Subject: Thanks to Ernst Hairer and All the People of Geneva

Thanks to Ernst Hairer and all the people of Geneva

About two months ago, the conference ``Scientific Computation'' took place
in Geneva to celebrate Gerhard Wanner's 60th birthday. I will
not describe the talks; the abstracts may be found at the internet address

(Several other people attended and paid tribute to Gerhard without giving
a talk, see the list of participants on the above page.)

What I would like to stress here is the perfect way Ernst and all the people
of the "Institut de Mathematiques de l'Universite de Geneve" have managed the

There were a book of abstracts with list of participants, coffee breaks,
a boat trip, an excursion (a fantastic day in Chamonix) and a conference
dinner, The attendees of East-european and Asian countries were reimbursed.

How was this possible? First, there were sponsors, whose list may be
found under the above www-page (all of them academic, no Geneva bank...).
Second, there was an enormous work by Ernst, the organisers' spouses and the
employees of the Institute, who run the coffee breaks, the drinks and
the dessert of the dinner in the countryside of Geneva.
They deserve the warmest thanks of all the attendees !

Sure, one cannot expect such an engagement from all conference organisers.
But there is plenty of margin between no fee or a symbolic fee and the
several hundred euros we must pay to attend (too) many meetings.
Thank you all in Geneva, also for demonstrating that a perfect conference
can be organized without cashing such astronomical fees !

(It should be noted that another conference held in Switzerland this year,
"Latsis 2002, Iterative Solvers for Large Linear Systems", which celebrated
in Zurich 50 years of the conjugate gradient method, had a registration fee of
just 40 swiss francs (about 25 euros = 25 dollars), --- for more info,
see or the sites mentioned in SIAM News, June 2002.)

Subject: New Book, Scientific Computing with Ordinary Differential Equations

Springer-Verlag NY is pleased to announce the publication of Scientific
Computing with Ordinary Differential Equations from Peter Deuflhard of
the Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum Berlin and Folkmar Bornemann of the Munich
University of Technology (TUM) in our Texts in Applied Mathematics Series.

This text provides an introduction to the numerical solution of initial
and boundary value problems in ordinary differential equations on a firm
theoretical basis. The book strictly presents numerical analysis as part
of the more general field of scientific computing. Important algorithmic
concepts are explained down to questions of software implementation. For
initial value problems a dynamical systems approach is used to develop
Runge-Kutta, extrapolation, and multistep methods. For boundary value
problems including optimal control problems both multiple shooting and
collocation methods are worked out in detail. Graduate students and
researchers in mathematics, computer science, and engineering will find
this book useful. Chapter summaries, detailed illustrations, and
exercises are contained throughout the book with many interesting
applications taken from a rich variety of areas.

Subject: New Book, Finite Volume Methods for Hyperbolic Problems

New Book, Finite Volume Methods for Hyperbolic Problems

I am pleased to announce that the following book is now available:

Finite Volume Methods for Hyperbolic Problems
by Randall J. LeVeque (University of Washington),
Cambridge University Press, 2002. xix, 558 pp., 135 figures, 108 exercises
Hardback: ISBN 0-521-81087-6, $120 retail
Paperback: ISBN 0-521-00924-3, $45 retail

This book is based on my ETH Notes "Numerical Methods for Conservation Laws"
published by Birkhauser in 1990, but has been completely reorganized and
greatly expanded. All of the sample computations in the book were computed
using CLAWPACK, and the webpage
contains pointers to numerous animations that supplement figures in the book,
and to all the source code used to perform the computations.

For more details, including the table of contents and first chapter,

Subject: CLAWPACK, Software for Conservation Laws

CLAWPACK Version 4.1 is now available

A new version of the CLAWPACK software has recently been installed at
This free "conservation laws package" includes fortran routines to
solve hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations (not just
conservation laws) in 1, 2, and 3 space dimensions. Version 4.1
differs from the previous Version 4.0 most significantly in the
3-dimensional routines, where some calling sequences have been changed.

The User's Guide has also been extensively rewritten and expanded; see

An adaptive mesh refinement version has been added in 3D,
extending AMRCLAW from 2D to 3D. This portion of CLAWPACK is
based on codes originally developed by Marsha Berger.

CLAWPACK also contains MPI versions, matlab routines for graphics and
visualization, and a number of sample application directories that serve as
templates for applying the software to other problems. Examples include
advection, acoustics equations (in homogeneous and heterogeneous media),
gas dynamics, elasticity, shallow water equations, and traffic flow.

Subject: NUFFT, Non-uniform FFT MATLAB Toolbox

Dear colleagues,

Daniel Potts recently announced his C library for nonuniform FFT which
is located here:

For those who would prefer to experiment with such tools in Matlab,
we have independently developed a NUFFT toolbox that uses interpolators
that have been min-max optimized to minimize the worst-case interpolation
error. The toolbox is one part of a large collection of m-files developed
for image reconstruction problems, and is located here:

Attention: Ms. Carrie Eder

The ASCI/Alliances Center for Astrophysical Thermonuclear Flashes at the
University of Chicago invites applications for a research position
in computational physics. The center's purpose is to develop and apply
a general-purpose multi-physics adaptive mesh refinement code, FLASH.
The primary applications of the FLASH code are simulations of astrophysical
thermonuclear explosions.

The successful applicant will develop physics models needed for these
simulations, design and implement appropriate numerical algorithms and
validate the models against experimental results. Experience in
computational physics and parallel computing are required. Interest
in astrophysical applications, implicit solution techniques, and
fluid dynamics or radiation transport are highly desired.

The position is for a period of two years with the possibility of renewal.
To apply, please submit to the above address a curriculum vitae, a list
of publications, a brief description of research interests and the names
and contact information for three references. Applications received
prior to 1 December 2002 will receive first consideration. AAE/EOE.

Subject: Postdoctoral Position at Institut Francais du Petrole

Domain decomposition methods for multiphase flow in porous media

Domain decomposition methods are used for complex models of
multiphase flow in porous media (sedimentary basin cut by faults
along which displacements can occur, petroleum reservoir with a fine
description of the well bore). The computational domain is then
decomposed into subdomains in which the partial differential
equations are solved locally, continuity between subdomains being
imposed iteratively.

The set of partial differential equations considered is a mixed
hyperbolic - parabolic system and is discretized by a fully implicit
time scheme. The objective of the post-doctoral work is to improve
interface conditions for the domain decomposition method implemented
at IFP for the system of partial differential equations:
study from a theoretical point of view the existing interface conditions
propose and implement new interface conditions between subdomains
in order to achieve higher convergence rates.

The successful candidate will be located at IFP in Rueil Malmaison,
a pleasant suburb 10 miles from Paris Notre Dame. The activity of the
Institut Francais du Petrole is threefold : research and development,
education and training, and information. It is designed to serve the
oil, gas and automotive industries. It is unique in Europe and covers
all the sectors from exploration and production, refining and
petrochemicals, to the end use of petroleum products in the internal
combustion engine.

The salary will be of 2200 euros/month. The duration is 12-18 months.

This is a joint work between IFP and the Centre de Mathematiques
Appliquees de l'Ecole
Polytechnique located in Palaiseau.
