Subject: Vectorising code to take advantage of modern CPUs

It is possible to speed up computer programs running on modern
processors by making use of a technique called vectorisation. The basic
idea of vectorisation is that each core in a modern CPU can operate on
multiple values (i.e. a vector) simultaneously per instruction cycle.
A typical modern processor has 4 or more of these vector units (one
per core) where each vector unit can operate on up to 8 single
precision, or 4 double precision, values simultaneously. Thus, it is
possible to obtain speed-ups of up to 32 times using vectorisation
techniques on a modern quad-core processor.

I have collated a summary of techniques and tutorials on vectorisation
over at my blog.

Subject: New GAMM Activity Group MSIP, Germany

The aim of the recently founded new GAMM Activity Group "Mathematical
Signal- and Image Processing" is to foster communication and
collaboration of all researchers or groups interested in mathematical
signal- and image processing. One particular goal is to encourage
close interactions and collaborations between mathematicians, computer
scientists, and engineers working in all areas related to the broad
research field of mathematical signal and image processing.

This includes the application of, for instance, Applied Harmonic
Analysis and Frame Theory, Compressed Sensing, Geometric and
Topological Techniques, Mathematical Morphology, Partial Differential
Equations, Probabilistic and Statistical Methodologies, Variational
Methods, in the exemplary areas of Signal and Image acquisition,
Signal and image processing, Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning.

For our members we provide a newsletter in the area of mathematical
signal and image processing, and to particularly support our young
members, we provide a job forum. Besides an annual meeting of our
group, our members organize various sections at the main international
conferences as well as at the annual GAMM conferences. We also hold
close relations to other international groups with a similar research
focus. For more information, we refer to the website:

Subject: New Book, Computational Intelligence in Image Processing

Computational Intelligence in Image Processing
Amitava Chatterjee and Patrick Siarry (Eds), SPRINGER
ISBN 978-3-642-30620-4. August 2012. 301 pp. Hardcover.

Computational intelligence based techniques have firmly established
themselves as viable, alternate, mathematical tools for more than a
decade. They have been extensively employed in many systems and
application domains, among these signal processing, automatic control,
industrial and consumer electronics, robotics, finance, manufacturing
systems, electric power systems, and power electronics. Image
processing is also an extremely potent area which has attracted the
attention of many researchers who are interested in the development of
new computational intelligence-based techniques and their suitable
applications, in both research problems and in real-world problems.

Part I of the book discusses several image preprocessing algorithms;
Part II broadly covers image compression algorithms; Part III
demonstrates how computational intelligence-based techniques can be
effectively utilized for image analysis purposes; and Part IV shows
how pattern recognition, classification and clustering-based
techniques can be developed for the purpose of image inferencing.

Written for Engineers, researchers and graduate students in computer
science and fields related to image processing, operations research,
information technology, applied mathematics and electronics.

Keywords: Computational intelligence - digital images - digital
watermarking - evolutionary algorithms - evolutionary computing -
fuzzy transforms - genetic programming - image analysis - image
compression - image inferencing - image processing - image retrieval -

Subject: New Book, Intro to Dynamical Systems and Geometric Mechanics

Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Geometric Mechanics
by Jared M. Maruskin, 2012
360 p., ISBN 9780985062705

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fields of
dynamical systems and geometric mechanics in a single volume. The
exposition is concise and clear, and is supplemented with a number of
illuminating examples and exercises. The text offers an ample amount
of flexibility: core sections from both parts of the text may be
reasonably digested in a single-semester introductory graduate-level
course, or the text may be covered in more detail over a two-semester
course. The text also discusses several new results that have yet to
appear in any other textbook, and each chapter concludes with an
application that can serve as a springboard project for further
investigation, projects, or in-class discussion.

In the first part of the text, we discuss linearization and stability
of trajectories and fixed points, invariant manifold theory, periodic
orbits, Poincaré maps, Floquet theory, the Poincaré-Bendixson theorem,
bifurcations, and chaos. The second part of the text begins with a
self-contained chapter on differential geometry that introduces
notions of manifolds, mappings, vector fields, the Jacobi-Lie bracket,
and differential forms. The final chapters cover Lagrangian and
Hamiltonian mechanics from a modern geometric perspective, mechanics
on Lie groups, and nonholonomic mechanics via both moving frames and
fiber bundle decompositions

Subject: Optimization for Smart Cities and Related Apps, Canada, Oct 2012

Workshop on Optimization for Smart Cities and related applications

To be held in within the 18th International Conference on Principles
and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2012) Quebec City, Canada.

Municipal leaders who run the complex network of diverse people,
expected services and aging infrastructure are on a constant search
for more efficient ways to analyze data, anticipate problems and
coordinate resources in their cities. Developing methods for
fulfilling such a need involves, among other things, data analytics
and intelligent sensor dissemination, modeling human demands and
operations and planning, often under uncertainty.

We invite submissions of a short abstract (not more than 4000
characters) describing original work on applications of methods, with
special emphasis on optimization, for "making our cities smarter".
Techniques and applications of interest include (but are not limited
to): Constraint Programming; Mathematical Programming; Hybrid
algorithms; Interconnection between Simulation and Optimization;
Intelligent transportation systems; Electric mobility; Smart grids;
Waste management; Urban planning; Natural resources management; Data
analytics; and Modeling human demands.

Note that registration at the CP2012 conference is necessary to attend
and present at the workshop. Abstracts can be submitted by email to
Andrea Lodi at .

Subject: NLP and Constraint Programming, Canada, Oct 2012

Workshop on Nonlinear Optimization and Constraint Programming
To be held in conjunction with the
18th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint
Programming (CP 2012), Quebec City, Canada

This workshop has the purpose of bringing together scholars that work
on nonlinear optimization, in particular Mixed Integer Nonlinear
Programming (MINLP) problems, which combine nonlinear constraints with
integrality on one or more variables. MINLP and Constraint Programming
(CP) have a significant overlap of techniques, ranging from domain
reduction to implicit enumeration techniques to heuristic algorithms
for finding good feasible solutions. The workshop aims at attracting
both CP and MINLP practitioners to discuss new developments. It is
motivated by recent exciting results in both disciplines.

Invited speakers: Katya Scheinberg and Pascal Van Hentenryck

We encourage the submission of new challenging problems, especially
those that are not available in online libraries such as,
GlobalLib, and MinlpLib. Note that registration at the CP2012
conference is necessary to attend and present at the workshop.
