**Subject: Jerry Keiper**

I wanted to let you know of a very sad event that took place yesterday

evening: Jerry Keiper, the leader of our numerics R&D group, was killed in

a bicycle accident in Champaign, Illinois.

Jerry began his work on Mathematica in 1987, and laid the foundations

for most of the numerical capabilities of the system. He pioneered

major new approaches in numerical analysis, implementing them in

Mathematica, as well as using them in papers that he published

about topics such as the Riemann zeta function. (He was largely responsible

for the 1990 Mathematica poster of the zeta function.)

Jerry will be known to many for his book "Elementary Numerical Computing

with Mathematica", as well as for his lectures, papers and participation

in newsgroups. His tragic death in the prime of his life is a great loss

not only to those who knew him personally, but also to the world of

mathematics and computing at large.

In addition to having a superb intellect, Jerry was also a remarkable

human being whose life continually demonstrated the deep spiritual and

philosophical principles that guided him. I and his many friends will

miss him greatly.

We have set up the alias keiper-memorial@wri.com for mail about Jerry

that can be shared with his family, friends and colleagues. We will

be posting a more extensive obituary shortly.

**Subject: Two Special Swedish Birthdays**

Two Special Swedish Birthdays

Last week, conferences were held in Sweden recognizing special

milestones for two foremost Swedish numerical analysts:

Ake Bjorck and Germund Dahlquist.

First, on January 9/10, a conference on least squares computations

celebrating Ake Bjorck's 60th birthday was held in Linkoping, very

well organized by Lars Elden and Tommy Elfving, assisted by the staff

of their department. About 70 people attended, including many from

North America and Central Europe. Invited talks were given by

Gene Golub, Iain Duff, Pete Stewart, Sabine van Huffel, Chris Paige,

Jim Varah, Charles van Loan, and Michael Saunders. In addition, there

were over 20 contributed talks, making it a very full two-day meeting.

Particularly notable, in this reviewer's estimation, was Charlie van

Loan's talk on the use of Kronecker Products in matrix decompositions,

including new applications in wavelet transformations.

A conference dinner in Ake's honor was held on the evening of

January 9, at the Frimurare Hotel, in true Swedish style, with the

President on Linkoping University, Sven Erlander, presiding.

Many testimonials to Ake's work and generous nature were given.

He was summed up by more than one observer as "a true Swedish

gentleman".

Note: several of the papers presented at the conference are available

on WWW - use http://math.liu.se/Num/conference/

Second, from January 11-13, a conference honoring Germund

Dahlquist's 70th birthday was held at the Royal Institute in Stockholm,

ably organized by Lennart Edsberg, Bengt Lindberg, and the staff

of NADA. Unlike the event 10 years ago celebrating his 60th

birthday, this one was not intended to be a major conference. However,

there were still over 70 attendees, many from North America and other

parts of Europe (and John Butcher from New Zealand!). Hour-long

invited talks were given by Gene Golub, John Butcher, and Heinz

Kreiss, and there were as well 25 twenty-minute talks, thus filling up

the two and a half day schedule.

Again the conference dinner Thursday night at the Vardshuset on the

KTH campus was most entertaining, with 12 testimonials given to

the breadth and depth of Germund's contributions to the field, and

to his support of other researchers. The evening culminated in

the singing of a special "Ode to Germund", written specially for

the occasion.

**Subject: Who are Seidel, Hessenberg and Jordan?**

Who are Seidel ?, Hessenberg ? and Jordan ?

Most of numerical analysts know the Gauss-Seidel method

of the iterative method, the Hessenberg matrix in eigenvalue

problem and the Gauss-Jordan method for the direct method

for linear systems.

I do, however, wonder who is Seidel, Hessenberg and Jordan ?

Concerning Seidel as a designer of the Gauss-Seidel method,

from the book titled 'Valeurs propres de matrices' by

Francoise Chatelin published by Masson Paris 1988.

In chapter 2.12 of the book, we can see that Philipp Ludwig

Seidel(1821-1896) was born at Zwiebr\"ucken and

died at M\"unchen.

Moreover, we know that his original paper of the Gauss-Seidel

method is the following paper.

\"Uber ein Verfahren, die Gleichungen, auf welche

die Methode der kleinsten Quadrate f\"uhrt, sowie lineare

Gleichungen \"uberhaupt, durch successive Ann\"aherung

aufzul\"osen, Abh. bayer Akad. Wiss., {\bf 11}(1874), 81.

