Subject: Petr Kocandrle Receives Babuska Prize


In December 1995, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the
Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the
I. Babuska Prize for the best work in computer science submitted
by students and young scientists.

The Prize winner for 1995 is Dr Petr Kocandrle from the Faculty
of Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen.
The work honored was his PhD thesis Shape optimization of plane
elastic bodies.

Further winners on the second, third, and fourth places who were
delivered diplomas of honor were: Dr Maria Lukacova (at present
at the Technische Universitaet Magdeburg in Germany) with her
PhD thesis Numerical solution of compressible flow defended at
the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University
in Prague, Dr Hanus Krejci from the Institute of Theoretical and
Applied Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences in Prague with his
PhD thesis A face finite element with four rotational degrees of
freedom, and Dr Michal Polak from the Faculty of Civil
Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague with his
PhD thesis The model and solution of dynamic system of a bridge
construction and a vehicle.

The fifth and sixth positions were taken by Artur Linhart from
the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University
in Prague with his diploma work Numerical solution of
convection-diffusion processes and Milan Zajicek, a student of
the Faculty of Machine Engineering of the Czech Technical
University in Prague, with his research work Resistance heating
of laminar fluid flow.

The prize as well as the diplomas will be awarded every year and
they are connected with a financial support.

The prize was established in 1994 by an outstanding Czech
mathematician Ivo Babuska. He was born in Prague in 1926 and
after graduating from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the
Czech Technical University in Prague he started his work in the
Mathematical Institute of the Academy of Sciences. He was
appointed professor at the Charles University in Prague in 1968
and since fall 1968 he has been working in the United States.
Now he works at the Texas Institute for Computational and
Applied Mathematics, University of Texas, Austin, TX.

His scientific work is focused on numerical and applied
mathematics and computational mechanics, and their use in
practice. His results in the finite element method belong to the
fundamentals of the method. He is the author of several
monographs and has initiated several famous scientific meetings
both in Europe and the United States. He established the journal
Applications of Mathematics (formerly Aplikace matematiky) in
1956. Last year he was awarded the John von Neumann Medal by the
U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics. The world
mathematical community will remember the 70th birthdays of Prof.
Ivo Babuska, Prof. Miroslav Fiedler, Prof. Jaroslav Kurzweil,
and Prof. Vlastimil Ptak at the Prague Mathematical Conference
in Prague in July 1996.

Subject: Need Kolmogorov-Smirnov Approximation

I am seeking a reasonably accurate (4-6 decimals) and fast
approximation to the Kolmogorov-Smirnov probability distribution
function. I have a function written in C of the exact (explicit)
expression due the Birnbaum and Tingey [1]. For large N, it is
too slow, "large" being greater than 100. Further, the asymptotic
expressions due to Smirnov [2] and Darling [3] do not provide the
accuracy. I have also tried an expression attributed by Dudewicz
and Ralley [4] to W. Feller [5] which I found to be unstable.

Any further leads would be appreciated.

Subject: Seeking Convection Diffusion Code

I am looking for a public FEM Code capable of solving convection diffusion
problems (and probably incorporation the streamline diffusion method).

Since I would have to do some changes to code, I would prefer a well-written
code. Thank you for your help.

Subject: A GUI Front-end to NAG Library

The following GUI environment may be of interest to beginners, ocassional
and frequent users of NAG F77 Library.

NAGexTool is a portable GUI environment to the suite of example programs
supplied with the NAG Fortran 77 library software. The GUI allows user to
browse the Chapter titles, select a desired Chapter, browse through
available routines, select a routine, compile and execute the desired
example program.

The GUI environment is developed using the public domain software Tool Command
Language and the associated Tool Kit (Tcl/Tk). The required information is
discerned from ASCII text files that are supplied with the Library
distribution; and as such the interface is virtually maintenance free!

The NAGexTool can be downloaded from
in the file /pub/maths/tcltk/nagex77.tar.Z

Please follow the instructions in the README file and associated reports in
the Doc subdirectory.

Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Subject: New Book on Interval Computation

Applications of Interval Computations:
a new book published by Kluwer in January 1996

(from the Kluwer homepage)

ISBN: 0-7923-3847-2
edited by R. Baker Kearfott,
University of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette, USA,
Vladik Kreinovich,
University of Texas at El Paso, USA

(published in the Applied Optimization series,
Volume 3)

"Applications of Interval Computations" contains primarily
survey articles of actual industrial applications of numerical
analysis with automatic result verification and of interval
representation of data.

Underlying topics include:
* branch and bound algorithms for global optimization,
* constraint propagation,
* solution sets of linear systems,
* hardware and software systems for interval computations, and
* fuzzy logic.

Actual applications described in the book include:
* economic input-output models,
* quality control in manufacturing design,
* a computer-assisted proof in quantum mechanics,
* medical expert systems,
* and others.

A realistic view of interval
computations is taken: the articles indicate when and how
overestimation and other challenges can be overcome.

An introductory
chapter explains the content of the papers in terminology accessible
to mathematically literate graduate students. The style of the
individual, refereed contributions has been made uniform and
understandable, and there is an extensive book-wide index.

Audience: Valuable to students and researchers interested in
automatic result verification.

Detailed information, including
contents, contributors, and an order form can be found:
* on Kluwer homepage, or
* on the Interval Computations homepage, in the "Books" section
The information on the Interval Computations homepage is basically
a mirror image of the Kluwer one (the only difference is that
the fonts are fancier).

'96 Symposium on Computational Physics for Chinese
Overseas and at Home
(June 23 - June 28, 1996, Beijing)

1996 Symposium on Computational Physics for Chinese Overseas
and at Home" ( '96SCPCOH ), organized by overseas Chinese
scholars and Institute of Applied Physics and Computational
Mathematics in Beijing (IAPCM), will be held at IAPCM, June 23-28, 1996.

Purpose of the Symposium

With the aid of modern computers, scientific computing has been playing
increasing role in today's science and engineering applications. A particular
active area of research is computational physics, in which many Chinese
scholars, both from overseas and at home, are making important contributions.

The goal of this Symposium is to bring together the most active computational
scientists from overseas to exchange their research progresses
and to seek possible future collaborations with our fellow researchers
working in China, and ultimately, to promote the development of scientific
and engineering computation in China.


The topics of '96SCPCOH include a wide spectrum of research areas, ranging
from computational mathematics, physics to engineering. The organizers will
also arrange special discussions on the possible future directions of
computational physics in China.


Thirty invited speakers will be giving one-hour lectures.
Twenty-minute contributed talks will also be arranged.
