Subject: Release of SPAI 3.2

Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce the release of the new version of SPAI:
SPAI, Version 3.2.

The code can be freely downloaded at the new SPAI homepage:

The SPAI algorithm computes a SParse Approximate Inverse (SPAI)
of a general sparse matrix for use as a preconditioner together
with an iterative method (Bi-CGSTAB, GMRES, QMR, etc ). The algorithm
is robust, effective on ill-conditioned linear systems, and inherently
parallel. The approximate inverse can also be used as a (parallel)
smoother for multigrid methods. The code is written in C/MPI and
includes three Matlab interfaces.

The SPAI algorithm was originally derived by M.J. Grote and
T. Huckle (SIAM J. Sc. Stat. Comput. 18(3), 1997). The parallel
C/MPI version was written by S. Barnard. The new auto configure
installation procedure was developed by O. Broeker, and further
refined by M. Hagemann.

New features of SPAI 3.2:
- auto configure: automatic installation procedure
- fixed sparsity now available: banded or subset of original matrix
- Matlab interfaces to three functions: spai, spaitau, and spaidiags

>> M = spai(A,eps,..); % adaptive sparsity
>> M = spaitau(A,..); % fixed sparsity, threshold tau
>> M = spaidiags(A,..); % banded structure

Best Regards,
Marcus Grote Michael Hagemann Olaf Schenk

Subject: UF sparse matrix collection updated

I've recently added quite a few matrices to the UF sparse
matrix collection, which now totals 1368 matrices. Newly
added matrices include an MRI scan, circuit simulation,
computer vision/graphics, chemical process simulation, and
molecular density functional theory. Also new to the web
pages are color pictures of each matrix. New matrices are
always welcome.

Subject: Fortran 90 code for Second Order Problems

A Fortran 90 code for Second Order Problems (stiff and non-stiff cases)
is released at (gauss2.tgz)

Authors of the code: Severiano Gonzalez Pinto ( and
Rogel Rojas Bello (

The code is intended for the numerical solution of Second Order Problems

$$ y''(t)= f(t,y(t)), y(t_0)=y_0, y'(t_0)=y'_0, t \in [t_0,t_f], t_f>t_0. $$

It has been designed to achieve low to medium precision. It delivers a
numerical solution at the endpoint, a numerical estimation of the global error
at the end point and also gives some statistics about the integration.

It is based on the two-stage Gauss Runge-Kutta (Nystrom) method and it can
be adequate for time-dependant (second order in time) Partial Differential
Equations discretized in space by Method of Lines. Specially, when the
Jacobians are banded. Any suggestions or comments from users are welcome.

Subject: Mauchly and Eckert fired

This month is the anniversary of some important events in the history of
computing. The two people with the most formidable claim to inventing the
computer, John Mauchly and Presper Eckert, were fired by the University of
Pennsylvania 60 years ago this month. Their proposal to build the first
digital electronic calculator was ignored by university administrators until
Lt. Herman Goldstine in April 1943 convinced the US Army to build what became
known as ENIAC. Even though the project supported roughly a dozen people, the
principals were not treated well: unlike some classmates the electronics
genius Eckert was never made faculty, and the visionary Mauchly had to give up
teaching to work on his project at lower pay. The university ceded rights to
Mauchly and Eckert until administrator Irven Travis reversed course. Dean
Harold Pender then gave Mauchly and Eckert an ultimatum to sign either patent
waivers or resignations on March 22, 1946.

The immediate impact was to disband the talented group that Mauchly and Eckert
had assembled. Perhaps only John von Neumann recognized the importance of
personnel continuity in innovation when he hired Goldstine and tried to hire
Eckert to build a programmable machine at the Institute for Advanced Study.
The lead shifted to England where the first modern computers (digital,
electronic, programmable) were built at Manchester and Cambridge based on
lessons learned from COLOSSUS, ENIAC, and wartime radar research. Today it is
not unusual to find millionaires among computer science faculty. The days of
coddled technicians, stock options, venture capital, and IPOs, were made
possible by the industry Mauchly and Eckert created.

An entertaining but emotional account of ENIAC is the book by Scott McCartney
reviewed by William Aspray at
There is no balanced historical account of the early days of computers.
Scholarly books about individual machines are those by Nancy Stern about
ENIAC, and by Aspray about von Neumann and the IAS computer.

Subject: CfP: Parallel/High-Performance OO Scientific Computing at ECOOP 2006

6th Workshop on
July 3 or 4
at the
Nantes, France, 3-7 July 2006

While object-oriented programming is being embraced in industry, particularly
in the form of C++ and to an increasing extent Java and Python, its acceptance
by the parallel scientific programming community is still tentative. In this
latter domain performance is invariably of paramount importance, where even
the transition from FORTRAN 77 to C is incomplete, primarily because of real
or perceived loss of performance. On the other hand, various factors
practically dictate the use of language features that provide better paradigms
for abstraction: increasingly complex numerical algorithms, application
requirements, and hardware (e.g. deep memory hierarchies, numbers of
processors, multi-core processors, communication and I/O); and the need for
user-level fault tolerance.

This workshop seeks to bring together practitioners and researchers in this
growing field to `compare notes' on their work. The emphasis is on identifying
specific problems impeding greater acceptance and widespread use of
object-oriented programming in scientific computing; proposed and implemented
solutions to these problems; and new or novel approaches, techniques or idioms
for scientific and/or parallel computing. Presentations of work in progress
are welcome.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to: tried or proposed
programming language alternatives to C++; performance issues and their
realized or proposed resolution; issues specific to handling or abstracting
parallelism; specific points of concern for progress and acceptance of
object-oriented scientific computing; existing, developing, or proposed
software; frameworks and tools for scientific object-oriented computing;
schemes for user-level fault tolerance; grand visions (of relevance and

Subject: Meeting in honor of M. Fiedler, 2nd announcement, Jun 06

As previously announced (see NA Digest, Volume 06, Issue 05), a one-day
meeting in honor of Professor Miroslav Fiedler on the occasion of his 80th
birthday will be held on
Monday, June 12, 2006 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The capacity of the lecture hall in downtown Prague where the conference will
take place is limited. The participants are kindly asked to register and
possibly reserve their accommodation on-line on the conference web page
by April 12, 2006 at the latest. The organizing committee has reserved a
limited number of rooms in guest houses of academic institutions which will be
allotted on first-come-first-served basis. Besides that, hotel rooms of
various categories are available. After April 12, registrations will be
accepted up to the overall capacity of the lecture hall, but the organizing
committee will be no longer arranging accommodation. In that case it will have
to be arranged by the participants themselves. The board and lodging expenses
are to be covered by the participants; unfortunately, we cannot offer any
financial support.

The conference is expected to be held from about 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with
two coffee breaks and approximately a one-hour break at noon for lunch in
nearby restaurants. Participants wishing to contribute should submit the title
of their talk together with a short abstract in LaTeX by April 30. In view of
the given time limitations, the organizers reserve the right to accept or
reject the contributions; the authors will be informed by May 12, and the
program will be available at the web site in mid-May.

In the evening the participants are invited to take part in a reception which
will be held from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. The admittance to the reception is free,
as well as the refreshments served during the coffee breaks. There is no
conference fee.

We look forward to see you in Prague.
