We are glad to announce the publication of a new book

J.A.K. Suykens, T. Van Gestel, J. De Brabanter, B. De Moor, J. Vandewalle,

Least Squares Support Vector Machines,

World Scientific Pub. Co., Singapore, 2002

http://www.esat.kuleuven.ac.be/sista/lssvmlab/book.html

This book focuses on Least Squares Support Vector Machines (LS-SVMs)

which are reformulations to standard SVMs. LS-SVMs are closely related

to regularization networks and Gaussian processes but additionally

emphasize and exploit primal-dual interpretations from optimization theory.

The authors explain the natural links between LS-SVM classifiers and kernel

Fisher discriminant analysis. Bayesian inference of LS-SVM models is

discussed, together with methods for imposing sparseness and employing

robust statistics.

The framework is further extended towards unsupervised learning by

considering PCA analysis and its kernel version as a one-class modelling

problem. This leads to new primal-dual support vector machine formulations

for kernel PCA and kernel CCA analysis. Furthermore, LS-SVM formulations

are given for recurrent networks and control. In general, support vector

machines may pose heavy computational challenges for large data sets.

For this purpose, a method of fixed size LS-SVM is proposed where the

estimation is done in the primal space in relation to a Nystr

Dear Colleagues;

I am pleased to announce the publication of

our new book. The details are

Difference Schemes with Operator Factors

Samarskii A.A., Matus, P.P., and Vabishchevich, P.N.,

Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston/Dordrecht/London 2002

ISBN 1-4020-0856-2

A new class of difference schemes with operator factors that includes

the schemes with variable weighting factors is picked out in the monograph.

The theory of stability is developed for such two- and three-level difference

schemes with non-selfadjoint operators. On the basis of general results

obtained, the stability and convergence investigation of various initial

boundary-value problems for equations with partial derivatives was realized.

Adaptive difference schemes with time and spatial thickening are constructed.

A theoretical analysis of domain-additive difference schemes (domain

decomposition schemes) that are oriented on the construction of effective

computational algorithms for parallel computer systems is realized. The book

is intended for specialists in numerical methods of solution of mathematical

physics problems; the exposition is easily understood by senior students

of universities.

Second Announcement

Special Issue of Linear Algebra and Its Applications

ACCURATE SOLUTION OF EIGENVALUE PROBLEMS III

In the last several years, there have been a number of advances in the

accurate solution of eigenvalue problems. Many of the results have come from

the realization that eigenvalue algorithms that exploit the structure of the

problem can lead to more accurate eigenvalue and eigenvector computations.

To recognize these advances and to encourage further advances, we are

proposing to have a third special issue of Linear Algebra and Its Applications

on Accurate Solution of Eigenvalue Problems. This is the third such special

issue. The first was volume 309 of Linear Algebra and Its Applications,

published in early 2000, the second was volume 358 which just appeared in

late 2002.

This special issue is in coordination with the International Workshop on

Accurate Solution of Eigenvalue Problems IV held in Split, Croatia on June

24-27, 2002. The participants in the workshop will be strongly encouraged to

submit papers to the special issue. Submissions are also encouraged from

non-participants as long as they are consistent with the themes of the

workshop.

Scope of the conference: There is a clear trend in modelling and

simulation technology away from rigid simulation codes treating a fixed

aspect towards sophisticated problem-solving environments (PSEs). These

environments are widely considered an essential, emerging technology

with high impact across all fields of science and engineering. PSEs will

be especially important to successfully address all kinds of

multidisciplinary phenomena such as fluid-structure coupling and rapidly

developing fields such as bio-informatics and other application fields

where vast amounts of data need to be managed and processed to discover

patterns and knowledge contained within it. By integrating the latest

research results into easy-to-use environments and utilizing grid

computing infrastructure, PSEs will also help to make them easier to

exploit for larger user communities. The conference program addresses

the state-of-the-art in infrastructure, standards, and core technologies

(i.e. data mining, intelligence, virtual interfaces, grid computing) for

PSEs and reviews PSE developments in health, bio-informatics,

engineering, marketing and finance, environment, and education and training.

**Subject: Winter School in Vienna on Foundations of Computational Sciences**

Vienna Winter School on the Mathematical Foundations

of Computational Sciences

January 26 till February 8, 2003

at Vienna University of Technology, Austria,

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.

Amongst the invited lecturers are

Carsten Carstensen (Vienna University of Technology, Austria)

Simon Shaw (Brunel University, UK)

John R. Whiteman (Brunel University, UK)

Willy D=F6rfler (University of Karlsruhe, Germany)

Stefan A. Funken (FEMLAB, Germany)

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT, IWOTA 2003

Dear Colleague,

The next international workshop on Operator Theory and Applications

(IWOTA) will be organized at the University of Cagliari, Sardinia, from

Tuesday, June 24 to Friday, June 27, 2003. Please note that the meeting

is organized in an "odd number" year, there will be NO MTNS

(Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems) to accompany it as a

conference held on the same continent in the week before or after. The

conference will be held on the premises of the University of Cagliari,

close to the city center.

