**Subject: Over 1 Million Served**

We just had our 1 millionth request come into the Tennessee netlib

server. Scott Morton was the requester,

1993 6 25 1557 [morton@shell.com] 6847 linpack / dgbsl

We currently receive about 1200 requests a day through netlib in

Tennessee. Netlib has changed in a number of ways over the past year.

We have added an X window interface called Xnetlib. If you haven't

tried xnetlib you can receive the source or executable for a number

of workstations by anonymous ftp'ing to cs.utk.edu and cd'ing to pub/xnetlib

then getting one of the following,

xnetlib.shar.Z

xnetlib.ds5000.Z

xnetlib.hp9000.Z

xnetlib.sun4.Z

xnetlib.rs6000.Z.

In addition, we have opened up the netlib machine in Tennessee

to anonymous ftp (netlib2.cs.utk.edu) and have modified the rcp

command on the netlib2.cs.utk.edu, so you can rcp from our machine

to any machine on the Internet provided you know the name of the file

you want, i.e.,

rcp anon@netlib2.cs.utk.edu:benchmark/performance performance

will get you a postscript copy of the Linpack benchmark report.

We are about to release a new version of Xnetlib which will include

a conference database server and a performance server.

We would like to get your feedback on what we have and your comments

on what you would like to see in the future.

Best wishes,

Jack

Teaching numerical analysis with Matlab

Many of you on the NA-NET have shown an interest in my MATLAB

materials for my textbook "NUMERICAL METHODS: for Mathematics,

Science and Engineering," 2nd Ed, Prentice-Hall, Inc. 1992.

If you already have a copy, I am interested in your comments.

I have a limited number of copies available for persons who want to

adopt the textbook in their course. Current supplements are:

1. A printed MATLAB Programming Guidebook for Numerical Methods.

2. IBM-PC and Macintosh disks containing Matlab m-file programs

which implement all the algorithms in the textbook.

If you need a copy please let me know.

**Subject: New Graduate Numerical Analysis Text**

I wish to announce the publication of my text, "Numerical Methods Based on

Sinc and Analytic Functions", by Springer-Verlag (ISBN 0-387-94008-1).

This text uses analytic function methods to derive the symbolic formulae

based on sinc functions, their approximation properties and error, and the

derivation of numerical algorithms based on these symbolic formulae for

solving a large class of problems stemming from applications. For example,

the DFT formula, which yields the well-known FFT procedure is one of the

formulas of the class, but there are many others, such as new methods of

interpolation, quadrature, the approximation of derivatives, the

approximation of one and multidimensional indefinite or definite convolution

integrals, the approximate solution of ordinary differential equations, and

the approximation of Hilbert transforms, over arbitrary intervals or contours.

Included also are new methods of solving elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic

partial differential equations, new methods of solving linear and nonlinear

Volterra, Fredholm, multidimensional, and Cauchy singular integral equations,

and new methods of evaluating and inverting Laplace and Fourier transforms.

For example, the complexity, i.e., the amount of work required to obtain an

approximate solution of a partial differential equation in d dimensions to

within a tolerance of E is usually of the order of {log(E)}**(2d+2).

The methods excel for problems with end-point singularities, for problems

over semi-infinite or infinite regions, or for boundary layer problems.

Multigrid Algorithms on the World Wide Web

FYI, there is some information on Multigrid Algorithms, their

application to lattice physics, and numerical analysis

available on the World Wide Web [WWW], a distributed HyperText

system (a network of documents connected by links which can be

activated electronically). Multilevel algorithms are fast solvers

used e.g. in numerical mathematics and lattice field theory simulations.

If you have a WWW browser up and running, try going to

http://info.desy.de:80/pub/www/projects/MG.html

If you have no clue what WWW is, you can go over the Internet with

telnet info.cern.ch

which brings you to the WWW Home Page at CERN. You are now using the

simple line mode browser. To move around the Web, enter the number

given after an item. To go to the MultiGrid documents, enter

go http://info.desy.de:80/pub/www/projects/MG.html

If you don't have Telnet, send the message HELP to

listserv@info.cern.ch for instructions how to retrieve documents.

The complete announcement for the MultiGrid and other informational

pages on WWW is available at ftp.desy.de [131.169.30.33] in files

**Subject: A Boundary Element Package for Integral Equations**

A Boundary Element Package

for Solving Integral Equations

on Surfaces in Space

This is to announce the availability of a package of programs for

solving boundary integral equations for Laplace's equation in three

dimensions. The programs in the package can be categorized as doing one

of the following tasks.

(1) Create and refine triangulations of smooth and piecewise smooth

surfaces in 3-space.

(2) Perform interpolations and integrations over these triangulations,

including approximating the surface itself by piecewise quadratic

interpolation in the parametrization variables.

