**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

lfe.mnet.dtu.dk . (IP 130.225.89.137)

REMEMBER to use Binary transfer mode!

Copy all files from the SIL directory and the two subdirectories

SIL/DEMO and SIL/EXAMP .

**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

"miminis@cs.mun.ca" 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.

HCM WORKSHOP: INNOVATIVE TIME INTEGRATORS (November 6 - 8, 1996)

This workshop takes place at CWI (Center for Mathematics and Computer Science)

in AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands. The focus is on nonstandard ODE and PDE

time-stepping techniques, Keywords for lectures are classified into two main

categories:

1. ASPECTS OF SPECIAL PURPOSE TIME INTEGRATION METHODS FOR SYSTEMS

OF MULTI-SPACE DIMENSIONAL TIME-DEPENDENT PDE PROBLEMS,

2. LONG TIME INTEGRATION, DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS AND MULTIPLE TIME-SCALES.

The workshop is organized by CHUS SANZ-SERNA, Universidad de Valladolid, Spain

and JAN VERWER from CWI, with financial support provided by the EC/HCM program

'The Equations of Fluid Mechanics and Related Subjects'. This support covers

local expenses of participants. Part of the participants will belong to research

groups from the HCM network and part from outside the network. The number of

attendees is limited to approximately 35 of which about 3/4 will be from outside.

The workshop is open to anyone interested, but, since there is limited space,

participation is by invitation only. Rules for participation can be found

in the FULL ANNOUNCEMENT which can be obtained from Mrs. Simone Panka-van der

Dynamic Load Balancing on MPP Systems:

Progress, Challenge and Issues

Monday, 27th November, 1995

DARESBURY LABORATORY, WARRINGTON, UK

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

Laboratory)

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.
