Call for Entries and Volunteers:

Association for Women in Mathematics 2002 Essay Contest on

Biographies of Contemporary Women in Mathematics

To increase awareness of women's ongoing contributions to the

mathematical sciences, the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM),

with sponsorship from Sandia National Labs, is pleased to announce the

2002 essay contest for biographies of contemporary women mathematicians

and statisticians in academic, industrial, and government careers.

The contest is open to students in the following categories:

6th - 8th Graders, 9th - 12th Graders, College, and Graduate Students.

At least one winning entry will be chosen from each category. Winners

will receive a prize, and their essays will be published online at the

AWM web site. A grand prize winner will have his or her entry published

in the AWM Newsletter as well. The deadline for entries is November 1, 2002.

We are currently seeking women in mathematical careers to volunteer as

the subjects of these essays.

For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, go to

http://www.awm-math.org/biographies/contest.html

or contact Dr. Victoria Howle, the contest organizer, by email at

vehowle@sandia.gov.

Thank you,

**Subject: GeoFEM, Parallel FEM Platform**

Dear Colleagues,

RIST (Research Organization for Information Science & Technology,

Japan) has released the GeoFEM ver.5.0, a parallel finite element platform.

GeoFEM is delveloped as the part of the Japanese national project,

"Parallel Platform for Large Scale Solid Earth Simulation" funded by

"Special Promoting Funds of Science & Technology" of the Ministry of

Education, Science and Technology, Japan which has been conducted since 1998.

GeoFEM includes parallel finite element codes for linear/nonlinear solid

mechanics and thermal fluid simulations, parallel iterative linear solver

library, partitioning subsystem, parallel visualization subsystem and

utilities for parallel I/O and coupling of multiple codes. GeoFEM is

originally developed for solid earth simulation but applicable for various

types of engineering and science applications. Users also plug-in their own

FEM codes to GeoFEM platform and can develop parallel FEM code easily.

GeoFEM is written in Fortran 90 and MPI (part of visualization/utility

subsystems in C and C++) and can work on various types of platforms from

LINUX clusters to massively parallel computers.

Researchers and engineers interested in GeoFEM can get information at

the following website :

http://geofem.tokyo.rist.or.jp/

Source files of the entire codes, example input/output files and

documents can be downloaded from:

http://geofem.tokyo.rist.or.jp/download_en/

New features in ver.5.0 are as follows :

1. Intel Fortran Compiler (32bit) on Linux is now supported through special

patches.

2. Newly developed "Parallel Surface/Volume Rendering (PSR/PVR)" modules for

visualization are available in "visualization" subsystem.

3. 2nd order hexaheron (332) and 1st & 2nd order tetrahedron (311 & 312) are

available in "static-linear" subsytem for 3D linear-elastic solid analysis.

4. Some bugs are fixed.

More detailed update information can be found at

Computational Statistics and Data Analysis

Special Issue on APPLICATIONS OF OPTIMIZATION HEURISTICS

TO ESTIMATION AND MODELLING PROBLEMS

Guest Editors: Manfred Gilli and Peter Winker

Estimation and modelling problems as they arise in many fields often

turn out to be intractable by standard numerical methods. One way to

deal with such a situation consists in simplifying models and procedures.

However, the solutions to these simplified problems might not be

satisfying. A different approach consists in applying optimization

heuristics such as evolutionary algorithms (Simulated Annealing,

Threshold Accepting), neural networks, genetic algorithms, tabu search,

hybrid methods and many others, which have been developed over the last

two decades. Although the use of these methods became more standard in

several fields of sciences, their use in estimation and modelling

in statistics appears to be still limited.

We therefore invite submissions for a special issue of Computational

Statistics & Data Analysis on Applications of Optimization Heuristics

to estimation and modelling problems. We will consider papers

addressing estimation and modelling problems by making use of optimization

heuristics. Besides a discussion of the algorithm, the paper should

contribute some real application. Also welcome are discussions of the

computational complexity of estimation and modelling problems giving

rise to the use of optimization heuristics.

The DEADLINE for submissions is December 31, 2002.

The focus of the papers submitted to the special issue must contain

both computational and estimation or modelling components. Authors who are

uncertain as to the suitability of their papers for the special issue

should contact the special issue editors. All papers submitted must

contain original unpublished work that is not being submitted for

publication elsewhere. Manuscripts submitted to this special issue

will be refereed according to standard procedures for Computational

Science and Data Analysis. Information about the journal can be found

at http://www.elsevier.com/locate/csda

Electronic submission is encouraged. Please e-mail a postscript

Announcement of Vienna Winter School 01/2003

Vienna Winter School on the Mathematical Foundations

of Computational Sciences

January 26 till February 8, 2003

at Vienna University of Technology, Austria,

Intention

Almost all kind of engineering applications involve

numerical simulations to guarantee their quality,

durability or safety. Behind the most frequently

employed software packages lies a discretization of

a PDE, often a finite element method. In all those

cases, there exist a discretization error which can

be small or large, of minor or dominating significance.

It is the aim of the Vienna Winter School on the

Mathematical Foundations of Computational Sciences to

provide a direct introduction to reliable and efficient

computation and error control in numerical simulations.

The topics range from elementary functional analysis

(in the first week) to advanced adaptive finite element

techniques and applications (in the second week).

Students of Engineering and Natural Sciences with basic mathematical

background are welcome if interested in guaranteed convergence of

their FE schemes.

Details on a (moderate) fee will be fixed a.s.a.p. Please do not

hesitate to contact us for any assistance on your travel

arrangements or accommodation reservations in Vienna. The web site

http://gamm.tuwien.ac.at/winterschool2003/

**Subject: Workshop in Bari on ODEs**

December 18-20, we will organize a three-day, international

numerical analysis workshop entitled

"International Workshop on the Technological Aspects of Mathematics -

Advances in computing and software development for Differential Equations"

SCOPE AND INTERESTS:

The need for efficiently solve Differential Equations arising from

different application areas has being playing an important role in

determining the research and development activities in many academic

and industrial branches.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together numerical analysts

applied mathematicians and researchers to

present, discuss and exchange ideas about the numerical solution of

differential problems.

This will be useful to collect ideas for updating, according to

the current requirements in real-life applications,

the TEST SET for IVP solvers (http://www.dm.uniba.it/~testset).

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE TEST SET:

It consists of a standard test set for Initial Value Problems (IVPs)

which includes documentation of the test problems, experimental results

from a number of proven solvers, and subroutines providing a common

interface to the defining problem functions.

Both engineers and computational scientists alike will benefit greatly

from having such a reference.

Engineers will be able to see at a glance which methods will

be most effective for their class of problems. Researchers will be able

to compare their new methods with the results of existing ones without

incurring additional programming workload; they will have a reference

with which their colleagues are familiar. This test set tries to fulfill

these demands and tries to set a standard for IVP solver testing.

For further details, the complete description and the structure of

the Test Set, please visit the url: http://www.dm.uniba.it/~testset

Among the main topics are:

Ordinary Differential Equations,

Differential Algebraic Equations,

Delay Differential Equations,

Boundary Value Problems,

Partial Differential Equations.
