**Subject: Leonard Berkovitz**

Len Berkovitz died suddenly but peacefully on October 13, 2009. Len

served as professor in the Mathematics Department at Purdue University

from 1962 until his retirement in 2002.

While at the Rand Corporation in the 1950s Len consulted for the Air

Force, where he helped introduce the novel idea (now common practice) of

using simulation methods for determining the outcome of tactical

engagements. He served as associate editor, editor, and managing editor

for the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization. Eleven students

received Ph.D. degrees under his supervision.

Forthcoming / Nov. 2009 / Approx. 304 pp. / 40 illus. / Hardcover / $49.95 /

ISBN: 978-0-8176-4890-9 / Birkhäuser

Series - Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis

This state-of-the-art textbook covers four research directions in harmonic

analysis and presents some of its latest applications. It is the first work

that combines spline theory, wavelets, frames, and time-frequency methods up

to construction on manifolds other then Rn.

Written by internationally renowned mathematicians, the interdisciplinary

chapters have expository character, allowing the reader to understand the

theory behind modern image and signal processing methodologies. The main

emphasis is on the interdependence of the four modern research directions.

Each chapter ends with exercises that allow for a more in-depth understanding

of the material and are intended to stimulate the reader toward further

research. A comprehensive index completes the work. Topics covered include

frames and bases in mathematics and engineering, wavelets with composite

dilations and their applications, wavelets on the sphere and their

applications, Wiener's Lemma: theme and variations.

"Four Short Courses in Harmonic Analysis" is intended as a graduate-level

textbook for a course in harmonic analysis. It is also an excellent reference

guide for researchers and practitioners with diverse mathematical backgrounds,

including theoretical and applied mathematics, image and signal processing

engineering, and communication theory.

**Subject: PhD position, University of Amsterdam**

The Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics of the University of

Amsterdam has an opening for a PhD student in Mathematics.

Project: Adaptive wavelet methods for operator equations: Tensor

product approximations. The project is funded by the Netherlands

Organisation for Scientific Research. The research will be carried

out in collaboration with the research groups of the professors

Schwab (ETH, Zürich) and Dahlke (Universität Marburg).

The subject of this project is the development of adaptive wavelet

algorithms for solving time-dependent partial differential equations

(PDE's). With standard time marching schemes, an optimal

distributions of the grid points over space and time is generally

hard or even impossible to realize. Recently, an adaptive wavelet

method was proposed that applies to a simultaneously space-time

variational formulation of the PDE. Whereas keeping discrete

solutions on all time levels is prohibitive for time marching

methods, thanks to the use of tensorized multi-level bases the method

produces approximations simultaneously in space and time without

penalty in complexity because of the additional time dimension.

Meanwhile, for a simple model problem encouraging first practical

results have been obtained. The aims of the project are to extend the

approach to nonlinear problems and to the use of piecewise tensor

product approximation in order to be able to handle non-trivial

geometries. Depending on the background and the interests of the

student, the main focus can be either on tackling the many open

theoretical problems in the areas of approximation theory,

(functional) analysis and PDE's, or on the construction of an

efficient implementation of the algorithm.

Requirements: Candidates should have a Master's degree in mathematics

with specialism either numerical analysis, (functional) analysis or

partial differential equations.

**Subject: PhD Position: Mathematical Biology, Michigan State University**

Department of Mathematics at Michigan State University invites

outstanding students for PhD degrees in Molecular Based Mathematical

Biology.

A major feature of 21st-century's biological science is its transition

from phenomenological and descriptive science to quantitative science.

Revolutionary opportunities have emerged for mathematically driven

advances in biological and life sciences. Currently, almost all funded

research in experimental biology is based on molecular level understandings.

However, most research work in mathematical biology nowadays is not

based on molecular level understandings. We envision a dramatic and

historic transition from the traditional mathematical biology to molecular

based mathematical biology in the next decade.

The department of Mathematics at Michigan State University has ongoing

research projects that span a wide spectrum of topics in new emerging

areas in molecular based mathematical biology. Our mathematical biology

research activities concern biological frontiers, including ion channels,

biomolecular solvation, protein folding, protein-protein interaction,

protein-DNA binding, signal transduction, gene regulation, molecular

motors, ATP synthase motors, drug design and discovery, etc. We make

use of a wide range of mathematical theories, methods and techniques,

such as differential geometry, partial differential equations, topology, linear

algebra, functional analysis, etc. We are interested in developing new

mathematical models, theoretical approaches, analytical algorithms, and

computational methods for problems in the general context of molecular

based biology.

We are seeking outstanding students who are interested in working at

the interface of mathematics and molecular biology. Our goal is to train

next generation researchers in molecular based mathematical biology.

Ideal students should possess MSc or BS degrees in mathematics or

other disciplines that have a strong background in mathematics. Most

importantly, an ideal student should have a strong desire to engage

in interdisciplinary research in molecular based mathematical biology.

Interested students should contact Prof. Guowei Wei via e-mail
