**Subject: Standard Test Problems for Comparing ODE Solvers**

I need to test a new numerical integration method for the solution of initial

value problems of ordinary differential equations. For numerical examples, I

would like to use a set of non-stiff standard IVPs published in the literature

and used by other authors. The only such set I have found is [1], which is

rather old.

[1] Enright, W. H., and J. D. Pryce, “Two FORTRAN packages for assessing

initial value methods”, ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software, 13(1): 1--

27, 1987.

If you know of a more recent set, I would appreciate it if you would direct me

to it.

Thank you,

Artin Farahani

2009 Babuska Prize awarded

In December 2009, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the Union

of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the I. Babuska

Prize for the best work in scientific computing submitted by students

and young scientists. The Prize winner for 2009 is Dr Jakub Sistek

from the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the

Czech Republic in Prague. The work honored is his PhD thesis The

finite element method in fluids: stabilization and domain decomposition.

Further winners were delivered diplomas of honor. The second position

was awarded to Dr Vojtech Minarik from the Faculty of Nuclear

Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University

in Prague for his PhD thesis Mathematical model of discrete

dislocation dynamics. The third position was shared by Dr Jan Elias

from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Brno University of

Technology who presented his PhD thesis Discrete simulation of

fracture processes in disordered materials and Dr Jiri Hozman from

the Faculty of Science, Humanities and Education of the Technical

University of Liberec who submitted his PhD thesis Discontinuous

Galerkin method for convection-diffusion problems.

Further diplomas of honor were delivered to MS theses. The first

position in this category was taken by Martina Valtrova from the

Faculty of Environmental Science of the Czech University of Life

Sciences in Prague for her thesis Computation aspects of kriging in

chosen engineering problems. The second position was awarded to Milan

Hanus (Faculty of Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia

1994 by an outstanding Czech mathematician Ivo Babuska. He works in

the United States. Since 1995 he is at the Institute for

Computational Engineering and Sciences, University of Texas, Austin,

TX. His results in the finite element method belong to its basics.

**Subject: Call for Proposals: Understanding the "Omics" for Biological Threats**

NSF 10-006

Dear Colleague Letter:

Mathematical and Statistical Research for understanding the “Omics” (genomics,

proteomics, transcriptomics, etc.) of biological threats.

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 to secure the national defense. We have formed a partnership with

the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to develop the next generation of

mathematical and statistical algorithms for the detection of chemical and

biological threats. In FY2009, DMS issued a Dear Colleague Letter, NSF09010,

still in effect, that defined an Area of Emphasis within the Computational

Mathematics program. This Dear Colleague letter describes an additional new

Area of Emphasis for FY 2010.

The introduction of the next generation of massively parallel sequencing

technologies led to an exponential increase in the amount of available DNA

sequence information for biological threats. As sequence data is now produced

faster than it can be meaningfully analyzed, new approaches to the analysis of

this information is one of the most important recent challenges for the

mathematical sciences. New and improved mathematical and statistical methods

and high performance algorithms are needed to clear this bottleneck. Beyond

methods to sample and organize the sheer amount of data in a meaningful way,

challenges include development of quantitative methods and models to estimate

errors for the various sequencing platforms; algorithms and mathematical

estimates of the reliability of genomes assembled from short gapped reads;

approaches to distinguish sequence-determination errors from biological

polymorphism and mutation; and means to distinguish among multiple genomes

within a single dataset, particularly when those different genomes are

represented at vastly different abundance.

Challenges especially relevant to the area of bio-detection include the

development of tools and models for fast identification of the differences

between the genomes of individuals of a species, and for distinguishing

between naturally-occurring biological heterogeneity and newly-emerged or

artificially produced pathogenic sequences in complex samples. Mathematical

models and methods to estimate the significance of genomic variability as

related to the corresponding phenotypic variability belong to this area of

research as well.

Approaches originating from all areas of the mathematical sciences are welcome

including but not limited to probability theory and statistics, computational

mathematics, applied mathematics, algebraic geometry and topology.

The purpose of this letter is to make the mathematical sciences community

aware of this opportunity and to encourage the community to formulate ideas

and collaborations, and to assemble diverse groups of mathematical sciences

researchers who are actively working in these areas.

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. While experimental collaborations may

serve an appropriate supporting role for a project, proposals submitted should

primarily emphasize mathematical, statistical and algorithmic development

rather than experimental design. Proposals should include "ATD:"(Algorithms

for Threat Detection) at the start of the title and should be submitted to the

Mathematical Biology program

http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5690&org=DMS&from=home of DMS

within the submission window from December 18, 2009 to January 13, 2010.

2009 / xiv + 434 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-0-898716-88-7 / List Price

$89.00 / SIAM Member Price $62.30 / Order Code DC19

This second edition of the popular text by John Betts incorporates much new

material while maintaining the concise and focused presentation of the

original edition. The book describes how sparse optimization methods can be

combined with discretization techniques for differential-algebraic equations

and used to solve optimal control and estimation problems. The interaction

between optimization and integration is emphasized throughout the book.

It will appeal to users of optimal control working in fields such as the

aerospace industry; chemical process control; mathematical biology; robotics

and multibody simulation; and electrical, mechanical, and structural

engineering. It can also be a primary or supplemental text for graduate

courses on optimal control methods.

December 2009 / xviii + 434 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-0-898716-91-7 /

List Price $59.00 / SIAM Member Price $41.30 / Order Code OT117

This introduction to computer-based problem-solving using the MATLAB®

environment is highly recommended for students wishing to learn the concepts

and develop the programming skills that are fundamental to computational

science and engineering. Through a “teaching by examples” approach, the

authors pose strategically chosen problems to help first-time programmers

learn these necessary concepts and skills.

Each section formulates a problem and then introduces those new MATLAB®

language features that are necessary to solve it. The interplay between

programming and mathematics throughout the text reinforces the student’s

ability to reason numerically and geometrically.

Undergraduate students whose mathematical maturity is at the level of

Calculus I will find this book extremely useful, especially as preparation

for further courses in computing and mathematics. It can also be used as a

MATLAB reference at any level.
