**Subject: Charta of Free Electronic Access to Publications**

Charta of free electronic access to publications:

The EMS (European Mathematical Society) has set up

a committee to draft a Charta of free electronic

access to publications. I am on this committee and

would like to get some input from the NA-NET community.

Please respond either to me or to the electronic

internet address

ems-e-jour-committee@esi.ac.at

distributes every message it receives to all members

of this committee, which consists now of

bayer@grenet.fr (Eva Bayer)

brunovsk@dcs.fmph.uniba.sk (Pavol Brunovski)

chlebik@dcs.fmph.uniba.sk (Miro Chlebik)

cea@unice.fr (Jean Cea)

groetschel@ZIB-berlin.de (Groetschel)

guil@fourier.grenet.fr (Laurent Guillope)

jeltsch@sam.math.ethz.ch (R. Jeltsch)

amo@research.att.com (Odlyzko)

uimrozek@plkrcy11.bitnet (Marian Mrozek)

michor@esi.ac.at (Peter Michor, chair)

The first draft of such a charta has been proposed

Peter Michor and he has presented it at the

Conference on the Future of Mathematical Communications

electronic publishing MSRI, Berkeley, Nov. 30 -- Dec. 3.

First draft (shortened for Na-net)

The role of a printed copy of a journal nowadays is sitting in a

library waiting for an article out of it to be photocopied. A

conservative estimate is that on the average an article is

photocopied 50 times, all over the world, and read 25 times. To

typeset, print, and distribute it is a waste of human and natural

resources, the same service could be done via computer quicker

and more widespread.

There is an oncoming revolution on the use of electronic media for

scientific publication. New electronic journals appear, they are

FREELY accessible up to now, some existing journals open their files

for FREE electronic access, and some only to subscribers. There is

the possibility to lower drastically the overall cost of mathematical

publications, and the danger that we will have all the traditional

journals, new electronic ones, and that after some time the

electronic journals also start to charge for their access. If there

is no easy access to the mathematical literature, a lot of work will

be duplicated in the future.

The European Mathematical Society feels responsible for the health

and accessibility of the mathematical literature.

The rationale behind this charta is the following. We should

distinguish carefully between the final electronic version of a paper

into which besides the work of writing and refereeing only marginal

costs have been invested, and the printed and distributed version,

which makes use of a somewhat industrial process. The costs of the

former, since they are small, should be carried locally, by academic

institutions or libraries. Important libraries could adopt existing

journals and take over their costs up to the electronic product. Free

personal access to the electronic product should be ensured. The

costs of the latter industrial process should be borne by the

consumer (library) who prefers to have at hand a nicely printed

version. There will be not so few of them, perhaps.

CHARTA OF FREE ELECTRONIC ACCESS TO PUBLICATIONS:

1. The right of access to the electronic file of a paper which was

prepared in that way by the author or his institution lies with the

author(s).

2. If the author submits this paper to a preprint server or a

refereeing process he automatically acknowledges the right of free

electronic access to this paper to the (mathematical) public.

3. If a journal prints a refereed article the right to distribute and

sell this paper lies completely with the publisher of the journal.

This is called the RIGHT TO DISTRIBUTE. But the right of free

electronic access to the paper remains at the public.

4. Everybody who uses the right of electronic access to a paper is

entitled to print freely one copy of this for personal or restricted

use. He is not entitled to sell copies of this paper at profit. This

is called PERSONAL USE.

5. Libraries are entitled and asked to keep permanently accessible

files of electronically accessible journals, in order to ensure their

perpetuity, besides or without printed copies.

We ask authors, readers, institutions and libraries, profit and

non-profit oriented publishers to adopt the rules of this charta, for

the benefit of the science of Mathematics, and thus also for the

benefit of those commercial organizations serving it.

**Subject: Pentium Hypertext and the Sofware Taxi**

Mainly for the benefit of non-NA colleagues and for some local

computer store operators, I edited and collected commentary and test

codes for the Pentium FDIV bug. These have been built into a

hypertext form so the comments can be viewed easily and a 1-key

command will execute Mathisen's test.

The hypertext viewer is my own Software Taxi which NA Digest readers

may also find interesting as a way to present "live" demonstrations

of software along with commentary. Simple text files are used for

the hypertexts and control files. Freeware.

The Pentium hypertext and the Software Taxi are available by

anonymous FTP from either

MacNash.admin.uottawa.ca

(look in the "binaries" subdirectory)

or ftp.synapse.net in the info/nashinfo/ subdirectory.

The files in the LHA archive PENTIUM0.LZH contain information,

comments and test programs about the Intel Pentium FDIV bug. They

are designed to be used in conjunction with the Software Taxi

hypertext viewer in SWTAXI0.LZH.

You should unpack the files from both archives into the same

directory (or diskette -- 1.2 MB or 1.4MB format). To view/run the

files, type

ST0 PENTIUM0 [Enter]

To run the Software Taxi general introduction, simply type

ST0 [Enter]

and accept defaults. The Software Taxi is only 23K and designed for

student use on low-power PCs; it is fast enough to run from a

diskette.

**Subject: Prelude to Pentium**

In 1960, when Leslie Fox was Director of Oxford University

Computing Laboratory, a Sirius computer (of the 2nd generation) was

installed there. Fox had gained his computing experience on Turing's Pilot

ACE (built in 1950 by J. H. Wilkinson) and on its commercial version DEUCE;

and hence he was accustomed to programming in which every bit was correct,

including fixed-point arithmetic in which round-off was in the range -1/2

to +1/2 bit in the least significant place.

