LINEAR ALGEBRA AND ITS APPLICATIONS

Special Issue in honor of Heydar Radjavi

Linear Algebra and its Applications is pleased to announce a

special issue in honor of Professor Heydar Radjavi, in recognition of his

many important contributions to linear algebra and to operator theory,

and in celebration of his 70th birthday on January 17, 2005.

Heydar's early results include his seminal characterization of

self-commutators of operators on Hilbert space. His definitive trace

condition for simultaneous triangularizability of semigroups of matrices

was the culmination of work on this topic by several generations of

distinguished algebraists. Heydar has obtained numerous other results of

broad interest on invariant subspaces, simultaneous triangularizability,

products of involutions, semigroups of matrices and many other topics. As

he approaches 70, his research productivity is increasing with his age.

It is hoped that this special issue will reflect the breadth and

influence of his research.

Papers on any aspect of linear algebra or operator theory may be

submitted to any of the four special editors listed below before July 31,

2003. Submissions will be subject to the normal refereeing procedures and

standards of LAA.

Aims and Scope

Computational Management Science (CMS) is an international journal

focusing on all computational aspects of management science. As such, it

provides a publishing outlet for novel research results, and occasional

surveys, in computational methods, models and empirical analysis for

decision making in management, engineering, economics and finance. These

include theoretical and empirical analysis of computational models;

computational statistics; analysis and applications of constrained and

unconstrained optimisation algorithms; dynamic models, such as dynamic

programming and decision trees; new search tools and algorithms for global

optimisation, modelling, learning and forecasting such as neural networks

and genetic algorithms; models and tools of knowledge acquisition, such as

data mining and data warehousing.

CMS covers applications and models, as well as algorithms. It has a wide

scope, intending to provide a unified forum for research often scattered

in specialised areas. The aim is to aid researchers, as well as authors of

papers, spanning algorithms and applications. CMS welcomes development and

analysis of applicable algorithms, computational models and experience,

and balanced sets of applications. It is always open to new computational

paradigms.

Refereeing

The refereeing process of the journal is based on the widely accepted

rigorous standards of scientific publications and is intended to be fast.

The journal will appear four times a year. For further information

please see http://ce.buro.tue.nl/cms/cms-flyer.pdf

**Subject: Workshop at UCLA IPAM on Alternative Computing**

Workshop on "Alternative Computing" :

http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/programs/nanoalt/

As part of its semester program on Mathematics in Nanoscale Science and

Engineering, The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is

pleased to announce a workshop on "Alternative Computing" which will run

from September 30 - October 3, 2002. The program will take place at the

IPAM building on the campus of UCLA in Los Angeles. The program is

organized by Russel Caflisch, Chair (UCLA) James Heath (UCLA), and

Vwani P. Roychowdhury (UCLA).

Scientific Content: The limits of Moore's law are clearly on the

horizon, and there are a number of current proposals for future

computing models, each of which would represent a major breakthrough.

These include quantum computing, biological computing, molecular

computing, and neural nets. Each of these has some very promising

features in terms of speed, complexity and efficiency, but there remain

a number of unresolved issues involving input/output, fault tolerance

and algorithm development that are required in order to implement these

models. This workshop will bring together experts representing a wide

range of scientific viewpoints on alternative computing models. The aim

of the workshop is to promote research on alternative computing, to

stimulate interactions among individuals working on different approaches

to alternative computing, and to help bring the open problems in this

field to the attention of mathematicians and nanosystem researchers.

Speakers:

Supriyo Bandyopadhyay (Virginia Commonwealth Univ)

**Subject: Conference at WIAS on Challenges in Scientific Computing**

Dear Colleagues,

On Oct. 2-5, 2002, at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis

and Stochastic, Berlin, Germany, a conference on

"Challenges in Scientfic Computing"

will take place.

The main focus of the conference is on the problem class of nonlinear

transport/diffusion/reaction systems, chief amongst these being: the

Navier-Stokes equations, porous media-flow problems and

semiconductor-device equations.

Of particular interest are those contributions which emphasise

unsolved problems, challenging open questions from applications and

assessing the various numerical methods used to handle them, instead

of concentrating on accurate results from `solved' problems.

An important goal of the conference is to examine, to discuss, and to

raise the overall awareness of a broad range of topical issues

stemming from the fields of scientific computing and numerical

analysis. These include:

* handling of multispecies/multiphysics systems

* discretisation methods

* treatment of nonlinearity

* mesh generation and adaptivity

* fast, direct and iterative solvers for linear algebraic problems

* design of numerically efficient, but flexible, software components

* portable parallelisation

For comprehensive information, we kindly invite you to look up the

conference homepage at
