**Subject: Babuska Prize Awarded to Pavel Solin**

1999 BABUSKA PRIZE AWARDED

In December 1999, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the

Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the

I. Babuska Prize for the best work in computer science submitted

by students and young scientists.

The Prize winner for 1999 is Dr Pavel Solin from the Faculty of

Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague. The

work honored was his PhD thesis On the method of lines.

Further winners were delivered diplomas of honor. The second was

Dr Ludek Kovar from the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the

University of West Bohemia in Pilsen with his PhD thesis

Modeling of dynamic properties of complex mechanical systems

composed of subsystems by the method of modal synthesis.

The third position was taken by Dr Jan H. Brandts (now at the

Utrecht University, the Netherlands) who presented his paper

Calculation of invariant subspaces of large and sparse matrices

written during his postdoctoral stay in the Institute of

Computer Science of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech

Republic in Prague.

A further diploma of honor was delivered to a diploma work. In

this category, Jiri Prchal from the Faculty of Transportation

Sciences of the Czech Technical University in Prague was honored

for his diploma work Parameter reduction in the system for

controlling large transportation nets.

The prize as well as the diplomas are awarded every year and

they are connected with a financial support.

The prize was established in 1994 by an outstanding Czech

mathematician Ivo Babuska. He was born in Prague and after

graduating from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech

Technical University in Prague he started his work in the

Mathematical Institute of the Academy of Sciences. He was

appointed professor in Prague in 1968 and since fall 1968 he has

been working in the United States. Since 1995 he works at the

Texas Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics,

University of Texas, Austin, TX.

His scientific work is focused on numerical and applied

mathematics and computational mechanics, and their use in

practice. His results in the finite element method belong to the

fundamentals of the method. He is the author of several

monographs and has initiated several famous scientific meetings

both in Europe and the United States. He established the journal

Applications of Mathematics (formerly Aplikace matematiky) in

1956.

Dear Colleague,

We would like to inform you about this 2nd International Workshop on

"Next generation climate models for advanced high performance

computing facilities".

New projects for advanced high-performance computing facilities are

indeed being conducted in Japan and US, such as the "Earth Simulator"

and "ASCI" initiatives.

Corresponding to these hardware development programs,

it is necessary to enhance an activity on the software development.

For this purpose, the first Workshop on "Next-generation

climate models for advanced high performance computing facilities"

was held at Honolulu in March 1999.

We have decided to hold the second Workshop on "Next-generation

climate models for advanced high performance computing facilities"

this coming February in Toulouse, in order to facilitate

the cooperation with European scientists.

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the following points:

(1) What is the next generation climate model suitable for these advanced

computing facilities?

(2) What kind of processes, schemes and /or models are necessary for the

next generation model?

(3) How to do in order to achieve these goals?

Any kind of comments and contributions are welcome.

We are looking forward with great pleasure to seeing you and

exchanging information on the next-generation models and computers.

**Subject: Postdoctoral Position at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie**

POST DOCTORAL POSITION IN PARIS

Our fluid interface modeling group seeks to hire a post-doctoral

researcher. Our group is involved in theoretical and numerical studies

of droplets and bubbles. We abundantly use numerical methods. Thus we

are interested in the development and use of schemes for the study of

interfaces between fluids and for free surface flow. We are using both

VOF/PLIC volumetric tracking and surface tracking, coupled to finite

volume/finite difference discretization of the bulk. These methods are

coupled with various multilevel and multigrid methods. We have access

to massively parallel computers but perform the day to day work on small

computers, typically PCs under linux. Typical problems are splashing

droplets, the atomization of jets in fuel injectors for car and rocket

engines, bubbles in turbulent flows, cavitating flows, breaking and

spilling ocean waves .

A good knowledge of numerical methods for fluid mechanics,

and of fluid mechanics in general, is essential.

All group members are fluent in English so knowledge of the French

language is not required.

The fellowship would be for a period of one year, with opportunities

for longer time positions. Salary is negotiable but would be around

10000 FF/month. The exchange rate is currently around 6 FF/dollar.

However this is a non-taxable fellowship, with inexpensive

health insurance (200 FF/month) and no income taxes. Some assistance

in finding housing may be available.

Applicants should send me an e-mail and request three letters of

recommendation to be sent to me directly at the address below.
