**Subject: A Historical Question**

1) In the early 70's letters from IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in

Yorktown Heights had in the letter head

2^19937 - 1 is a prime !

2) Some years later letters from the University of Illinois at Champaign-

Urbana had in their postage stamp

Four colors suffice !

Question: Does anybody has an original of one of these? I would like to use a

Xerox/photo of the original in some survey paper. Does anybody know of similar

other ads (and could provide a photo of some original)?

Thanks a lot

**Subject: UMFPACK v4.1 and AMD v1.0**

I would like to announce the availability of UMFPACK v4.1, a package for

sparse LU factorization. It includes an interface to AMD v1.0. It is much

faster than v4.0 (which appears as x=A\b in MATLAB 6.5), particularly for

unsymmetric matrices with symmetric nonzero pattern. It is written in C,

and includes a MATLAB and Fortran interface. It can handle real or

complex matrices.

AMD v1.0 is also available as a stand-alone package, for ordering sparse

matrices prior to Cholesky factorization (or LU factorization with diagonal

pivoting). It has versions in both C and Fortran, with a MATLAB interface.

In MATLAB, p = amd (A) is much faster than p = symamd (A). AMD is co-authored

with Patrick Amestoy and Iain Duff.

**Subject: JMP, Sparse Matrix Library for Java**

JMP is a freely available sparse matrix library for Java. It features

different sparse formats (dynamic and static), thread-safe matrix

assembly, and multi-threaded matrix/vector operations. Operating on these

matrices is a suite of Krylov methods and preconditioners (from the

Templates book), dense matrix decompositions such as LU, QR, SVD (from the

Jama project), and some simple eigenvalue/eigenvector solvers.

It is available at

http://www.math.uib.no/~bjornoh/jmp

Both sources and classfiles are available. A preliminary users guide,

reference documentation and some simple examples are also there.

New book on Krylov subspace methods

I am proud to announce that my book "Iterative Krylov Methods for

Large Linear Systems" seems to have appeared with Cambridge Press

(April 15, 2003, ISBN 0521818281. In this book I have tried to share

my insights in how algorithms for iterative methods can be developed

and how their behavior can be understood. Examples have been included

and exercises are spread throughout the text, so that the book may

also be helpful as course material. It treats various methods in full

detail and with more explanation than in various papers (of myself and

others). I hope that this book will prove useful for students, researchers

and engineers.

I have not seen the book myself because of strange problems with

the mailing process (I hope that this only holds for my address)

and so I can state in all honesty that of all books this is the book that I

would like to have most.

**Subject: Workshop in College Park on Women of Applied Mathematics**

Workshop Announcement & Call for Applications

WOMEN OF APPLIED MATHEMATICS: RESEARCH AND LEADERSHIP

A workshop on Women of Applied Mathematics: Research and Leadership will

be held October 8-10, 2003 at the University of Maryland at College

Park. The workshop, consisting of research symposia and career

development panel discussions, will provide a technical and professional

forum for ten senior women and twenty-five early-career women (approx.

5-12 years post Ph.D.) in applied mathematics.

The workshop has two objectives:

* To provide advice and guidance to women who are a few years past

the postdoctoral stage and are now facing new challenges as they

transition to positions beyond entry-level.

* To provide networking among applied mathematicians who have

become, or are striving to become, leaders in their fields.

The following senior participants have committed to participate.

* Marsha Berger, Courant Institute

* Lisa Fauci, Tulane Univ.

* Maria Klawe, Princeton

* Deborah Lockhart, National Science Foundation

* Joyce McLaughlin, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

* Linda Petzold, Univ. California, Santa Barbara

* Cynthia Phillips, Sandia National Labs

* Dianne O'Leary, Univ. Maryland

* Mary Wheeler, Univ. Texas

* Margaret Wright, Courant Institute

We are soliciting applications from early-career women in applied

mathematics to attend the workshop. Participants will receive travel

expenses. After the workshop, early-career participants are expected to

lead an activity promoting women in mathematics and submit a report

detailing that activity. Early-career is roughly as several years past

the postdoctoral stage, at the point where one is nearing or just past

promotion and facing an increase in leadership responsibilities (e.g.,

leading research teams, being PI or co-PI on large proposals, and/or

pursuing opportunities in management or administration). Roughly

speaking, applicants in this category would be 5-12 years past the Ph.D.

Application instructions are available on the web site listed below, and

applications received by July 1, 2003 will receive full consideration.

