**Subject: New Algorithms for the Assignment Problem**

Is anyone aware of:

1. New algorithms for the optimal assignment problem that are

more efficient that Bertsekas' Auction Algorithm.

2. Algorithms that give the N-best assignments, not just the optimal

assignment.

Thanks,

Ira Hammerman

**Subject: FFT with Bessel functions**

Does anybody know if there exist numerical analog of FFT for

**Bessel** functions, i.e., when Bessel functions are the BASIC

functions in the decomposition? I need such FFT on Bessel functions

for decomposition of an arbitrary function in cylindric region.

I will be gratefull for any references and particularly for

fortran codes.

**Subject: Special Issue in Mathematical Programming**

Call for Papers

Special issue of Mathematical Programming Series B

Editors: Michael Overton and Henry Wolkowicz

Semidefinite programming (SDP) is an extension of linear programming,

in that the nonnegativity constraint is replaced by the condition

that a matrix be positive semidefinite. More generally, SDP is a special

case of programming over cone constraints. Recently, there has been great

interest in this area due to applications in e.g.: finding bounds and

good feasible solutions for hard combinatorial problems; min-max

eigenvalue problems; matrix norm minimization; and control and

systems theory.

Mathematical Programming Series B is dedicating a special issue to

Semidefinite Programming in recognition of the current interest and progress in

this area. Authors should note the benefits of publication in a

special issue --- a collection of high-quality related papers in one

volume, plus a guarantee of publication of accepted papers with

minimal time delay. Manuscripts are solicited on all aspects of

semidefinite programming, including theory, applications, and numerical

algorithms.

Authors should send four copies of their submission to one of the guest

editors

**Subject: Linear Matrix Inequalities in Control Theory**

CALL FOR PAPERS

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL

Special Issue on

LINEAR MATRIX INEQUALITIES IN CONTROL THEORY AND APPLICATIONS

Over the past few years, considerable research has been

devoted to solving control problems numerically by reducing

them to convex optimization problems, in particular to those

based on linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). In parallel,

many very efficient algorithms for numerically solving these

optimization problems have been developed. At this time, a

large number of control problems have been recognized to be

reducible to LMI-based optimization problems, and efficient

software tools for solving these optimization problems

exist.

Papers are solicited for a special issue of the

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL,

scheduled for July 1995, on LINEAR MATRIX INEQUALITIES IN

CONTROL THEORY AND APPLICATIONS. Recent advances in

applying LMI techniques to control theory and applications,

including, but not restricted to the following topics are of

interest:

Control system modeling and identification

Control system analysis and design

Practical applications

Software tools and packages

SIX copies of the manuscripts, should be submitted to Ragu

Balakrishnan or Eric Feron by JANUARY 1, 1995 for review.

Manuscripts must not be longer than 6000 words of text, such

that the length of the paper including figures, tables, and

reference is within 10 pages of the International Journal of

Robust and Nonlinear Control. For author guidelines, please

refer to a recent issue of the IJRNC, or contact the

guest-editors.

with 59 figures and 17 tables. Hardcover DM 128.

ISBN 3-540-57111-6 Springer-Verlag Berlin

ISBN 0-387-57111-6 Springer-Verlag New York

This book deals with the numerical approximation of partial

differential equations. Its scope is to provide a thorough illustration

of numerical methods, carry out their stability and convergence

analysis, derive error bounds, and discuss the algorithmic aspects

relative to their implementation. A sound balancing of theoretical

analysis, description of algorithms and discussion of applications is

one of its main features. Many kinds of problems are addressed. A

comprehensive theory of Galerkin method and its variants, as well as

that of collocation methods, are developed for the spatial

discretization. These theories are then specified to two numerical

subspace realizations of remarkable interest: the finite element method

and the spectral method.
