**Subject: New Book, Multilinear Algebra**

Russell Merris, Multilinear Algebra, Gordon & Breach,

Amsterdam, 1997, 332 + viii pages; ISBN: 90-5699-078-0.

Ideally suited for a fourth year undergraduate "capstone"

course, Multilinear Algebra is also an attractive choice for a

beginning graduate course and/or as a research reference. The first

four chapters consist of self-contained introductions to those

prerequisite notions beyond the standard third year undergraduate

courses in abstract and linear algebra.

Apart from applications to graph theory and the "excursion" into

Invariant Theory, the use of Schur functions as a unifying vehicle in

the final chapter may be of particular interest to combinatorialists.

Contents:

1. Partitions

Applications to Graphs

2. Inner Product Spaces

Applications to Graphs

3. Permutation Groups

Applications to Symmetry

4. Group Representation Theory

5. Tensor Spaces

6. Symmetry Classes of Tensors

Applications to the Theory of Enumeration

The Enumeration of Graphs

Applications to NMR Spectroscopy

7. Generalized Matrix Functions

An Excursion into Invariant Theory

Applications to Graphs

8. The Rational Representations of GL(n,C)

Applications to Graphs

**Subject: New Version of Schwarz-Christoffel Toolbox for MATLAB**

Version 2 of the Schwarz-Christoffel Toolbox for MATLAB is now

available at

http://amath.colorado.edu/appm/faculty/tad/SC-toolbox/

It requires version 5.0 of MATLAB. New features:

o Cross-ratio formulation for mulitply elongated regions

o Exploits new object-oriented paradigm in M5

o Improved graphical interface

The Schwarz-Christoffel Toolbox is an M-file suite for the computation

and visualization of conformal maps to simply connected regions

bounded by polygons. For more information, visit

I have put a postscript DRAFT of my paper,

An Annotated Bibliography for Post-solution Analysis in

Mixed Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization

at http://www-math.cudenver.edu/~hgreenbe/papers/mipsurvey.ps

(also compressed as mipsurvey.ps.gz).

I still await several papers from my Inter-Library Loan service (indicated

by ILL in the annotation). If you have the paper or (better yet) an

e-mail address of an author, please send it to me asap.

I would appreciate your comments, especially learning of any work I

missed, but please do not distribute this draft. It will be officially

released in September.

Thanks,
