Subject: New Book, Least Squares Support Vector Machines

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

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

Subject: New Book, Difference Schemes with Operator Factors

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.

Subject: Special Issue of LAA on Accurate Solution of Eigenvalue Problems

Second Announcement
Special Issue of Linear Algebra and Its Applications

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

Subject: Special Issue of Parallel Computing Journal

Call For Papers:

Parallel Computing Journal
Special issue on Parallel and Distributed Scientific and Engineering Computing

Scope and Interests:

Parallel and distributed processing is one of the most exciting
technologies to achieve prominence, whose development has been
facilitated by the rapid advances in electronic and integrated circuit
technologies, since the invention of computers in the 1940s. It is
expected that the years to come will witness a proliferation of the use
of parallel and distributed systems, or supercomputers.

Based on the above fact, parallel and distributed scientific and
engineering computing has become a key technology which will play an
important part in determining, or at least shaping, future research and
development activities in many academic and industrial branches. The
application areas are to be understood very broadly and include, but are
not limited to: computational fluid dynamics and mechanics, material
sciences space, weather, climate systems and global changes,
computational environment and energy systems computational ocean and
earth sciences, combustion system simulation computational chemistry,
computational physics bioinformatics and computational biology, medical

S. Weerawarana (IBM, US).

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.

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)

Subject: Workshop in Sardinia on Operator Theory


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
Monica (1981), Rehovot (1983), Amsterdam (1985), Mesa AZ (1987),
Rotterdam (1989), Sapporo (1991), Vienna (1993), Regensburg (1995),
Bloomington (1995), Groningen (1998), Bordeaux (2000), Faro (2000), and
Blacksburg (2002). The organizers of the present meeting hope to be able
to adhere to the high standards of the previous meetings.

The purpose of IWOTA 2003 is to bring together mathematicians and
engineers interested in operator theory and applications. Adhering to a
tradition started at the Faro and Blacksburg meetings, the meeting will
be focussed on a few special themes, without losing sight of the general
IWOTA mission. Our special interest areas, suggested by research
existing at the University of Cagliari and at other Italian
universities, are

* structured matrices,
* inverse scattering,
* control theory.

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,
and online registration form is available at the following website:

Subject: Workshop in Melbourne on Scalable Iterative Methods

Call for Papers
Workshop on Scalable Iterative Methods
held in conjunction with
ICCS 2003, Melbourne, Australia

Workshop Web Site

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 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 and
