The English translation, in U.S.S.R. Comput. MathsMath. Phys. Vol.

17, pp. 221-222, of the paper "AN ALGORITHM FOR THE MULTIPLICATION OF

TWO QUATERNIONS" by O.M. Makarov, contains a misprint in the main

formula (3), although the derivation is correct. The last two elements

should be swapped, so that the vector reads $[a_0b_0 a_3b_2 a_1b_3

a_2b_1]$, as can easily be checked by performing the multiplicaton

$[a_0 a_1 a_2 a_3] L_2$. The error already occurs in the Russian

original cited in the translation as Zh. vjkhisl. Mat. mat. Fiz.,

17,6, 1574-1575,1977.

Numerical Analysis:Theory and Experiments

by Brian Sutton

This textbook develops the fundamental skills of numerical analysis:

designing numerical methods, implementing them in computer code, and

analyzing their accuracy and efficiency. A number of mathematical

problems---interpolation, integration, linear systems, zero finding,

and differential equations---are considered, and some of the most

important methods for their solution are demonstrated and

analyzed. Notable features include the development of Chebyshev

methods alongside more classical ones, a dual emphasis on theory and

experimentation, the use of linear algebra to solve problems from

analysis, and many examples and exercises. exercises.

now organized by the University Mohammed I, the University of Granada

and the University of Turin.

The scope of the Conference includes, but it is not limited to

Approximation and modeling applied to environment sciences and natural

resources; New applications and developments in approximation methods;

Numerical methods for partial differential equations; Numerical

methods for nonlinear problems; Mathematical methods in image

processing; Optimization methods and applications to natural

phenomena; Computational statistics and applications; Mathematics and

computation in geosciences; Mathematical analysis of models in porous

media; Stochastic partial differential equations

MACMAS invites to present unpublished research advances in the form of

oral or poster communications. After pre-registration (now open),

manuscripts must be written in LaTeX format by using the provided

LaTeX template, without limitation of the number of pages. All

accepted papers will be published as a special publication with an

ISBN number (electronic edition). Selected papers will be considered

for publication in a special issue of Mathematics and Computers in

SIAM CSC20 provides a top-tier forum for presenting original research

on the design, implementation, application, and evaluation of

combinatorial algorithms and data structures that arise from problems

in computational science, computational engineering, and data science.

The conference will be held February 11-13, 2020, Seattle, Washington,

U.S. It will be co-located with SIAM PP20 conference, February 12-15,

2020. Research in CSC involves identifying a scientific computing

problem arising in a relevant application area, representing this

problem using a combinatorial or graph model, describing the

corresponding graph problem, finding an algorithmic approach to its

solution, and carrying out a theoretical and/or experimental analysis

of the approach. Contributions involving any aspect of this workflow

are welcome. Authors are invited to submit both full papers and

extended abstracts. All submissions must present original unpublished

research. Full papers may be up to 10 pages in length. The accepted

full papers will be included in the proceedings published by SIAM (the

same publishing platform is used by SODA, ALENEX, ANALCO, etc.). The

proceedings of the previous workshop, CSC18, are at

https://epubs.siam.org/doi/book/10.1137/1.9781611975215. Short

abstracts could be up to 2 pages in length and should describe

preliminary results for presentation as talks at the workshop, but

these abstracts will not be included in the proceedings. Submissions

should use the LaTeX macros at

http://www.siam.org/proceedings/macros.php (authors using other

software should adhere to the same double- column 11pt format).

The record of the earlier CSC Workshops is available at www.csc-

research.org.

Submission will be handled through EasyChair. Submission link:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=csc20

First submission deadline: August 1, 2019

Notification of Early Decision: October 1, 2019

Second submission deadline: November 15, 2019 (both new and

revised manuscript)

Notification of Final Decision: November 30, 2019

Applications are due by May 10, 2019. The call will remain open until

the positions are filled.

From: Professor Ted Johnson e.johnson@ucl.ac.uk

Date: April 16, 2019

Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow position to

work on the project "Stirring at the Walls - A dynamical boundary

model for the ocean". This work forms part of a joint NERC-NSF funded

project between Professor Ted Johnson at University College London and

Professor William Dewar of Florida State University on boundary models

for the ocean. The project will investigate the hypothesis that there

is a gap between the very high spatial and temporal resolution

required in global ocean models to accurately resolve the flow near

ocean boundaries and the lower resolution in both space and time

required to resolve the motion of the ocean interior. The aim is to

produce a dynamical boundary model that can exploit this gap to allow

more accurate simulations at lower computational cost while

simultaneously increasing our knowledge of boundary mixing processes.

Resposibilities: Carrying out vigorous, high-level research into

coupling nonlinear wave models for ocean boundary dynamics to global

circulation models. This should include investigating the extension of

the theory in the paper "A coupled model of interior balanced and

boundary flow" by Deremble, Dewar and Johnson [Ocean Modelling, vol

119, pp 1-12 (2017)] into more general scenarios. Desirable: Interest

and research experience in at least some of the following areas: the

theory of nonlinear wave dynamics, the numerical treatment of

hyperbolic equations, asymptotic analysis of geophysical equations,

global ocean circulation models. This post is based at UCL and

available from 1 July 2019. Salary will be UCL Grade 7, point 29-32,

which is 35,328 - 38,303 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. This

post is funded for 3 years in the first instance.
