Subject: Question: Is there a name for this trivial "algorithm" ?

The following may sound like a dumb question because the "algorithm" is so
trivial but I was wondering if there was a name for this algorithm:

You are trying to infer an m x n matrix A with unknown elements. The only
method of learning about this matrix is through applying matrix vector
products Ax = y. That is, you construct a vector x, perform a multiplication
Ax, and finally analyze the resulting vector y of observations. The algorithm
trivially revolves around using vectors of the canonical basis thereby
providing direct access to the columns of A.

This algorithm can be directly implemented in n steps and therefore requires n
matrix vector products.

I am interested in a compressive sensing approach to this matrix discovery
algorithm when one knows in advance that the matrix A is sparse and one wants
to reduce the number of matrix-vector steps from n to O(k log(n)) where k
represents the sparsity of matrix A. See the following link: for more information on how to approach this problem.

If you have any ideas on the name of this algorithm (the trivial one), please
send suggestions to:

Subject: 25th anniversary of MathWorks Matlab

Twenty-five years ago, on 7 February 1985, I placed the first
order for a commercial copy of Matlab. I was a junior faculty
member at MIT, and the price was $500 for ten licenses.
I didn't know at the time that mine was the first order; I was
informed of this some years later.

Congratulations to Cleve, Jack, and MathWorks on your
first quarter-century!

the scientific and engineering significance of the solution is clearly stated.
Each chapter contains a summary of the important concepts developed in that
chapter, suggestions for further reading, and numerous exercises, both
theoretical and MATLAB« and MATCOM based. The author also provides a list of
key words for quick reference.

This book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students in applied and
computational mathematics, scientific computing, computer science, financial
mathematics, actuarial sciences, and electrical and mechanical engineering. It
will also appeal to researchers in mathematics, computer science, physics,

Subject: New book, The Geometry of Random Fields

Announcing the publication by SIAM of:

The Geometry of Random Fields
Robert J. Adler

2010 / xxii + 280 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-0-898716-93-1 / List Price
$89.00 / SIAM Member Price $59.50 / Order Code CL62

Originally published in 1981, The Geometry of Random Fields remains an
important text for its coverage and exposition of the theory of both smooth
and nonsmooth random fields; closed form expressions for various geometric
characteristics of the excursion sets of smooth, stationary, Gaussian random
fields over N-dimensional rectangles; descriptions of the local behavior of
random fields in the neighborhoods of high maxima; and a treatment of the
Markov property for Gaussian fields.

The core audience of the book is researchers in probability and statistics,
with no prior knowledge of geometry required. Since the book was originally
published it has become a standard reference in areas of physical
oceanography, cosmology, and neuroimaging. It is written at a level accessible
to nonspecialists, including advanced undergraduates and early graduate students.

Subject: New book, Mathematics of Social Choice

Announcing the publication by SIAM of:

Mathematics of Social Choice: Voting, Compensation, and Division, by Christoph

2010 / xii + 245 pages / Softcover / 978-0-898716-95-5 / List Price $35.00 /
SIAM Members $24.50 / Order Code OT119

How do you select a winner from a field of candidates? How do you rank a field
of candidates? How do you share a divisible resource like a cake, or an
indivisible one like a pet or a house? These are the questions addressed in
this fun and accessible book that takes an entertaining look at the choices
made by groups of people with different preferences, needs, and interests.

Divided into three parts, the text first examines voting methods for selecting
or ranking candidates. A brief second part addresses compensation problems
wherein an indivisible item must be assigned to one of several people who are
equally entitled to ownership of the item, with monetary compensation paid to
the others. The third part discusses the problem of sharing a divisible
resource among several people.

This book is primarily addressed to readers without a high-level mathematical
background, such as college students majoring in subjects other than
mathematics and advanced high school students. However, some material
appropriate for more sophisticated readers is also included and makes the text
appealing to undergraduate mathematics majors interested in learning about
applications of mathematics in the social sciences.

Subject: PHD and postodoctoral positions available at IACM/FORTH

PHD and postodoctoral positions are available for the research project

ADAPTIVES has been approved for funding by the European Research Council,
through a Starting Independent Research Grand awarded to Chrysoula Tsogka
Associate Professor at the Dept. of Applied Mathematics, University of Crete
and researcher at IACM/FORTH. Duration of project: 5 years.

Short summary of the project: Waves are been used for the detection and
imaging of objects for many years. We all know the radar, which uses
electromagnetic waves, the sonar that is based on acoustic waves, and medical
ultrasound. In most of these applications the materials encountered in
practice are often complex and their properties are not known - and cannot be
estimated - in every detail. We, therefore, model the propagation medium as a
random process for which we know some statistical properties.
Our goal is to solve the imaging problem in a regime where multipathing due to
the heterogeneities is important. The challenge is to produce reliable, i.e.,
statistically stable, results, especially when there is no a priori knowledge
about the propagation medium.

The research to be carried out in the project ADAPTIVES needs young
researchers to get involved. Requirements are background in and/or an interest
in scientific computing, numerical solution of differential equations (in
particular wave propagation) and inverse problems. The candidates will be
funded by the European Research Council.
Applications should comprise of a letter of motivation, a CV plus the names
and contact information of two individuals who have agreed to send letters of
