Subject: Willem Hundsdorfer (CWI Amsterdam)

With sadness, we let you know that our colleague, Prof.dr. Willem
Hundsdorfer, passed away last Friday, Nov. 10, at the age of 63.

Since 1984, Willem was affiliated with CWI, first in the department
numerical mathematics where he built up an international reputation in
this field; he continued fundamental research in this field until
now. Since 2002, he was part of the group Multiscale Dynamics at CWI,
where he shared his expertise for developing simulations of electric
discharges that by now are widely recognized. Since 2009, he was also
full professor in part-time at the Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen.

He was a sharp and driven researcher, and he acted as journal editor
and conference organizer. And he was a social and caring person
towards PhD students and colleagues, with a fine humor and a tendency
to understatement. He was head of CWI's works council twice, and he
was CWI's internal person of trust for 12 years. We will miss him

The ceremony before the cremation will take place on Thursday,
November 16 at 14:00 at the aula of crematorium Westerveld, Duin- en
Kruidbergerweg 2-6, 1985 HG Driehuis, near IJmuiden, https://www.bc- After the ceremony condolences can be
offered at De IJmond Brasserie en Restaurant, Seinpostweg 40, 1976 BT

Subject: MFEM Version 3.3.2

Version 3.3.2 of MFEM, a lightweight, general, scalable C++ library
for finite element methods, is now available at The
goal of MFEM is to enable high-performance scalable finite element
discretization research and application development on a wide variety
of platforms, ranging from laptops to exascale supercomputers, see

It has many features, including:
- 2D and 3D, arbitrary order H1, H(curl), H(div), L2, NURBS elements.
- Parallel version scalable to hundreds of thousands of MPI cores.
- Conforming/nonconforming adaptive mesh refinement (AMR), including
anisotropic refinement, derefenement and parallel load balancing.
- Galerkin, mixed, isogeometric, discontinuous Galerkin, hybridized,
and DPG discretizations.
- Support for triangular, quadrilateral, tetrahedral and hexahedral
elements, including arbitrary order curvilinear meshes.
- Scalable algebraic multigrid, time integrators, and eigensolvers.
- Lightweight interactive OpenGL visualization with the MFEM-based
GLVis tool,

Some of the new additions in version 3.3.2 are:
- High-order mesh optimization with the target-matrix optimization
paradigm (TMOP) by Knupp et al.
- Implementation of the community policies of the Extreme-scale
Scientific Software Development Kit (xSDK).
- Integration with the STRUMPACK parallel sparse direct solver and
- Several new linear interpolators, five new examples and miniapps.

Subject: New Book, Functional Numerical Methods

George A. Anastassiou, Ioannis K. Argyros
Functional Numerical Methods: Applications to Abstract Fractional
Calculus, SPRINGER 2018

This short monograph is regarding applications of Newton-like and
other iterative methods for solving abstract functional equations that
involve abstract fractional derivatives. The functions we are dealing
with are Banach space valued of a real domain. These are studied for
the first time in the literature, and chapters are self-contained and
can be read independently. Various issues related to the modeling and
analysis of fractional order systems have gained an increased
popularity and the purpose of our book is to provide a deeper and
formal analysis on some issues that are relevant to many areas for
instance: decision making, complex processes, systems modeling and
control. The above are deeply embedded in the fields of engineering,
computer science, physics, economics, social and life sciences. An
extensive list of references is given per chapter. The monograph is
suitable for researchers, graduate students, and seminars of the above
subjects, also to be in all science and engineering libraries.

Subject: Surrogate Models for UQ in Complex Systems, UK, Feb 2018

Registration for this workshop is open through to 5 December 2017.

Our modern treatment of predicting the behavior of physical and
engineering problems relies on approximating solutions in terms of
physical and stochastic domains, particularly in the case of
uncertainty quantification (UQ), where the input data (coefficients,
forcing terms, boundary conditions, geometry, etc) are affected by
randomness. For higher resolution and accuracy, simulations must
increase the number of deterministic and stochastic variables, and
expend more effort resolving smooth or even discontinuous behavior
within each individual component. Simulating the entire complex
system at the level of fidelity that truly predicts the solution,
remains elusive outside of idealized situations. To combat this
resulting explosion in computational effort, surrogate models are
employed to quickly and efficiently predict the input-output map of
many complex simulations. As such, this workshop will be organized
around a set of themes in which surrogate models have become an
essential tool in enabling and accelerating UQ for a variety of
problems, including:
1. High-dimensional stochastic systems;
2. Inference, optimization, and control in the presence of
3. Stochastic multi-scale and multi-physics problems; and
4. Design of physical and computational experiments;

However, constructing accurate surrogates for such problems and
computing their predictions along with the uncertainties they
introduce, constitute additional challenges. This workshop will
explore a variety of approaches that have been developed to address
such challenges, including Gaussian processes, sparse interpolation
and projection, discrete least squares, compressed sensing, dimension
reduction, multi-fidelity formulations, Bayesian inference,
homogenization techniques, and atomistic to continuum coupling
methods. In addition to invited talks, a poster session will be
organized, as well as a two panel discussions. Please see the
workshop webpage for a list of speakers and tentative titles, and for
registration details. This workshop is the second event in a six-month
program on Uncertainty Quantification at the Isaac Newton Institute,

Subject: PhD Position, Reduced Order Modelling, NTNU, Norway

The KPN-project OPWIND (cofunded by the Research Council of Norway and
industrial partners) will develop knowledge and tools for optimizing
the operational control of offshore wind power plants. Such
optimization using state-of-the-art high fidelity simulation tools is
not convenient and efficient. There has also been an increasing demand
of computationally efficient real-time simulation tools. To this end
part of the current project focuses on developing Reduced Order Models
(ROMs) for aerodynamic applications.

These questions to be addressed are: How do we choose the simulation
set-up for high fidelity simulations so that we span the solution
space in an optimal way? Which method should be utilized to construct
the reduced order basis for the flow dynamics, from which we can
reconstruct the solution for a new scenario, based on available input
conditions? What are relevant quality criteria for the ROM in the
context of aerodynamics of wind turbines, and how can the
approximation properties of the ROM be optimized?

We seek a highly motivated individual with good analytical and
communication skills holding a Master's degree in applied/numerical
mathematics or corresponding education with a solid background in
finite element analysis. Familiarity with atmospheric flow and fluid
mechanics is an advantage. Applicants must have significant
programming experience ideally in C, C++ and/or Python.

PhD Positions available in Computational Seismic Imaging, Inversion

University of Texas at Dallas

We have openings for 4 new PhD positions starting in August 2018;
applications are due Jan-Feb 2018.

Our research group focuses on computational seismic imaging, inversion
and time-lapse monitoring using advanced wave-theoretic and
high-performance computational methods for seismic modeling, imaging,
and full waveform inversion (FWI); using active-source or passive
seismic datasets recorded in surface, borehole and ocean-bottom
arrays, including continuous recordings of ambient seismic noise. Our
research goal is to extract more information from seismic data than
can be achieved via traditional methods, by using more accurate
physics, enhancing signal/noise and resolution, and using the full
scattering coda in seismic wavefields to more accurately image and
monitor the most difficult complex fluid-flow and geologic
scenarios. Applications include hydrocarbon and groundwater
reservoirs, CO2 injection and storage, subsurface fluid flow and
stress transients, and monitoring of both natural and induced (micro)
earthquake seismicity. Applicants must have a strong background in
applied physics, mathematics and computation. Prior research
experience and a Master's degree is recommended.
