Subject: RE: Fortran Vs. Matlab
In my NA class, my professor allows us to use any
language(Fortran, C, C++, Java, Maple, Matlab, etc.),
to do our work and my decision was to use Fortran on
the first part of the class and Matlab on the second
one. I decided to do it this way to help myself first
by learning how to efficiently program, from scratch,
the algorithms that appear in the book using Fortran,
and then by learning the nuts and bolts of a script
language like Matlab. I don't think I am loosing
anything with trying both (maybe I am wrong) instead
of learning just one of them.

Subject: Teaching students numerical methods
I have been reading the discussion on teaching students programming skills in
numerical methods. I have taught Structural Dynamics, Matrix Structural
Analysis and Stress Analysis by FEM for civil and structural engineers during
the last 30 years. I also work with consulting structural engineers, who have
designed the tallest buildings in LA, St.Louis, Hoouston, Dallas, New Orleans
and Washington DC. In all these cases, we mainly used FEM software developed
at UC-Berkeley, MIT and Lawrence Livermore. SAP4, STRUDL, DRAIN2D and ANSR1
are examples. Most of these codes are mainly in Fortran 77 and 90 and C. C++
is used now in new software being developed.
I would certainly recommend C++ and Fortran 90 to be used in senior/graduate
level courses for implementing these FEM type algorithms. However, Visual
Basic is also being used in many schools in CS courses. I would agree with
Prof.Nick Negroponte that teaching merely Word and Excel is not very good for
young students. His new $100 PC for children in South America and Asia, uses
only Unix and Linux, which have C and Fortran, for free. IISc, Bangalore has
designed a $125 Simputer, which uses unix and linux. Simputer has text editors
and matlab like routines. This is also used by farmers to download weather

* Wang, C.K. and Salmon, C.G., Introductory Structural Analysis, Prentice
* Cook, R.D, Plesha, M., Concepts and Applications of FEM, John Wiley, 2005.
These books have algorithms, which can be easily programmed in Fortran and
C. The first book has Mastan2, software, in Fortran and C, which can be used
to analyze a tall building, aircraft or a submarine, including nonlinear and
inelastic dynamic analysis. Design follows easily, once you know the element
stress resultants (Forces). Also, my web page has some papers on tall building
design, using approximate methods of analysis. FEM analysis could be verified
using these. The shear-flexure cantilever models have been used since the
1940's to solve aircraft problems.

International workshop on "Modeling & Simulations in Health" (MSH'07)
October 22--25, 2007
National Taiwan University (NTU), Taipei, Taiwan
This workshop is aimed at providing an international forum for researchers
interested in medical simulation, especially for the improvement of medical
diagnosis, disease prevention, therapy strategy and prognosis.
This workshop will be held not only for the scientific exchange of idea, data,
and methods, to obtain feedback, to find synergies, and to establish contacts
but also in the spirit of answering to calls of the Framework Program 7 of the
European Union, largely open to non-EU countries.
In the continuation of the annual workshop of the ERCIM Working Group "IM2IM",
the meeting goal is to bring together researchers from diverse fields related
to medical simulation, such as medical simulation for therapy and training,
computational physiology, modeling of pathophysiological processes, tissue
The workshop will take place on four days, October 22--25, 2007. It comprises
four scientific sessions, a half-day cultural event (D2, visit of the National
Palace Museum in Taipei with collections of the forbidden City in Beijing),
and a half-day devoted to the ERCIM Working Group "IM2IM" (D3).
The conference will focus on the following themes:
1. image processing, virtual reality in medicine and surgery
(medical simulators, computer-aided diagnosis, treatment planning),
2. image-based computational domains,
3. particle flow (blood microcirculation, aerosols),
4. cancer angiogenesis,
5. blood flow effects on heat transfer during cryotherapy and
radiofrequency ablation in tumors,
6. fluid-structure interaction and implanted medical devices (stent),
7. design and shape optimization of medical devices,
8. multiscale modeling for the blood vessel network,
9. experimental validation
The four sessions will a priori be organized using
the following classification:
1. theoretical modeling
2. numerical analysis and scientific computing
3. medical image processing and meshing
4. medical infographics, experiments.

The purpose of the meeting is for industrialists and academics to identify
inverse problems of common interest. The pragmatics of solving industrial
(real-world) inverse problems has been addressed in Inverse Problems 15 (1999)
The Workshop/Sandpit will follow the format of presentations from industry by
way of introducing the problems on the first day, followed by intensive work
on the problems by groups (academic and industrial) during the next day.
The workshop will be facilitated by the Industrial Mathematics Knowledge
As an outcome of this activity it is hoped that a rapport between academics
and industrialists will be established and cemented through possible grant
proposals for PhD Studentships / CASE Awards and Post-docs to be submitted to
the EPSRC or to other foundations.
Academic participation is open to all members of the inverse problems
community or related subjects, including postgraduate students, for whom the
proposed activity provides an excellent training in oriented research.
Please note that there are no fees to be charged for participating at the

Subject: Postdoc position in air pollution data assimilation
VITO’s research group “Modelling of Atmospheric Processes” invites
applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in data assimilation for
urban- to regional-scale air quality modelling. The focus will be on
implementing a data assimilation scheme in an existing deterministic air
quality model, using both ground-based and remotely sensed data as input,
and leading to a demonstrably improved air quality model. The research will
include participation in several EU and ESA funded collaborative projects,
and will also involve providing guidance to PhD students.
Applicants should have (or hope to obtain soon) a PhD in physics,
mathematics, atmospheric science, or engineering, and have experience with
data assimilation techniques (though not necessarily in the context of
atmospheric modelling). A good programming experience is required, as is the
ability to manipulate large computer codes in a Linux/Unix environment.
The post is full-time and for a fixed term of two years, and will be based
in Belgium at the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO,
http://www.vito.be/english/index.htm) in collaboration with the University
of Antwerp. Interested candidates are requested to send an application
letter, together with a CV (incl. publication list) and name, address,
telephone number, and email of two references, to:

overall goal of the project is to develop general
computational tools, and associated software, for assimilation of
real life measurements into 2-D and 3-D fluid dynamics transport
models. Key technologies the student will gain exposure to include
adjoint modeling, optimization, parallel
computing, and advanced numerical methods.
The applicants should have exposure and research interests in
computational science, numerical analysis, parallel computing or
optimization. Basic knowledge
of inverse problems is a strong plus. Review of applications will begin
immediately and continue until the position is filled. Florida State is an
equal opportunity employer. Women and
