoral thesis) or experienced researchers (we offer at most 4 times

one year postdoctoral work) with interest in numerical analysis.

Research topic: High-precision reliable special function evaluation

Special functions are well-known to be of importance in all branches

of science, for the solution of equations and the computation of

certain quantities. A lot of theoretical information about special

functions can be found in the world-famous handbook of Abramowitz and

Stegun and in the near future also in its electronic successor DLMF or

Digital Library of Mathematical Functions developed at NIST (USA). In

addition to theoretical information, the authoritative survey paper of

Daniel Lozier and Frank Olver lists the known implementations of

special functions, either in commercial or freely available software.

While there exist several excellent libraries implementing

high-precision computations, it is essential to realize that these

libraries implement only the basic operations and elementary functions

in high-precision. Very little support exists for the high-precision,

reliable evaluation of special functions. Up to this date, even

environments such as Maple, Mathematica, MATLAB and libraries such as

IMSL, CERN and NAG offer no routines for the reliable evaluation of

special functions.
