**Subject: Butcher Award winners**

It is my pleasure to report that the joint winners of the Butcher

Award in Numerical Analysis were:

Thomas Schmelzer, a student Nick Trefethen at the University of

Oxford, and

Anders Hansen, a student of Arieh Iserles at the University of

Cambridge.

These were awarded at the recent SciCADE conference in St Malo, France.

This award is for the best student presentation at the SciCADE

conferences on differential equations, held every two years.

**Subject: Formal Proofs on Floating Point library**

Dear NA-Net'ers,

The "Formal Proofs on Floating Point" library (FP2) is a set of formal

definitions and theorems (including proofs) to reason about floating

point numbers. It is now stored in the "FP" section of NetLib for

public use. It enables users to formally define types and operations of

floating arithmetic and to deduce properties using a mechanized proof

checker.

http://www.netlib.org/fp/fp2.tgz

This library was first designed by Marc Daumas, Laurent Thery* and

Laurence Rideau*. Contributors now include Sylvie Boldo*, Jean-Michel

Muller, Laurent Fousse*, Ren-Cang Li and Guillaume Melquiond*.

Contributors that were directly interacting with Coq are outlined by a

star.

Latest developments include:

- Proved algorithms for argument reduction

- Software emulation of the FMA using rounding to odd

- A few properties from Prof. W. Kahan

- Results on the ulp of the inverse of a floating-point number from

Dr. P. Markstein

- A link to the IEEE-754 standard

- Radix-independent algorithm to compute the exact error of a

multiplication

- Error of a floating-point division or square root

- Conditions for a*x+y to be faithfully computed

Sources are in the "source" directory and are to be compiled with

version 8.1 of Coq.

Detailed documentations are in the "doc" directory and start with the

"index.html" file.

**Subject: Computing a low rank update of a morally triangular matrix**

Several savvy NA Digest readers have commented that my tool for

remembering the difference between merely, morally, and psychologically

triangular matrices did not actually include definitions of the same.

I apologize for the oversight. If L*U=P*A, then (P'*L)*U=A, and P'*L

is triangularly moral. Thus, please insert between stanzas 1 and 2

of my definition posted last week this very low and very rank update:

If row i less than column j

gives L sub i j zero, say,

that does make me it's very clear,

a matrix mere triangular.

Premultiply by P transpose;

pivot row swaps of L, suppose.

That's the process that gives to me

triangular morality.

But if my columns, one or all

for reasons psychological

are also swapped that makes me be

triangle psychologically.

You can read the revised tool in its entirety at

http://www.cise.ufl.edu/~davis/Horror_matrices#moral ,

along with an illustration by J. Tenniel of some very

filled-in sparse factors L and U.

**Subject: 4th Intl. Conf. on Multiscale Materials Modeling (MMM-2008), Oct 2008**

The School of Computational Science at Florida State University is

pleased to announce the Fourth International Conference on Multiscale

Materials Modeling (MMM-2008). The conference will take place October

27-31, 2008 at Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida, USA.

This biennial conference is the worlds largest theoretical and

computational materials science forum aiming to disseminate the

latest development in the multiscale materials modeling field. This

field transcends the boundaries between materials science, mechanics,

physics and chemistry of materials, and mathematics and computational

science. Materials predictions with unprecedented levels of accuracy

are now being made in areas including basic materials structure and

defects, microstructure evolution and materials response under

extreme conditions, and microstructure-property relationships, which

creates the basis for computational materials design and the

potential for advanced technological applications.

The MMM-2008 conference encourages participation from academia,

national laboratories, and industrial research facilities worldwide.

The conference solicits theoretical, computational, and experimental

contributions addressing all multiscale materials modeling issues.

The following symposia are being organized:

- Mathematical issues in multiscale materials modeling

- Statistical methods for materials deformation and failure

- Multiscale mechanics

- Multiscale modeling of microstructure evolution in materials

- Computational materials design

- Multiscale modeling of radiation effects in materials

- Computational modeling of biological and soft condensed matter systems

For more information about the conference, we invite you to visit the

conference website: www.mmm2008.org. The abstract submission window

is October 2008 through February 2008. Pre-registration is now open.

You are highly encouraged to pre-register as early as possible by

following the "Deadlines and Announcements" link at the MMM-2008

website.

We ask that you kindly circulate this news item to interested

colleagues.

Sixth European Workshop on Automatic Differentiation

http://www.autodiff.org/euroad/6

Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November 2007

INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, France

This 2-days workshop continues the series of the EuroAD Automatic

Differentiation workshops, taking place twice a year. EuroAD workshops

are organized jointly by the University of Hertfordshire, UK,

Cranfield University in Shrivenham, UK, RWTH Aachen University,

Germany, and INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, France. These workshops provide a

forum for the presentation of theoretical developments in and

applications of Automatic Differentiation (AD) and adjoint methods.

The workshop is informal and presentations on subjects such as work in

progress, problem areas for AD, or possible application areas, as well

as completed work are welcome. We particularly encourage PhD students

and those new to the field to attend and present their work.

We welcome every researcher who will present their work on AD theory,

AD tools, or applications of AD. A particular emphasis will be put on

applications of AD to Earth Sciences. This involves topics such as

adjoints of unsteady simulations, variational data assimilation,

interactions between 4D-var data assimilation and other methods,

and applications to meteorology or oceanography.
