Subject: Standard Test Problems for Comparing ODE Solvers

I need to test a new numerical integration method for the solution of initial
value problems of ordinary differential equations. For numerical examples, I
would like to use a set of non-stiff standard IVPs published in the literature
and used by other authors. The only such set I have found is [1], which is
rather old.

[1] Enright, W. H., and J. D. Pryce, “Two FORTRAN packages for assessing
initial value methods”, ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software, 13(1): 1--
27, 1987.

If you know of a more recent set, I would appreciate it if you would direct me
to it.

Thank you,
Artin Farahani

2009 Babuska Prize awarded

In December 2009, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the Union
of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the I. Babuska
Prize for the best work in scientific computing submitted by students
and young scientists. The Prize winner for 2009 is Dr Jakub Sistek
from the Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the
Czech Republic in Prague. The work honored is his PhD thesis The
finite element method in fluids: stabilization and domain decomposition.

Further winners were delivered diplomas of honor. The second position
was awarded to Dr Vojtech Minarik from the Faculty of Nuclear
Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University
in Prague for his PhD thesis Mathematical model of discrete
dislocation dynamics. The third position was shared by Dr Jan Elias
from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Brno University of
Technology who presented his PhD thesis Discrete simulation of
fracture processes in disordered materials and Dr Jiri Hozman from
the Faculty of Science, Humanities and Education of the Technical
University of Liberec who submitted his PhD thesis Discontinuous
Galerkin method for convection-diffusion problems.

Further diplomas of honor were delivered to MS theses. The first
position in this category was taken by Martina Valtrova from the
Faculty of Environmental Science of the Czech University of Life
Sciences in Prague for her thesis Computation aspects of kriging in
chosen engineering problems. The second position was awarded to Milan
Hanus (Faculty of Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia
in Pilsen) for his thesis Numerical modeling of neutron transport.

The Prize had its sixteenth winners in 2009. It was established in
1994 by an outstanding Czech mathematician Ivo Babuska. He works in
the United States. Since 1995 he is at the Institute for
Computational Engineering and Sciences, University of Texas, Austin,
TX. His results in the finite element method belong to its basics.

Subject: Call for Proposals: Understanding the "Omics" for Biological Threats

NSF 10-006

Dear Colleague Letter:
Mathematical and Statistical Research for understanding the “Omics” (genomics,
proteomics, transcriptomics, etc.) of biological threats.

Dear Colleague,

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at the National Science Foundation
(NSF) has a long history of supporting scientific research to develop
technology to secure the national defense. We have formed a partnership with
the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to develop the next generation of
mathematical and statistical algorithms for the detection of chemical and
biological threats. In FY2009, DMS issued a Dear Colleague Letter, NSF09010,
still in effect, that defined an Area of Emphasis within the Computational
Mathematics program. This Dear Colleague letter describes an additional new
Area of Emphasis for FY 2010.

The introduction of the next generation of massively parallel sequencing
technologies led to an exponential increase in the amount of available DNA
sequence information for biological threats. As sequence data is now produced
faster than it can be meaningfully analyzed, new approaches to the analysis of
this information is one of the most important recent challenges for the
mathematical sciences. New and improved mathematical and statistical methods
and high performance algorithms are needed to clear this bottleneck. Beyond
methods to sample and organize the sheer amount of data in a meaningful way,
challenges include development of quantitative methods and models to estimate
errors for the various sequencing platforms; algorithms and mathematical
estimates of the reliability of genomes assembled from short gapped reads;
approaches to distinguish sequence-determination errors from biological
polymorphism and mutation; and means to distinguish among multiple genomes
within a single dataset, particularly when those different genomes are
represented at vastly different abundance.

Challenges especially relevant to the area of bio-detection include the
development of tools and models for fast identification of the differences
between the genomes of individuals of a species, and for distinguishing
between naturally-occurring biological heterogeneity and newly-emerged or
artificially produced pathogenic sequences in complex samples. Mathematical
models and methods to estimate the significance of genomic variability as
related to the corresponding phenotypic variability belong to this area of
research as well.

Approaches originating from all areas of the mathematical sciences are welcome
including but not limited to probability theory and statistics, computational
mathematics, applied mathematics, algebraic geometry and topology.

The purpose of this letter is to make the mathematical sciences community
aware of this opportunity and to encourage the community to formulate ideas
and collaborations, and to assemble diverse groups of mathematical sciences
researchers who are actively working in these areas.

DMS and DTRA recognize the needs and opportunities for the mathematical
sciences community to develop technology for controlling and reducing the
threat from biological and chemical attack. We seek ambitious, transformative,
and creative research proposals from individual PIs and collaborative groups
in the mathematical sciences community. While experimental collaborations may
serve an appropriate supporting role for a project, proposals submitted should
primarily emphasize mathematical, statistical and algorithmic development
rather than experimental design. Proposals should include "ATD:"(Algorithms
for Threat Detection) at the start of the title and should be submitted to the
Mathematical Biology program of DMS
within the submission window from December 18, 2009 to January 13, 2010.

Insight Through Computing: A MATLAB Introduction to Computational Science
and Engineering
by Charles F. Van Loan and K.-Y. Daisy Fan

December 2009 / xviii + 434 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-0-898716-91-7 /
List Price $59.00 / SIAM Member Price $41.30 / Order Code OT117

This introduction to computer-based problem-solving using the MATLAB®
environment is highly recommended for students wishing to learn the concepts
and develop the programming skills that are fundamental to computational
science and engineering. Through a “teaching by examples” approach, the
authors pose strategically chosen problems to help first-time programmers
learn these necessary concepts and skills.

Each section formulates a problem and then introduces those new MATLAB®
language features that are necessary to solve it. The interplay between
programming and mathematics throughout the text reinforces the student’s
ability to reason numerically and geometrically.

Undergraduate students whose mathematical maturity is at the level of
Calculus I will find this book extremely useful, especially as preparation
for further courses in computing and mathematics. It can also be used as a
MATLAB reference at any level.

Price $59.00 / SIAM Member Price $41.30 / OT118

This is the first comprehensive treatment of probabilistic Boolean networks,
an important model class for studying genetic regulatory networks. This book
covers basic model properties, including the relationships between network
structure and dynamics, steady-state analysis, and relationships to other
model classes. It also discusses the inference of model parameters from
experimental data and control strategies for driving network behavior
towards desirable states.

The authors attempt to unify different strands of current research and
address emerging issues such as constrained control, greedy control, and
