**Subject: Trefethen ODE/PDE Textbook**

Recently I have received many inquiries concerning my unpublished

textbook "Finite Difference and Spectral Methods for Ordinary and

Partial Differential Equations," the basis of graduate courses

taught at MIT and Cornell and a few other places since 1985.

Here's the status: the book has not been finished, and I do not

expect to finish it in the next few years. However, the portion

that exists (325 pages, with numerous exercises) is in reasonably

polished form and suitable for classroom use.

Tired of xeroxing copies on an individual basis, I have decided to

have this unfinished book printed and bound for general availability.

To obtain a copy, send me 22 US dollars or 15 pounds sterling (this

includes shipping charges). A table of contents and excerpts from

the book are available from my homepage (URL below). Not all of the

book is in PostScript, so it would not be possible to make it fully

available on the Web.

**Subject: Parallel Linear Algebra Package, PLAPACK**

We are approaching the beta release of our new package, Parallel

Linear Algebra Package (PLAPACK). The primary differences between

this library and earlier libraries include the adoption of a more

application friendly data distribution (Physically Based Matrix

Distribution) and a programming style that avoids the use of indices.

We believe this approach makes implementation of parallel dense linear

algebra libraries in some sense simpler than MATLAB script language.

While the beta release will likely not happen until early September,

we believe the Users' Guide may be of some use to those who teach

practical courses on the subject this fall. For this reason, we make

the manuscript in preparation available via the PLAPACK webpage:

http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/rvdg/plapack

By filling out the guestbook, one can request to become a beta site.

**Subject: Printed Circuit and Semiconductor Simulation Code Needed**

Hi Folks,

I need to solve a 3-dimensional Laplace equation on the domain

0 < x < x_0 (x_0 << y_0)

0 < y < y_0

-\infty < z < +\infty,

with the following boundary conditions: periodicity in z with alternating

Neumann and Dirichlet conditions on the x=0 plane. I have a mixture of

Neumann and Dirichlet conditions along x- and y-directions.

This problem originates from calculating electrostatic parameters of a long

(z) thin (x) cable made of narrow (y) metal strips glued to the dielectric.

The x=0 plane is made of a metal mesh, which gives rise to periodicity in

boundary conditions on x=0 plane and along the z-direction.

Could anyone point me toward available programs for solving this problem

with <5% accuracy. This should be a standard problem of designing printed

circuits or large semiconductor devices.

Thanks so much in advance!

Delft, The Netherlands

This second announcement contains more information about main speakers

and already submitted papers, plus registration information.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: August 9, 1996.

Aim of the workshop

Recent progress in computer technology on the one hand and algorithms

or optimization on the other hand has led to a dramatic increase of the

efficiency of solution methods for a wide class of optimization

problems. The aim of the workshop is to bring together some of the most

active researchers working on the design and implementation of

optimization algorithms.

We aim to cover the latest algorithmic developments, complexity results

and implementation aspects, including the required tools from numerical

algebra.

Much attention will be given to the recent developments in semidefinite

optimization and its relevance for a wide range of practical

applications in fields such as combinatorial optimization, engineering,

design, matrix inequalities in systems and control theory, and matrix

completion problems.

**Subject: Workshop on Evolutionary Algorithms**

UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA SUPERCOMPUTER INSTITUTE

WORKSHOP ON EVOLUTIONARY ALGORITHMS

Dates: October 21-25, 1996

Conference Site: Institute for Mathematics and its Applications

University of Minnesota

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Sponsors: Institute for Mathematics and its Applications

Supercomputer Institute

Overview:

The workshop will bring together key researchers for a concentrated

discussion of theory and applications of evolutionary algorithms,

including genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, and evolutionary

programming. The workshop will be organized around a limited number of

plenary lectures with generous blocks of time for interactive discussion

sessions.

The workshop will begin with a series of expository talks that overview

the foundations of these fields and define critical issues to be

discussed during the workshop. A major goal is to use discussion time to

communicate recent research results and to bridge the gap between theory

and applications. The workshop will also assess the state of the current

mathematical underpinning of the field and reconcile some of the diverse

theoretical perspectives of the various participants. The workshop will

emphasize high-performance computing using parallel evolutionary

algorithms and hybrid algorithms in critical state-of-the-art applications.

The workshop will be of interest to:

* practitioners from industry with applications in

search, optimization, and machine learning

* mathematicians working in dynamical systems and Markov processes

* people interested in application areas and algorithms for

high-performance computing
