Subject: Leonard Berkovitz

Len Berkovitz died suddenly but peacefully on October 13, 2009. Len
served as professor in the Mathematics Department at Purdue University
from 1962 until his retirement in 2002.

While at the Rand Corporation in the 1950s Len consulted for the Air
Force, where he helped introduce the novel idea (now common practice) of
using simulation methods for determining the outcome of tactical
engagements. He served as associate editor, editor, and managing editor
for the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization. Eleven students
received Ph.D. degrees under his supervision.

ISBN: 978-0-8176-4890-9 / Birkhäuser
Series - Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis

This state-of-the-art textbook covers four research directions in harmonic
analysis and presents some of its latest applications. It is the first work
that combines spline theory, wavelets, frames, and time-frequency methods up
to construction on manifolds other then Rn.
Written by internationally renowned mathematicians, the interdisciplinary
chapters have expository character, allowing the reader to understand the
theory behind modern image and signal processing methodologies. The main
emphasis is on the interdependence of the four modern research directions.
Each chapter ends with exercises that allow for a more in-depth understanding
of the material and are intended to stimulate the reader toward further
research. A comprehensive index completes the work. Topics covered include
frames and bases in mathematics and engineering, wavelets with composite
dilations and their applications, wavelets on the sphere and their
applications, Wiener's Lemma: theme and variations.
"Four Short Courses in Harmonic Analysis" is intended as a graduate-level
textbook for a course in harmonic analysis. It is also an excellent reference
guide for researchers and practitioners with diverse mathematical backgrounds,
including theoretical and applied mathematics, image and signal processing
engineering, and communication theory.

Subject: PhD position, University of Amsterdam

The Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics of the University of
Amsterdam has an opening for a PhD student in Mathematics.

Project: Adaptive wavelet methods for operator equations: Tensor
product approximations. The project is funded by the Netherlands
Organisation for Scientific Research. The research will be carried
out in collaboration with the research groups of the professors
Schwab (ETH, Zürich) and Dahlke (Universität Marburg).

The subject of this project is the development of adaptive wavelet
algorithms for solving time-dependent partial differential equations
(PDE's). With standard time marching schemes, an optimal
distributions of the grid points over space and time is generally
hard or even impossible to realize. Recently, an adaptive wavelet
method was proposed that applies to a simultaneously space-time
variational formulation of the PDE. Whereas keeping discrete
solutions on all time levels is prohibitive for time marching
methods, thanks to the use of tensorized multi-level bases the method
produces approximations simultaneously in space and time without
penalty in complexity because of the additional time dimension.
Meanwhile, for a simple model problem encouraging first practical
results have been obtained. The aims of the project are to extend the
approach to nonlinear problems and to the use of piecewise tensor
product approximation in order to be able to handle non-trivial
geometries. Depending on the background and the interests of the
student, the main focus can be either on tackling the many open
theoretical problems in the areas of approximation theory,
(functional) analysis and PDE's, or on the construction of an
efficient implementation of the algorithm.

Requirements: Candidates should have a Master's degree in mathematics
with specialism either numerical analysis, (functional) analysis or
partial differential equations.

Subject: PhD Position: Mathematical Biology, Michigan State University

Department of Mathematics at Michigan State University invites
outstanding students for PhD degrees in Molecular Based Mathematical

A major feature of 21st-century's biological science is its transition
from phenomenological and descriptive science to quantitative science.
Revolutionary opportunities have emerged for mathematically driven
advances in biological and life sciences. Currently, almost all funded
research in experimental biology is based on molecular level understandings.
However, most research work in mathematical biology nowadays is not
based on molecular level understandings. We envision a dramatic and
historic transition from the traditional mathematical biology to molecular
based mathematical biology in the next decade.

The department of Mathematics at Michigan State University has ongoing
research projects that span a wide spectrum of topics in new emerging
areas in molecular based mathematical biology. Our mathematical biology
research activities concern biological frontiers, including ion channels,
biomolecular solvation, protein folding, protein-protein interaction,
protein-DNA binding, signal transduction, gene regulation, molecular
motors, ATP synthase motors, drug design and discovery, etc. We make
use of a wide range of mathematical theories, methods and techniques,
such as differential geometry, partial differential equations, topology, linear
algebra, functional analysis, etc. We are interested in developing new
mathematical models, theoretical approaches, analytical algorithms, and
computational methods for problems in the general context of molecular
based biology.

We are seeking outstanding students who are interested in working at
the interface of mathematics and molecular biology. Our goal is to train
next generation researchers in molecular based mathematical biology.
Ideal students should possess MSc or BS degrees in mathematics or
other disciplines that have a strong background in mathematics. Most
importantly, an ideal student should have a strong desire to engage
in interdisciplinary research in molecular based mathematical biology.

Interested students should contact Prof. Guowei Wei via e-mail
