Subject: Short Term Academic Appointments in Queensland




The Mathematics Department expects to have funds for one
or more appointments in the above areas in calendar 1989. The
positions would not carry tenure, and would be for the
full year or for a six month period spanning a teaching
semester (Feb-June, July-Nov).

Applications are welcomed from junior or senior people. Salary
would be negotiated.

The positions involve teaching 2 undergraduate courses per
semester from the above areas, and contributing to the
research activities of the department.

The research interests of staff members in these areas
include the numerical solution of integral equations,
the numerical solution of inverse problems, discrete
optimization methods and their application to industrial
problem solving and numerical software development in ADA.

The department is equipped with a PYRAMID 9810 supermini
computer, Sun workstations and a range of PC equipment.

Applicants should send a brief letter of application with
their c.v. and the names of 2 referees to

Dr V.G.Hart
Head of Department
Department of Mathematics

Subject: Hypersonics Conference

The University of Texas,Austin, the USAFA and GAMNI/SMAI



16-20 January 1989

at the

U.S. Air Force Academy

Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

The First Joint Europe/U.S. Short Course in Hypersonics, which was held
in Paris in December 1987 (cf March SIAM News, Hypersonics experts meet)
brought together Chemists, Computer Scientits, Engineers, Experimentalists,
Mathematicians and Physicists to discuss hypersonics flows related to
aerospace applications (published proceedings will be available). Building on
this foundation, the second course will offer presentations by internationally
known hypersonic experts over a wide range of subjects. Presentations on non
equilibrium thermochemistry, rarefied gas dynamics, hypersonic boundary
layers (including transition), ground based testing, computational
fluid dynamics and flight testing should interest post-gradaute students,
designers and researchers.
