**Subject: A poetic apology in pathetic apogee**

I tried to come up with a mathematical poem to liven up this

week's NA Digest, but sadly was unable to do so. The math

just didn't work out. Please accept my humble apology:

I'm not a poet laureate,

just a poet overrate.

True poets speak in words that flow ;

all I get is underflow.

True poets write with elegance,

my poetic math gives Inf's.

True literature inspires Man,

my poem over zero's NaN.

This poem's float' IEEE,

critics all cry out "Ai-Eee!"

COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

A new text and reference book by Gilbert Strang, gs@math.mit.edu

Published by Wellesley-Cambridge Press and also available from SIAM

ISBN 0961408812 (700 pages) October 2007 www.wellesleycambridge.com

Detailed contents on http://math.mit.edu/cse. Two sections in full:

1.1 Four Special Matrices and 4.1 Fourier Series are on those sites

This is the new textbook for MIT's courses 18.085-6 on Computational

Science and Engineering. The book integrates analysis and algorithms

and codes, to explain each topic as effectively as possible -- it is

"solution-based" instead of "formula-based". This is how we learn.

CSE is a big subject and this book offers more than a single course.

The book is also a reference for the whole community of computational

scientists and engineers. Please look at the contents, and the book.

Elasticity with Mathematica

Andrei Constantinescu

CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau

Alexander Korsunsky

University of Oxford

http://www.cambridge.org/9780521842013

This book introduces to the key ideas and principles in the theory of

elasticity with the help of symbolic computation. Differential and

integral operators on vector and tensor fields of displacements, strains

and stresses are considered on a consistent and rigorous basis with

respect to curvilinear orthogonal coordinate systems. As a consequence,

vector and tensor objects can be manipulated readily, and fundamental

concepts can be illustrated and problems solved with ease. The method is

illustrated using a variety of plane and three-dimensional elastic

problems. General theorems, fundamental solutions, displacements and

stress potentials are presented and discussed. The Rayleigh-Ritz method

for obtaining approximate solutions is introduced for elastostatic and

spectral analysis problems. The book contains more than 60 exercises and

solutions in the form of Mathematica notebooks that accompany every

chapter. Once the reader learns and masters the techniques, they can be

applied to a large range of practical and fundamental problems.

**Subject: "UNEASY RELATIONS" - the poetry of computational mathematics**

"UNEASY RELATIONS" - the poetry of computational mathematics

Uneasy Relations is a short collection of poems by Mike Bartholomew-Biggs

of the University of Hertfordshire. The poems play with ideas from

numerical analysis - but non-specialists may choose to murmur them as

zen-like meditations. The poems do not confine themselves narrowly to

mathematical themes, however, but touch upon myth and fable, astronomy, the

arts of prediction and preventive maintenance, entomology, hill-walking,

financial portfolio theory and the works of Edgar Allan Poe. There is also

a hint of sexual politics.

EQUALITY CONSTRAINTS

To walk a tightrope

is hard. So how much harder

to walk several?

Spiders manage it

spinning sticky contour plots

which arent safety nets.

Uneasy Relations can be ordered at £3 (plus 50p p&p) from: Hearing Eye, Box

A post-doctoral associate position in computational molecular

biophysics is available at Purdue University starting January

1st, 2008, though a later start date is possible. The position

requires a PhD degree in science or engineering and experience

and skills in computational science (preferably with some exposure

to molecular simulation).

The candidate is expected to contribute to a project on finding

transition paths of conformational change and binding and

calculating free energies of binding. They will work with Robert

Skeel, Computer Science (and Mathematics), in collaboration with

Carol Post, Medicinal Chemistry (and Biology).

More specifically, the work will involve one or two of the following

problems: devise a robust and efficient method for converging to a

generalized minimum free energy path, investigate automated selection

of collective variables, and develop practical methods for

calculating binding free energies. Emphasis is on techniques that

are practical for larger molecules (and are easy to parallelize).

The position is for two years, beginning January 2008, with the

opportunity for extension up to the end of 2011. The salary is

according to German TV-L group 13.

The main task is data assimilation/parameter optimization in nonlinear

geobiochemichal models for the ocean. Aim is to study the C02 uptake

of the ocean. These models are nonlinear transport equations that are

coupled to global ocean circulation models (Navier-Stokes equations).

For this purpose, either mathematical techniques of optimal control of

PDEs or more algorithmic-oriented approaches as Automatic

Differentiation of computer programs shall be applied. The successful

candidate owns a PhD in a discipline relevant to the project and has

experience in at least one of the following areas:

- Optimal control of PDEs

- Nonlinear optimization

- Data assimilation/Parameter optimization

- Algorithmic/Automatic Differentiation

- Simulation of geobiochemical processes or ocean circulation
