**Subject: LAPACK 3.2 released**

LAPACK 3.2 was released on Nov 16, 2008.

Highlights of the latest release include the following:

Linear solvers that “guarantee” fully accurate answers

(or give a warning that the answer cannot be trusted)

XBLAS, or portable extra-precise BLAS, used by above linear solvers

QR decomposition that can run in O(n^2) time on "narrow profile"

matrices stored in dense format (including but not limited

to band matrices)

QR decomposition that guarantees non-negative real diagonal of R

High accuracy Jacobi-based SVD (more accurate for tiny singular

values, and faster than QR-based SVD on average)

New packed storage for symmetric, Hermitian and triangular matrices

that runs at full BLAS3 speed

Pivoted Cholesky for semi-definite symmetric matrices

Mixed precision iterative refinement that solves double-precision

problems at single-precision speeds

Right-looking, left-looking and recursive variants of LU, QR

and Cholesky, which can run faster depending on architecture

Various improvements to DQDS algorithm for bidiagonal SVD, and

to multishift Hessenberg QR algorithm

**Subject: NSF Mathematical and Statistical Research for Threat Detection**

Dear Colleague Letter for the Division of Mathematical Sciences

with the title "Mathematical and Statistical Research for Threat

Detection"

Dear Colleague:

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at the National Science

Foundation (NSF) has a long history of supporting scientific

research to develop technology in order to secure the national

defense. We expect, beginning in FY 2009, to form a partnership

with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to develop the next

generation of mathematical and statistical algorithms and

methodologies in sensor systems for the detection of chemical and

biological materials as an area of emphasis within the

Computational Mathematics program. These new algorithms could be

formed, but are not limited to, mathematical research areas such as

mathematical modeling, signal processing, statistics, harmonic and

geometric analysis, topology, numerical analysis, and optimal

control.

The purpose of this letter is to make the mathematical sciences

community aware of this upcoming opportunity in order to begin to

formulate thoughts and collaborations, and to assemble a diverse

group of mathematical sciences researchers who are actively working

in the above described research areas to create innovative and

novel algorithms and methodologies.

DMS and DTRA recognize the needs and opportunities for the

mathematical sciences community to develop technology for

controlling and reducing the threat from biological and chemical

attack. We seek ambitious, transformative, and creative

research proposals from individual PIs and collaborative groups in

the mathematical sciences community. Proposals should have in

the title ATD (Algorithms for Threat Detection) and should be

submitted to the Computational Mathematics program of DMS within

the submission window from December 1 to December 15.

Please see

**Subject: New book, Differential-Algebraic Systems**

A new book on differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) has been recently

released. Entitled "Differential-Algebraic Systems: Analytical Aspects and

Circuit Applications", it is authored by Ricardo Riaza, from Universidad

Politécnica de Madrid, Spain, and published by World Scientific. The scope of

the book is summarized below.

DAE theory provides an essential tool for system modeling and analysis within

different fields of applied sciences and engineering. This book addresses

modeling issues and analytical properties of DAEs, together with some

applications in electrical circuit theory. Beginning with elementary aspects,

the book provides a self-contained and comprehensive presentation of several

advanced topics in DAE theory, such as the full characterization of linear

time-varying equations via projector methods or the geometric reduction of

nonlinear systems. Recent results on singularities are extensively discussed.

The book also addresses in detail differential-algebraic models of electrical

and electronic circuits, including index characterizations and qualitative

aspects of circuit dynamics. In particular, the reader will find a thorough

discussion of the state/semistate dichotomy in circuit modeling. The state

formulation problem, which has attracted much attention in the engineering

literature, is tackled here as a reduction problem on semistate models.

The book can be used in a graduate course on DAEs. Applied mathematicians and

analysts, as well as electrical and electronic engineers, may also benefit

from its contents.

**Subject: New book, Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers **

Louis Komzsik, Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers

Taylor & Francis, 2008

The subject of calculus of variations is to find optimal solutions to

engineering problems where the optimum may be a certain quantity, a shape, or

a function. Applied Calculus of Variations for Engineers addresses this very

important mathematical area applicable to many engineering disciplines. Its

unique, application-oriented approach sets it apart from the theoretical

treatises of most texts. It is aimed at enhancing the engineer's understanding

of the topic as well as aiding in the application of the concepts in a variety

of engineering disciplines.

The book is organized into two parts: theoretical foundation and engineering

applications. The first part starts with the fundamental variational problem

and its solution via the Euler-Lagrange equation. This is followed by extension

to variational problems subject to constraints, containing functions of multiple

variables and functionals with higher order derivatives. It continues with the

inverse problem of variational calculus, when the variational problem is sought

corresponding to a differential equation. The first part concludes with direct

solution techniques (the Ritz, Galerkin, and Kantorovich methods).

The second part starts with geometric applications, including the geodesic

concept of differential geometry and extensions to higher order spaces. The

computational geometry chapter covers the variational origin of natural splines

and formulation of B-splines under various constraints. The final two chapters

focus on analytic and computational mechanics. Topics include the variational

form and subsequent solution of several classical mechanical problems using

Hamilton's principle. The last chapter discusses generalized coordinates and

Lagrange's equations of motion. Fundamental applications of elasticity, heat

conduction, and fluid mechanics with computational technology conclude the book.

**Subject: Course on Linear Matrix Inequalities, Prague, Feb 2009**

Course on LMI optimization with applications in control

by Didier Henrion, LAAS-CNRS, Toulouse, France

and Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic.

http://www.laas.fr/~henrion

Venue and dates:

The course is given at the Czech Technical University in Prague,

Charles Square, down-town Prague (Karlovo Namesti 13, 12135 Praha 2)

from Monday February 2 to Friday February 6, 2009. It consists of

six two-hour lectures and two two-hour Matlab labs. There is no

admission fee, students and researchers from external institutions

are particularly welcome, but please send an e-mail to

<henrion@laas.fr> to register.

Description:

This is a course for graduate students or researchers with some

background in linear algebra, convex optimization and linear control

systems. The focus in on semidefinite programming (SDP), or

optimization over linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), an extension of

linear programming to the cone of positive semidefinite matrices.

Outline:

In the first part of the course, historical developments of LMIs and

SDP are surveyed. Convex sets that can be represented with LMIs are

classified and studied. LMI relaxations are introduced to solve

non-convex polynomial optimization problems, with a focus on the

theory of measures and moments. Finally, interior-point algorithms

are described to solve LMI problems and latest achievements in software

and solvers are reported. The second part of the course focuses on

the application of LMI techniques to solve control problems. Standard

control problems are revisited thanks to recent results on invariant

measures and SDP. Finally, more difficult control problems, such as

robustness analysis of linear systems, or design of fixed-order robust

controllers with H-infinity specifications, are addressed thanks

to the flexibility of the LMI framework. The originality of the approach

is in the simultaneous use of algebraic or polynomial techniques

(as opposed to classical state-space methods) and modern convex

optimization techniques. For the labs we use YALMIP, GloptiPoly,

SeDuMi and PENNON under a Matlab environment.
