Subject: Robert Bartels

I would like to report, with considerable regret, the passing of my father,
Robert C. F. Bartels, retired professor of Applied Mathematics at the
University of Michigan and retired director of the University of Michigan
Computing Center.

Although Robert Bartels' name is not directly associated
with important publications, theorems, or algorithms,
he has contributed to the 20th century's bloom in numerical analysis
and computer science as an eager facilitator. He took pride and pleasure
in establishing conditions within which other people could flourish
and achieve. For 15 years during the 50's and 60's he was responsible
for the numerical analysis sections of the University of Michigan Engineering
Summer Conferences, a series of courses that drew together lectures from
people such as Alston Householder, Jim Wilkinson, Richard Varga,
Fritz Bauer, Wallace Givens and Virginia Klema. The chance to spend time
together discussing research for these and others of such stature finds
resonance today in the Householder Symposia, and the Summer Conferences
contributed, through this opportunity for interaction, to some of the early
ferment in numerical linear algebra and numerical software. One of the
many beneficiaries of these summer schools was Carl de Boor, then an employe
at the General Motors Technical Center.
When de Boor expressed an interest in getting a PhD,
Bartels organized his acceptance into the U.Michigan graduate school,
and served as his nominal supervisor. In late 1958, when the University
of Michigan planned to move its small computer operation off campus
and discontinue general computer access to students
and faculty, Robert Bartels embarked on a successful campaign to reverse
this decision and to establish a viable central computing facility to
support teaching, research, and administration. He became the Computing
Center's first director in 1959 and remained at its helm until his
retirement in 1978. During his tenure as director he actively supported
the development of Computer Science education and research at the
University of Michigan, and with his facilitation and the support he
gained from IBM and later Ahmdal, the University of Michigan Computing
Center developed the MAD language and compiler, an Algol 58 variant,
the MTS operating system, one of the early multi-terminal time-sharing
systems, and pioneering techniques in hardware and operating-system
support for virtual memory.

I can't think of anyone who did not personally like him, appreciate his
honest open nature and willingness to help, or admire his interest and
concern for others.

Subject: Ted Rivlin

Dear Colleagues,

I am sorry to write that Ted Rivlin passed away on July 22 after a long illness.
For many years, Ted was a leading figure in approximation theory and
produced an elegant book, "Chebyshev Polynomials: From Approximation Theory to
Algebra and Number Theory." Anothere fine book is "Introduction to the
Approximation of Functions".
Through most of his years, he was employed at IBM Research where he was part
of a very strong department. We were fortunate to have him as a visitor at

Besides Ted's technical achievements, he was a true gentleman and had a
wonderful command of the language.
I'm sure his wife Jean would be pleased to hear from those who knew him, her
address is

Subject: Note on SIAM News Article

The current issue of SIAM News (Volume 39, Number 7, September, 2006)
features an article by Michelle Sipics beginning on p. 1, ``Taking on the
ITER Challenge, Scientists Look to Innovative Algorithms, Petascale
Computers.'' The article deserves not only interest but also praise. It is
timely, absorbing, trenchant.

One correction to make a note of without any effect on the pleasing style
of the writing, the technical content, or the overall dramatic importance
of the issues: Proud new colleagues of Thomas Sterling, who is interviewed
in the article, would no doubt like to see an update to his academic
affiliation, which is now Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, where
he is a member of the Department of Computer Science and the Center for
Computation and Technology.

Subject: New Book: Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems

I'd like to announce a new book in the SIAM Series on the Fundamental of
Algorithms (,
entitled "Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems." The goal of the
book is to illustrate the theory and practice of direct methods for
solving sparse linear systems. Towards that end, a new package was
written for the book: CSparse, a Concise Sparse matrix package. Its
2200 lines of C are printed in their entirety in the book, and available
for download at A
MATLAB interface is provided.

Topics in the book (and methods in CSparse) include basic algorithms and
data structures (triplet form, compressed column form, add, multiply,
transpose, permute, norms), solving triangular systems with both dense
and sparse right-hand sides, Cholesky, LU and QR factorizations,
Cholesky update/downdate, ordering methods (minimum degree and dmperm;
profile orderings and nested dissection are done as short m-files), and
finally culminating in x=A\b. The book also describes how MATLAB
performs its sparse matrix computations.

Subject: Workshop on Scientific Computing and Computational Geodynamics

CIG Workshop on Challenges and Opportunities at the Interfaces of
Scientific Computing and Computational Geodynamics (Oct. 16-17, 2006)

Computational Science Roundtable (Oct. 18, 2006)

University of Texas at Austin
Austin, Texas

The Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG) will sponsor a
two-day workshop on October 16-17, 2006 that brings together
computational geodynamicists and scientific computing experts to
identify and assess challenges and opportunities at the interfaces of
frontier computational geodynamics problems and scalable numerical and
geometric algorithms and software. Following the workshop, the CIG
Science Steering Committee (SSC) will host a computational science
roundtable to focus the workshop discussions on CIG's software
development roadmap.

The goals of the workshop are (1) to identify the scientific computing
issues and obstacles encountered in computational geodynamics
simulations as they continue to scale up in size and complexity; (2)
to assess the prospects of state-of-the-art scientific computing
algorithms and software in addressing the complexities of
computational geodynamics problems; and (3) to define directions for
scientific computing research that meet the challenges presented by
geodynamics problems.

The workshop will include talks by application scientists discussing
contemporary modeling techniques, while highlighting open
computational science problems at the frontiers of the areas of
short-term crustal dynamics, long-term deformation, geodynamo, global
seismology, mantle convection, and magma migration. Complementing the
geodynamics presentations, scientific computing researchers will
present talks that address challenges in geology-aware large-scale
mesh generation and adaptation, linear solvers and preconditioners for
ill-conditioned problems, nonlinear solvers and operator splitting
techniques for complex coupled problems, data formats and management,
and parallel scientific visualization. Issues in software frameworks
and quality assurance of open-source libraries supporting complex
large-scale computations will also be discussed.

Computational geodynamicists and scientific computing researchers are
invited to attend and participate in the workshop discussions, and
present a poster at the poster session.

Subject: PhD Studentship at University of Reading

At the Data Assimilation Research Centre, University of Reading (UK)
a PhD studentship on "Numerical Weather Prediction of High-Impact Weather"
is available. Please see details below.

Numerical Weather Prediction of High-Impact Weather
Supervisors: Dr Stefano Migliorini, Dr Ross Bannister, Prof. Alan
O'Neill, Dr Mark Dixon, and Sue Ballard

Location: Department of Meteorology, University of Reading

Improving predictions of hazardous weather is currently one of the main challenges for
operational meteorological centres. Such phenomena often impact on very localised regions
(as in the case of the Boscastle flood in 2004) and current operational models do not have
enough spatial resolution for predicting them reliably and with the required accuracy.

The Met Office is currently experimenting with 4 km and 1.5 km spatial resolution versions
of the Unified Model over a limited spatial region. This can potentially lead to
improvements in forecasts of severe convective storms, which may lead to hazardous events
such as flooding.

However, many difficulties still need to be addressed on how observational information
is combined with model data, a process called data assimilation. The focus of this PhD
project will be to investigate the applicability of an advanced data assimilation
framework, called Ensemble Kalman Filter, to convective-scale data assimilation
for a high-resolution version of the Unified Model.

For further details about the project please see
and then contact Dr Stefano Migliorini (
if you have any further questions.
