Subject: Miki Neumann, 1946-2011

Michael ("Miki") Neumann, head of the math department at the
University of Connecticut Storrs, died suddenly on April 21, 2011 at
the age of 64. Miki was internationally known for his research in
numerical linear algebra and matrix theory. He published more than
150 papers in this field, as well as a book, "Introduction to Local
Spectral Theory" with Kjeld Laursen. At the time of his death, he was
working on another book.

Miki Neumann was the Stuart and Joan Sidney Professor of Mathematics
and Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at UConn,
as well as a member of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and
Sciences. He was a generous and kind man, who was supportive of
younger colleagues and devoted to his students. He is deeply missed
by all of us who were touched by his wisdom, kindness and humor.

Miki is survived by his wife Helen Neumann; his son, Joseph
M. Neumann, and his wife Rachel; his daughter, Rachel M. Neumann, and
her husband Kuba Glazek; and a sister Orna Neumann.

linear and multilinear algebra and optimization with applications to
areas such as informatics and machine learning. Danny has been engaged
with the NA Digest for more than five years as an occasional editor,
and he has graciously agreed to become the regular editor.

Of course, the NA Digest would not exist without the support of the
Jack Dongarra's Innovative Computing Laboratory (especially Don Fike
and Paul Peltz) at the University of Tennessee. The contributions of
Jack's group has been an integral part of the NA Digest for more than
two decades, providing the infrastructure for more than 8000

Thanks to all of you for your words of support through the years and,
more importantly, your many submissions.

Subject: First release, reduced basis software package RBmatlab

RBmatlab is a MATLAB=AE library providing routines for the solution and
model order reduction of parametrized partial differential equations.
It is developed by the reduced basis groups of the Universities of
Stuttgart and M=FCnster, Germany.

The software focusses on evolution equations with finite element or
finite volume discretizations and provides a reduced basis framework
for reducing the model order of the numerical schemes. This includes
- basis generation with POD-Greedy algorithms
- reduced simulations
- efficient a posteriori error estimation and
- empirical operator interpolation

A tarball of the first release is now available for download under

The main features of the library can be best explored by running the
scripts from the 'demo' directory.

Best regards,

The RBmatlab developers (M. Dihlmann, M. Drohmann, B. Haasdonk,
M. Ohlberger and M. Schaefer.)

"This book is a valuable new reference on the subject of totally
nonnegative matrices and its insights will be much appreciated by a
broad community of readers interested in matrix theory and its
applications."--Charles Micchelli, City University of Hong Kong and

Totally nonnegative matrices arise in a remarkable variety of
mathematical applications. This book is a comprehensive and
self-contained study of the essential theory of totally nonnegative
matrices, defined by the nonnegativity of all subdeterminants. It
explores methodological background, historical highlights of key
ideas, and specialized topics.

Time: July 25th to July 29th, 2011
Location: Institut fuer Numerische Simulation, Bonn

Deadline for registration: June 19th, 2011
(20 seats available, still a few vacant)

Topic: Hierarchical matrices can be a useful tool for the treatment of
integral operators as well as the solution of linear systems arising
in the discretisation of elliptic partial differential equations.
Moreover, the representation of matrices in the hierarchical matrix
format is suitable for the efficient solution of matrix equations.
The aim of this winterschool is to teach the necessary theoretical
foundations of hierarchical matrices, but most of all the efficient
implementation of the algorithms. The practical realisation on the
computer will be the topic of exercise courses in the afternoon. The
participants will use the HLib library in order to assemble and solve
BEM and FEM systems. Lecture notes are available.

Subject: PhD Position, Economic MPC, DTU Informatics

DTU Informatics would like to invite applications for a 3-year PhD
position starting as soon as possible and no later than September 1,

In 2050, Denmark should be independent of fossil fuels. To reach this
vision, a significant amount of stochastic energy sources such as wind
power and solar power must be integrated into the energy system. The
energy demand must be made smart by adoption of cooling systems, heat
pumps, and electrical vehicles that consume and store energy when it
is abundant and therefore cheap. In addition conventional production
of power must be made much more flexible. To achieve this in an
economic efficient and robust manner, new algorithms for control and
optimization of large scale stochastic systems must be developed.

In this project, we develop new algorithms and software for Economic
Model Predictive Control of large-scale stochastic systems. We will
demonstrate the applicability and efficiency of these controllers on
smart energy systems involving controllable energy consumers and
producers as well as a significant amount of stochastic energy
producers. The resulting methodologies will be useful in realizing the
so called Smart Grid.

The supervisors for the project are Associate Professors John Bagterp
J=F8rgensen and Niels Kj=F8lstad Poulsen.

The project is part of the =93Smart & Cool=94 project. Smart & Cool is
collaboration between Danfoss A/S, DONG Energy A/S, Aalborg
University, and DTU Informatics. In total 4 PhD students will be
associated to the project.
