Subject: News from PARALUTION

It has been a long time without news on PARALUTION. But finally, after
months of hard work, I am very pleased to announce that the library
will be hosted by AMD in the future. This gives us the opportunity, to
fully exploit the available performance of AMD GPUs and CPUs using our
single- and multi-node version. Furthermore, all previously available
license models will be combined into a single open-source package
under MIT License, and therefore available to you without any
additional licensing costs!

The brand new rocALUTION library, that offers all these great features
is released on GitHub as part of the ROCm 1.9 software platform

Looking forward to your feedback, and to answer all of your questions!

Subject: PLTMG 13 released on Netlib

PLTMG 13.0 is a package for solving elliptic partial differential
equations in general regions of the plane. It is based on a family of
continuous Lagrange triangular finite elements. PLTMG features
options for adaptive h, p, and hp refinement, coarsening, and mesh
moving. PLTMG employs several algebraic multilevel solvers for the
resulting systems of equations. PLTMG provides a suite of
continuation options to handle PDEs with parameter dependencies. It
also provides options for solving several classes of optimal control
and obstacle problems. The package includes an initial mesh generator
and several graphics packages. Support for the Bank-Holst parallel
adaptive meshing paradigm and corresponding domain decomposition
solver are also provided.

PLTMG is provided as Fortran90 and a little C source code. The code
has an interface to MPI. The MPI interface requires libraries that are
NOT provided as part of the PLTMG package. PLTMG 13.0 uses Chris
Deotte's package WEBGUI 1.0 as its graphical user interface. WEBGUI
1.0 is included as part of the PLTMG source code, but is also
available independently. PLTMG 13.0 is available from Netlib and also
from the author's homepage.

Subject: New Book, Core-Chasing Algorithms For The Eigenvalue Problem

Eigenvalue computations are ubiquitous in science and
engineering. John Francis's implicitly shifted QR algorithm has been
the method of choice for small to medium sized eigenvalue problems
since its invention in 1959. This book presents a new view of this
classical algorithm. While Francis's original procedure chases bulges,
the new version chases core transformations, which allows the
development of fast algorithms for eigenvalue problems with a variety
of special structures. This also leads to a fast and backward stable
algorithm for computing the roots of a polynomial by solving the
companion matrix eigenvalue problem. The authors received a SIAM
Outstanding Paper prize for this work.

Subject: New Book, Numerical Analysis Of PDEs Using Maple And Matlab

This book provides an elementary yet comprehensive introduction to the
numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). Used to
model important phenomena, such as the heating of apartments and the
behavior of electromagnetic waves, these equations have applications
in engineering and the life sciences, and most can only be solved
approximately using computers.

Numerical Analysis of Partial Differential Equations Using Maple and
MATLAB provides detailed descriptions of the four major classes of
discretization methods for PDEs (finite difference method, finite
volume method, spectral method, and finite element method) and
runnable MATLAB code for each of the discretization methods and
exercises. It also gives self-contained convergence proofs for each
method using the tools and techniques required for the general
convergence analysis but adapted to the simplest setting to keep the
presentation clear and complete.

Subject: Call for Papers, CAMWA Special Issue, Open-Source PDE Solvers

Computers & Mathematics with Applications (Elsevier, current impact
factor 1.860) will launch a special issue dedicated to open-source
numerical solvers for partial differential equations (PDEs).

The primary purpose of this special issue is to provide an overview of
the progress in this rapidly developing area and to identify current
trends and near-term prospects in connection with the algorithm
design, theoretical development, and various areas of application of
open- source software for PDEs. Our goal is to let authors focus on
the software design, algorithms, applications and future prospects of
open source PDE solvers. Articles focusing on these topics are usually
very difficult to publish in refereed journals in either applied
mathematics, or engineering, or computer science. In addition, we
attempt to facilitate better communication between the authors and the
users of such packages by providing the developers with a forum to
present their work and supplying an up-to-date list of open source PDE
solvers. Major numerical methods covered in this special issues
include, but not limited to, finite difference methods, finite element
methods, finite volume methods, spectral methods, meshfree/meshless
methods (e.g. LBM and SPH), gradient discretization methods, domain
decomposition methods, time discretization methods, as well as
multigrid methods (in conjunction with spatial discretization).

The guest editors of this special issue invite authors of open-source
packages interested in having their package listed in the editorial as
well as the potential contributors to the special issue to fill out by
November 30th a short information sheet
( Please note that, required
by the journal, a printed published paper must contain at least 15
pages. The estimated manuscript submission deadline is June 30,
2019. The guest editors encourage you to help spreading this "Call for
Papers" to your colleagues and collaborators active in this area.
