**Subject: Professor Jean Laborde**

I regret that I have to tell you that my father, Professor Jean Laborde,

passed away on October 5, 1997 at the age of 86. Together with Professor

Kuntzmann and Professor Gastinel at the University of Grenoble, he was

one of the pionneers of numerical analysis in France. He designed the

first computed numerical tables. They were published in 1961 and served

as a reference in the next thirty years for high school and university

students until the pocket calculator became common. They were known and

used in many places, including the Pentagone...

**Subject: Langmuir film model **

I am modeling the energy lost to the fill gas in incandescent light

bulbs. Currently I am using the Langmuir film model to calculate this.

This method works well when the ratio of the Langmuir film diameter to

the inside bulb diameter is less than 0.5. Is there another method that

might work better? Has the Langmuir film model been modified by anyone?

Currently, the calculation takes less than 1 second on my PC - and I

need it to be this quick. For this reason I do not what to do use any

of the CFD codes commercially available. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

**Subject: PseudoPack v2.2 beta**

Hello, this message announces the PseudoPack v2.2 beta.

PseudoPack is a software library for numerical differentiation by

pseudospectral methods.

It is being developed at Brown University by Prof. Wai Sun Don and

Dr. Alex Solomonoff.

Its aims are to provide minimum roundoff error and good efficiency on

several computational platforms. They are SGI, Sun, IBM R6000 and Cray.

The software package is written in Fortran 77 with the C preprocessor. We

have used a few Fortran 90 extensions, namely long function and variable

names, and use of the enddo keyword.

It is freely available, at least to all non-commercial users.

If you have already downloaded the previous version before,

you know where and how to find the files.

Thanks for your time.

You can read the description from our Web page

**Subject: Announcement of DAISY**

DAISY: A Database for Identification of Systems

http://www.esat.kuleuven.ac.be/sista/daisy/

Description:

DAISY is an Internet application, mainly consisting of a database

of datasets used in system identification or time series analysis.

The system can be used in two directions: you can download datasets

from the database (e.g. to use them to compare or test

identification algorithms), and you can upload datasets to the

database (to make it possible for other people to use your datasets

to verify their algorithms, or to reproduce or enhance your

results). The datasets in the database are subject to a mild

review, so that we can guarantee a certain level of quality.

Benefits:

DAISY is an answer to a real challenge in research in system

identification and signal processing, namely to ensure the

reproducibility of results, based on real data. Often datasets are

used to illustrate algorithms in publications, but almost never

these datasets are public, so nobody is able to verify the results

stated. Using DAISY, this problem is history: if you need to

verify your algorithm with a real-world example, you can use

datasets from DAISY, or you can submit the dataset you used to

DAISY. This way everybody can (try to) reproduce your results.

Other benefits of DAISY include increased collaboration between

researchers, the gradual evolution of certain datasets into

benchmarks, and the publication of comparisons between different

methods or algorithms.

Organisation:

DAISY is a website consisting of a page with the datasets (sorted

by category), a page where you can submit datasets, and pages with

relevant links, all publications and talks about DAISY, a

bibliography and software overview, some hitting statistics, and

last but not least the acknowledgments to our sponsors.

DAISY is being developed and maintained at the department of Electrical

Engineering of the K.U.Leuven, in the research group SISTA, under the

responsibility of Bart De Moor.

**Subject: MathXplorer/Java - the first matlab compatible Java 1.1 Computation engine**

Press Release: For immediate release

The MathWizards release the first matlab compatible

Java 1.1 computation engine, MathXplorer/Java

The MathWizards, developers of the affordable MathViews

interpreter, are pleased to introduce MathXplorer/Java,

the FIRST matlab-compatible Java 1.1 computational class.

MathXplorer/Java, integral part of MathWizards' MathSuite(TM) product,

encapsulates the computational power of MathViews(TM) in an easy to use

Java class.

MATLAB=AE users will find MathXplorer/Java very easy to use.

MathXplorer/Java is a lightweight and embeddable interpreter

compatible with matlab syntax.

MathXplorer/Java does not support any GUI or graphics commands

directly. GUI and graphics functionality are aupported through Java.

Visit http://www.mathwizards.com/mw_javaix.html to see MathXplorer/Java

hosted by the Sun Microsystems HotJava(tm) browser and used for

interactive filter design and image processing and display.

Features and benefits of MathXplorer/Java includes:

* Internet Ready: The browser is used to develop easily accessible

active content. It simplifies sharing of simulation and analysis

results and development of training and course material.

Forget about MATLAB for GUI development, use your browser!

* Java power: MathXplorer/Java leverages Java power for

multi-threading support, cross-platform GUI support,

object orientation, and internet access.

Java is more powerful than MATLAB for object orientation and

GUI support.

Java also features database access, exception handling

and image display.

MATLAB users are not limited to the few GUI elements

provided by MATLAB.

Sample Java applets for Digital Filter Design, spectral analysis and

image display are included with the MathXplorer/Java distribution.

MathXplorer is also available as an ActiveX control for use with Visual

Basic, Delphi, Visual C++, Optima++, MS Excel and other visual design

tools.

MathXplorer uses the MathViews' computational engine.

MathViews is a comprehensive, matlab-compatible, easy-to-use,

fully interactive scientific/engineering software.

MathViews supports matrix and array algebra, complex numbers,

signal processing, and 2D/3D graphics with clipboard support.

MathViews extends MATLAB capabilities by incorporating

AutoAssign(TM) technology.

AutoAssign(TM) allows linking of variables for automatic update.

MathViews includes algorithms for: linear algebra

(LINPACK), digital signal processing (DSP), and has extensive graphics

capabilities, such as contour plots, polar plots and 3D plots.

The MathViews interpreter has received acclaim in the education sector

for bringing a highly functional matlab-compatible interpreter within

easy reach of tight education sector budgets.

MathViews student/evaluation version is available for download from The

MathWizards site.

The MathWizards offer FREE copies of MathViews and MathXplorer for

academic and educational institutions.

**Subject: Expokit - Software for Matrix Exponentials**

Expokit is a set of user-friendly routines (in FORTRAN 77 and MATLAB)

aimed at computing matrix exponentials. More precisely, it computes

either a small matrix exponential in full, the action of a large

sparse matrix exponential on an operand vector, or the solution of a

system of linear ODEs with constant inhomogeneity. The backbone of

the sparse routines consists of Krylov subspace projection methods

(Arnoldi and Lanczos processes) and that is why the toolkit is capable

of coping with sparse matrices of very large dimension. The software

handles real and complex matrices and provides tailored routines for

symmetric and Hermitian matrices. When dealing with Markov chains,

the computation of the matrix exponential is subject to probabilistic

constraints. In addition to addressing general matrix exponentials,

a distinct attention is assigned to the computation of transient

states of Markov chains. Expokit is the first comprehensive package

specifically design for matrix exponentials from the outset.

INTERNET

expokit@maths.uq.edu.au

http://www.maths.uq.edu.au/expokit

The work resulting from Expokit has been accepted for publication

in ACM-TOMS. We are considering submitting the code itself to

ACM-CALGO. In order to strenghten the robustness and reliability

of the software, we will appreciate comments and bugs that users

might have.
