Subject: New Book, The Elements of Problem Solving

The Elements of Problem Solving by Jared M. Maruskin

xiv + 116p.
hardcover ISBN: 9780985062750 list price: $29.95
paperback ISBN: 9780985062743 list price: $15.95

This concise volume seeks to address the silent void that university
students embarking on mathematical coursework inevitably face: How
does one apply ideas, concepts, and theory to story problems that at
first seem intractable? We pay equal attention to the abstract
aspects of problem solving as well as the practical. We discuss
common misperceptions of ability and pay close attention to the
attitudes and habits employed by successful problem solvers. We
reveal problem solving as both achievable and fun, and illustrate
these themes with specific examples and stories throughout the text.
We also enumerate simple, executable steps that can be implemented
when faced with virtually any new problem: understand the problem;
draw a picture; define variables; be consistent; utilize principles.
Far from trivial, these steps often lead novice problem solvers to
err. In aggregate, we hope you find this charming work to be an
indispensable guide on your journey and an effective means to
improving and maturing your problem-solving capabilities.

This text can be used as a supplement to the textbook for any
undergraduate course in mathematics (precalculus, calculus), physics,
or engineering.

Subject: Spring School, Matrix Functions, France, May 2013

International Spring School on
Matrix Functions and their applications (SSMF2013)
Laboratoire Paul Painlevé
University Lille 1, France
May 15-17 , 2013

Over the last decade one can observe a very important research
activity in the field of matrix functions, using tools both from
numerical linear algebra and approximation theory. Matrix functions
are useful tools not only in applied mathematics and scientific
computing, but also in various other fields like control theory,
electromagnetism or the research on complex networks like social
networks. This school includes four comprehensive 4h-lectures about
matrix functions and their applications covering different topics,
from theoretical and approximation subjects to computational aspects,
including applications like graphs, networks and linear control.

We cordially invite both confirmed reseachers and PhD students in
related fields to attend this spring school and to learn more about
this subject.

Subject: Nonlinear PDEs in Micromagnetism, Scotland, May 2013

Workshop: Nonlinear PDEs in Micromagnetism: Analysis, Numerics and
Applications. Edinburgh, May 13-15, 2013

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts from analysis,
numerical mathematics, modelling and applications related to
micromagnetism to stimulate discussion and to facilitate the exchange
of ideas across disciplines. We hope to identify areas where the
different disciplines could benefit from interactions with experts
from other disciplines and where such collaboration could lead to
significant advances in the solution of theoretical and practical
micromagnetic problems and nonlinear partial differential equations in
general. Although the focus of the meeting is on nonlinear partial
differential equations in micromagnetism, there is an overlap with a
range of related areas, such as, for instance, nonlinear stochastic
(partial) differential equations, Navier-Stokes equations, harmonic
heat flow and wave map equations, Maxwell's equations, linear and
nonlinear elasticity and plasticity, thin-film equations.

Confirmed speakers: Francois Alouges, Giorgio Bertotti, Gilles Carbou,
Roy Chantrell, Antonio DeSimone, Mark Freidlin, Ben Goldys, Martin
Hairer, Tony Lelievre, Roger Moser, Misha Neklyudov, Martin Ondrejat,
Thomas Schrefl

In addition, all participants are welcome to present their work in a
poster session.

The meeting is funded by the CANPDE project Some financial support is available to
cover travel costs of UK-based early-career researchers.

Subject: 40 Years of Nested Dissection, Canada, Jul 2013

Workshop Celebrating 40 Years of Nested Dissection
Location: University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada
Date: July 22-23, 2013

Contributed presentations are invited in all areas consistent with the
conference themes, which include but are not limited to sparse matrix
computation, ordering algorithms, graph partitioning, and application
of sparse matrix and graph partitioning algorithms. Those interested
in giving a contributed talk must submit a title and a brief abstract
not to exceed one page by email to

Abstract submission deadline: April 15, 2013 (extended deadline)
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2013

Nested dissection was first described by Alan George in a 1973 paper
in the SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis. The original algorithm
aimed at reducing fill in the Cholesky factorization of a sparse
symmetric positive definite matrix associated with a discretization of
a square domain, and was shown to be optimal in terms of nonzero and
operation counts, in the asymptotic sense. The year 2013 marks the
40th year since the publication of the original nested dissection
algorithm. A workshop will be organized at the University of Waterloo
on July 22-23, 2013 to celebrate this occasion. This workshop will
review the successes of the past, as well as looking forward to the
future. The workshop will feature both invited talks and contributed
talks. Further information will be available shortly.

Subject: Integral Eqn Meths Electmgn Scattering, The Netherlands, Nov 2013

On November 12 2013, the Delft Institute for Applied Mathematics
(DIAM), the George Green Institute for Electromagnetics Research (GMR)
and the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) will organize a workshop
entitled: INT13 An Integral Approach to Electromagnetic Scattering: A
workshop on recent developments in theory and applications.

The purpose of this workshop is three-fold. First of all it will
provide a forum for researchers in the field of time and frequency
domain integral equations to exchange new ideas and start new
cooperations, initiated by a number of invited talks by leading
experts. Furthermore, the workshop provides an opportunity to PhD
students to share the results of their research with more experienced
researchers, get feedback and extend their network. Finally, we have
planned a common exercise prior to the workshop, in which all
attendees of the workshop can participate. In this common exercise
four challenging test cases for time-domain integral equation solvers
are presented. We will collect the results in advance and present and
discuss them on the workshop. This will help understand the benefits
and shortcomings of the different approaches to formulating
time-domain scattering modeling through integral equations in use

All information on the event can be found on the website. If you would
like to attend, contribute or participate in the common exercise, do
not hesitate to contact the organisers.
