**Subject: Golub endows Saylor Professorship at Illinois**

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at

Urbana-Champaign has announced the establishment of the Paul

and Cindy Saylor Professorship. The new Professorship was

endowed through a generous gift from Stanford University Professor

Gene Golub, an Illinois alumnus and long-time supporter of the

Department. The gift was bestowed in honor of Golub's long-standing

friendship with Professor Emeritus Paul Saylor and his wife Cindy.

The department expects to announce the first holder of the

distinguished Saylor Professorship in the next academic year.

**Subject: New iterative solution package for linear systems**

We are happy to publically release ITSOL, a new package for solving

linear systems of equations by iterative methods. ITSOL has been

developed by our research group in the last few years and incorporates

some of the most recent advances in iterative methods. It is written

in C and can be viewed as an extension of the ITSOL module in the old

SPARSKIT package.

Web-site: http://www.cs.umn.edu/~saad/software

Preconditioners included so far:

(1) ILUK (ILU preconditioner with level of fill)

(2) ILUT (ILU preconditioner with threshold)

(3) ILUC (Crout version of ILUT)

(4) VBILUK (variable block preconditioner with level of fill)

(5) VBILUT (variable block preconditioner with threshold)

both VBILUK and VBILUT support automatic block detection

(6) ARMS (Algebraic Recursive Multilevel Solvers -- includes actually

several methods - In particular the standard ARMS and the ddPQ

version which uses nonsymmetric permutations).

**Subject: Listing of graduate CS&E programs**

Hi;

I am trying to build a list of CS&E *graduate* programs. You can find

the current list at

http://www.math.colostate.edu/~estep/education/cse/cselisting.html

This list was generated by starting with some public lists and then

doing web searching on variations of CS&E. This is by no means an

exhaustive approach. I would appreciate any corrections or additions.

Right now the list focuses on CS&E related programs. I am thinking of

adding computational biology and finance as well as a section on

international programs. If you have suggestions for other additions, I

would be obliged.

Best wishes,

Don

**Subject: INTLAB Version 5.2**

Dear colleagues,

the new Version 5.2 of INTLAB, the Matlab toolbox for verified

computations, is available from

http://www.ti3.tu-harburg.de/rump

INTLAB comprises of fast interval operations for real and complex vectors

and matrices, full and sparse, elementary standard functions for real and

complex (interval) data, gradients, Hessians, polynomials, rigorous

input/output and more. Some examples of problem solving routines for

linear and nonlinear systems of equations, eigenvalue problems etc. are

included as well.

A number of changes, improvements and speed-ups have been implemented,

try

help Version5_2.m

For demonstration also Matlab-implementations of our new summation and dot

product routines are given, which will be published in

S.M. Rump, T. Ogita, and S. Oishi. Accurate Floating-Point Summation.

41 pages, submitted for publication, 2006.

Corresponding routines in XBLAS give a result of accuracy eps^2*cond, so

last-bit-accurate results can be expected for condition numbers up to

eps^-1. In contrast, our algorithm ALWAYS compute the result ACCURATE TO THE

LAST BIT, INDEPENDENT of the condition number! Nevertheless it is some 40%

faster than XBLAS (measured computing time in Fortran and C). All algorithms

use solely double precision operations.

Best wishes for the New Year 2006

**Subject: Software Package for Visualizing Human Brain**

Diffusion Simulation Based Fiber Tractography

A preliminary examination version of a software package

for tracking and visualizing human brain white matter

fiber pathways is freely available. The diffusion

simulation based fiber tractography (DST) makes use of

diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) to

in vivo trace the fibers noninvasively. This technique

paves the way to in vivo study anatomical connections

between different functional parts of the human brain,

and has many clinical applications to diagnosing certain

brain disorders and to neurosurgery.

This software package was developed with the generous

support of DOE Office of Science and used the SUNDIALS

software package from DOE's ACTS Collection to solve

the time-dependent diffusion equation.

The software package is freely available from the web

page of the Laboratory for Computational Medical

Imaging & Data Analysis (the CMIDA Lab) at

http://www.cs.uky.edu/~cmida, by clicking the Software

button. Please read the standard disclaimer before you

start using it.

Subject: RISOLV

APMATH ( a subsidiary of UPI http://www.upi.co.il ) is announcing the

release of RISOLV.

RISOLV is a Robust Iterative SOLVer for large scale linear systems. The

algorithm is based on polynomial approximation in the complex plane. As

such, it does not stagnate or breakdown. Whenever a theoretical polynomial

algorithm can reach a solution, so does RISOLV with number of iterations

close to the optimal. It is specially attractive for parallel computing.

Special issue on:

Enabling Technologies for High-Performance Simulations of Reactive Flows

Deadline for paper submission: 28th February 2006

RATIONALE AND FOCUS

Predictive simulations of reactive flows require 3D models of multiphase flows

with a close interaction between physical and chemical processes. The energy

release in both processes is complex and drives the fluid flow; turbulence is a

central issue; detailed chemical kinetic schemes and transport of mass, species,

heat and particles play a key role. Reliable algorithms and software for

efficient solution of the models on large structured and unstructured, possible

moving, grids lead to large-scale computational problems. High-performance

computing and communication are enabling technologies for reliable and

predictive computer simulations of reactive flows. However, advances in

computer architectures, in communication networks, in programming models and

environments are a permanent challenge for the design and development of

efficient methods, algorithms and software needed to approach more and more

complex problems and sophysticated models.

The papers in this special issue should discuss recent challenges and results

in using high-performance technologies for simulations of reactive flows in

scientific and engineering applications. Areas of interest include, but are not

limited to:

* high-performance algorithms and software components;

* visualization and data management tools;

* distributed and grid-enabled Problem Solving Environments;

* advances in modeling detailed chemistry and transport of reactive flows;

* engineering and scientific applications (engine modeling, environmental

modeling, aerospace system modeling, reservoirs modeling,...)

The special issue will contain some of the papers presented at a special session

within the first International Conference on High Performance Computing and

Communication (HPCC'05), that took place in Sorrento-Italy on September 2005,

and other papers from authors actively working on the topics outlined above.
