Subject: Historic Lanczos tapes now available online

On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of Cornelius Lanczos's birth
the NA group at Manchester is delighted to make available online a
series of video tapes produced in 1972:

These historic tapes show Cornelius Lanczos talking about his
fascinating and restless life as numerical analyst and inventor of the
tau method, (re-) discoverer of the fast Fourier transform and
singular value decomposition, and of course, inventor of the Lanczos
algorithm. There are three tapes, and we think that in particular the
first tape will be of great interest to the NA community.

Subject: FDLIBM and its maintenance

I recently made some changes in FDLIBM to avoid integer overflow and
would like to have these changes including in the library. It is not
obvious to me which organization maintains the library currently.

Subject: New Journal, Jounal of Complex Networks

Oxford University Press has launched a new journal entitled Journal of
Complex Networks. The journal is devoted to the analysis and
understanding of complex networks and its applications in diverse
fields. Complex networks are loosely defined as networks with
nontrivial topology and dynamics, which appear as the skeletons of
complex systems in the real-world. The journal covers everything from
the basic mathematical, numerical analysis, physical and computational
principles needed for studying complex networks to their applications
leading to predictive models in molecular, biological, ecological,
informational, engineering, social, technological and other systems.

The submission of manuscripts in Latex or Word is carried out
electronically and the journal promises a speedy manage of all
manuscripts submitted. You can obtain more information at the journal

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at George Mason University
will host a two-year multidisciplinary REU program in computational
mathematics and nonlinear dynamics of biological, bio-inspired and
engineering systems from June 3 - Aug 2, 2013 . This nine-week summer
program will expose twelve highly qualified undergraduate students and
two K-12 teachers to advanced topics in mathematics, problem-solving,
visualization techniques and applications to bio-inspired and
engineering systems. Selected problems range from Aneurysm mechanics
and bioinformatics to Modeling of Micro Air Vehicles, Design of
photovoltaic nanodevices, Porous substrates and Phase diagram
calculation for materials engineering applications, as well as the
design of efficient educational tools. Through these research
problems, we hope to encourage students and teachers to learn by
discovery and enhance their understanding of the multidisciplinary
role of mathematics in engineering, science and medicine. The metro
region of Washington, DC is a particularly fertile area for research
and work opportunities, including consulting, teaching and government.

Applicants must be undergraduate students with a good academic record
preferably completing their junior year by June 2013. Students
intending to pursue careers in teaching and mathematics education are
also encouraged to apply. Financial support for students include a
stipend of $3,375, free on- campus housing and meals, and a travel

track of invited talks and a poster session.

A poster session will be held the first evening of the workshop (July
22). All workshop participants are invited to submit a poster
abstract. There will be an award for the best poster presented by a
student or postdoctoral researcher. To submit an abstract, please
email a two page PDF containing a detailed abstract of the poster to by April 1, 2013. Space for posters may be

Call for submissions: Numerical Methods for Differential-Algebraic
Equations and Applications at AMMCS 2013, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada,
August 26-30, 2013,

Organizers: Andreas Griewank (Humbold University, Germany), Ned
Nedialkov (McMaster University, Canada), and John Pryce (Cardiff
University, UK)

Many physical systems are naturally described by systems of
differential-algebraic equations (DAEs). This minisymposium is
devoted to recent developments in methods and software for DAEs.
Topics include index determination, symbolic-numeric techniques,
numerical integration schemes, and in particular schemes for
high-index DAEs; schemes for structural analysis and integration using
automatic differentiation. Methods for validated solution of ordinary
differential equations by differential inequalities/inclusions are of
