**Subject: Richard Weiss**

Richard Weiss died on 31 July, shortly after his 51st birthday. Although he

had been suffering from various ailments for a number of years, which greatly

reduced his capacity for scientific work, much to his distress, his unexpected

death came as a shock for his friends and colleagues.

Richard's principal contributions to numerical analysis were in the area of

singularly perturbed differential equations. As early as 25 years ago, he

realized that analytical information was critical for the development of well-

behaved algorithms; with various co-workers he published some of the seminal

paers in this area. After ha had become a professor at the Technical University

of Vienna at the age of 34, he and his students (P.Markowich, Ch.Ringhofer,

Ch.Schmeiser, and others) extended these ideas to semiconductor modelling and

computation and to related problems. His ideas on dynamical systems were taken

up and further developed by P.Szmolyan and other students.

His friends around the globe will keep him in their memories as a hard-working,

lively, and good-natured person with whom they enjoyed to be associated.

Re: Academic Conferences On Web

In a recent NA Digest (Monday, August 11, 1997, Volume 97, Issue 32) Mr. Xin Yu

<yu@cfm.brown.edu> advertised a method to participate in "Conferences on the

Web." His instructions direct the reader to go to some kind of Web

yellow pages which has nothing to do with scientific research nor conferences

on the Web. In fact, the instructions lead one to Mr. Yu's personal page which

advertises what may be a pyramid scheme.

I hope in the future Mr. Yu is not allowed to post in NA Digest.

**Subject: Solver for Local Nonlinear Optimization Problems**

S o l v O p t

v. 1.1 (June, 1997)

is a collection of the M-files for use with Matlab, FORTRAN and C source codes.

SolvOpt (Solver for local optimization problems) is concerned with

minimization or maximization of nonlinear, possibly non-smooth objective

functions and solution of nonlinear minimization problems taking into account

constraints by the method of exact penalization.

SolvOpt is a freeware and comes with no warranty.

Platforms:

MS Windows 3.xx, '95, HP Unix.

Compilers (required products):

Matlab 4.2 (MS Windows, UNIX), Matlab 5.0 (UNIX),

MS Visual C++, HP-UNIX C,

MS FORTRAN Optimizing Compiler 1.0, HP-UNIX FORTRAN-90.

Manuals:

the complete manual on SolvOpt is available as an Adobe 3.0 PS-file,

the online reference manual on SolvOpt is a shortened version of the

complete one.

Benchmarks:

the results illustrating the performance of the program

are presented on the web (but not given in the manual).

All this stuff is available for downloading from the URL:

http://bedvgm.kfunigraz.ac.at:8001/alex/solvopt/index.html

What is new in version 1.1?

- the program itself calculates suitable penalty coefficients,

- the step size strategy has been improved essentially,

- the termination criteria have become more strict,

- the code is better adapted to minimization of badly scaled,

almost "flat" and extremely "steep" functions,

- the routine does not stop at a point, where no function value

is available or it equals infinity, or gradient is zero,

unless it fails to find a way to pass a "bad" area,

- the manual is completed by including the chapters specific

for a programming language,

- warning messages come every time when the program detects

an irregular (complicated) case, so the user is aware of

possible failures.

- The FORTRAN and C versions are fully tested now.

However,

- still no information about Lagrange multipliers is computed,

- FORTRAN-77 is no more supported,

- the authors plan no further improvement to the code by the end of

the academic year 1997-1998.

methodologies for mesh generation.

Essential technical skills of successful applicants will comprise a

sound background in areas of mathematics and physics related to

engineering sciences, experience in FORTRAN, C, C++ programming, the

usage of graphical libraries such as OpenGL and/or OpenInventor and

eventually GUI development; basic background with respect to extension

languages would be an additional asset. Important for the present

position is also the experience with commercial CAD packages and mesh

generation tools, e.g. CATIA, CADAM, ICEM, etc. At the same time, the

applicant should have background knowledge on the development and

implementation of mesh generation algorithms based on Delaunay

triangulation and heuristics.

All applicants should have a relevant degree in mechanical engineering,

mathematics or computer science and wide experience in the

aforementioned scientific fields. The ability to conduct research and

development independently, excellent communication skills, and teamwork

experience as well as good written and oral presentation skills will be

**Subject: Research Postion at Danish Supercomputing Center**

Ph.D. Project

Object-Oriented Software for Large-scale Environmental Models

A 3 year Ph.D. position is available from the Danish Research

Academy in cooperation with the National Environmental Research

Institute, the Danish Supercomputing Center (UNI-C) and the Department

of Mathematical Modelling at the Technical University of Denmark.

The solution of different environmental problems is becoming more

and more important for the society. However, if all physical processes

are carefully described in the model it is difficult to handle such

problems numerically and it becomes necessary to use flexible software

in order to benefit from the progress which is continuously made in

numerical methods for PDEs and ODEs. The purpose of the project is to

investigate the use of object-oriented software design for large-scale

environmental models. The initial task will be to form a library of

building blocks for the Danish Eulerian model using an object-oriented

language and subsequently to extend the functionality to supporting 3D

as well as refined grid simulations. The main issues to be addressed

are parallelism and choice of numerical methods.

The salary for the first two years will be dkr. 171.504 and for the

third year dkr. 189.369. On top of this it will be possible to earn

approximately dkr. 52.000 a year.

The application must be received by the Danish Research Academy no

later than October, 1st, 1997. An application form as well as a

supplementary description of the project can be obtained from

engineering, aerodynamics, environmental technology, materials science,

measurement techniques, and computer science.

permanent position as a

Scientific Computing Expert

The candidate should have a broad background in practical scientific

computing. He or she should be able to analyse practices in computational

environments, identify problems and find and implement solutions. Challenges

will usually span several aspects of scientific computing and require broad

experience in computational modeling, simulation software, and high-performance

The current range of projects involves work in at least two of the following

areas:

- nonlinear optimisation

- implementation of parallel CFD for unstructured 3-D grids

- parallel computing and load sharing over local and wide-area networks

Communicative skills are essential, since the candidate will often have to

interface between scientists, engineers, and managers in very different fields,

advise them on improvements, and articulate ideas in their own terminology. An

ability to communicate in English, a workable understanding of German and a

willingness to improve these language skills are essential for an appropriate