Web site: http://csmr.ca.sandia.gov/~tgkolda/workshop2003/

This workshop is organized by Dianne P. O'Leary (University of Maryland)

and Tamara G. Kolda (Sandia National Labs). (Pending) Funding has been

generously provided by the Mathematical, Information, and Computational

Sciences (MICS) program in the Office of Science at the U.S. Department

of Energy. The Computer Science Department of the University of Maryland

at College Park will provide facilities for this workshop.

Workshop organizers: Thomas Hinke, NASA Ames

Thilo Kielmann, Vrije Universiteit

Ed Seidel, Albert Einstein Institute

Robert T. Hood, NASA Ames

Susanne Balle, HP

The Applications and Testbeds Research Group (APPS-RG) seeks to facilitate

the use of grid technology by application developers, and to attract new

application domains to the grid.

The User Program Development Tools for the Grid Research Group (UPDT-RG)

seeks to simplify the process of programming on the grid by facilitating

the development and deployment of grid-enabled tools such as debuggers and

performance tuning tools.

Recent experience shows that Grid users run their applications using

various kinds of additional (and frequently tailor-made) tools, ranging

from simple wrappers around Globus commands up to web-based application

portals.

The goals of this workshop are

- to provide a forum for (prospective) applications

utilizing Grids and to disseminate "lessons learned"

from Grid-enabling application codes

- to spread information about tools, toolkits and

other instruments for users and application

programmers

- to encourage users and application programmers to

make use of existing Grid infrastructure

We are looking for presentations on the workshops's subject.

Suggested topics for talks include, but are not limited to,

the following:

A. Experience in converting an existing application to run on the grid

B. Experience in designing a new application to run on the grid

C. Experience in using a grid-enabled application

D. Experience in using or creating tools that support the development or

use of grid applications

E. Thoughts on what the grid should provide to effectively support

applications

F. Thoughts and/or experience on the characteristics of applications or

particular application software that make them well suited for the grid,

or make them ill-suited to run on the grid

**Subject: Workshop in Berkeley on the DOE ACTS Collection**

FOURTH WORKSHOP ON THE DOE ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL SOFTWARE COLLECTION

Robust and High Performance Tools for Scientific Computing

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

August 5-8, 2003

The DOE Advanced CompuTational Software Collection (ACTS Collection,

http://acts.nersc.gov) comprises a set of tools mainly developed at the

Department of Energy's (DOE) laboratories. These

software tools aim to simplify the solution of common and important

computational problems and have substantially benefited a wide range of

scientific and industrial applications. These benefits are

accounted not only for running efficiently in high performing computing

environments but also realizing computation that would not have been

possible otherwise. Despite these successes, there is still

a need for a greater infrastructure to reach out academia and industry

through a dissemination and instruction on the state-of-the-art tools

for high performance computing environments and

simultaneously provide an umbrella for tool developers to receive the

feedback from these communities. This workshop is part of an approach to

build such an infrastructure.

The four-day workshop will present an introduction to the ACTS

Collection for application scientists whose research demand includes

either large amounts of computation, a large volume of

data manipulation, the use of robust numerical algorithms, or

combinations of these. The workshop will include a range of tutorials

on the tools (currently available in the collection and some

deliverables from the DOE SciDAC ISICs), discussion sessions aimed to

solve specific computational needs by the participants, and hands-on

practices using the NERSC's state-of-the-art computers.

We are planning to organize parallel sessions and group the tutorials by

topics, as follows:

Direct and Iterative Methods for the solution of linear and

non-linear systems of equations

PDE's and Multi-level Methods

Numerical Optimization

Structured and Unstructured meshes (Generation, Manipulation and

Computation)

Development of High Performance Computing applications

Performance monitoring and tuning

Grid computing

DOE will fully sponsor a limited number of graduate students and

postdoctoral fellows to participate in this event. This support includes

round-trip transportation to and from Berkeley, local

transportation, lodging, meals and workshop materials. Proposals from

other research scientists are also encouraged.

The deadline for applications is June 9, 2003 and they should be

submitted using the application on-line form:

http://acts.nersc.gov/events/Workshop2003/application.html.

Students and postdoctoral

fellows should submit an abstract describing the nature of their

work, future plans and/or current needs for computation. A letter of

recommendation from the applicant's supervisor also needs to be provided

using the recommendation on-line form:

http://acts.nersc.gov/events/Workshop2003/recommendation.html

The recommendation letter must also arrive no later than June 9, 2003.

Other applicants must submit a letter outlining their current work and future

plans and needs for computational resources with a list of

publications . For more information on the workshop, please contact Tony

Drummond at (510) 486-7624 or Osni Marques at (510) 486-5290.
