Subject: New Book, Parameterized, Deformed and General Neural Networks

George A. Anastassiou

This monograph is the continuation of author's earlier three
monographs. Here we introduce the parametrized, deformed and general
activation function neural networks. The parametrized activation
function kills much less neurons than the original one. The asymmetry
of the brain is best expressed by deformed activation functions. We
provide also the related neural network theory using general
activation functions. Thus, in this monograph all presented is
original work by the author given at a very general level to cover a
maximum number of different kinds of Neural Networks over a wide list
of activation functions: giving ordinary, fractional, fuzzy and
stochastic approximations. Namely it is presented here univariate,
fractional and multivariate approximations. Iterated-sequential
multi-layer approximations are also covered. The functions under
approximation and neural networks are Banach space valued.

Subject: Winter School, Hierarchical Matrices, Germany, Feb 2024

Winter School on Hierarchical Matrices
Date: 5th to 9th of February, 2024
Location: Christian-Albrechts-Universitat zu Kiel, Kiel, Germany

Hierarchical matrices offer an efficient approach to handling
non-local operator resulting, e.g., from the discretization of an
integral equation or the inversion of a partial differential
equation. They rely on a decomposition of a matrix into sub-matrices
of low numerical rank that can be represented efficiently in
factorized form. Taking advantage of this representation, operations
like the matrix-vector multiplication, matrix multiplication,
inversion, factorization, evaluation of matrix functions or solution
of matrix equations can be performed in almost linear complexity.

The winter school is split into lectures and practical exercises. The
lectures present the fundamental concepts and algorithms. The
exercises use the H2Lib software package to allow the participants to
experience the discussed methods first-hand and discuss specific
questions with experts in the field.

Participation at the site of the workshop is preferred. On request,
online participation can be made possible.

Limited funds will be available to support the participation of young
scientists financially. If you are interested, please send a
motivation letter and a supporting letter.

Participants are requested to bring their own laptops capable of
compiling and running programs written in C.

Be part of Mathematics Munster!

The Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Munster: Dynamics - Geometry -
Structure at the University of Munster, Germany invites applications
for postdoctoral positions in all fields of mathematics related to the
work being undertaken at Mathematics Munster.

We offer full positions (100% FTE, salary level E13 TV-L) for three
years. Positions are available in all fields of mathematics related to
the work being undertaken at Mathematics Munster. Benefit from the
amenities of the Cluster of Excellence, including funding for
conference travel, attendance of summer schools, hosting guest
researchers, and organising academic events.

Subject: Postdoc Positions, Wave Phenomena, KIT, Germany

The Collaborative Research Center 1173 at Karlsruhe Institute of
Technology is inviting applications for Postdoctoral Positions (2
years) in the area of analysis or numerics of wave phenomena,
particularly the analysis or numerics of PDEs.

Positions are fully funded (T-VL E13, full-time)
Application deadline is November 20th, 2023.

Subject: PhD Position, Appl Mathematics/Comp Mechanics, TU Dresden

The Institute of Scientific Computing at TU Dresden is looking for PhD
candidates (full- or part-time, salary grade E13, duration initially 3
years) within the coordinated programmes DFG-Research Training Group
"Vector- and tensor-valued surface PDEs" and EU-Marie SkBodowska-
Curie Doctoral Network "DurAMat".

The research focus is on modeling and simulation of thin structures in
nature and man-made systems. These structures display fascinating and
often unexpected mechanical properties that enable countless
applications, but have proven challenging to model and
simulate. Within the projects we focus on multiphase field and phase
field crystal models to resolve the individual building blocks and
coarse grained models.

Requirements: Successfully completed university degree (Master or
equivalent) in mathematics, theoretical pysics or mechanics.
Excellent knowledge in numerics for partial differential equations
and/or differential geometry and/or physics and mechanics of thin
structures and experience in scientific programming.

The coordinated PhD program will be done in close coopreation with
participating universities in Warwick (UK) and Gothenburg (Sweden).

Please send full application inclucing a motivation for application, a
CV, and copies of your certificates to Prof. Dr. Axel Voigt
axel.voigt@tu- until November 15th 2023.

Subject: PhD Position, Numerical Analysis, Univ of Bonn, Germany

The Institute for Numerical Simulation (INS) is looking for a research
assistant (75%, with possibility of obtaining a PhD) in the area of
numerical analysis or a period of three years as soon as possible. The
research group of Prof. Barbara Verfurth at University of Bonn is
interested in the design and numerical analysis of computational
multiscale methods. The candidate will work on the project
"Homogenization of time-varying metamaterials", which is funded by DFG
within the Collaborative Research Center 1173 Wave phenomena. The
project is in collaboration with physicists at Karlsruhe Institute of

Candidates should have a Master's degree in mathematics (or closely
related field) with a strong background in the theory of numerical
methods for partial differential equations and numerical
analysis. Some programming knowledge is highly beneficial.

The Institute or Numerical Simulation covers research and teaching of
numerical analysis, simulation and scientific computing. It is part of
Bonn Mathematics and provides a stimulating research environment.

The Ph.D. Programs in the Department of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at
New Jersey Institute of Technology provide students with training and
research experience in the methods of applied mathematics, statistics,
and computing needed to tackle real-world problems in science and
engineering. DMS invites candidates to apply for one of our doctoral
program tracks: (1) Applied Mathematics or (2) Applied Probability and
Statistics. The interdisciplinary research in DMS spans Scientific
Computing, Fluid Dynamics, Materials Science, Wave Propagation,
Applied Analysis, Mathematical Biology and Computational Neuroscience,
and Applied Probability and Statistics, including Biostatistics and
Data Science. DMS offers teaching and research assistantships, which
include a tuition waiver, a competitive stipend starting at $25,000
per academic year, and, pending funding availability, at least $3,500
in summer support. The application target date is December 15, 2023,
but the review will continue until all available positions are filled.
