Subject: Jun Liu

It is sad to report that Dr. Liu, Jun of Fluides, Automatique et Systmes
Thermique (FAST), Unit Mixte de Recherche Paris VI & Paris XI associee au
CNRS, France passed away at the age of 41 on January 26, 2004, due to a
previously unknown heart problem. Jun was a strong young numerical
analyst with contributions to numerical solution of inverse problems,
control problems, and PDEs. He will be remembered as a pleasant and nice
person and a great colleague. Jun will be very much missed by his family
and friends around the world. His funeral will take place in Paris next
week. For further information, please contact his sister Liu, Xiaoping at

Subject: Workshop in Italy on the Technological Aspects of Mathematics

"International Workshop on the Technological
Aspects of Mathematics II -
Computational Methods and Mathematical Software"

Montecatini Terme (Pistoia, Italy), April 1-3, 2004

Celebrating Donato Trigiante's 60th birthday


Computational codes represent an outstanding technological aspect
of the Mathematical Sciences: they constitute the basic tool for
the problem solving in virtually any applied field. The construction
of such codes requires, in turn, the systematic solution of a
number of related sub-problems, which constitute the intermediate
steps to reach the desired goals. This aspect of Numerical
Mathematics is often a source of new trends of investigation, and
a necessary building block to make Mathematics usable from people
involved in solving real-life problems.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together numerical analysts,
applied mathematicians, and researchers to present, discuss and
exchange ideas about the numerical solution of mathematical
problems. The main theme will be the numerical solution of
differential problems and related topics.

Subject: Workshop at in Berkeley on The Genetics of Complex Disease

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) announces a workshop on
``The Genetics of Complex Disease,'' to take place next week, February 9-13,
2004, in Berkeley California. Rapid advances in genetics, computation, and
much else have resulted in the amassing of massive sets of data across the
entire spectrum of biomedical sciences. There are multiple challenges in
extracting reliable quantitative information from these data while
protecting the privacy of members of the public. The mathematical sciences
necessarily occupy a fundamental role in interdisciplinary efforts that have
been, and especially that will be, required to meet these challenges. The
workshop will cover the entire process that pertains to its focus: the
current state of knowledge regarding the genetics of complex diseases.
Topics will include analyses of the human genome and the genomes of other
organisms, and genetic changes that may predispose to prevalent and complex
diseases such as cancer and heart disease --for example, technologies that
enable understanding ``gene expression'' and proteins. Findings to be
reported span the gap ``from bench to bedside.''

Attached to this e-mail message is a poster for the meeting and schedule
that includes abstracts.

The Press and active science writers are invited to attend sessions of the
workshop and to join with us from 4:30 to 6:00PM, February 9th at a
reception for the participants. The organizers of the workshop and many
participants will be available to answer questions. Among them will be:

Richard Olshen (Biostatistics, Stanford)
Genetic studies of predisposition to hypertension and many aspects
of ``pattern recognition;''

Thomas Quertermous (Cardiovascular Medicine, Stanford)
Molecular and population-based research into the genetic basis of
cardiovascular development, function and disease.

Nik Schork (Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego)
Human genomics/Pharmacogenomics. Genetic basis of complex traits and

Wing Wong (Statistics and Biostatistics, Harvard)
Analysis of gene expression microarrays,and evolution of cellular
aging and sexual reproduction.
