Subject: Nonsymmetric Iterative Solvers

In order to integrate the time dependent neutron diffusion equation, we need
to solve a system of linear equation with the following characteristics:
The order of the system is bigger than 10000. The matrix is sparsed, highly non
symetric, and the number of non zero elements is bigger than 500000. We
have thought of an iterative system to find the solution, but most of the
methods work well for symetric matrices. Does anyone know any efficient
iterative method for this kind of problems. Thanks in advance for any answer.

Subject: Boundary Value ODE Book Republished

Dear Colleagues,

Our book,
Numerical Solution of Boundary Value Problems
for Ordinary Differential Equations

has recently been published with SIAM in the Classics series
and is now available. The first edition of this book, published
in 1988 by Prentice-Hall, became unavailable in 1993.
The current edition contains many small corrections but
no major ones. Also, it's in a softcover volume and is significantly
cheaper than the original edition. Those of you who are interested
in this field may find the book very helpful.

Please feel free to contact SIAM for further information:

Subject: Simulation Language, SIL, Available via FTP

Dear NA-friends,

The SIL system (SIL stands for SImulation Language) might be of
interest for some of you. It has now passed several years of
testing by students at DTU and I therefore invites you to try it
out. It runs only (unfortunately) under DOS (on IBM compatible
PCs) and can be used for solving
- Algebraic Equations
- ODEs (y'=f(t,y) or 0=f(t,y,y'); stiff or non-stiff)
- DAEs (only index 1)
- Discontinuous ODEs, and
- Non-linear datafitting problems.

The ODEs are integrated using STRIDE (version 1.x) and they are
displayed graphically (and interactively). A special (PASCAL-like)
input language is used for stating the equations. Range checking
on selected variables can be imposed.

A version of the code is available via anonymous FTP from the site . (IP
REMEMBER to use Binary transfer mode!
Copy all files from the SIL directory and the two subdirectories

The users guide can be found in

Happy simulations

Subject: Zetta Tsaltas

Dear colleagues, I need to share the following with you, especially with
those that know me.

On the 8th of August while me and my family (my wife Zetta and our kids Simon
and Leto) were on vacation at the Greek island of Lemnos, my wife Zetta lost
her life on a car accident.

Zetta had successfully defended her Ph.D. on Cancer Research last December.
Zetta completed her Ph.D. while at the same time she was working full time
and raising two children (Simon 7 years old and Leto 4.5). She was
intelligent, loving and caring. I had found the life time partner we all
dream of. I was proud of my wife and those that know me also know that
I would not miss a chance to talk about her achievements.

The last academic year 1994-95, we started working together on an
interdisciplinary project entitled "Mathematical Modeling in Cancer Research:
Simulation and Control". Although this was a rather general title, we started
by attempting to determine an optimal schedule (including the dosage) of
delivering a specific drug to specific cancer cells. The project had been
partially funded by NSERC and Memorial University. We had been seeking though
complete funding, actually the results of a grant application for this
project are still pending. The project had also created enough interest in
the local community so that an article was published in the local newspaper
entitled "Cancer Research combines Computer Science and Biology".

We were to spend the current academic year in Toronto. Zetta had got a
postdoctoral position at the Toronto general hospital working on Gene Therapy
for Cancer and I had arranged to spend my sabbatical year at the Toronto
university, department of Computer Science. Due to the unfortunate
circumstances though me and my kids will spend the current academic year at
57 Panioniou str. Kesariani, Athens, 161 21, Greece. My e-mail address
"" still works.

I met Zetta in Montreal in February 1983, although we spent together 12.5
happy years, I feel she went by my life like a comet. She combined the glory
and the excitement of her arrival, the happy and productive activities of
her stay and the disappointment of her departure. Too bad it was a once in
a life time event. The following statement comes from the bottom of my heart:

Dear Zetta, for our two beautiful kids you brought in life, for the good and
the difficult times, for the happy and the sad times, for 12.5 fulfilling
years I thank you. Wherever you are, rest in pease, have fun and please know
that I will love you eternally.

Subject: Dynamic Load Balancing on MPP Systems

Dynamic Load Balancing on MPP Systems:
Progress, Challenge and Issues

Monday, 27th November, 1995

This 1-day meeting, organised by CCP12 and the ERCOFTAC special
interest group for Parallel Computing in CFD with support
from the DL HPCI Centre, will focus on dynamic load balancing
topics of concern in the parallel computation of fluid dynamics,
electromagnetics and many other science and engineering areas.

Preliminary Programme

"Can Static Load Balancing Algorithms Be Appropriate in a Dynamic
Setting?" Bruce Hendrickson (Sandia National Laboratory)

"Variants of the Spectral Bisection Technique Suited for Dynamic
Load Balancing" Dirk Roose (KU Leuven, Belgium)

"Parallel Mesh Partitioning" Chris Walshaw (University of Greenwich)

``Towards Parallel Dynamic Load Balancing for Adaptive PDE solvers",
Peter Jimack (University of Leeds)

"Some Algorithms for Dynamic Load Balancing" Yifan Hu (Daresbury

It is also hoped to have speakers from industries. Additional
contributions, particularly in the form of posters, are welcome.
The workshop will seek to identify the current status of dynamic
load balancing on parallel systems. It will focus on MPP systems
such as the Cray T3D, Intel Paragon and IBM SP2, although the
issues addressed would be equally applicable to workstation clusters.
It will establish current practice and illustrate the challenges
facing both academic and industrial researchers. The workshop will
also seek to identify the issues involved in achieving efficient
dynamic load balancing strategies on existing or future machines.
