The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of

Haifa, Haifa, Israel, is looking for Hebrew-speaking faculty members

in computer science, and especially in artificial intelligence, software

engineering, and in the application of advanced mathematical techniques

to the design of computer systems.

Applicants are requested to send a curriculum vitae to me via BITNET or

to write to directly to the university.

Does anyone know of a book that gives examples of numerical computation

using C, along the lines of "Numerical Recipes?" Such books seem

not to exist.

Please reply to me directly if possible, as I am not a regular reader.

Faculty Positions

Department of Statistics

Temple University

We have the following openings for September 1988: at least

one tenure-track position, rank open, for a statistician with

an excellent record of published theoretical and applied

research, and several visiting positions for statisticians

active in research and teaching. Biostatisticians and

researchers specializing in categorical data analysis are

particularly encouraged to apply.

The Department of Statistics has 24 full-time and 10

affiliated faculty, and 50 students in our M.S.-Ph.D.

programs. We have our own UNIX-based VAX 11/750 computer

and Sun Workstations, and Statistics Library. Extensive

computing and library facilities are also available

throughout the University. The Department is located on

the main Temple Campus, close to Philadelphia's center

city with its many cultural, dining and shopping

opportunities.

To apply, send your CV and three letters of reference to

Burt Holland, Recruiting Committee Chair, Department of

Statistics, Speakman Hall, 006-00, Temple University,

Philadelphia PA 19122. Temple University is an

affirmative-action/equal opportunity employer. Women

and minorities are encouraged to apply.

NSF-CBMS REGIONAL CONFERENCE

ON

MATHEMATICAL FOUNDATIONS OF THE BOUNDARY ELEMENT METHOD

The University of Kentucky will host an NSF-CBMS Regional Conference on

Mathematical Foundations of the Boundary Element Method with Wolfgang L.

Wendland of the University of Stuttgart as the Principal Lecturer. This

conference has been funded by the National Science Foundation and will

be held on the campus of the University of Kentucky in Lexington,

Kentucky, during the period May 9-13, 1988. Professor Wendland will

deliver a series of ten lectures covering the following topics:

- Representation formulas and boundary potentials

- Boundary integral equations as pseudo-differential

operators

- Variational formulation and strong ellipticity

- Stability and convergence of Galerkin methods for strongly

elliptic problems

- Boundary element Galerkin methods for strongly elliptic

problems

- Collocation boundary element methods for two-dimensional

problems

- Collocation boundary element methods in three dimensions

- Numerical integration

- Singularities

- Open problems

There will be additional lectures by invited speakers, and time will be

provided for group discussions among participants. Some contributed

talks may also be scheduled. Partial support for a limited number of

participants is available.

Which public-domain programs are available for the minimization of

non-convex piecewise-smooth real functions f(x), x a vector of n>>1

real variables (no constraints), and how can they be obtained?

Any information is appreciated.

>From: Bas Braams <BBRAAMS%PPC.MFENET@NMFECC.ARPA>

To: NA@SCORE.STANFORD.EDU

I would like to know of good software for evaluating Legendre functions of

the first kind, degree equal to half an odd integer, order either integral

or half-integral, and argument real and greater than one. That is:

P_sub_nu_super_mu(cosh(eta))

where

nu+1/2 is an integer,

either mu is an integer or mu+1/2 is an integer,

eta is real.

Please reply to na.braams@score.stanford.edu or to

bbraams%ppc.mfenet@nmfecc.arpa .

This digest is the first to be sent out through our new distribution

mechanism. This same digest almost made it out yesterday but there

was a problem and I suspect that hardly anybody got it. So here it

is again.

If anybody gets this message twice please let me know. Yesterdays

attempt didn't have this addition and I am not interested to know

if anybody got yesterdays attempt, only this exact message.

Externally, everything should be the same:

submissions to broadcast: na@score.stanford.edu

requests to the NA-NET: na-request@score.stanford.edu

or na.request@score.stanford.edu

Problems: na.problem@score.stanford.edu

Mail to person on list: na.LastName@score.stanford.edu

for example, na.golub@score == Gene Golub.
