Subject: Improved version, A Possible Proof of Goldbach's Conjecture

The Conjecture asserts that each even positive integer >= 4 is the sum
of two primes. The improved version of the possible proof (2-1/2
pages) is simpler than previous ones. The paper also contains a
description of the remarkable behavior of pairs of primes relative to
each even positive integer.

I will welcome comments.

Subject: Postdoc Position, ML and Data Assimilation, Colorado State, USA

The project idea is to perform many runs with cloud model CM1 to
simulate and understand the formation of shallow cumulus clouds over
land from early morning until early afternoon. This part is based on
increasing understanding of this delicate process. We then machine
learn the relation between meteorological variables of the early
morning and cloud cover in early afternoon. As a next step we will
perform data assimilation with CM1 to obtain a better description and
understanding of the shallow-cumulus formation process. The
data-assimilation results will also be used to fine-tune the machine
learning model. The project is a collaboration between the research
groups of profs Van Leeuwen and Chiu at Colorado State University.

computations, estimation of principal components, computation of
canonical correlations, several cluster analysis algorithms, and the
solution of total least squares problems. Applications of matrix
computations and statistics in data mining, text mining, dimension
reduction/feature extraction and machine learning are welcome.

CSDA has published a series of issues in Matrix Computations and
Statistics (41(1), 50(1), 54(12)), which can be found at:

Submissions for the 4th special issue should contain both a matrix
computations and a statistics component. Authors who are uncertain
about the suitability of their papers should contact the special issue
editors. All submissions must contain original unpublished work not
being considered for publication elsewhere.

Submissions will be refereed according to standard procedures for
Computational Statistics and Data Analysis. Information about the
journal can be found at

The deadline for submissions is 30 August 2024. However, papers can be
submitted at any time; and, when they have been received, they will
enter the editorial system immediately.

Papers for the special issue should be submitted using the Elsevier
Electronic Submission tool EM:
In the EM, please choose the special issue "Matrix Computations and
Statistics" and the Co-Editor responsible for the special issues.
