Subject: Vyacheslav Ivanovich Lebedev, January 27, 1930 - March 22, 2010

Prof. Vyacheslav Ivanovich Lebedev died suddenly on his way to work in
Moscow, Russia on March 22, 2010.

Prof. V.I Lebedev was a Ph.D. student of S.L. Sobolev. He worked at the
Kurchatov Institute and Soviet/Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), and
taught students at the Moscow State University and Moscow Institute of
Physics and Technology. He authored over hundred papers and several
books, most noticeably, "Numerical methods in the theory of neutron
transport" jointly with G.I. Marchuk and "Functional Analysis in
Computational Mathematics," based on his lectures. He graduated over 15
Ph.D.'s.

Prof. V.I Lebedev was a recipient of prestigious local awards: the
Soviet State award in 1986-7 and the Gold Chebyshev RAS medal in 2002-3.
There were supposedly publication and travel restrictions because of his
work at the Kurchatov Institute. E.g., he was invited to give lectures
at a NATO summer school some time in mid-80s, which he laughed at (for
evident to him, but apparently not to the NATO inviters, reasons), and
sent a polite declination "due to some circumstances." Perhaps, his work
was not as well known world-wide as it deserved partially because of that.

Prof. V.I Lebedev worked in many areas of computational and applied
mathematics, ranging from software development for nuclear reactors
modeling to approximation by polynomials, from quadrature on a sphere to
numerical solution of stiff systems of PDEs, from domain decomposition
to finite-difference methods, from iterative solvers to parallel
computing. He even contributed to finding roots of cubic equation, see
Soviet J. Numer. Anal. Math. Modelling 6 (1991), no. 4, 315--324.

I was very lucky to have V.I Lebedev as my boss in 1981-1992 and as a
Ph.D. adviser in 1985. His great knowledge, genuine honesty, and natural
integrity will be remembered.

Subject: Contest: Designing an electricity distribution network

A game, jointly organized by the French Federation for Mathematical
Games, Societe de Calcul Mathematique SA and RTE (Electrical
Transportation Network, France) starts on April 1st, 2010. Given 6
electricity plants and 15 cities, one has to design the network with
smallest cost, connecting the plants and the cities. The network has
to be redundant, which means that all cities must still be served,
even if a component breaks down. The game receives 2,000 Euros of
total prizes. Answers must be sent before June 30th. Complete
description of the data can be found on SCM's web site www.scmsa.com,
both in English and in French.

Subject: Version 2.4 of Tensor Toolbox for MATLAB released

Tensor Toolbox for MATLAB Version 2.4

Tensors (also known as mutidimensional arrays or N-way arrays) are used in a
variety of applications ranging from chemometrics to psychometrics. The
MATLAB
tensor toolbox provides for manipulating dense, sparse, and structured
tensors
using MATLAB's object-oriented features.

Version 2.4 adds optimization-based methods for calculating CP (even with
missing data); the new functions require the Poblano Toolbox for Matlab,
available separately. For more information on the Tensor Toolbox for MATLAB
Version 2.4, visit

CMMSE 2010
10th Conference on Computational and Mathematical Methods in Science and
Engineering
June 26 - 30, 2010, Almeria, Spain

CMMSE 2010 will take place at the Hotel Barcelo Caba de Gata, Almeria in
Andalucia, Spain during the period June 26 - 30, 2010; website
http://www.math.wisc.edu/cmmse/index.html .

The conference will contain a number of themes, including a general one
on the numerical solution of partial differential equations. Within
this theme I have recently been asked to help to organise a session on
"Numerical solution of PDE's, error estimation and reliability". My
thinking is that there is much recent important FE work on a posteriori
error estimates, goal oriented error estimation, verification and
validation, and talks on these topics will make up an interesting
session.

I would like to invite you, your colleagues and students to contribute
talks to this session. The length of the talks is 25 minutes including
questions, and it is anticipated that the conference lecture sessions
will start on the morning of Sunday June 27. If you and/or your
colleagues are interested in contributing to the session, please respond
to me on john.whiteman@brunel.ac.uk as above as soon as possible.
Details of the conference, registration etc can be found on the website
as above.

Call for Participation: Researchers and practitioners in many fields such as
machine learning, computer vision, bioinformatics and robotics are
increasingly faced with problems that require understanding and learning
from
high dimensional data. In such problems, manifold learning and related
methods
provide a compelling suite of techniques that can exploit local
structure in data to learn better models, learn better input-output
relationships and reduce the computational complexity of learning.

The goal of the symposium is to promote and discuss research developments in
manifold learning, research on related approaches and applications to novel
problems. Topics of interest include:
Theory and analysis of manifold based approaches:
Theoretical limitations of current algorithms
Dimensionality estimation
Novel similarity/distance metrics
Harmonic analysis
Topological approaches
Parameterizations and embeddings
Lie groups and other geometric structures.
Related approaches:
Compressive sensing
Graph based methods
Bayesian models and other statistical techniques
Applications of manifold learning and related approaches:
Novel problems in AI, bioinformatics, computer vision, NLP,
robotics, social network analysis
Applicability and scalability of manifold learning
algorithms to
real world problems

Submissions: We invite submissions for original papers that introduce new
research developments, directions, frameworks, results, etc. in these and
related areas. Potential participants may submit full papers (up to 8
pages in
length in AAAI format) or short papers (extended abstracts, 1-2 pages in
length) by May 14, 2010 sent electronically via the online submission site:

Grant Complex Interfacial Flows: From the Nano- to the Macro-Scale under
the supervision of Dr. S. Kalliadasis.

The project concerns the theoretical formalism of dynamic density
functional
theory of non-uniform fluids. Of particular interest is a liquid-gas
interface in contact with a solid substrate. The ultimate aim is the
development of a rigorous microscopic approach for the description of such
interfaces based on first principles.

The successful candidate should have a PhD (or equivalent) in Applied
Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, or other related area and a strong
foundation on general mathematical modelling, mathematical techniques
(analytical and numerical) and thermodynamics/statistical mechanics. A good
knowledge of density functional theory is highly desirable.

He/she will join a highly interdisciplinary team working on a wide
variety of
exciting projects at the interface between applied mathematics and
engineering science fundamentals.

If you would like to discuss the project, please contact Dr. Serafim
Kalliadasis at S.Kalliadasis@imperial.ac.uk, Tel: +44-(0)-20-7594-1373,
postal address: Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College,
London

Subject: PhD/Postdoc Position, Applied Analysis Group, University Osnabrueck

We are currently offering a PhD/Postdoc position (Salary scale according
to 13
TV-L) in Mathematics at the Chair of Applied Analysis of the University of
Osnabrck, Germany, starting from June 1st, 2010.

The employment will be based on the pool of applicants and their respective
qualifications, either as a PhD position (50%) or as a Postdoc position
(100%)
for a period of two years; an extension is possible.

A master degree in mathematics with outstanding grades is expected. There is
the possibility for a doctorate or postdoc lecture qualification,
respectively.

A central theme of the project "Multiscale representation systems for
optimally sparse encoding and analysis of geometric features in
3-dimensional
signals", which this position is part of, will be the development,
mathematical analysis and computer implementation of multiscale systems for
continuum and digital 3D data.

A background in applied and computational harmonic analysis and good
programming skills are a must.

Please apply by sending your curriculum vitae and certificates (preferably
electronically as pdf-files) to Prof. Dr. Gitta Kutyniok
(kutyniok@uni-osnabrueck.de), University of Osnabrck, Institute for
Mathematics, 49069 Osnabrck, by April 30th, 2010.
