Ninth International Conference on Mathematics in Signal Processing

17 – 20 December 2012, Austin Court, Birmingham, UK

Signal processing constitutes an important area for the application of

mathematical concepts and techniques fuelled, for example, by

developments in mobile communications, multimedia systems and digital

TV. The subject is still advancing rapidly in areas such as

non-linear/non-Gaussian/non- stationary signal processing, compressive

sampling, digital communication systems, iterative estimation

(e.g. turbo codes), blind deconvolution/signal separation, broadband

systems, compressive sensing and novel sampling schemes. The aim

of the conference is to bring together mathematicians, statisticians

and engineers with a view to exploring recent developments and

identifying fruitful avenues for further research. It is hoped that

the meeting will help to attract more mathematicians into this

important and challenging field.

The conference will follow the same successful format as before,

comprising tutorials, keynote addresses and six non-overlapping

sessions each featuring:

(a) two or three spoken papers with some tutorial content

(b) a related poster session for more specific research papers.

Plenary Speakers: John McWhirter, Jim Reilly, Sergios Theodoridis,

Paul White

Tutorials: Pier Luigi Dragotti, Sparse Sampling;

**Subject: PhD Position, Molecular Biophysics/Scientific Comp, Uppsala**

At the Department of Information technology and the Department of

Cell- and Molecular biology, Uppsala University.

Modern extremely powerful X-ray free-electron lasers have the ability

to produce diffraction patterns from a _single_ protein molecule or a

_single_ virus before it explodes and turns into a plasma. Femtosecond

extremely bright X-ray pulses simply outrun all damage processes in

the sample. Large amounts of diffraction data representing a

collection of cuts of the sample particle thus collected can be used

to derive a three-dimensional data set. The actual fitting of the

diffraction patterns into a consistent 3D structure is computationally

very hard and currently, diffraction data is produced at an increasing

rate.

The aim with this project is to produce computational tools that can

handle this important challenge. The project will be run as a close

cooperation between the Parallel Algorithms group within the Linnaeus

Center of Excellence UPMARC and the Laboratory of Molecular

Biophysics, a Center of Excellence of the Swedish Research Council.

In this inherently cross-disciplinary research project we welcome

outstanding candidates with a background in one or several of the

subjects Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, Parallel and

GPU-programming, Biotechnology/Bioinformatics and/or Molecular

Biology.

The Project: Numerical simulation of multi-material flows with ALE

methods

Compressible multi-material flows are encountered in many science and

engineering problems. Example applications include high speed solid

impacts, granular materials, and gas-fluid interaction. The modelling

of such flows requires the consideration of complex wave interactions

and material interfaces, and poses significant challenges for accurate

numerical simulation.

Historically, methods to solve such problems have been divided into

two classes: Eulerian approaches, which use a computational mesh that

is fixed throughout the simulation, and Lagrangian approaches, where

the mesh deformation is linked directly to that of the

material. Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) methods combine these

two approaches in order to exploit the benefits of each, without

suffering from their deficiencies.

Finite volume Godunov-type Eulerian methods have been well established

for some time. However, Lagrangian and ALE Godunov-type methods have

been much slower to evolve. This is largely due to the difficulty in

defining consistent nodal velocities for such element centred schemes.

The objective of this project is to research, develop and implement

higher- order Godunov-type schemes within the framework of an ALE

method.

These schemes would offer accurate and robust solutions for capturing

wave structures, such as strong shocks, contacts and phase

discontinuities, on arbitrarily moving grids. The resultant solvers

will be applied to practical multi-material problems and compared to

alternative schemes.

Funding

The project is sponsored by AWE (Aldermaston). Depending on the

candidate's qualifications and background, funding is available for 3

years (PhD) or 1 + 3 years (MPhil and PhD) of study at UK Research

Council rates. College and University fees will be covered and the

student will receive a stipend of £13,590 per annum. Note that
