Subject: Need for a faster exponential function approximation
I have a big application code where a none negligible amount of time
is spent in calculating exponentials. I am looking for faster ways to
evaluate exponentials. What I really need is the values of exp(-x) for
(x is always positive, and exp(-x) < 10^(-8) is considered negligible).
Is there any known approximating function that can be evaluated faster
the built-in general exponential function ? Polynomial or rational
function, or tabulation or ....
Your help will be very much appreciated.

Subject: New Book/Software for Computational Rheology
for Pipeline and Annular Flow
Wilson C. Chin, Ph.D., M.I.T.
Butterworth-Heinemann, Reed Elsevier PLC
A readable text applying modern finite difference methods to general
rheologies on "boundary-conforming, curvilinear" meshes, for ideal and
irregular duct and annular domains.
Mathematically rigorous, but also practical. Emphasizing debris
in clogged pipes and annuli, nonaxisymmetric wax bed buildup in subsea
flowlines, flows past large hydrate plugs, modern flow assurance
applications, plus experimental data.
Additional topics, concentric rotating annular flow, density
recirculating vortex flow, pipes with bends, algorithms for unsteady
and solid interaction in bed buildup and erosion, cuttings transport in
deviated and horizontal wells.
More than "just a book," all algorithms are available in
Windows-based software, allowing complete simulations in just seconds,
set-up to graphical display. Color snapshots of velocity, apparent
viscosity, shear rate, and viscous stress fields. Pictures you can
and edit with your mouse, and easily paste into documents.
Supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, the new
seamlessly combine fast mapping techniques and rapidly convergent
schemes with integrated color graphics and audio output to deliver a
numerical support that's unique and innovative.
Computational Rheology is all about solving real-world problems and
getting results. Already used by Fortune 100 companies, our powerful
"General Rheology Simulator" brings numerics to life! Compute "static"
solutions if you'd like ...
But with our flexible gridding technology, you can create effective
lapse" simulations with moving boundaries. For example, the top
diagram depicts a highly eccentric annulus, with rapid speeds near the
center. But sand fills the flow domain from below.
The remaining figures show clogging in progress. You also can color
properties like shear rate, viscous stress, apparent viscosity, speed
viscosity, plus dissipation function. An incredible capability!

About the winter schools
"Winter schools in computational mathematics" is a four-year project
(2001-2004) funded by the Research Council of Norway. The winter
be held annually and last one week. The schools are aimed at graduate
students and researchers at universities, research institutes and
industry. Advanced undergraduate students are also welcome. The number
participants is limited.
The winter schools are held at Norwegian ski resorts and there will be
time in the program for skiing and for other social activities in the
evenings. The winter schools should therefore provide a perfect arena
making new contacts with other researchers.

these are 890 NOK for single rooms and 850 NOK for double rooms, all
included. The rooms are paid directly to the hotel.
Undergraduate students may apply for a (limited) partial support.
About Geilo and Dr. Holms Hotel
Geilo is renowned as one of the best winter sports resorts in Northern
located in the mountains between Oslo and Bergen (approximately 4 hours
train from each city).
Geilo lies at an altitude of 800 meters with its highest alpine slope
at 1178 meters above sea level. This ensures good snow conditions
throughout the winter. Geilo offers 35 varied and well groomed downhill
and 18 lifts with a capacity of 22000 persons pr. hour. Moreover, there
are excellent possibilities for cross country, with approximately 500 km
trails, both in the valley and in the mountains.
For more information, take a look at:
Dr. Holms Hotel is a distinguished hotel, with traditions back to 1909,
located almost on top of the ski slopes.

An accessible and practical introduction to wavelets.
With applications in image processing, audio
storation, seismology, and elsewhere, wavelets have
been the subject of growing excitement and interest
over the past several years. Unfortunately, most books
on wavelets are accessible primarily to research
mathematicians. Discovering Wavelets presents basic
and advanced concepts of wavelets in a way that is
accessible to anyone with only a fundamental knowledge
of linear algebra. The basic concepts of wavelet
theory are introduced in the context of an explanation
of how the FBI uses wavelets to compress fingerprint
images. Wavelet theory is further developed in the
setting of function spaces. The book then moves on to
present more advanced topics such as filters,
multiresolution analysis, Daubechies

A brief description of the project:
Global Optimization Approaches to Protein Structure
The protein structure prediction problem is to determine the
three-dimensional arrangement of the protein molecule, given a
protein-solvent potential or free energy surface in accord with the
amino acid sequence. This energy surface is difficult to model reliably
in a global sense, i.e. to ensure that all misfolds are higher in energy
than the correctly folded conformation, and the =93rugged landscape=94
topography of this surface defines the underlying difficulty in finding
the native structure minimum. We have developed a mathematical
optimization approach that makes good predictions of certain aspects of
protein structure, and then manifest the prediction as constraints to
use within both a local optimization algorithm and as guidance within
various global optimization frameworks. The =93implicit=94 hydration
potentials between amino acids in solution derived from
experiment/simulation have been used to define new energy functions for
structure prediction. We would also like to initiate the combined use of
our optimization approach with protein fold recognition algorithms to
refine low-resolution fold predictions to higher level structural
predictions as a means of structurally and functionally annotating whole
genomes. These problems are computationally intensive, and require
effective parallelization implementations to be tractable.
