**Subject: Announcement of release of BOBYQA**

This Fortran software seeks the least value of a function of several variables

without requiring any derivatives of the objective function. It was developed

from my NEWUOA package for this calculation in the unconstrained case. The

main new feature of BOBYQA, however, is that it allows lower and upper bounds

on each variable. The name BOBYQA denotes Bound Optimization BY Quadratic

Approximation.

Please send an e-mail to me at mjdp@cam.ac.uk if you would like to receive a

free copy of the Fortran software. As far as I know BOBYQA is the most

powerful package available at present for minimizing functions of hundreds of

variables without derivatives subject to simple bound constraints. There are

no restrictions on its use. I would be delighted if it becomes valuable to

much research and many applications.

**Subject: New book, Introduction to Derivative-Free Optimization**

We are pleased to announce the book

Introduction to Derivative-Free Optimization,

A. R. Conn, K. Scheinberg, and L. N. Vicente,

MPS-SIAM Book Series on Optimization, SIAM, Philadelphia, 2009

It provides a contemporary, comprehensive treatment of optimization

without derivatives, and it covers most of the relevant classes of

algorithms from direct-search to model-based approaches.

The book is intended for anyone interested in using optimization

on problems where derivatives are difficult or impossible to obtain

and is readily accessible to readers with a modest background in

computational mathematics.

Introduction to Derivative-Free Optimization contains:

- A comprehensive description of the sampling and modeling

tools needed for derivative-free optimization that allow the

reader to better understand the convergent properties of the

algorithms and identify their differences and similarities.

- Analysis of convergence for search-poll direct-search, modified

Nelder-Mead, and implicit-filtering methods, as well as for

model-based methods such as wedge methods and methods based

on minimum-norm Frobenius models.

**Subject: Distributed & Unified Numerical Environment (DUNE) Course, Mar 2009**

IWR, University Heidelberg, Germany

http://conan.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/dune-workshop/

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) 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 elliptic and hyperbolic

model problems will be solved with various methods.

In addition, a course on advanced C++ programming will be held

before the DUNE workshop on March 23-24, 2009.

**Subject: Spring School on Fluid Mechanics and Geophysics, Singapore, Apr 2009**

The Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of

Singapore will host the Spring School on ``Fluid Mechanics and Geophysics

of Environmental Hazards ''during 19 April -- 2 May, 2009 and fund support

for students are available.

Overview:

Environmental hazards, such as tsunamis triggered by earthquakes, tropical

cyclones, monsoon flooding, volcanic eruptions and landslides, are all too

familiar in Asia and the Pacific region, and have been the cause of

catastrophic disasters. These hazards are a consequence of mechanical

processes in the earth, ocean and atmosphere, and in order to understand

them and hence to develop well-informed strategies for the mitigation of

future disasters, it is necessary to develop sound scientific theory based

on geophysical observations and data, the principles of fluid and solid

mechanics, and an appropriate combination of mathematical and

computational analysis.

This School is intended to focus on fluid mechanical aspects, and is aimed

at students who have already graduated in mathematics, physics or

engineering, and who wish to undertake research in

this broad area. It is intended to bring students rapidly to current

research frontiers in the fluid mechanics of environmental hazards. The

School will start with introductory and motivational lectures on the

fundamentals of geophysical fluid dynamics, and on geophysical hazard and

risk in atmosphere and ocean contexts, and will then focus on four

specific environmental hazards: (i) typhoons and tropical cyclones; (ii)

monsoons and flooding; (iii) tsunamis; and (iv) pollution of atmosphere,

ocean and the urban environment.

The School will include workshop activity in which groups of students will

study key papers cited by the lecturers, and will be encouraged to

identify and formulate new model problems that need to be solved in each

of the above four areas. In this way, it is envisaged that the students

will be fully involved in active and collaborative research activity.

Fund support for students:

Student registration is now invited. Grants to cover travel and local

subsistence costs will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applications

from students resident in Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Korea,

Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as

Singapore, are particularly encouraged. Limited places may be available

for applicants from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, or further afield.

Abstract:

Patient-specific modeling of blood vessel anatomy and hemodynamics is a

promising tool that may aid clinicians in their decision-making and, as

such, it is a current hot-topic in computational life-sciences. In this

summer school we will focus on two tools, VMTK for creating

patient-specific geometries and FEniCS for performing flow computations.

Particular emphasis is put on hands-on sessions in which participants will

learn to master the tools under guidance by their very creators.

The Institute of Applied Mathematics at the Technische Universitaet Dortmund

(Germany) offers a position for a researcher at the Chair of Scientific

Computing (Professor H. Blum, http://www.mathematik.uni-dortmund.de/lsx).

Salary will be according to TVL 13 (100%) on the German salary scale for the

public service. The position is limited for 2 years, an extension will be

possible.

The successful candidate will work on a project in the newly established

Collaborative Research Centre SFB / TR 73. Major duties include the

development, analysis and implementation of finite element based methods for

problems in forming technology, whose efficiency relies on an adaptive choice

of the underlying physical model.

Required qualifications include a M.Sc. or Diploma in mathematics or an allied

field and knowledge about mechanical modelling and discretisation techniques

for the corresponding partial differential equations in the context of the

finite element method. Further, some experiences of programming with object

oriented programming languages is required. Additionally, knowledge of the

mathematical theory and analysis of adaptive methods and of elastoplastic

deformation of metallic materials would be an advantage. We expect the

successful candidate to cooperate in an interdisciplinary way with engineers

from different areas of forming technology.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. M. Stiemer, Technische

Universitaet Dortmund, Fak. Mathematik, LS X, D-44221 Dortmund (e-mail:
