**Subject: John Francis of QR found**

John Francis and 50 years of QR

John Francis submitted his first QR paper almost 50 years ago in

October 1959. By 1962 he had left the NA field. When his algorithm was

judged one of the top ten algorithms of the 20th century in 2000 by

Jack Dongarra and Francis Sullivan, nobody alive in the mathematics

community had ever seen John Francis or knew where or if he lived.

Gene Golub and Frank Uhlig independently tracked John Francis down,

joined forces, and visited and interviewed him over the last couple

of years.

When first contacted, John Francis had no idea about QR's impact. He

is 74 years old now and well. Re QR, he remembers his math and

computational work of 50 years ago clearly. John Francis will be the

lead-off speaker at a mini symposium, held in his honor, at the 23rd

Biennial Conference on Numerical Analysis, June 23rd - 26th 2009 in

Glasgow to which everyone is cordially invited.

**Subject: PYRET 1.0: PYthon REstoreTools for image deblurring**

PYRET (http://www.mathcs.emory.edu/~yfan/PYRET/index.html) is a python package

for image deblurring. It is based on James Nagy's

Matlab package RestoreTools (http://www.mathcs.emory.edu/~nagy/RestoreTools/).

The syntax of PYRET is similar to RestoreTools, so the documentation of

RestoreTools still apply to PYRET. One can also consult the docstring of each

function or class for documentation.

One special feature that is in PYRET but not in RestoreTools is the inclusion

of image-dependent boundary conditions. We named this boundary condition

"synthetic boundary condition". In many cases, it gives better deblurring

results than classical periodic (circular) and reflexive (Neumann) boundary

conditions.

The structure of PYRET is designed to be easy to understand. It can serve

as an example of how to do scientific computation with Python.

You can download PYRET 1.0 at

http://www.mathcs.emory.edu/~yfan/PYRET/pyret-1.0.tgz

Some functionalities of PYRET are demonstrated on our online image deblurring

page (http://h9762.mathcs.emory.edu/iterativeMethods).

**Subject: Algorithms for Approximation VI, UK, Aug/Sep 2009 (3rd announcement)**

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

C. Budd (Bath)

Y. Kevrekidis (Princeton)

G. L. Litvinov (Moscow)

S. Rotter (Freiburg)

M. Slemrod (Winsconsin-Madison)

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

speakers. A small number of proposals for minisymposia is welcome. A

number of invited papers will be included in a proceedings volume to be

published by Springer.

The deadline for abstract submission and minisymposium proposal

submission has been extended to Friday April 10th 2009.

LaSCoG'09

5th Workshop on Large Scale Computations on Grids

Wroclaw, Poland,

September 13-16, 2009

http://lascog09.info.uvt.ro/

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Seventh

International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics

(PPAM 2009, http://ppam.pl).

Aim: The paradigm for execution of large-scale computations, whether

they originate as scientific or engineering applications, or for

supporting large data-intensive calculations, is to utilize multiple

computers at sites distributed across the Internet. In particular,

computational grids are collections of distributed, possibly

heterogeneous resources which can be used as ensembles to execute

large-scale applications. While the vision of the global

computational grid is extremely appealing, there remains a lot of work

on all levels to achieve it. In this context the LaSCoG workshop is

envisioned as a forum to promote exchange of ideas and results aimed

at addressing complex issues that arise in developing large-scale

computations on grids and running applications on them.

**Subject: Marie Curie positions at Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London**

Applications are invited for two PhD and one Post-doctoral positions funded

by the EU-FP7 ITN "Multiflow".

The main objective of the projects is to undertake the theoretical analysis

of soft matter fluid flows involving deformable interfaces between different

fluids and substrate-flow interactions. Such flows often encounter several

challenges and complexities at the boundary between Mathematics, Physics,

Chemistry and Engineering. The following possible projects are on offer:

•"Wetting dynamics of pure and other liquids": development of a mesoscopic

continuum theory for contact line motion that introduces intermolecular

forces into coarse-grained equations of motion.

•"Contact line motion over heterogeneous substrates": spreading dynamics

over chemically/spatially heterogeneous, deterministic/random substrates.

•"Complex thin-film flows": undertake the theoretical description of fluid

flows with various sources of complexity. Examples include: thin films with

chemical reactions, influence of chemical reactions on contact line motion

and reactive flows in Hele-Shaw cells.

•"Complex spatiotemporal dynamics on a falling film" with the ultimate aim

to advance our understanding of interfacial turbulence: description of the

process by which three-dimensional pulses drain the additional mass they

acquire during inelastic coalescence events with other pulses; statistical

description of the quasi-turbulent wave dynamics observed far from the inlet

and development of coherent structures theory for flow down a fibre.

Preferred method of application is online via the website

**Subject: A matrix translation of Robert Burns' poem "To a Mouse" (part 1 of 8)**

"The best-laid schemes of mice and men go oft astray" is a well-known

quote from the poem "To a Mouse" by Robert Burns. To enable his work

to be appreciated by a wider mathematical community, I've translated

his poem into the language of matrix computations (from Burns to

Higham, as you'll see in subsequent stanzas). Here's the first stanza:

Robert Burns original:

Wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie,

O, what a panic's in thy breastie!

Thou need na start awa sae hasty,

Wi' bickering brattle!

I wad be laith to rin an' chase thee,

Wi' murd'ring pattle!

Modern English translation (non-poetic):

Little sleek, cowering, timorous beast, O, what a panic is in thy

breast! You need not start away so hasty, with bickering complaining!

I would be loath to run and chase you, with murdering paddle!

Translation to matrix computations:

Wee, sparsest, QR-factored matrix

O, what a panic's in my math tricks!

Thou need na space thine eigs like hay sticks

Wi' ditherin' low bits!

I wad be laith to rin a quick fix,

Wi' murd'rin' page hits!
