Subject: Mondriaan 4.2: Sparse Matrix Partitioning Package

We would like to announce the availability of version 4.2 of the
Mondriaan sparse matrix partitioning package. Mondriaan can be used as
a (sequential) preprocessing tool for large parallel sparse
matrix-vector multiplications.

Version 4.2 contains several improvements and extensions:
- Improved load balance by moving free nonzeros after every
- Improved speed.
- A zero-volume search based on finding connected components before
bipartitioning, to perform easy splits quickly if they exist.
- MondriaanStats program to quickly determine the communication volume
and other statistics about a computed partitioning.

The package and related documentation can be obtained from:

Mondriaan is written in C and distributed under the GNU LGPL license.

Subject: Software Release: MORLAB 3.0

Version 3.0 of the MORLAB (Model Order Reduction LABoratory) toolbox
has been released. The toolbox is a collection of MATLAB/OCTAVE
routines for model order reduction of linear dynamical systems based
on the solution of matrix equations. The implementation is based on
spectral projection methods, e.g., methods based on the matrix sign
function and the matrix disk function.

The toolbox contains implementations for standard and descriptor
- Modal truncation
- Balanced truncation
- Bounded-real balanced truncation
- Positive-real balanced truncation
- Balanced stochastic truncation
- Linear-quadratic-Gaussian balanced truncation
- H-infinity balanced truncation
- Hankel-norm approximation
Also, matrix equation solvers based on the matrix sign function as
well as further subroutines for linear dynamical systems can be found
in the MORLAB toolbox.

For more details on this software, see:

Virginia Tech Department of Mathematics Faculty Position in High
Performance Computational Mathematics

The Virginia Tech Department of Mathematics anticipates a tenure-track
opening in High Performance Computational Mathematics with a start
date of August 10, 2018, at our Blacksburg, VA, campus. The successful
candidate will have a strong background in computational mathematics
and high performance computing. Possible specialties include, but are
not limited to, mathematical aspects of numerical linear algebra,

modeling, PDE solvers, uncertainty quantification, scientific
computing, scalable data analytics, or large-scale topological data
analysis. Application areas of interest include, but are not limited
to, geophysics, physics, biology, or economics. The successful
applicant will have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty across
the university on the Intelligent Infrastructure for Human- Centered
Communities Destination Area (
areas.html ). Priority areas of interest for this initiative include
modeling, simulation, analytics, and decision-support environments
that leverage modern high performance computing and big data for
quantitative understanding of large-scale systems. Appointment as an
Assistant Professor of Mathematics is anticipated, but exceptional
senior candidates will be considered for positions of Associate
Professor of Mathematics or Professor of Mathematics. Teaching and
service duties will be split between the Mathematics Department and
the Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA) program.
Job requirements include a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field at

Subject: Faculty Position, Operations Research and Information Engineering (ORIE)

Faculty Position in Operations Research and Information Engineering
(ORIE) Operations Research and Information Engineering (ORIE) is
available at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. A faculty
position in Operations Research and Information Engineering (ORIE) is
available at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. The position is
part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, and we particularly
encourage candidates whose work fits into Jacobs Institute
application-domain emphases in the areas of digital-physical systems
(especially in urban environments) and digital health technology. The
position is within Cornell University's School of ORIE, and applicants
with research interests represented within Cornell ORIE are welcome at
all levels, including tenured and tenure-track. The School consists of
a diverse group of high-quality researchers and educators interested
in probability, optimization, statistics, simulation, and a wide array
of applications such as e-commerce, supply chains, scheduling,
manufacturing, transportation systems, health care, financial
engineering, service systems, and network science. Cornell ORIE spans
both the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but the successful
candidate's teaching and research will be based in New York
City. (Interested candidates can apply for a Cornell Tech in NYC
position, a Cornell Ithaca ORIE position, or both, but the two
campuses have different application sites; please see the Cornell
Ithaca ad for the Ithaca application URL.) Candidates must hold a
Ph.D. in operations research, mathematics, statistics, or a related
field by the start of the appointment, and have demonstrated an
ability to conduct outstanding research at the level of tenure-track
or tenured faculty in Cornell ORIE. They must also have a strong
commitment to engagement outside of academia in ways that foster

filled. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, brief statements
of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact
information of at least three references. They should also identify
one or two top publications to which they have made significant
contributions. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell
Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages
