Subject: HPL 2.0 has been released

We are pleased to announce the long awaited version 2.0 of High Performance
Linpack (HPL). It's been nearly 4 years since the last stable release and
the code has served the community well. The most prominent result were
the numerous entries in the TOP500 and Linpack Benchmark Report
number of suggestions since 2004. They resulted in major changes and
accuracy enhancements. The major focus of this release was to improve
the code but also keep the continuity of new runs with the existing
results. The new release does not produce results that are bit-wise
identical with the old results due to complete overhaul of the random
number generator. The numerical properties of the results as well as
runtime behavior is completely compatible with the historical data with
the added bonus of having the new generator scale on the largest
supercomputer installations with hundreds of thousands of computational
cores. Another set of issues reported by the users was related to
parallel machines with large main memory. These issues were also
addressed by the fixes that went into this release. Finally, an
important change was made to the way that accuracy is reported. The
formula that verifies the correctness of the run has been simplified and
brought in line with state of the art for numerical analysis of Gaussian
elimination with partial pivoting. The code of the new release is
available at http://www.netlib.org/benchmark/hpl/ under the original BSD

Subject: SuiteSparseQR: sparse multifrontal QR factorization package

I would like announce the release of a new multithreaded
multifrontal sparse QR factorization package, SuiteSparseQR.
Parallelism is exploited both in the BLAS and across different
frontal matrices using Intel's Threading Building Blocks, a
shared-memory programming model for modern multicore architectures.
SuiteSparseQR can obtain a substantial fraction of the theoretical
peak performance of a multicore computer. The package is written
in C++ with user interfaces for MATLAB, C, and C++.

Its MATLAB interface is upward-compatible with the qr function
in MATLAB and x=A\b when A is rectangular. It can also handle
complex matrices, and it can return Q as a concise set of sparse
Householder vectors in a MATLAB struct (nnz(Q) can very high for
Q as a matrix; by contrast, nnz(Q.H) is often less than nnz(R)).

Subject: New Book, Fluid Simulation for Computer Graphics

New Book: Fluid Simulation for Computer Graphics
ISBN 978-1-56881-326-4, A K Peters
Robert Bridson; September 2008; 246 pp.; Hardcover; $59.00 Animating fluids like water, smoke, and fire using physics-based simulation is increasingly important in visual effects, in particular in movies, like The Day After Tomorrow, and in computer games. This book provides a practical introduction to fluid simulation for graphics. The focus is on animating fully three-dimensional incompressible flow, from understanding the math and the algorithms to the actual implementation. "For a practitioner in this field, it provides everything needed: a good foundation in the theory of finite difference fluid simulation, practical working advice on how to deal with the mathematics of simulation, and clear explanations of advanced techniques (like solid/fluid coupling). All of this and it's very well written and a pleasure to read." -Doug Roble, Creative Director of Software, Digital Domain "This book pulls together the essence of fluid simulation into a single volume, presenting it in a fashion that is both useful to researchers and accessible to implementers. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in fluid simulation for computer graphics." -Ron Fedkiw, Stanford Table of Contents: http://www.akpeters.com/previews/bridson_toc.pdf Preface: http://www.akpeters.com/previews/bridson_Preface.pdf Author's website: http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~rbridson/fluidbook/ <http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~rbridson/fluidbook/> More Info: http://www.akpeters.com/product.asp?ProdCode=3260 ------------------------------------------------------- From: "Petter Kolm" <kolm@cims.nyu.edu> Date: Fri, 26 Sep 2008 07:58:21 -0400 Subject: Conference on Algorithmic Trading, New York, Oct 2008 ALGORITHMIC TRADING: Dynamic Portfolios, Optimal Execution, and Risk, New York, October 3, 2008 Program Highlights: - Dynamic optimization in custom execution algorithms - The use of adaptive arrival price optimization - The role of short term alpha in optimizing execution - Execution risks and its relationship to portfolio risk - Buy-side institutional efforts to integrate portfolio construction, risk management and optimal execution Confirmed speakers: Robert ALMGREN, Quantitative Brokers David CUSHING, Wellington Management Ian DOMOWITZ, ITG Robert ENGLE, NYU Stern, Nobel Prize winner Robert FERSTENBERG, Morgan Stanley Jim GATHERAL, Merrill Lynch Merrell HORA, Credit Suisse George SOFIANOS, Goldman Sachs Organizing committee: Petter KOLM, Courant Institute, NYU Lee MACLIN, Courant Institute, NYU & Pragma Financial Systems For more information and registration please see http://www.algotradeconf.com or by email at info@algotradeconf.com Download brochure: http://www.algotradeconf.com/AlgorithmicTrading.pdf ------------------------------------------------------- From: "Neville Ford" <n.ford@chester.ac.uk> Date: Fri, 26 Sep 2008 19:40:54 +0100 Subject: Stochastic Delay Differential Equations, Chester, UK, Nov 2008 Workshop: Numerical and analytical solution of stochastic delay differential equations, 3rd - 7th November 2008 (supported by the Leverhulme Trust) Location: Department of Mathematics University of Chester Parkgate Road Chester CH1 4BJ, UK Feature speakers: Christopher T H Baker - University of Chester & University of Manchester, UK.