However, I want to know on his personal data in detail.

Concerning Hessenberg as a designer of the Hesssenberg matrix

in eigenvalue problems, from the book written by G\"unther and

H\"ammerlin titled "Numerical Mathematics" published from

Springer Verlag 1991(English translation),

we can see that they refered K. Hessenberg (1941) in page 97

of the book as a designer of Hessenberg matices, and

listed in the reference(page 409):

"Auflosung linearer Eigenwertaufgaben mit Hilfe der

Hamilton-Cayleyschen Gleichung. Dissertation T. H. Darmstadt"

by K. Hessenberg(1941).

Does anybody have his dissertation itself?

Concerning Jordan as a designer of the Gauss-Jordan method of

the direct method for linear systems, I do not know except

that he might be German.

In chapter 1.6.3 of the above book by F. Chatelin, we see that

Jordan as a designer of Jordan normal form is French Camille

Jordan(1838-1921). He was born at Lyon and was died at Paris.

However, we cannot know anything from this book about

Jordan himself of the Gauss-Jordan method and his original

paper and his works?

So, what I want to know is on their personal information

in detail and their works relevant to the method.

Does anybody have knowledge on this matter?

Thanks a lot in advance!

**Subject: Bypassing the Pentium's Bug**

Hello, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 11/01/95

I have developed an Assembler 80x87 routine to prevent the well-known

Pentium's bug. It's slow, but works quite well. The routine - called MyDiv -

is nchased within a program (in two flavours, Turbo Pascal and C)

which also performs the following tests:

First test: (5505001/294911)*294911 - 5505001

Second test: (4195835/3145727)*3145727 - 4195835

The performance of MyDiv is compared with the compiler instruction "/" and

with tbe coprocessor's (defective) FDIV instruction.

If you are willing to get a copy of the code please send a mail to:

barbuto@ax.ibase.org.br

(in Portuguese or English) specifying which version you want to receive,

Pascal or C, and I'll send it to you as soon as possible.

ANNOUNCEMENT: SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ABS METHODS

Beijing, June 1-3, 1995

ABS methods are techniques that have been developed since 1984 to unify

algorithms for solving linear and nonlinear equations and optimization

problems, starting from a paper of Abaffy, Broyden and Spedicato in

Numerische Mathematik. Present ABS literature has more than 250 works and

numerical experiments have shown that these methods can be implemented in a

numerically stable way and can be faster than standard methods on

vector/parallel machines. Following a first conference in Luoyang, the

second ABS conference is planned in Beijing, June 1-3. Notice that the

optimization ICOTA conference is planned for June 5-8 in Chengdu.

Registration fee is 250 US$, including lunches and dinner banquet. Papers in

the area or in related linear algebra and optimization areas are invited.

Proceedings will be published. For further information contact the

conference chairman prof. Deng Naiyang, Dept Basic Sciences, Agricultural

Engineering University, Quinghua Donglu, Beijing 100083, fax +86 1 2016320 or

prof. E. Spedicato, Dept Mathematics, University of Bergamo, fax +39 35

234693, email emilio at ibguniv.bitnet. For information on ICOTA conference

contact prof. Juping Xu, fax +86 28 5582670.

Fourth SIAM Conference on Geometric Design

Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Geometric Design

November 6-9, 1995

Loews Vanderbilt Plaza Hotel, Nashville, Tennessee

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

This conference will bring together researchers from academia,

industry, and government to discuss the mathematical and

computational problems associated with the application of

geometry to current problems of design, manufacturing, and the

representation of physical phenomena. The conference will focus

on curve and surface design, solid modeling and computer-aided

design and manufacturing, geometric algorithms, and applications

in such areas as computer vision, geosciences, graphics, medical

imaging, robotics, and scientific visualization.

What is New About the Conference?

In response to requests from attendees of previous meetings,

there will be several changes in the format of the conference.

First, the length of the conference will be reduced from 5 days

to 4. The number of parallel sessions will also be reduced from 4

to 2 for Minisymposia, and from 4 to 3 for Contributed Focus

Sessions.

The challenge to the organizing committee was to provide a forum

for all SIAM members to present their research within a format

with fewer days and fewer parallel sessions. As in the past,

there will be no refereeing of papers. We believe in the free

and immediate flow of ideas. However, to accomplish this

organizational feat, we have redirected the minisymposia, changed

the format of the contributed sessions which will now be called

Contributed Focus Sessions, and reinstated the poster session.
