**Subject: Algorithms for Approximation VI, UK, Aug/Sep 2009**

The sixth in this series of UK conferences, focusing on application of

ideas from approximation theory for developing practical algorithms, will

take place from August 31 to September 4th 2009, in Ambleside in the Lake

District.

This conference will have the theme of Complexity, in particular Tropical

Mathematics, Approximation Theory, Non-Linear and Non-Smooth Dynamics,

Model Reduction, and Wild Complexity, where statistics and model reduction

do not work so well. We will be fostering linkage between these emerging

areas, and classical approximation theory, such as orthogonal polynomials,

splines, wavelets, and radial basis functions.

There will be five keynote talks given by leaders in different directions in

complexity, including

Chris Budd (Bath)

Yannis Kevrekidis (Princeton)

Grigori Litvinov (University of Moscow)

Linda Petzold (Santa Barbara)

There will be themed minisymposia, related to the talks of the keynote

speakers.

One of the main aims of the conference is to generate research projects

which will lead to grant applications for supporting teams of researchers.

**Subject: Summer Internships at DCMT, Cranfield University, Shrivenham**

Summer Internships 2009

The Engineering Systems Department of Cranfield University within the

Defence College of Management and Technology is offering several

research internships.

Student internships are normally for a duration of three/four months

and do not lead to a formal academic award. It is expected that the

internships start normally in May or a mutually convenient

time. Students are expected to produce a final report based on the

work carried out during their internship. There is no tuition fee

attached to the internship and a stipend of £240 pounds per week is

paid towards the cost of living for the duration of the internship.

How to apply

For initial inquiries, please send your curriculum vitae, transcripts

of your marks together with names of two referees. Please include a

short description of your reasons why you are most suited to the

chosen topic. Please do not exceed 200 words. Please note that the

overseas students require a valid student visa and an IELTS of at

least 6.5. Selection of candidates depends on your performance on some

interview questions sent to you by email. It is anticipated that that

the selection of candidates will be announced during the second week

of February 2009. For further details, please visit
