**Subject: Vectorising code to take advantage of modern CPUs**

It is possible to speed up computer programs running on modern

processors by making use of a technique called vectorisation. The basic

idea of vectorisation is that each core in a modern CPU can operate on

multiple values (i.e. a vector) simultaneously per instruction cycle.

A typical modern processor has 4 or more of these vector units (one

per core) where each vector unit can operate on up to 8 single

precision, or 4 double precision, values simultaneously. Thus, it is

possible to obtain speed-ups of up to 32 times using vectorisation

techniques on a modern quad-core processor.

I have collated a summary of techniques and tutorials on vectorisation

over at my blog.

**Subject: New GAMM Activity Group MSIP, Germany**

The aim of the recently founded new GAMM Activity Group "Mathematical

Signal- and Image Processing" is to foster communication and

collaboration of all researchers or groups interested in mathematical

signal- and image processing. One particular goal is to encourage

close interactions and collaborations between mathematicians, computer

scientists, and engineers working in all areas related to the broad

research field of mathematical signal and image processing.

This includes the application of, for instance, Applied Harmonic

Analysis and Frame Theory, Compressed Sensing, Geometric and

Topological Techniques, Mathematical Morphology, Partial Differential

Equations, Probabilistic and Statistical Methodologies, Variational

Methods, in the exemplary areas of Signal and Image acquisition,

Signal and image processing, Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning.

For our members we provide a newsletter in the area of mathematical

signal and image processing, and to particularly support our young

members, we provide a job forum. Besides an annual meeting of our

group, our members organize various sections at the main international

conferences as well as at the annual GAMM conferences. We also hold

close relations to other international groups with a similar research

focus. For more information, we refer to the website:

Computational Intelligence in Image Processing

Amitava Chatterjee and Patrick Siarry (Eds), SPRINGER

ISBN 978-3-642-30620-4. August 2012. 301 pp. Hardcover.

http://www.springer.com/engineering/computational+intelligence+and+complexity

/book/978-3-642-30620-4

Computational intelligence based techniques have firmly established

themselves as viable, alternate, mathematical tools for more than a

decade. They have been extensively employed in many systems and

application domains, among these signal processing, automatic control,

industrial and consumer electronics, robotics, finance, manufacturing

systems, electric power systems, and power electronics. Image

processing is also an extremely potent area which has attracted the

attention of many researchers who are interested in the development of

new computational intelligence-based techniques and their suitable

applications, in both research problems and in real-world problems.

Part I of the book discusses several image preprocessing algorithms;

Part II broadly covers image compression algorithms; Part III

demonstrates how computational intelligence-based techniques can be

effectively utilized for image analysis purposes; and Part IV shows

how pattern recognition, classification and clustering-based

techniques can be developed for the purpose of image inferencing.

Written for Engineers, researchers and graduate students in computer

science and fields related to image processing, operations research,

information technology, applied mathematics and electronics.

watermarking - evolutionary algorithms - evolutionary computing -

Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Geometric Mechanics

by Jared M. Maruskin, 2012

360 p., ISBN 9780985062705

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fields of

dynamical systems and geometric mechanics in a single volume. The

exposition is concise and clear, and is supplemented with a number of

illuminating examples and exercises. The text offers an ample amount

of flexibility: core sections from both parts of the text may be

reasonably digested in a single-semester introductory graduate-level

course, or the text may be covered in more detail over a two-semester

course. The text also discusses several new results that have yet to

appear in any other textbook, and each chapter concludes with an

application that can serve as a springboard project for further

investigation, projects, or in-class discussion.

In the first part of the text, we discuss linearization and stability

of trajectories and fixed points, invariant manifold theory, periodic

orbits, Poincaré maps, Floquet theory, the Poincaré-Bendixson theorem,

bifurcations, and chaos. The second part of the text begins with a

self-contained chapter on differential geometry that introduces

notions of manifolds, mappings, vector fields, the Jacobi-Lie bracket,

and differential forms. The final chapters cover Lagrangian and

Hamiltonian mechanics from a modern geometric perspective, mechanics

on Lie groups, and nonholonomic mechanics via both moving frames and

fiber bundle decompositions

To be held in within the 18th International Conference on Principles

and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2012) Quebec City, Canada.

Municipal leaders who run the complex network of diverse people,

expected services and aging infrastructure are on a constant search

for more efficient ways to analyze data, anticipate problems and

coordinate resources in their cities. Developing methods for

fulfilling such a need involves, among other things, data analytics

and intelligent sensor dissemination, modeling human demands and

operations and planning, often under uncertainty.

We invite submissions of a short abstract (not more than 4000

characters) describing original work on applications of methods, with

special emphasis on optimization, for "making our cities smarter".

Techniques and applications of interest include (but are not limited

to): Constraint Programming; Mathematical Programming; Hybrid

algorithms; Interconnection between Simulation and Optimization;

Intelligent transportation systems; Electric mobility; Smart grids;

Waste management; Urban planning; Natural resources management; Data

analytics; and Modeling human demands.

Note that registration at the CP2012 conference is necessary to attend

and present at the workshop. Abstracts can be submitted by email to

To be held in conjunction with the

18th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint

Programming (CP 2012), Quebec City, Canada

https://sites.google.com/site/minlpworkshop2012

This workshop has the purpose of bringing together scholars that work

on nonlinear optimization, in particular Mixed Integer Nonlinear

Programming (MINLP) problems, which combine nonlinear constraints with

integrality on one or more variables. MINLP and Constraint Programming

(CP) have a significant overlap of techniques, ranging from domain

reduction to implicit enumeration techniques to heuristic algorithms

for finding good feasible solutions. The workshop aims at attracting

both CP and MINLP practitioners to discuss new developments. It is

motivated by recent exciting results in both disciplines.

Invited speakers: Katya Scheinberg and Pascal Van Hentenryck

We encourage the submission of new challenging problems, especially

those that are not available in online libraries such as minlp.org,

GlobalLib, and MinlpLib. Note that registration at the CP2012

conference is necessary to attend and present at the workshop.
