**Subject: Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software awarded at ICIAM 07**

The 2007 Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software was awarded to

Wolfgang Bangerth (Texas A&M University), Guido Kanschat (Texas A&M

University), and Ralph Hartmann (DLR Braunschweig) for deal.II, a

software library for computational solution of partial differential

equations using adaptive finite elements (www.dealii.org). The

presentation took place at the 6th International Congress on

Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2007) in Zurich,

Switzerland.

deal.II is a large, object-oriented software library that facilitates

the implementation of finite element algorithms with mesh adaptivity

and complex shape functions. A unified interface provides support for

applications with one, two, and three space dimensions. The library

includes extensive documentation, an impressive number of examples,

and a website tutorial, all of which aim to make the data structures

and algorithms used as transparent as possible.

dealII is open source and can be downloaded from the Internet. With

its emphasis on generality and ease of implementation, deal.II has

already been used in a wide range of applications, including fluid

flow, magnetohydrodynamics, biomedical inverse imaging problems, fuel

cell modeling, and simulation of crystal growth. More than 60

publications show results obtained with deal.II.

The Prize is awarded every four years to the entry that best addresses

all phases of the preparation of high-quality numerical software, and

is sponsored by Argonne National Laboratory (US), the National

Physical Laboratory (UK) and the Numerical Algorithms Group (UK).

**Subject: From caf' to math (poem)**

The quote "a mathematician is a machine that turns coffee into theorems"

is commonly attributed to Erdos (it was probably Renyi). I'm sure most

NA Digesters would agree with the quote, whoever it's from. Me? I

turn caf to code, and thus this ode:

An Ode to Caf, by T.D.

An ode to caf

I think I'll cue.

With eau de caf,

I think I'll brew.

Oh no, decaf?

A task Tim blew!

Alas! the gaffe!

You see I'm blue!

My output math

is cut in two!

No caf I hath,

No math, I'm through.

With half and half,

Try two I'll do.

A cup o' caf

I shall imbue.

To turn the caf,

equations' glue,

into the math,

said Erdos too.

Stability and Stabilization of Time-Delay Systems: An Eigenvalue Based

Approach

Silviu-Iulian Niculescu, LSS-Supelec, France

SIAM Book Series on Advances in Design and Control 12 /

ISBN 978-0-898716-32-0 / available October 2007

Publisher's page:

http://www.ec-securehost.com/SIAM/DC12.html

Book Description:

Time-delays are important components of many dynamical systems that describe

coupling or interconnection between dynamics, propagation or transport

phenomena, and heredity and competition in population dynamics. This

monograph addresses the problem of stability analysis and the stabilization

of dynamical systems subjected to time-delays. It presents a wide and self-

contained panorama of analytical methods and computational algorithms using

a unified eigenvalue-based approach illustrated by examples and applications

in electrical and mechanical engineering, biology, and complex network

analysis.

This text bridges the fields of control (analysis and feedback design,

robustness, and uncertainty) and numerical analysis (explicit algorithms and

methods). The authors present solutions of the (robust) stability analysis

and stabilization problem of linear time-delay systems, which are the result

of this cross-fertilization of control theory, numerical linear algebra,

numerical bifurcation analysis, and optimization.

WORKSHOP in Memory of PROFESSOR HAYRI KOREZLIOGLU

Recent Developments in Financial Mathematics and Stochastic Calculus

METU, Ankara, Turkey, April 25-26, 2008

https://kolmogorov.iam.metu.edu.tr/korezlioglu/

Scope:

On June 26, 2007, our dear teacher and friend Prof. Dr. Hayri

Korezlioglu passed away at the age of 77. Professor Korezlioglu

was the founder and chair of the Department of Financial

Mathematics at the Institute of Applied Mathematics (IAM) of

the Middle East Technical University (METU). The institute was

established in 2002 (http://www3.iam.metu.edu.tr/). That he is no

longer among us means a great loss for everyone at IAM.

IAM is organizing a special workshop in memory of Professor Hayri

Korezlioglu. It would like to share moments of science and friendship

in his honour, in areas of applied mathematics which Professor

Korezlioglu worked in as a researcher, educator and as a pioneer in

Turkey. The workshop will follow a series of seminars for

practitioners from the financial sector, mainly, from Turkey, and for

our students. Its program aims to represent various subjects

constituting the title of the event. Talks will focus on the progress

made in Financial Mathematics for modeling financial phenomena

and developing numerical techniques for applications. An additional

emphasis will be made on the theoretical foundations in Stochastic

Calculus. Concerning applications, a major problem is model

identification based on observations. In many countries, particularly

in developing economies, statistical data are insufficient. This

creates both decision making problems under uncertainty and model

risks.

The scientific goals of the workshop consist in sharing and

discussing recent excellent research achievements, in preparing

future projects on modern challenges in science and development

of the financial sector, and is an invitation to the youth into this

dynamics, with a special emphasis on guiding it. The workshop program

will consist of tutorials, invited and contributed papers.