(3) Numerical integration of surface integrals.

(4) Solution of integral equations with smooth kernel functions, with

the discretized linear systems solved by either Gaussian elimination

or two-grid iteration.

(4) Solution of boundary integral equations of the second kind for both

the interior Dirichlet problem and the exterior Neumann problem. The

discretized linear system is solved by either Gaussian elimination or

two-grid iteration.

(5) Solution of a nonlinear boundary integral equation which arises from

solving Laplace's equation with nonlinear boundary conditions.

The package is restricted to triangulations which are "quasi-uniform"; but

a future release (under development) will allow for graded meshes when

solving problems in which the solution is badly behaved at some points on

the boundary. The package is written in Fortran 77.

One of the main purposes of the package is to make it easier to carry out

experimentation with numerical methods for solving boundary integral

equations on smooth and piecewise smooth surfaces in 3-space. For

example, our integral equation codes are all for integral equations of

the second kind; but the package can easily be used to study integral

equations of the first kind. We welcome suggestions on additions to the

package or on any other aspect of the package.

To obtain the package, use anonymous ftp to our departmental network.

The finalists for the 1993 Gordon Bell Prize for significant

achievement in parallel processing are:

P. S. Lomdahl, P. Tamayo, N. Gronbech-Jensen, and D. M. Beazley of

Los Alamos National Laboratory for "45 Gflops Molecular Dynamics on

the Connection Machine 5".

L. Long and M. Kamon of The Pennsylvania State University and D.

Dahl, M. Bromley, R. Lordi, J. Myczkowski, and R. Shapiro of

Thinking Machines Corporation for "A Deterministic Parallel

Algorithm to Solve a Model Boltzmann Equation (BGK)".

Robert Means, Bret Wallach, and David Busby of HNC, Inc. and Robert

Lengel Jr. of Tracor Applied Sciences, Inc. for "Bispectrum Signal

Processing on HNC's SIMD Numerical Array Processor (SNAP)."

Gary Sabot, Skef Wholey, Jonas Berlin, and Paul Oppenheimer of

Thinking Machines Corporation for "Parallel Execution of a Fortran

77 Weather Prediction Model".

A large number of entries reported very high performance on Cray

Research, Inc. C-90 processors. These entries were too close in

overall quality for the judges to pick one so the fifth finalist

chosen is Cray Research, Inc., the first time the a company has been

so honored. Sara Graffunder, who coordinated many of the submissions,

will represent Cray.

Records were shattered in several areas. The 23 entries received for

this year's competition nearly doubled the previous high. The

performance reported was over 8 times the previous best, 2 entries

exceeding 60 billion floating point operations per second (Gf/s).

Even more impressive is the fact that 12 entries achieved sustained

rates over 25% of the theoretical peak performance of the machines

they ran on. Price/performance improved by almost 600% to 7.5

Gf/s/million dollars.

The finalists have been invited to present their work at a special

session to be held at Supercomputing '93 in November.

This Graduate Module is devoted to Shape Optimization and Design

one one hand, to Visual servoing and Mutational Equations on the other

hand. Both topics involve concepts of derivatives of shape maps

(associating vectors with subsets) and of set-valued maps (associating

subsets with vectors). This allows us to optimize shapes and to design

kinds of differential equations (called sf mutational equations) governing

the evolution of shapes and their control (visual servoing).

This Graduate Module is devoted to Differential Games, in the

framework of evolution problems controlled by several players. The choices

of strategies would be made either by mini-maximising intertemporal

criteria and/or by imposing power constraints on the states of the players.

Both points of view allow to takcle the em target problems.

**Subject: Call for Journal Papers, "Supercomputer"**

Call for papers

In the area of high-performance computing, "Supercomputer" is the

longest established journal. Started in 1984, the title immediately

gained an international readership offering news, original articles,

benchmarks and technical evaluations. The content focuses, not only

on the largest machines, but also on other high-performance systems

and concepts, such as massively parallel processing and distributed

computing.

Articles are short, refereed, and edited to ensure top scientific

quality and readability. In order to serve both authors and readers

the publication time is kept to a minimum and the journal is covered

by a number of abstracting services so ensuring a wide audience.

The current short life-cycle time of computer products and the short

time-to-publication of "Supercomputer" match very well. The journal

is therefore a very viable vehicle for the latest benchmark results,

early experiences with new systems, etc. In general the contents

covers:

News Topics

- Architectures

- Hardware and software developments;

- (Government) policies;

- Market developments;

- Supercomputer center presentations.

Contribution Topics

- Benchmarks;

- Applications of all kinds;

- Languages;

- Vector and parallel algorithms;

- Adaptation of software packages.

If you feel that you(r team) can contribute to one of those topics,