This IWOTA meeting will be the fourteenth in a series of highly

succesful IWOTA meetings. The previous IWOTA meetings were held in Santa

**Subject: Workshop at IPAM on Multiscale Geometric Analysis**

Workshop on "Multiscale Geometric Analysis: Theory, Tools, and Applications"

IPAM is pleased to announce a workshop on "Multiscale Geometric

Analysis: Theory, Tools, and Applications" which will run from January

13-17, 2003. The program will take place at the IPAM building on the

campus of UCLA in Los Angeles. The program is organized by Emmanuel

Candes (Caltech, Applied Math), David Donoho (Stanford, Statistics),

Peter Jones (Yale, Math), and Jean-Luc Starck (Saclay, Astronomy). =20

In the past decade, a number of independent developments in mathematical

analysis, in computer vision, in pattern recognition, and in statistical

analysis have independently developed tools and theories which can now

be seen to be closely related, as parts of an emerging area which should

be called Multiscale Geometric Analysis. The purpose of this meeting is

to crystallize this emerging field and to stimulate cross-disciplinary

exchanges which will accelerate its formation and development.

Some funding is available for graduate students and post-docs and young

academics. Full information about the workshop, including speaker list,

**Subject: Workshop in Melbourne on Scalable Iterative Methods**

Call for Papers

Workshop on Scalable Iterative Methods

held in conjunction with

ICCS 2003, Melbourne, Australia

http://www.science.uva.nl/events/ICCS2003/

Workshop Web Site

http://www.mcs.anl.gov/~gropp/events/wscim02/

Iterative methods for the solution of linear and nonlinear systems of

equations are commonly used in large scientific computations because of

their relative efficiency for problems of large size. These methods have

been very successful, but as both the depth of the memory hierarchies

within each compute node and the total number of compute nodes increases,

it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain high levels of overall

performance. This workshop seeks to bring together researchers and

practitioners in parallel iterative methods to share recent results and

ideas. Topics of interest include:

o Achieving high scalability, including

+ Algorithms for avoiding or deferring synchronization

+ Preconditioners with limited communication

+ Effective multilevel methods

+ Fault detection and tolerance at massive scale

o Performance on parallel nodes, including

+ Effective use of the memory hierarchy

+ Effective use of instructions, including vectors, SIMD, and Explicitly

Parallel Instruction Computing (EPIC)

o Interaction with applications and/or libraries, including

+ Application-specific preconditioners

+ Non-traditional iterative methods

+ Using application data structures and representations

**Subject: Workshop in Melbourne on Adaptive Algorithms**

A Workshop on Adaptive Algorithms for Parallel and Distributed Computing

Environemnts will be held in conjunction with The International Conference

on Computational Science 2003 (ICCS 2003) on the 2nd-4th June 2003 in

Melbourne, Australia. The workshop co-chairs are Shirley Moore and

Victor Eijkhout.

Scope and Call For Papers

Adaptive algorithms encapsulate a number of algorithms for solution of the

same problem, along with mechanisms for selecting the best algorithm from

amongst the available alternatives. Most current adaptive algorithms

operate within homogeneous parallel computing environments. Distributed

computing raises additional problems of heterogeneous platforms, reduced

reliability and control, and less predictable network bandwidth. Code

generators for adaptive algorithms may use off-line optimization, run-time

optimization, hybrid off-line/run-time optimization, and/or

feedback-directed compilation. This workshop will explore techniques for

designing and implementing adaptive numerical algorithms in parallel and

distributed computing environments, as well as the performance

measurement, modeling, and data collection methodologies needed to support

such adaptation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Architecture-dependent tuning of numerical kernels

Dynamic adaptation in distributed environments

Performance models for adaptive algorithms

Performance prediction

Just-in-time compilation of numerical code

Feedback-directed compilation of numerical code

Languages for expressing adaptive algorithms

Statistical techniques for adaptive algorithms

Experimental results with adaptive algorithms

Submission Details

Papers in this area of up to 10 pages (A4 paper) are sought for oral

presentation. Submitted papers must be original, containing results and

material not published previously. The submitted paper must be formatted

according to the rules of LNCS. See

http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for formatting information.

All papers selected for this Workshop will be peer-reviewed and published

in ICCS conference proceedings. The proceedings of the Conference will be

published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)

series. A PDF version of your paper should be submitted by email to

shirley@cs.utk.edu and eijkhout@cs.utk.edu.
