Subject: Richard A. Harshman

Richard A. Harshman (University of Western Ontario) passed away on
Thursday January 10 as the result of heart failure. He was the father of
parallel factor analysis, one of the most important techniques for
multi-way analysis. He was also co-author of the paper in which latent
semantic indexing was introduced. His recent work included multi-way
generalizations of the general linear model in statistics. The multi-way
community has lost one of its founding fathers and one of its finest and
most eminent members. We will all miss him.

The funeral will be on Friday Jan 18. Condolences may be sent directly
to his wife, Elizabeth Hampson, at

Subject: New software tool: Sollya 1.0


For about one year we have been developing a free software tool called Sollya:

The interface of the tool is an interactive shell with an extended scripting

Currently, Sollya is intended to be a general tool supporting the synthesis of
numerical codes. Nevertheless it provides several functionalities of general
use. Amongst other things, Sollya provides a (multiprecision) infinite norm
algorithm for univariate functions. It can compute the best polynomial
approximation of a function. It can also generate certified C code for
evaluating such an approximation polynomial with a given accuracy.

As far as we know, some functionalities in numeric computations were only
available in proprietary software such as Maple or Matlab. The purpose of
Sollya has first been to overcome these dependencies while providing faster
and more accurate results. We invite all of you who could have similar needs
to try out Sollya. Please, send us your remarks and indicate your additional
needs. New developers are welcome, too.

Subject: New book, Multiscale Methods: Averaging and Homogenization

New From Springer

Multiscale Methods
Averaging and Homogenization

G. A. Pavliotis, Imperial College London, London, England
A. M. Stuart, University of Warwick, London, England

Appropriate for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers, this
introduction to multiscale methods gives readers a broad overview of
the uses and applications of the methods. The book begins by setting
the theoretical foundations of the subject area, and moves on to
develop a unified approach to the simplification of a wide range of
problems which possess multiple scales, via perturbation expansions;
differential equations and stochastic processes are studied in one
unified framework. The book concludes with an overview of a range of
theoretical tools used to justify the simplified models derived via
the perturbation expansions.

Subject: Announcing Course on DUNE Framework, Mar 2008

DUNE Course March 13-14, 2008
IPVS, University Stuttgart, Germany

In many areas of science and engineering numerical simulation is an
important tool for research and development. Current simulation
trends range from multiscale-/multiphysics modelling to the usage of
parallel machines with PetaFlops performance. The Distributed and
Unified Numerics Environment (DUNE) (
framework tries to fit these heterogeneous requirements inside a
single environment with novel numerical techniques as well as
state-of-the-art software development methods.

By participating in this course scientists have the opportunity to get
a hands-on introduction to the DUNE framework. Main focus is to give a
detailed introduction to the DUNE core modules: the grid interface
including IO methods with its numerous grid implementations and the
iterative solver module ISTL. In the exercises a hyperbolic sample
problem will be implemented (convection equation using
Discontinuous-Galerkin discretisations with constant and linear shape

Subject: Grid and Scientific and Engineering Applications, Jun 2008

Workshop on Grid and Scientific and Engineering Applications (Grid&SEA)

will be held in conjunction with the

34th International Conference on Applications of Mathematics in
Engineering and Economics
June 8-14, 2008, Sozopol, Bulgaria.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together Grid researchers to discuss
current state of the Grid and most pressing research issues. Workshop
will consist of presentations of contributed papers as well as a panel
discussion. We believe that meeting in a relaxed atmosphere of a Black
Sea resort can be very constructive and thought provoking. Therefore we
would like to invite researchers in the Grid area to contribute papers
covering all and any aspect of Grid computing. Post conference
Proceedings will be published by the American Institute of Physics.
Extended versions of selected papers will be invited to a Special Issue
of the Scalable Computing, Practice and Experience ( journal.

Extended abstracts (one page; with exception of figures, which may
result in a 2-page submission) should be sent to the Workshop organizers
till March 15, 2008. Notification for accepted presentations based on
the abstracts will be given till March 30, 2008.

Subject: Pos. Univ. of Antwerp: High-prec. reliable special function evaluation

The research group Computer Arithmetic and Numerical Techniques
(University of Antwerp, Belgium) is currently hiring starting
researchers (we offer two times 2 years towards the completion of a
doctoral thesis) or experienced researchers (we offer at most 4 times
one year postdoctoral work) with interest in numerical analysis.

Research topic: High-precision reliable special function evaluation

Special functions are well-known to be of importance in all branches
of science, for the solution of equations and the computation of
certain quantities. A lot of theoretical information about special
functions can be found in the world-famous handbook of Abramowitz and
Stegun and in the near future also in its electronic successor DLMF or
Digital Library of Mathematical Functions developed at NIST (USA). In
addition to theoretical information, the authoritative survey paper of
Daniel Lozier and Frank Olver lists the known implementations of
special functions, either in commercial or freely available software.

While there exist several excellent libraries implementing
high-precision computations, it is essential to realize that these
libraries implement only the basic operations and elementary functions
in high-precision. Very little support exists for the high-precision,
reliable evaluation of special functions. Up to this date, even
environments such as Maple, Mathematica, MATLAB and libraries such as
IMSL, CERN and NAG offer no routines for the reliable evaluation of
special functions.