**Subject: NIPS 2007 Wksp on Machine Learning for Systems Problems, Dec 2007**

Call for Abstracts: NIPS 2007 Workshop on Machine Learning for Systems

Problems

In the last few years, there has been a budding interaction between

machine learning and computer systems researchers. In particular,

statistical machine learning techniques have found a wide range of

successful applications in many core systems areas, from designing

computer microarchitectures and analyzing network traffic patterns to

managing power consumption in data centers and beyond. However,

connecting these two areas has its challenges: while systems problems

are replete with mountains of data and hidden variables, complex sets of

interacting systems, and other exciting properties, labels can be hard

to come by, and the measure of success can be hard to define.

Furthermore, systems problems often require much more than high

classification accuracy - the answers from the algorithms need to be

both justifiable and actionable. Dedicated workshops in systems

conferences have emerged (for example, SysML 2006 and SysML 2007) to

address this area, though they have had little visibility to the machine

learning community. A primary goal of this workshop is thus to expose

these new research opportunities in systems areas to machine learning

researchers, in the hopes of encouraging deeper and broader synergy

between the two communities. During the workshop, through various

planned overviews, invited talks, poster sessions, group discussions,

and panels, we would like to achieve three objectives. First, we wish to

discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that are inherent to

this area. Second, we want to discuss and identify "low-hanging fruit"

that are be more easily tackled using existing learning techniques.

Finally, we will cover how researchers in both areas can make rapid

progress on these problems using existing toolboxes for both machine

learning and systems. We hope that this workshop will present an

opportunity for intensive discussion of existing work in machine

learning and systems, as well as inspire a new generation of researchers

to become involved in this exciting domain.

Call for Abstracts: We are seeking 2-page abstracts about recent work

at the intersection of machine learning and systems. We welcome

preliminary work and work you may plan to publish at a later conference:

we are intentionally not creating proceedings for this workshop so that

authors are free to submit work to later venues. However, if there is

sufficient interest we will explore the possibility of a special issue

of a journal or a book seeded with selected papers from the workshop.

Please email your abstracts in PDF format to: mlsys07@yahoogroups.com

by October 31, 2007. We will select abstracts for presentation at the

workshop by November 7, 2007. Please send any questions you may have

about the workshop to this address as well. We look forward to hearing

from you!

Fifth Workshop on:

STRUCTURAL DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS: Computational Aspects

June 17-20, 2008

Capitolo-Monopoli, Bari, Italy

The workshop will take place at Hotel Villaggio Porto Giardino in

Capitolo, Monopoli, Bari, Italy (http://www.portogiardino.it)

The main aim of this workshop is to put together researchers of

different areas, in particular Mathematics and Engineering, to give

the opportunity for discussing recent developments in computational

methods for: Numerical methods for ODEs; Non-smooth dynamical systems;

Dynamical systems with variable structure; Smooth decomposition of

matrices depending on parameters; Krylov methods for matrix functions

in ODEs; Numerical methods for ODEs on manifolds.

Both numerical and theoretical aspects of the previous topics will be

welcome. The workshop will consist of invited lectures, contributed

talks and of a poster session.

A preliminary list of speakers is the following one:

Chistian Lubich (University of Tuebingen, Germany)

Erik Van Vleck (University of Kansas, USA)

Elio Usai University of Cagliari, Italy)

Luca Dieci (Georgia Tech Institute, Atlanta, USA).

Mario Di Bernardo (University of Bristol, U.K and University of Naples)

Valeria Simoncini (University of Bologna, Italy).

To stimulate the participation of PhD students there will be a poster

session. The session is restricted to students, who will be able to

showcase their work. Students who have already made some progress on

their thesis, can present a synopsis of their work, whereas students

who are just beginning their thesis, can present an overview of what

they are proposing to study. The main purpose of this format is to

provide PhD students with feedback on their work, accomplished or

planned, in a less formal setting than that of a plenary presentation.

A selection of plenary and contibution talks will be considered for

pubblication on a special issue of an Elsevier Journal. More details

will be given during the workshop. The submitted papers will be

subject to the standard review process.

**Subject: Molecular Electronic Structure Calculation, Jun 2008**

Odyssey of Mathematical and Computational Aspects of Molecular Electronic

Structure Calculation

June 2-5, 2008.

At the beautiful Campus Saint-Jean, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

In June 2008, the University of Alberta's Campus Saint-Jean will host an

interdisciplinary international conference on the application of advanced

mathematical and computational techniques as they interface with theoretical

chemistry. Invitations will be extended worldwide to mathematicians,

chemists, and physicists as well as to researchers in other related

disciplines.

Topics of the Conference:

1.Extrapolation methods and numerical quadrature. Integral transforms.

2.Extrapolation methods in the context of linear algebra problems.

3.Mathematical contributions to quantum chemistry.

4.Molecular multicenter integral calculations using exponential type

functions.

