Subject: Conservation properties of linear solvers


I am looking for iterative solvers for
linear equations of the type


where A may be singular. The solution x should preserve the
linear invariants with respect to A, such that v^Tx=3Dv^Tb for
eigenvectors v belonging to the null space of A^T. An application
is the solution of the advection equation on periodic domains by
implicit time integration methods.

Subject: Finite Element Software deal.II Ver 7.0.0 released

Version 7.0 of deal.II, the object-oriented finite element
library awarded the J. H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software,
has been released. It is available for free under an OpenSource
license from the deal.II home-page at

Version 7.0 is a major step forward. Its new features include:
- Support for massively parallel computations that has been shown
to scale to at least 16,384 processors and a new tutorial
program that shows its use. The user code for a massively
parallel, fully adaptive Laplace solver is only some 20 lines
of code longer than its sequential version.
- While 2d and 3d programs could always use almost exactly the
same code, dimension independent programming has become simpler
by making sure that 1d now works in exactly the same way.
- A tutorial program on the discretization of PDE on manifolds.
- Nedelec elements are now available to arbitrary order.
- deal.II is now linked into a single library.
- A graphical user interface for input parameter files.
All main features have been continued and improved:
- Support for dimension-independent programming
- Extensive documentation and working example programs
- Locally refined adaptive meshes
- Multigrid support
- A zoo of different finite elements
- Fast linear algebra
- Support for shared memory and distributed parallel computing
- Interfaces to Trilinos, PETSc, METIS, UMFPACK and other
external software
- Output for a wide variety of visualization platforms.

Subject: Reminder: Nominations for the Householder Award

The Alston S. Householder Award is given every three years for
the best PhD dissertation in numerical linear algebra. It is
presented at the triennial Householder Symposium on Numerical
Linear Algebra, which will be held on June 12-17, 2011. We
solicit nominations of dissertations by the candidate's PhD
advisor. To be eligible, the dissertation must have been
submitted between Jan 1, 2008 and Dec 31, 2010. The deadline for
submission is Feb 1, 2011.

Details, including submission instructions and a list of prior
winners, may be found at

The term numerical linear algebra is intended to describe those
parts of mathematical research that have both linear algebraic
aspects and numerical content or implications. Thus, for example,
a dissertation concerned with the numerical solution of
differential equations, optimization problems, signal processing,
or control problems would be eligible if linear algebra is
central to the research contribution.

Entries will be assessed by an international committee consisting
of Michele Benzi (Emory U.), James Demmel (UC Berkeley, Chair),
Howard Elman (U. Maryland), Volker Mehrmann (TU Berlin),
Sabine Van Huffel (Catholic U. Leuven) and
Stephen Vavasis (U. Waterloo).

Subject: New Book, Shapes and Geometries, Second Edition

Announcing the December 22, 2010, publication by SIAM of
Shapes and Geometries: Metrics, Analysis, Differential Calculus,
and Optimization, 2nd Ed., Michel Delfour and Jean-Paul Zol=E9sio

xvii + 622 pages / Hardcover / ISBN 978-0-898719-36-9 /
List $119.00 / SIAM Member Price $83.30 / Order Code DC22

This considerably enriched new edition provides a self-contained
presentation of the mathematical foundations, constructions, and
tools necessary for studying problems where the modeling,
optimization, or control variable is the shape or the structure
of a geometric object. The book presents the latest
ground-breaking theoretical foundation to shape optimization in a
form that can be used by the engineering and scientific
communities. It also clearly explains the state-of-the-art
developments in a mathematical language that will attract
mathematicians to open questions in this important field. A
series of generic examples has been added to the introduction and
special emphasis has been put on the construction of important
metrics. It is intended for applied mathematicians and advanced
engineers and scientists, but the book is also structured as an
initiation to shape analysis and calculus techniques for a
broader audience of mathematicians. Some chapters are
self-contained and can be used as lecture notes for a
minicourse. The material at the beginning of each chapter is
accessible to a broad audience, while the subsequent sections may
sometimes require more mathematical maturity.

Subject: Postdoc Position in Eng/Phys Modeling at ERDC-CHL

Engineering/Mathematical and Physical Modeling Project at
U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Coastal &
Hydraulics Lab (ERDC-CHL) in Vicksburg, Mississippi

Project #ERDC-CHL-LC-2010-311

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Coastal
& Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) performs research on ocean,
estuarine, riverine, and watershed systems in support of the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Department of
Defense (DoD) Task Force in support of the Ocean Commission. A
multi-disciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and support
personnel work in CHL's internationally known, unique
facilities. This team has developed state-of-the-art experimental
and computational models for solving water resource problems
worldwide. CHL research and development addresses water resource
and navigation challenges in a variety of hydrodynamic systems
include aquifers, watersheds, rivers, reservoirs, lakes,
estuaries, harbors, coastal inlets, and wetlands. Physical
facilities of approximately 1.7 million square feet and
high-performance computing facilities at the DoD Supercomputing
Research Center ( are the basic
infrastructure for producing cutting- edge products for
successful coastal, inland water resources, and navigation
management. CHL work, although primarily in support of the DoD
and the Corp's districts, also interfaces with other federal,
state and local agencies, academia, conservation groups, and the
general public, as appropriate.

The Research Participation Program for USACE-ERDC-CHL provides
opportunities to participate in new and on-going applied research
and development projects. Research projects range from design
guidance to three-dimensional computational models. Focus is
placed on inland and coastal navigation, military logistics over
the shore, dredging, flood control, storm and erosion protection,
waterway restoration, fish passage, hydro-environmental modeling,
water/land management, and other water and sediment-related
issues facing the nation.

Two postdoctoral research appointments are available at the
Hydrologic Systems Branch, Flood and Storm Protection Division of
the Coastal & Hydraulics Laboratory, Vicksburg, Mississippi. The
participant will conduct advanced research and development in
computational engineering and applied mathematics and integrate
it with existing CHL research and development projects.

This appointment includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Research and development for a wide range of military and
civilian engineering projects that depend on state-of-the-art
models for hydrodynamic processes including: free-surface flow,
turbulent flow, subsurface flow, sediment transport, reactive
transport, and fluid/structure interaction, utilizing on-site,
high-performance computing facilities at the ERDC DSRC.
Participants may be stationed at top academic research centers or
at CHL and are expected to incorporate state-of-the-art
techniques and tools from their research directly into CHL
computational models. =84XApplicants should demonstrate detailed
knowledge of a promising avenue of research. Research areas of
particular interest to CHL include mathematical models for
understanding surface and subsurface processes in natural and
engineered environments and computational methods that
significantly improve or extend simulation capabilities for
multi-scale, multi-physics processes such as multi-phase flow,
fluid/structure interaction, morphology change, and environmental
fate and transport.

Applicants should have received a doctoral degree in engineering,
mathematics, physics or related discipline within five years of
the desired starting date, or completion of all requirements for
the degree should be expected on or about the starting date. The
program is open to all qualified U.S. citizens and Legal
Permanent Residents without regard to race, sex, religion, color,
age, physical or mental disability, national origin, or status as
a Vietnam era or disabled veteran. Other applicants will be
considered on a case-by-case basis.
