Subject: New Book, Multigrid Techniques, Revised Edition

Announcing the May 24, 2011, publication by SIAM of:
Multigrid Techniques: 1984 Guide with Applications to Fluid Dynamics,
Revised Edition, by Achi Brandt and Oren Livne

2011 / xxii + 218 pages / Softcover / 978-1-611970-74-6 / List Price
$79.00 / SIAM Member Price $59.30 / CL67

This classic text presents the best practices of developing multigrid
solvers for large-scale computational problems in science and
engineering. By representing a problem at multiple scales and
employing suitable interscale interactions, multigrid avoids slowdown
due to stiffness and reduces the computational cost of classical
algorithms by orders of magnitude.

Starting from simple examples, this book guides the reader through
practical stages for developing reliable multigrid solvers,
methodically supported by accurate performance predictors. The revised
edition presents discretization and fast solution of linear and
nonlinear partial differential systems; treatment of boundary
conditions, global constraints and singularities; grid adaptation,
high-order approximations, and system design optimization;
applications to fluid dynamics, from simple models to advanced
systems; new quantitative performance predictors, a MATLAB=AE sample
code, and more.

This book will be useful to practitioners and researchers, as well as
students and instructors, in many areas of computational science and
engineering, applied mathematics, and numerical analysis.

Subject: GPU Computing, PDP 2012, Germany, Feb 2012

Special Session on GPU Computing and Hybrid Computing at PDP 2012
February 15-17, 2012, Garching/Munich, Germany
Special Session:

Scope: For the next decade, Moore's Law is still going to bring higher
transistor densities allowing Billions of transistors to be integrated
on a single chip. However, it becomes obvious that exploiting
significant amounts of instruction-level parallelism with deeper
pipelines and more aggressive wide-issue superscalar techniques, and
using most of the transistor budget for large on-chip caches has come
to a dead end. Especially, scaling performance with higher clock
frequencies is getting more and more difficult because of heat
dissipation problems and too high energy consumption. The latter is
not only a technical problem for mobile systems, but is even going to
become a severe problem for computing centers because high energy
consumption leads to significant cost factors in the budget. For the
moment, improving performance can only be achieved by exploiting
parallelism on all system levels. Multicore architectures like
Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) offer a better performance/Watt ratio
than single core architectures with similar performance. Combining
multicore and coprocessor technology promises extreme computing power
for highly CPU-time-consuming applications like image processing.

Topics: GPU computing, multi GPU processing, hybrid computing;
programming models, programming frameworks, CUDA, OpenCL,
communication libraries; mechanisms for mapping codes; task
allocation; fault tolerance; performance analysis; applications: image
processing, signal processing, linear algebra, numerical simulation.

Postdoctoral Research Position in Computational Imaging at Tufts

A postdoctoral researcher is sought in the area of computational
imaging to support the project "Advanced Image Formation for Diffuse
Optical Tomography (DOT): As part of a larger program in the area of
breast cancer detection using optical tomography, the objective of
this project is the development and deployment of image formation
methods for the imaging of breast cancers from hyperspectral DOT data
sets (i.e., data collected from over 100 narrowly spaced wavelengths
in the near infrared). Geometric inversion techniques based on
recently developed level set ideas are to form the basis for the
inversion methods. The forward problem will require efficient
solution of multiple large-scale discretized PDEs. In addition to
large-scale algorithm development, a primary objective is the
processing and analysis of clinical data being developed under a
separate portion of the overall project. Initial funding for one
year, with the possibility of annual renewal, subject to performance
review, for up to 5 years. A PhD and relevant expertise in one or
more of the following is expected: computational inverse problems,
applied mathematics or scientific computing with experience in
computational PDEs, numerical linear algebra, and/or optimization.
Previous interdisciplinary project experience a plus. If interested,

Subject: Postdoc Position, Univ of Groningen

The project PREdictability of KURoshio current path transitionS
(PREKURS) is a joint project from the Universities of Utrecht
(Prof. H.A. Dijkstra) and Groningen (Dr. F.W. Wubs). The Kuroshio
current near the Japanese coast in the North Pacific Ocean undergoes
decadal time scale transitions between different paths. The aim of
this project is to assess the predictability of these path transitions
and to determine the effects of the large-scale (equivalent)
barotropic instabilities, meso-scale eddies and wind-stress variations
on this predictability.

In the project we will use a combination of direct numerical
simulation, stochastic parameterization of the effects of meso-scale
eddies, techniques from the theory of random dynamical systems and
data-assimilation methods to analyse the flows in one- and two-layer
shallow water models of the Kuroshio Current. Part of this work will
be done by a postdoc in Utrecht (already appointed). The postdoc in
Groningen will concentrate on the stochastic parameterization of
meso-scale eddies and the numerical techniques to tackle the
stochastic partial differential equations efficiently.

Candidates should hold a PhD-degree in applied mathematics or physics;
have a good knowledge of numerical mathematics, especially for CFD;
have good programming skills; have experience with stochastic analysis
and/or oceanography; have demonstrated a potential to carry out
creative and independent research, and to publish in the peer-reviewed

The candidate is offered a full-time position for one year with a
possible two year extension. We like to receive a letter of motivation
in which you describe why you are interested in this project, your
curriculum vitae (including selected publications), the names and
e-mail addresses of two referees. Applications should be send to before juli 11, 2011.

Subject: Master Projects, Sci Comp, Research Center Juelich

Packed bed chromatography is one of the most important unit operations
for the industrial separation and purification of biopharmaceutical
products. Mathematical chromatography models involve stiff and
nonlinear partial differential equations on complex and highly
non-convex geometries. Members of the Institute of Bio- and
Geosciences 1 (IBG-1), Research Center Juelich, are currently
developing high performance tools for simulating such separation
processes on the J=FClich supercomputers JUROPA and JUGENE.

To support this development, we seek qualified and highly motivated
Master students from the fields of mathematics or computational
engineering science. A sound background in numerical methods for
partial differential equations (i.e. finite elements/finite volumes)
is essential for this project.

We offer to work on state-of-the-art scientific computing applications
in a highly interdisciplinary team. The specific outline of the thesis
is flexible and can be adjusted to the candidate's time frame (6=969
months) and interests. The project can be arranged in cooperation with
the Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems (CATS), RWTH
Aachen University.
