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

http://shop.solarcrestpublishing.com/Elements-of-Problem-Solving-hardcover-9780985062750.htm

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.

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.

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.

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

poster session.

The meeting is funded by the CANPDE project

cover travel costs of UK-based early-career researchers.

Workshop Celebrating 40 Years of Nested Dissection

Location: University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada

Date: July 22-23, 2013

URL: https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/conferences/nd40/

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 nd40@cs.uwaterloo.ca

<mailto:nd40@cs.uwaterloo.ca>.

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.

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

today.

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.
