Subject: Verification software in MATLAB

Dear colleagues,

On my web page
you can find a software package VERSOFT consisting of about 50
verification files for computing verified solutions of various
linear problems. It is available for free.
Included are, e.g., files for
- verified eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a complex (or real) matrix,
- verified thin singular value decomposition of a rectangular complex (or real)
- verified description of all solutions of a system of linear equations,
- verified linear programming,
- verified roots of a complex (or real) polynomial,
- verified matrix function of a square complex (or real) matrix,
- verified solution of the matrix equation A*X*B+C*X*D=F, etc.

Each VERSOFT file either gives a verified solution, or fails (produces
an output consisting of NaN's); unverified solutions are not outputted.

The package is written in INTLAB, a MATLAB toolbox developed by
Prof. S. M. Rump, University of Technology Hamburg-Harburg, Germany.

With best wishes,

Jiri Rohn

Subject: iFEM: an innovative finite element method package in MATLAB

Finite element method (FEM) is a powerful and popular numerical method
on solving partial differential equations (PDEs), with flexibility in
dealing with complex geometric domains and various boundary
conditions. MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory) is a powerful and popular
software platform using matrix- based script language for scientific
and engineering calculations. This project is on the development of an
finite element method package in MATLAB based on an innovative
programming style: sparse matrixlization. That is to reformulate
algorithms in terms of sparse matrix operations to make use of the
unique strength of MATLAB on fast matrix operations. iFEM, the
resulting package, is a good balance between simplicity, readability,
and efficiency. It will benefit not only education but also future
research and algorithm development on finite element method.

This package can be downloaded from

Subject: PostDoc Position in Real-Time State Estimation in Urban Water Networks


University of Cincinnati
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
Center for Sustainable Urban Engineering

Contact: Prof. Jim Uber;
Application information: Send resume and statement of interest, along
with names and contact information for three references
Start Date: Immediate/negotiable
Salary: $46,000/year + Benefits
Duration: 1-2 years
Required Experience and Characteristics: PhD in Engineering,
Mathematics, or Physics; Skilled at development and testing of
complex software systems using C/C++ and/or Java; Excellent
understanding of numerical analysis algorithms, especially those
related to statistical estimation, real-time state estimation, and
signal processing; Interest in field-scale state estimation
applications as well as theoretical development. A background in
urban water distribution networks is an advantage, but is not required.

Project Responsibilities and Goals:
We are looking for an exceptional individual to take a lead role in
the real-time estimation of spatially and temporally variable water
usage in metropolitan-scale urban water distribution networks. The
statistical characteristics of water usage rates at the individual
customer level vary with demographic and land use characteristics, at
hourly, weekly, and seasonal time scales. These water usage
variations are a principle source of uncertainty in the numerical
prediction of network hydraulic and water quality dynamics, and thus
limit the application of network models to support real-time
operations. You would be a key member of a development team seeking
to apply algorithms and software for real-time state estimation,
fusing field measurements of hydraulic pressures and flow rates with
numerical network models to estimate the statistical patterns of
water usage. Significant foundational work has been accomplished by
other members of the project team, and the goal for the next project
period is to further develop and apply state estimation algorithms
and software to a real water distribution network at a participating
water utility, and evaluate and improve performance.

The Institute of Fluid mechanics is a mixed CNRS unity (joining

in the area of Fluid Mechanics, porous media and applyed mathematics :

Positions would start before January 1st, 2009.
Dead line : Decemmber the 20th, 2008

CONTEXT: Micro-vascularisation is a fundamental topic in various
physiological contexts because it plays a major role in the metabolic
supply, growth and development of tissues. This is true for normal
tissues but also in pathological context, especially for tumor for
which it is now widely admitted that vascular switch is the key step
in cancer malignity. Nevertheless, a quantitative understanding of
the relationship between the complex 3D micro-vascular structure and
metabolic supply at the cell scale is very far from present knowledge.
A key step toward this goal is the possibility of a quantitative
estimate of 3D micro-vascular structures in tissues recently performed
in our team [1-3]. The understanding of the coupling between metabolic
blood supply, transport and consumption in tissues is nevertheless an
ambitious issue in such complicated network. The purpose of this
post-doc is to progress in two directions on the bio-mathematical
tools that have to be settled for addressing those problems.

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this post-doc position is first to develop a
mixed formulation finite element code for handling 2D complex
configuration of coupled transport in tube bundles. This code could
be used to analyze the complete transport problems and systematically
investigate the influence of parameters such as the ratio of tube
diameters to tube spacing, porosity, the Péclet number, etc.. This
first investigation should be compared with asymptotic limit of small
and large Péclet number [5], small porosity. Furthermore, this tool
could be used for the derivation of compartmental models [4].
In a second step the purpose of this project is to develop a 3D
formulation for non-translationally invariant configuration using a
boundary integral Green-function dilute approximation in order to
avoid the meshing of the 3D tissue compartment and to test this
approach in simple configurations.

Additional benefits of the position include travel opportunities,
access to state-of-the-art micro-vascular data bases,
high-performance workstations, and access to real-life applications
through fruitful collaborations in a very active research program.


- Experience in mathematical, computational, and theoretical modeling.
- Scientific computing : Finite element, boundary elements, domain