5.Molecular modeling and high performance computing in chemistry.

6.Computational methods in atomic and molecular physics.

7.The density functional theory of atomic and molecular structure.

8.Mathematics and molecular electronic structure theory.

9.Symbolic programming language for molecular electronic structure

calculations.

10.Treatment of inter-electronic correlation.

11.Explicitly correlated wave functions.

12.Extrapolation of electronic structure calculations to the basis set limit.

13.Quantum similarity measurements and computational medicinal chemistry for

drug discovery.

Highly qualified international and national keynote speakers will shed light

on the impact of mathematics on (theoretical) chemistry and also on the fact

that the treatment of chemical problems can be a valuable source of

inspiration for mathematicians.

It is the primary intention of this conference to present mathematical and

computational techniques that are not yet so very well known, but which

nevertheless will have a considerable impact in the future on the way we

will conduct research in (theoretical) chemistry. The conference will also

serve as a kind of "états généraux" on the state of inter-disciplinary

integration of Mathematics with other disciplines and it should provide

directions for future research programs and collaboration.

Details of abstract submission and registration will be announced soon.

Call for Talks and Minisymposia Proposals

The 18th International Conference on Domain Decomposition Methods

Hebrew University, Jerusalem

January 12-17, 2008

The 18th International Conference on Domain Decomposition Methods will be

held in Jerusalem, Israel, at the Rachel and Selim Benin School of

Computer Science and Engineering of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem,

from Saturday evening January 12 through Thursday afternoon January 17,

2008.

Please see http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/dd18/ for details and registration.

Domain decomposition is an active, interdisciplinary research area

concerned with the development, analysis, and implementation of coupling

and decoupling strategies in mathematical and computational models of

natural and engineered systems. Since the advent of hierarchical

distributed memory computers, it has been motivated afresh by

considerations of concurrency and locality in a wide variety of

large-scale problems, continuous and discrete. The current series of

international meetings began in Paris in 1987 and is on an 18-month cycle.

Meetings have been hosted in Austria, China, France, Germany, Italy,

Japan, Mexico, Norway, Russia, the UK, and the USA.

**Subject: Call for papers, SIAP Special Issue on Fuel Cells**

CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue of SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics (SIAP)

FUEL CELLS: MODELING, ANALYSIS, AND COMPUTATION

Contributed papers are sought for the above Special Issue.

The subject of fuel cells is important, broad, and truly

multidisciplinary. To develop successfully, contributions are needed

from a wide range of scientists and engineers. The goals of the

Special Issue are to display new research on fuel cells involving

applied mathematics, interpreted broadly, and to encourage more

activity by mathematical scientists in the modeling, analysis, and

understanding of fuel cells. With these goals in mind, we are

anticipating that the Special Issue will begin with two review papers.

We are now seeking contributed papers for the Special Issue.

* Every paper will be reviewed according to the standard procedures

for other papers submitted to SIAP. In particular, papers should be

no longer than 20 pages in length. See

http://www.siam.org/journals/siap/policy.php for SIAP's Editorial

Policy.

* Every paper should begin with an attempt to communicate with

mathematical scientists who may not be experts on fuel cells:

formulate a problem, outline how the problem is treated in the

paper, and, if possible, emphasize where difficulties remain and

where applied mathematicians might be able to contribute.

Papers should be submitted by: 1 April 2008

All interested should submit a manuscript and cover letter in PDF

format via SIAP's online submission site, http://siap.siam.org. Please

see Author Instructions on the site if you have not previously

submitted a paper through the web-based system. Note the block labeled

Special Section (just under the Keywords block on your submission

screen) and select "Fuel Cells: Modeling, Analysis, and Computation"

from the dropdown box. Also, be sure to note in the Manuscript Comment

text box (at the bottom of your submission screen) that your paper is

intended for the Special Issue.

The guest editors for the Special Issue are Andrew Herring (Chemical

Engineering) and Paul Martin (Mathematical and Computer Sciences),

both at the Colorado School of Mines. Informal inquiries can be

directed to either of the editors: aherring@mines.edu or

pamartin@mines.edu

Questions about submission or the peer-review process can be sent to

Mitch Chernoff, SIAM Publications Manager, chernoff@siam.org.

open to contributions not necessarly related to papers included in the

proceedings of ISSAC 07.

The guiding principles for the publication procedure will be the following:

* Original research results and insightful analysis of current

concerns are solicited for submission. Submissions must not

duplicate work already published or submitted for publication

elsewhere. Further insights on papers included in the Proceedings of

the ISSAC 2007 Conference are welcome, but the new contributions

should be relevant.

The paper should explain in its introduction, what the problem is,

its importance, the contribution of the paper, how it is related to

the existing literature, and what are the significant

improvements/enhancement compared to the related ISSAC 2007 paper,

if it exists.

* All the papers will be refereed according to the JSC standards.

* Papers should be submitted to http://www.easychair.org/jsc-issac07/
