Subject: Lotka-Volterra Applications

Dear colleagues,
I am seeking any information sources concerning
applications of the Lotka-Voltera equations (multispecies models)
in the real world problems (e.g., economics, chemistry, biology) with
emphasis to computer simulation of the described phenomenon.

Thanks for help.

Subject: TetGen, Tetrahedral Mesh Generator

Dear NA readers,

I'm pleased to announce the release of TetGen 1.3

TetGen version 1.3
A Quality Tetrahedral Mesh Generator and 3D Delaunay Triangulator

Now available from:

TetGen generates exact Delaunay tetrahedralizations, constrained
Delaunay tetrahedralizations, and quality tetrahedral meshes. The
latter are quality conforming Delaunay and nicely graded if no input
angle is smaller than 60 degree.

This program, written in C++, includes a suit of state-of-the-art
algorithms for Delaunay tetrahedralization and quality mesh
generation. It can be compiled into an executable program or a library
which can be integrated into other applications. The code is highly
portable and has been successfully compiled and tested on all major
operating systems, e.g. Unix/Linux, MacOS, Windows, etc.

Version 1.3 was completely re-designed from the previous version. It
is focused on enhancing the ability to mesh geometries with
arbitrarily complicated shapes. The algorithm for constructing
constrained Delaunay tetrahedralizations is new. It tends to use fewer
additional points than other methods for recovering the boundary of
the mesh domainn. The implementation of TetGen works stably through our

Other new features include:

- Refine pre-generated meshes (-r switch) with different strategies:
the new points can be automatically generated (-q, -a) or supplied
by the user (-i), or both;
- Interface for calling TetGen from another program;
- Remesh arbitrary surface triangulation into its constrained
Delaunay or conforming Delaunay mesh before doing refinement,
which will reduce a number of Steiner points.
- Ability to detect incorrect inputs and give warning messages for
finding the underlying problems.
- Ability to generate 10-nodes tetrahedra (-o2).

Some of new features are illustrated in:

A graphic program, TetView - A Tetrahedral Mesh and Piecewise Linear
Complex Viewer, is first released. It can be used to visualize the
input and output files of TetGen. It also has many features for
understanding and analysing the viewing objects. It dumps screen
contents in high quality encapsulated postscript format. The
executable file (on Unix/Linux platforms) is available from:

For more information as well as examples, please see TetGen's website:

I heartly welcome any questions, comments, especially on the
development of new methods towards quality tetrahedral meshes,
conforming Delaunay tetrahedralizations, and anisotrophic (conforming
Delaunay) meshes, and other related topics.

Best regards

Across the Board:
The Mathematics of Chessboard Problems
John J. Watkins

Across the Board is the definitive work on chessboard problems. It is not
simply about chess but the chessboard itself--that simple grid of squares so
common to games around the world. And, more importantly, the fascinating
mathematics behind it. From the Knight's Tour Problem and Queens Domination
to their many variations, John Watkins surveys all the well-known problems
in this surprisingly fertile area of recreational mathematics. Can a knight
follow a path that covers every square once, ending on the starting square?
How many queens are needed so that every square is targeted or occupied by
one of the queens?

Approximating Perfection:
A Mathematician's Journey into the World of Mechanics
Leonid P. Lebedev and Michael J. Cloud

This is a book for those who enjoy thinking about how and why Nature can be
described using mathematical tools. Approximating Perfection considers the
background behind mechanics as well as the mathematical ideas that play key
roles in mechanical applications.

Auxiliary Signal Design for Failure Detection
Stephen L. Campbell and Ramine Nikoukhah

Many industries, such as transportation and manufacturing, use control
systems to insure that parameters such as temperature or altitude behave in
a desirable way over time. For example, pilots need assurance that the plane
they are flying will maintain a particular heading. An integral part of
control systems is a mechanism for failure detection to insure safety and
reliability.

Subject: Workshop in Berkeley on High End Computer Simulations

Fifth Workshop on the DOE Advanced Computational Software Collection
Enabling Technologies For High End Computer Simulations
Place: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Date: August 24-27, 2004

The DOE Advanced CompuTational Software Collection (ACTS Collection, comprises a set of 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 each 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, 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
+ Software Interoperability
