**Subject: New Book, A First Course in Numerical Methods**

Announcing the June 22, 2011, publication by SIAM of:

A First Course in Numerical Methods, by Uri M. Ascher and Chen Greif

2011 / xxii + 552 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-0-898719-97-0 /

List Price $95.00 / SIAM Member Price $66.50 / Order Code CS07

This new textbook is designed for students and researchers who seek

practical knowledge of modern techniques in scientific

computing. Avoiding encyclopedic and heavily theoretical exposition,

the book provides an in- depth treatment of fundamental issues and

methods, the reasons behind the success and failure of numerical

software, and fresh and easy-to-follow approaches and techniques.

The authors focus on current methods, issues, and software while

providing a comprehensive theoretical foundation, enabling those who

need to apply the techniques to successfully design solutions to

nonstandard problems. The book also illustrates algorithms using the

programming environment of MATLAB=AE, with the expectation that the

reader will gradually become proficient in it while learning the

material covered in the book. A variety of exercises are provided

within each chapter along with review questions aimed at self-testing.

The book takes an algorithmic approach, focusing on techniques that

have a high level of applicability to engineering, computer science,

and industrial mathematics.

Following the success of previous years, CSC/NAG are again running the

Autumn School "Core Algorithms for High Performance Scientific

Computing", 26 Sep - 30 Sep 2011 at the Centre for Scientific

Computing, Univ of Warwick.

Description: Many scientific calculations can be cast as problems in

computational linear algebra and optimisation. Powerful algorithms for

such problems form a common core of most scientific software. This

school will develop a solid grounding in the mathematics of these

algorithms; discuss the efficient implementation in a range of

standard libraries and demonstrate effective use in real,

high-performance scientific applications.

Aimed at: This school is ideal for beginning PhD students or Postdocs

in all scientific disciplines wishing to make effective use of

substantial computational resources to tackle new scientific problems.

Attendance is free to HECToR users and UK academics within the remit

of one of the participating research councils (EPSRC, NERC and BBSRC).

Further information is available at:

**Subject: Postdoc Position, Num Meth for Time-Int, KU Leuven**

Postdoc: numerical simulation of complementarity systems, with

applications to power electronic circuits

Power electronic converters make use of semiconductor components

operating at a high switching frequency to reach the desired dynamics

at a slower time scale. Modeling and simulation methods are

indispensable for the design and analysis of these converters. Because

of the large difference in time scales, non-smooth methods are needed

to make a fast simulation possible. Recent research results indicate

the potential of complementarity systems, a subclass of hybrid

systems, in modeling and simulation power electronic systems.

We have a vacancy for a junior postdoc (less than 5 years experience

after PhD) whose task is to develop numerical methods for

time-integration (simulation) and control of switched complementarity

systems. The emphasis lies on generic methods and software, whose

application is not exclusively limited to power electronic systems.

The postdoc position result from a joint project between the

Scientific Computing Research Group (htt://twr.cs.kuleuven.be) and the

Division Electa (http://www.esat.kuleuven.be/electa/) of the

K.U. Leuven. The requirements are a strong background in computational

mathematics, in particular numerical time-integration (simulation), a

strong interest in programming and strong collaboration skills. The

position will be initially offered for one year.

**Subject: Postdoc Position, Comp Ecology, Umea Univ, Sweden**

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to take on the numerical and

computational challenges arising in an international research

collaboration that aims to develop an evolutionary ecology vegetation

model capable of predicting vegetation structures favored under

different environmental conditions. The model is physiologically

structured and represented mathematically by a non-local partial

differential equation, i.e., by a PDE in which coefficients depend on

non-local properties of the solution.

A major objective of your work will be the development of a fast

solver for non-local partial differential equations and the

development of related computational tools required for simulations.

There is also scope for studying vegetation dynamics and for

developing algorithms and methods for studying phenotypic evolution in

physiologically structured population models.

The stipend is initially available for a period of one year, with a

possible prolongation for an additional year. The post-doc will work

in close collaboration with our international partners, including the

International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in

Laxenburg, Austria, and Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. The

position is expected to entail visits and secondments to one or both

of these institutions, possibly for durations of up to several months.

The application deadline is August 8, 2011.

how the energy is deposited, the chemical reactions taking place, and

the transport processes for the energy and the chemical species, and

in developing suitable numerical methods for solving the equations

describing these processes. The benefits of a successful project will

include enabling the growth of higher quality diamond products useful

in applications ranging from lasers to fusion reactors. The

successful student will spend approximately three months during the

course of the project at Element Six transferring the model so that it

can be routinely used within the company.
