Subject: NA and von Neumann anniversaries this year


2007 is the 60th birthday of NA. In the 1940s the name numerical
analysis acquired a new meaning to refer to the mathematical research
on algorithms that people such as John von Neumann felt would be
needed to make best use of the computers just then being invented.
The birth of the modern subject can be credibly dated to 1947 when von
Neumann and Herman Goldstine published a paper [1] on errors in
computational science. The paper was the first to discuss in an
archival journal so many basic ideas such as numerical stability of
discretized partial differential equations and backward error. Von
Neumann was influential in Washington and helped begin government
support for computer science and numerical analysis research in the
United States.

[1] J. von Neumann and H. H. Goldstine, "Numerical Inverting of
Matrices of High Order," Bulletin of the American Mathematical
Society, 53(11), 1947.

The next time your department search committee decides it really needs
to hire another algebraic topologist or analytic number theorist or
whatever, you might remind your chairman that this subject von Neumann
founded, numerical analysis, accounts for the largest number of papers
written in any branch of mathematics second only to PDEs.

2007 is also the 50th anniversary of von Neumann's untimely death [2]
barely a dozen years after he helped start the computer revolution.

[2] "Dr. von Neumann of AEC, 53, Dies," New York Times, February 9,

Since the international meetings scheduled for this year do not seem
to be commemorating these events, I would be happy to help you
remember them with a colloquium lecture that I have prepared about the
histories of mathematics and computers that form the context for von
Neumann and Goldstine's work. Please contact me for further
information. Travel outside the San Francisco area would have to be
paid by the host institution.

Subject: Interactive Educational Modules in Scientific Computing

I am pleased to announce the availability of a comprehensive set of
interactive modules to assist students in learning the basic concepts
and algorithms of scientific computing. Each module is a Java applet
that is accessible through a web browser. For each applet, the user
can select problem data and algorithm choices interactively and then
receive immediate feedback on the results, both numerically and
graphically. Although the modules can be used alone or in conjunction
with any textbook, some of the specific examples are based on my book
Scientific Computing: An Introductory Survey, 2nd edition,
McGraw-Hill, 2002 (see ). To
access the modules, point your web browser to the following website:

The modules were developed by students Evan VanderZee, Jessica Schoen,
Jeffrey Naisbitt, and Nicholas Exner under the supervision of Michael
Heath. Please report suggestions for improvements or ideas for new
modules to

Subject: Combinatorial tools for parallel sparse matrix computations, Sept. 2007

( held at the
Gdansk, Poland, September 9-12, 2007

Many aspects and problems in High-Performance Scientific Computing may benefit
from the use of combinatorial tools. These tools and related techniques are
already common in sparse matrix computations. Their importance increases
further with the emergence of novel parallel architectures and algorithms
targeting cutting-edge problems in science and engineering.

Such tools as graph algorithms facilitate efficient reordering or partitioning
of a sparse matrix or enable its compressed representation. Graph
partitioning algorithms are often used as a front-end step preceding different
operations. Their goal is to distribute a matrix (or a mesh) on high
performance parallel computers in a suitable way for parallel execution, such
that the load is balanced and the interprocessor communication is minimized.
Often there are additional constraints, when for example, a scientific
simulation requires that the graph partitioning is dynamic as the load changes
dynamically. The aim of the Workshop is to provide a forum for an exchange of
recent ideas, insights, and experiences on the following topics of interest:

* Efficient combinatorial algorithms for sparse matrices;
* Graph partitioning and reordering algorithms;
* Applications of combinatorial tools;
* Load balancing using graph partitioning.

Authors should submit papers including an abstract to by
April 30, 2007. Papers are not to exceed 10 pages in Springer LNCS format.
Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit
and relevance to the workshop. Abstracts of accepted papers will be available
during the conference in the form of a brochure.

Subject: INSF2007, Intl. Conf. on Numerical Schemes for Flow Problems, June 2007


INSF2007: International Conference on Recent Developments of Numerical
Schemes for Flow Problems - 30 years from upwind finite element methods

Fukuoka, Japan, June 27-29, 2007

Important Dates:
Dead line for abstract submission: March 31, 2007
Notification of acceptance: April 10, 2007
Deadline for conference registration: May 31, 2007

The purpose of this conference is to discuss recent developments of
efficient and reliable numerical schemes for flow problems as well as
stability, convergence, and a posteriori analyses and applications to real
problems. In these thirty years there has been a remarkable progress in
upwind type finite element methods, including Petrov-Galerkin methods and
characteristic-curve methods, and so on. We, therefore, rather focus on
finite element schemes, but we also cover any other schemes and topics
related to numerical computation of fluid dynamics.

students in applied mathematics and computer science for summer internship

Scientific Computing and Mathematical Modeling (SCMM) applies mathematical
and computational techniques to a variety of challenging problems in
pharmaceutical research. We are the premier mathematical modeling group
in the pharmaceutical industry. Our group works on mathematical models
related to the biology of disease states and drug interventions, the
chemistry and physics of drug formulations and delivery devices, and the
structure of large biochemical pathways in cells. In addition, we develop
sophisticated computational tools that are used to build and calibrate
mathematical models, incorporate large quantities of experimental data,
and visualize the results of model-generated computational experiments.

For Summer 2007 we are seeking for graduate students and highly advanced
undergraduates for three internship positions. The projects are listed
below together with the required skills for each position:

Lipoprotein metabolism: Mathematical biology, scientific computing,
mathematical modeling
Model calibration and optimization: Numerical analysis, optimization,
Matlab programming
Scientific computing: Programming

We seek mature, motivated self-starters who can successfully integrate
sophisticated mathematics and computer software with real-world biological
problems. The internship positions may be located at our facilities in the
Philadelphia area or in Research Triangle Park, NC.
