Subject: Anders Barrlund

Anders Barrlund

Our dear friend and colleague Anders Barrlund died on Monday,
July 24 in Umea, Sweden, only 38 years old.

Anders came as a young and talented student to the Department
of Computing Science in the beginning of the 80's. After his
Masters degree in 1985 he started his postgraduate education
in Numerical Analysis and finished his Licentiate Degree in
1988 and his PhD Degree in 1991. Since then, Anders has held
different positions at the Umea University. He was appointed
Docent and Universitetslektor (Associate Professor with tenure)
by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in 1996.

Anders has always shown a great enthusiasm for his work at
the Department, and he was of great inspiration for
both students and colleagues. Anders was very much appreciated
as a teacher, and he was also rewarded several prizes
for his pedagogical interests and achievements.

Anders has also given important scientific contributions in
Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, with publications
in, for example, BIT, Computational Statistics, J. of Computational
and Applied Mathematics, Linear Algebra and Its Applications,
Numerische Mathematik and SIAM J. on Matrix Analysis and Applications.

His PhD Thesis is entitled "Numerical Solution of Higher Index
Differential Algebraic Systems" (Steve Campbell, North Carolina
State Univ. was the external faculty opponent when Anders defended
his Thesis in 1991, Bo Kagstrom was his supervisor and examiner).
His succeeding publications give important contributions to theory,
algorithms and software for solving general differential-algebraic (DAE)
systems of equations. Most notably is his Constrained Least Squares (CLS)
methods which are applicable for solving higher index DAE systems.

Numerical linear algebra has been another of his main research areas.
His contributions include a series of important perturbation results
on the polar decomposition, the LDL^T and LU decompositions, and the
generalized QR factorization. Anders has also published new results
on the efficient solution of constrained least squares problems with
Kronecker product structure. Most recently, he published a paper
entitled "The p-relative distance is a metric" in SIMAX (21:2,2000).
His results are rich in creativity.

Anders also had the interest and the ability to quickly get into a
new subject, which also led to fruitful collaborations with
statisticians and mathematicians.

Since the end of 1998, Anders has suffered from a serious illness.
He recovered, and we were all very happy when he could join us
again in different activities. Anders leaves us with great sorrow, but
his memory will continue to inspire us and the work at the Department.

Subject: Looking for Block Tridiagonal Solvers

I'm looking for algorithms/code for solving unsymmetric block
tridiagonal systems of linear equations Ax=b efficiently on modern
desktop machines e.g., Pentium systems. In our problem the blocks are
all large, square, and equal sized. In addition, some blocks may be
repeated (without pattern) and in special cases we know the inverses of
all blocks. Typically block size is >10^2 and matrix A size is
>10000^2, so the problem is very sparse. Generalization to
pentadiagonal, heptadiagonal, etc systems would be a welcome feature.
An extensive search of netlib indicates that variants of this problem
have been tacked many times. Also welcome would be advice on what
simple strategies might be efficient (e.g., treat it as a band diagonal
system or as a simple tridiagonal system where each element is a

Subject: Special Issue on Matrix Computations and Statistics

Special Issue of Computational Statistics and Data Analysis

The interaction between matrix computations and statistics has had a
major impact on both fields. Historically, there is the relationship between
the Gauss-Markov linear model and least squares, and that between singular
values and principal components. In the last two decades, this interaction has been enhanced by the development of total least squares and
errors-in-variables problems, and the recent surge in interest in
latent semantic indexing.

For these reasons, the journal Computational Statistics and Data Analysis
will have a special issue on Matrix Computations and Statistics.
Submissions are welcome in the following areas: classical linear least squares,
total least squares, matrix computations for principal components and factor
analysis, matrix computations in genetics, regularization techniques,
clustering and classification, text and data mining applications, probabilistic
IR models, and hypertext models. We also welcome submissions that
do not fit into these areas if they use matrix computations for a statistical

Subject: Postdoctoral Position at University of Tuebingen, Germany

Postdoctoral Position available

INSTITUTION: Sonderforschungsgereich 382, Transferbereich
UNIVERSITY : Universitaet Tuebingen, Germany

As part of the new Transferbereich 3040 "Numerical simulation of induction
heating in car manufacturing" a full postdoctoral position will become available
at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, for the period October 1st, 2000
through September 30th, 2002.

The position is part of a joint project of DaimlerChrysler corporation, FEMpro
Ltd. and researchers of the SFB 382. The goal of the project is to employ
advanced techniques in the numerical solution of PDEs for the simulation of
induction heating processes that play a crucial role in car manufacturing.
Hierarchical modeling, coupling of finite elements and boundary elements, fast
summation methods and multilevel iterative solvers will be core techniques.
Issues of object oriented software design and pre- and postprocessing will also
be important.

Applicants should have a PhD in applied mathematics, computational physics or
theoretical electrical engineering. Programming skills in C or C++ are essential
and experience in dealing with large scientific codes is desirable. The position
does not involve any teaching or administrative duties. Fluency in *either*
English *or* German is required and the candidate should be able to work and
communicate within a team.

The candidate is expected to contribute to research and software development
within the framework of the project. Yet, as it tackles a challenging problem
and relies on cutting edge numerical methods, there will be plenty of
opportunity for scientific investigations related to finite elements, boundary
elements and fast solution methods. On the other hand, the project is geared to
a particular industrial application. Thus, an important aspect will be how to
tailor numerical methods to practical needs. In sum, the position offers both
insights into advanced numerical techniques and a chance to become familiar with
industrial applications.

The salary will be according to the BAT IIa (see
verwalt/dez4/abt_1/bat_text/bat.html), which roughly amounts to DM 5,500 per
month, before taxes. Social security and health care is fully covered and staff
is entitled to about five weeks of paid holidays per year. For more information
about the town of Tuebingen see, To get an impression about the university check out

Applications for this position should be filed as soon as possible (missing
documents can be submitted later, e-mail applications are encouraged). They
should include graduation reports, a curriculum vita, a brief outline of recent
scientific activities, and an account of experience in software development.

Interval computation (or, more generally, guaranteed computation) is not
yet a part of the tools available to most researchers and engineers in
control and signal processing. On the other hand, control and signal
processing are not yet duly recognized as fruitful fields for applications
by most of the researchers working on interval computation. On a more
theoretical level, each group can benefit from importing the concepts,
techniques, and open problems from the other. The aim of this Special
