Subject: New Website for Hierarchical Matrices

There is a new website,, on the topic of
hierarchical matrices.
Hierarchical matrices were introduced by Hackbusch in 1999 and have
since evolved into an efficient method for

- compressing integral operators,
- computing the inverses of elliptic partial differential operators,
- constructing very robust preconditioners for integral and partial
differential equations,
- solving large matrix equations and
- evaluating matrix functions like the matrix exponential efficiently.

All of these applications are covered by the HLib package by Grasedyck
and Boerm, a C library that provides routines for matrix creation,
arithmetics, compression and conversion. It also contains a number of
basic routines for the discretization of elliptic differential operators
and boundary integral operators.

The website contains a (by no means complete) list of articles on
hierarchical matrices and related topics, including links to a number
of introductory papers and the lecture notes of the popular winter school
on this subject, a list of frequently asked questions and a description
of the HLib package.

Subject: New Book, Newton Methods for Nonlinear Problems

Dear Colleagues,

May I draw your attention to my recent book

Newton Methods for Nonlinear Problems.
Affine Invariance and Adaptive Algorithms

that has just appeared as Springer Series Computational Mathematics
(SCM), vol. 35.

The book deals with the efficient numerical solution of challenging
nonlinear problems in science and engineering, both in finite
dimension (algebraic equations) and in infinite dimension (ordinary
and partial differential equations). Its focus is on local and global
Newton methods for direct problems or Gauss-Newton methods for
inverse problems. The term 'affine invariance' means that the
presented algorithms and their convergence analysis are invariant
under one out of four subclasses of affine transformations of the
problem to be solved. Compared to traditional textbooks, the
distinguishing affine invariance approach leads to shorter theorems
and proofs and permits the construction of fully adaptive algorithms.
A software list is included.

On one hand, this book is a textbook addressing itself to graduate
students of mathematics and computational sciences -- with lots of
numerical illustrations, comparison tables, and exercises. On the
other hand, the book is a research monograph addressing itself to
numerical analysts and computational scientists working on the
subject -- containing a lot of otherwise unpublished material and
opening many directions for possible future research.


1. Introduction

2. Systems of Equations: Local Newton Methods
3. Systems of Equations: Global Newton Methods
4. Least-Squares Problems: Gauss-Newton Methods
5. Parameter Dependent Systems: Continuation Methods

6. Stiff ODE Initial Value Problems
7. ODE Boundary Value Problems
8. PDE Boundary Value Problems

More information -- the Preface, the detailed Contents, and an
Outline of Contents -- can be downloaded from

Writing the book has been fun.
Hopefully reading will be fun, too!

Theory and Practice of Finite Elements
Vol. 159 of Applied Mathematical Series
Alexandre Ern and Jean-Luc Guermond
Springer-Verlag, New York, 2004
ISBN 0-387-20574-8


This book presents the mathematical theory of finite elements, starting
from basic results on interpolation and approximation theory and
building up to more recent research topics, such as discontinuous
Galerkin methods, subgrid viscosity stabilization, and a posteriori
error estimation.

One of the main objectives of the book is to go beyond the Lax-Milgram
paradigm and coercive settings by emphasizing the fundamental role of inf-sup
conditions. The book also covers implementation issues needed to write or
understand a finite element code.

Written at the graduate level, the text contains numerous examples
and exercises. It is intended to serve as a graduate textbook and
to be used by researchers in mathematics, computer science, and

Subject: IMSL Thread Safe Fortran Numerical Library

Dear Colleagues,

Visual Numerics is pleased to announce the availability of the IMSL(TM)
Thread Safe Fortran Numerical Library

The IMSL Thread Safe Fortran Numerical Library is a fully thread safe
edition of the IMSL Fortran Numerical Library and includes all algorithms
from the IMSL Fortran Numerical Library. Routines have been checked and
tested to ensure that multi-threaded, parallel applications can rely on the
entire library. The IMSL Thread Safe Fortran Numerical Library is available
on selected platforms that support thread safety.

Like the IMSL Fortran Numerical Library, the IMSL Thread Safe Fortran
Library allows programmers to utilize optional arguments of the modern
Fortran syntax for every relevant algorithm throughout the library.
Programmers can opt for simplified code, while maintaining full control in
cases where detailed arguments are required.

For more information on the IMSL Thread Safe Fortran Numerical Library,
please visit:

The IMSL Libraries include coverage of a broad range of mathematics and
statistics algorithm topics, ranging from linear algebra and transforms to
optimization and multivariate analysis. The IMSL math and statistics
libraries are available in pure Fortran, C, and Java versions.

Subject: Second European Finite Element Fair in Berlin

Dear colleagues,

it is a pleasure to call your attention to the



[following EFEF 1 held in 2003 at the Newton Institute in Cambridge: ]

The local hosts of this Forum/Fair/Marketplace of ideas,

Eberhard Baensch (WIAS)
Carsten Carstensen (HUB)
Peter Deuflhard (ZIB)
Ralf Kornhuber (FU) and
Harry Yserentant (TUB),

would like to invite interested colleagues to present informal
contributions between Friday 13:30, 4th June, and Saturday 17:00, 5th June,
in Berlin.

The Fair's format is similar to that of earlier informal finite
element gatherings in the US (e.g. the FE Circus and FE Rodeo).

The focus of the meeting is the numerical treatment of PDEs, and
any aspect of finite elements and their mathematical foundation
interpreted in a broad sense. One of our principles is that
everybody may speak without advance notice. However, it will make
the Fair somewhat more predictable and enjoyable (from the organisers'
point of view!) if you do register a.s.a.p., preferably at least one week in
advance, on the webpage:

where we keep up-to-date information of all kinds, including travel and

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin in June!

1. Scientific and engineering computing
2. Problem solving environments
3. Advanced numerical computation and optimization
4. Complex systems: modeling and simulation
5. Parallel and distributed computing
6. Architectures and computation models, compiler, hardware and OS issues
7. Memory system, I/O, Tools, programming environment and language supports
8. Performance modeling and evaluation
9. Artificial intelligence
10. Visualization and virtual reality
11. Hardware/software co-design and VLSI support
12. Cluster, grid and web-based computing and simulation

Subject: Workshop in Innsbruck on Exponential Integrators

Workshop on Exponential Integrators
Innsbruck, Austria
October 20-23, 2004

First Call for Participation and Papers

The idea of exponential integrators is an old one and dates back to
the sixties of the past century. In the last few years there has been
renewed interest in these integration methods stemming from
geometric integration and parabolic problems.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together people working in the
field as well as PhD students that want to start in this area. We try to
cover both, theoretical and practical aspects of exponential integrators.
The workshop consists of a plenary talk by an invited speaker and
submitted talks.

Invited speaker: Marlis Hochbruck (University of Duesseldorf)
