**Subject: New book, A Computational Differential Geometry Approach to Grid Generation**

Springer has issued in the Scientific Computation Series the second edition of

the book

Liseikin V. D. "A Computational Differential Geometry Approach to Grid

generation. Springer, Berlin, 2006":

http://www.springer.com/dal/home/generic/search/results?SGWID=1-40109-22-173671321-0

In comparison with the first edition this edition contains a lot of new

results related to mathematical models, algorithms, and applications of grids.

The book describes a comprehensive technology to generate in a uniform manner

both structured and unstructured grids satisfying the following individual and

balanced properties:

1. robustness (well-posedness, simplicity, portability, etc);

2. comprehensiveness (realization of all necessary grids);

3. invariance (independence of parametrizations of physical geometries);

4. regularity ( nonsingularity, orthogonality of grid lines, small

deformation of grid cells);

5. grid clustering in the zones of large variations of functions (shock

waves, boundary and interior layers);

6. grid clustering in the zones of large or small values of functions

(approximation or interpolation errors, depth of a basin);

7. grid lines alignment with vector fields (magnetic fields in

tokamak-related problems).

The grid technology is based on the numerical solution of inverted Beltrami

and diffusion equations in monitor metrics that provides both individual and

balanced grid properties required in practical applications. The book

releases recent results of the development of this technology including the

formulation of the monitor metrics to realize the grid properties and the

development of grid generation codes. Applications to some fluid dynamics

and plasma problems are exhibited.

**Subject: New book on large-scale computations**

To all readers of "Numerical Analysis Digest",

This is to inform you that we (Ivan Dimov from the University of Reading

and I) have recently published the book "Computational and Numerical

Challenges in Environmental Modelling" in Elsevier. The major topics in

the book are: (a) numerical solution of some classes of partial

differential equations arising in environmental modelling, (b)

organization of the computations for very large tasks in the efforts to

utilize better the cache memory, (c) parallel computations and (d)

discussion of several applications (including here the influence of

climate changes on pollution levels).

The application of sparse matrix techniques plays a very important role

when the problems solved are very large (containing more than one

million equations). A special sparse matrix technique for such large

problems is also discussed in the book. It is documented, by using many

numerical examples, that the new sparse matrix technique ensures better

exploitation of the cache memory and faster computations on several

parallel architectures.

Ph.D. position at TU Eindhoven (The Netherlands) "Parameterized model

order reduction for variability in design"

Project: In the RF (radio frequency) domain, design is becoming more and more

layout driven. Electromagnetic (EM) solvers are used to model and simulate

such layout structures, by solving the system of Maxwell equations in 3

dimensions. The information obtained must be translated into an equivalent

electronic circuit that approximately describes the behaviour of the

structure. This translation requires the use of Parameterized Model Order

Reduction (PMOR). The project will consist of developing and applying suitable

PMOR techniques in EM simulation, so as to satisfy the needs and requirements

for parameterized models for layout structures. In this way, designers can

avoid the time-consuming manual construction of models. The models incorporate

effects that describe changes in the layout. These models must also be

combined with statistical procedures for investigating the effects of

variability in designs.

What we ask: The candidate for this position should have a Master's degree in

Mathematics/Scientific Computing, with knowledge of or affinity with

electronics design or Electrical Engineering, with a profound knowledge of

numerical methods.

What we offer: The position will be a 4-year Ph.D. position at TU Eindhoven,

carried out at Philips Semiconductors/NXP Semiconductors, situated at the High

Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The region around Eindhoven is very

active in the electronics industry, with main centres in Leuven (IMEC) and

Aachen nearby. There is a close cooperation with Eindhoven University of

Technology (TU Eindhoven). A salary is offered starting euro 1813,- per month

(gross) in the first year and increasing up to euro 2394,- per month (gross)

in the last year. Moreover, 8% bonus share (holiday supplement) is provided

annually. Assistance for finding accommodation can be given.

Information and application: Information about the position can be obtained

from the project leader, Prof. Wil Schilders (Philips/NXP and TU Eindhoven) by

email: wil.schilders@philips.com, or w.h.a.schilders@tue.nl If you are

interested in this position, send a detailed curriculum vitae, a publication

list, your course program and corresponding grades, references, recommendation

letters and all other information that might be relevant to your application

to the address below, mentioning the vacancy number V 32.665.
