**Subject: Looking for ill conditioned sparse matrices**

We are interested in very ill conditioned sparse

matrices A (condition number of A is k(A) = O(1/eps), where eps

is double precision machine precision) for which it is necessary

to solve the corresponding linear system

Ax = b

with some reasonable accuracy.

The matrices can be either symmetric or unsymmetric.

If you have any such problems, we would be really grateful if you

could supply us with the data in a standard sparse matrix format

(Rutherford Boeing or coordinate format or as a Matlab file).

A brief description of the field where the matrix comes from

would be useful and, if possible, please provide an example of a

right-hand side b.

**Subject: Workshop on Numerics in Dynamical Systems, Helsinki, Apr 2009**

Call for participation

Workshop on Numerics in Dynamical Systems

TKK Helsinki, April 23-25, 2009

The workshop will be part of the Numerical Analysis visitor program of

Finnish Mathematical Society for 2008-2009. It will concentrate on

dynamical systems and their numerical treatment using the interactive

play of analysis and numerics. Much attention will be paid on

qualitative analysis of dynamical systems using numerical methods. The

objects will include invariant sets, SRB-measures, bifurcation

phenomena, and Lyapunov exponents. The main topics of the workshop will

include preservation of important qualitative properties of systems in

their numerical time propagation. And even more generally: how to employ

efficiently in the numerical computations the available a priori

information of the system and a posteriori use: the aim of the

computation. For efficiency, the methods based on exponential

integrators and other types of lower dimensional local approximations

will get special interest.

Webpage: http://math.tkk.fi/numericsyear/numdyn/

There will be invited talks, shorter (20 min) talks, and a poster session.

For participating the workshop, please send email by Dec 31 2008 to:

numdyn09@math.tkk.fi

If you like to give a talk or present a poster, please include an

abstract. Answers will be sent soon after receiving the mail, latest Jan

15, 2009. We encourage especially young researchers to come.

Before and after the workshop there will be minicourses given by some

invited speakers.

**Subject: New journal: MathematicS In Action**

The SMAI (french society for applied and industrial mathematics, see

http://smai.emath.fr/?lang=en ) has recently launched a new journal:

MathematicS In Action (MSIA).

The objective of MSIA, published with the help of the CEDRAM (center for

diffusion of academic mathematical journals), is to promote the interactions

between Mathematics and other sciences by publishing papers at

their interfaces written by at least two authors: a mathematician

and a specialist in another scientific community (biology, medicine,

economy, computer science, physics, chemistry, mechanics, environnemental

sciences, engineering sciences, etc.).

The papers deal with modelling, analysis and validation of models, numerical

methods and/or experimental methods. They must comprise a mathematical part

and either numerical or experimental results. They also must be useful and

globally accessible to their authors' scientific communities.

The refereeing process for a submitted paper involves a mathematician and a

specialist in the other concerned domain. To be accepted, a paper must be of

the highest scientific quality, original, and strongly interdisciplinary.

The Journal is an electronic publication and all articles are freely

available. However, each year a printed version is sent to a selection of

libraries.

**Subject: Inverse Problems 2008 Newsletter**

Inverse Problems has enjoyed many exciting developments recently, including

the publication of Special Sections, Topical Reviews and the 2007 Editorial

Board Highlights, as well as achieving an impressive increase in impact

factor. We also have some interesting plans to look forward to, including

the increase to monthly publication in 2009 which coincides with the

journal's 25th year of publication!