His testing of Sirius had revealed persistent errors in the arithmetic

performed; and eventually he was horrified to discover that the arithmetic

hardware performed fixed-point division with roundoff between +1 and +2

bits! Leslie Fox erupted with scandalized outrage at that inexcusable

blunder by the manufacturers of Sirius!

**Subject: LIPSOL Beta-2 Release**

LIPSOL Beta-2 Release Announcement

I am pleased to announce the Beta-2 release of LIPSOL -- Linear

programming Interior-Point SOLvers. LIPSOL is a package that uses

Matlab's sparse-matrix data structure and MEX utilities to achieve

both programming simplicity and computational efficiency.

--- What's New? ---

Release Beta-2 is a major step-up from the first Beta release (now

called Beta-1) with important enhancements and bug-fixings. The

highlights are:

1. Beta-2 now solves 94 Netlib LP problems out of 95 (fit2p, still

untested, is too costly without a dense-column handling strategy);

while Beta-1 could only solve 80 problems. A single set of default

parameter values is used to solve 93 problems (except for dfl001).

2. Beta-2 is much faster than Beta-1 for large problems. Here are

some statistics on an SGI machine (R4400/150Mhz processor) for 3 of

the largest problems:

CPU-seconds

maros-r7 3137 9408 14 508 untested

stocfor3 16676 15695 38 206 untested

----------------------------------------------------

LIPSOL is still under active development. Further improvements and

speedups are expected.

--- What platforms are supported? ---

The Beta versions contain binary files and is machine-dependent.

LIPSOL Beta-2 includes distributions for DEC (Ultrix 4.x), SGI (IRIX

5.2) and Sun Sparcs (SunOS 4.1.3) UNIX workstations.

-- Where to get LIPSOL? --

LIPSOL Beta-2 is free and may be down-loaded through anonymous FTP

from the internet site: ftp.math.umbc.edu

in the directory: pub/zhang/lipsol/beta-2 (also available from the

WWW URL: http://math.umbc.edu/~yzhang).

The installation and use of LIPSOL are simple. See the README files

for information. (Sorry, a new user's guide is not available yet.)

Acknowledgment

LIPSOL Beta-2 includes mex-files constructed from a sparse Cholesky

Fortran package developed by Esmond Ng and Barry Peyton at ORNL, which

is in part responsible for the significant speed-up on large problems.

During the development of LIPSOL Beta-2, I received programming

assistance from Detong Zhang at UMBC and valuable feedbacks from Steve

Wright at ANL. Thank you all, folks.

Telephone: + 44 243 779777

'Stochastic Programming' is the first textbook to provide a thorough

and self-contained introduction to the subject. Carefully written to

cover all necessary background material from both linear and non-linear

programming, as well as probability theory, the book draws together the

methods and techniques previously described in disparate sources.

After introducing the terms and modelling issues when randomness is

introduced in a deterministic mathematical programming model, the

authors cover decision trees and dynamic programming, recourse

problems, probabilistic constraints, preprocessing and network

problems. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter.

Throughout, the emphasis is on the appropriate use of the techniques,

rather than on the underlying mathematical proofs and theories, making

the book ideal for researchers and students in mathematical programming

and operations research who wish to develop their skills in stochastic

programming.

The book has 6 chapters

Ch1: Basic concepts

Ch2: Dynamic Systems

Ch3: Recourse problems

Ch4: Probabilistic constraints

Ch5: Preprocessing

Ch6: Network problems

Research position in numerical modeling of multiphase flow

At the Institute of Mathematics in the University of the Federal Armed

Forces Munich, a two-year research scientist position is open to be filled

as soon as possible. The position is connected with a research project in

applied mathematics on "Optimization of venting techniques for remediation

of NAPL contaminated soils (Soil Venting)". The project funded by the German

Federal Department for Research and Technology started in 1994 and is

supposed to end by April 1997. The goal is to find applicable solutions for

practical problems in cooperation with a German company. Further details may

be found on the special page in the World Wide Web:

http://www.informatik.unibw-muenchen.de/informatik/institute/inst1/lhkw.html

The candidate is expected to simulate three-dimensional (3-D) gas flow in

soils of different industrial sites, to model 3-D contaminant transport of

NAPL's, and eventually, to determine optimal strategies for the remediation

process. The numerical methods to be used are mixed finite elements combined

with domain decomposition. The code to be written will be based on the C++ -

package GOOFE developed at the Technical University Munich in the research

group of Ronald Hoppe.

The ideal candidate has a degree (preferably Ph.D.) in mathematics or physics;

he should be familiar with scientific computing, in particular with partial

differential equations and their numerical solution by finite element methods.

Experience with the programming language C is required, and basic knowledge

in thermodynamics and/or physical chemistry would be helpful.

Salary is according to the German BAT IIa tariff. Salary includes payments

for social security, health care, and benefits and depends on age and

family status, e.g., a 27 year old unmarried person receives in 1994 DM

65,832 (appr. $44,000) gross payment per annum.

Knowledge of the German language is not expected, and only necessary as far

as everyday life is concerned.

Candidates should contact me as soon as possible, and provide their CV, a

list of publications, and a description of their scientific background and

interests.
