**Subject: Symbolic Computing, and Educational Advice**

Dear NA-Netters:

This semester I am teaching a new senior-level Cornell course

on "Software Tools for Computational Science." Two weeks of

this course will be spent on symbolic computing in Maple.

I am looking for the perfect problem for the students to work

on in this segment, one that is not too advanced mathematically

yet touches some real science. It must be intrinsically

symbolic, not numerical. Any ideas will be most gratefully

welcomed.

More broadly, I would welcome advice (or URLs) from people

who've taught similar courses. The quick summary is that

I plan to discuss software tools in a strong scientific and

historical context, so there's much more to the course than

gee-whiz. The course divides into seven two-week segments:

1. problem-solving environments (Matlab...)

2. symbolic computing (Maple...)

3. software libraries (PETSc...)

4. visualization (DX...)

5. parallel computing (MultiMatlab...)

6. program transformations (ADIFOR...)

7. Web-based computing (on-line genome facilities).

In each area I'm looking for the perfect technical reading,

the perfect historical reading, the perfect scientific

application, the perfect homework problem.

Short Course:

NUMERICAL MODELLING:

MULTIPHASE FLOW AND TRANSPORT PROCESSES

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The course introduces first the physical basics of multiphase flow and

transport processes in heterogeneous porous and fractured porous media.

The constitutive relationships (relative permeability - saturation and

capillary pressure - saturation relationship) and their influence on the

multiphase behaviour are discussed in detail. Based on these, isothermal

and nonisothermal multiphase flow processes are described by means of

the Finite Element and Finite Volume method and solution strategies are

presented. Problem examples are simulated and discussed in small groups

at workstations (Hewlett - Packard). The lecture notes as well as a

demo version of the multiphase code 'MUFTE' are included in the course

fee. The participants are invited to contribute problems encountered in

their own work for discussion in small groups. There will be an oppor-

tunity to view current research projects related to multiphase flow

topics which are part of VEGAS (research facility for subsurface

remediation).

COURSE DIRECTOR:

Dr. Rainer Helmig, Institut fuer Wasserbau,

Universitaet Stuttgart

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

The course is directed at persons with masters degree or an equal quali-

fication looking for a sound understanding of multiphase processes and/or

persons requiring an understanding of how to apply multiphase (e.g.

chlorinated hydrocarbons, mineral oil) flow and transport models in the

saturated or unsaturated zone.

DIMACS Workshop on NETWORK DESIGN: CONNECTIVITY AND FACILITIES LOCATION

Date: April 28-30, 1997

Location: Princeton University (Nassau Inn)

Organizers: Ding-Zhu Du (dzd@cs.umn.edu), Panos Pardalos (pardalos@ufl.edu)

Advisory Committem:

P. Berman, R. Burkard, A.V. Goldberg, F.K. Hwang, M. Karpinski,

Robert E. Tarjan, H. Rubinstein, A.C. Yao.

Distingushed Speaker: Sanjeev Arora

Description: Connectivity and facilities location are two important

topics in network designs with applications in data communication,

transportation, production planning, and VISI designs.

There are two issues concerning these two topics: design

and optimization. They involve combinatorial design and combinatorial

optimization.

Finding the solution of design problems, and the optimal or

approximate solution of the related optimization

problem are challenging tasks because no polynomial time

algorithms are known.

Such problems include some variations of Steiner tree problems

(such as multiple connected Steiner network,

independent flow problem, and subset-interconnection designs),

topology network design, nonlinear assignment problems

(such as quadratic assignment problems), problems in facilities

location and allocation and network problems appearing in VLSI design.

The workshop will focus on combinatorial, algorithmic, and applicational

aspects of these problems. We will be especially interested in efficient

approximation algorithms and their computational performance.

Additional information on travel and local accommodations will be

provided at a later date. More information on the DIMACS special

year on Networks can be obtained from the dimacs webb pages:
