**Subject: Professor L. M. Delves**

Professor L. M. Delves succumbed to prostate cancer on February 13, 2011.

After obtaining his doctorate from Oxford University, Mike worked in variou=

s

establishments in the USA and England in the 1960s, before being appointed =

in

1970 as Professor of Numerical Analysis at Liverpool University. He wrote

many papers, edited and wrote books, organised conferences, supervised

several Ph.D. students, contributed to NAG, founded a software consulting

company, and ultimately retired from Liverpool University. While visiting =

us

at the University of Victoria he once played in goal at a Computer Science

Faculty vs. Student soccer match while wearing a suit and tie; an attire th=

at

he also adopted for our one game of golf together. Those of us who knew Mi=

ke

well will miss his humanity and his droll sense of humour. He is survived =

by

his wife Wyn, and children James, Catherine and Edward.

**Subject: Prof. Dr. Jan G. Verwer (1946-2011)**

Jan Verwer passed away unexpectedly on 16 February 2011, at his home in

Heiloo, the Netherlands.

Jan Verwer had retired on 31 January, after a 37 year career as a highly

successful mathematician and research leader at CWI =96 the Centrum

Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam. Jan started his CWI career as a

teaching assistant and ended it as a CWI Fellow. He also held the chair

Numerical Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of

Amsterdam. On the occasion of his retirement, he was named Knight in the

Order of the Netherlands Lion.

Jan Verwer made impressive contributions to the numerical analysis of

ordinary and time-dependent partial differential equations. He was an

internationally leading mathematics researcher, the author of two books

and numerous highly cited articles. He guided and inspired many young

researchers in the Netherlands and abroad.

For many years he was the leader of the CWI research cluster Modelling,

Analysis and Simulation, leader of the national BRICKS research project,

and chairman of the Dutch-Flemish Research Community on Scientific

Computing. During his entire career, Jan Verwer served the Netherlands

as a true ambassador to the international scientific community.

We will remember Jan as a highly dedicated, modest and honest person,

enjoyed and respected by his colleagues. Our thoughts and feelings are

with his wife, three children and grandchild.

**Subject: Xtreme(ly rapid) dense linear algebra library development**

As part of the FLAME project, we have developed a number of tools for rapid

and robust linear algebra library development, yielding high-performance

implementations for sequential, multicore, multiGPU, and cluster computing.

As we recently developed an algorithm for computing inv(L) A inv(L)' (an

operation that is encountered when solving the generalized Hermitian

eigenvalue problem) I captured one of the first stages towards implementing

this operation as a video. In this video, I show how algorithms are very

rapidly turned into M-script (Matlab/Octave) implementations.

This video may be of interest to the community since it has not only value

for experts interested in developing dense matrix algorithms, but also has

pedagogical value (I have used the tools it demonstrates in undergraduate a=

nd

graduate courses).

It can be found at http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/flame/Extras/FLAWN56/. I=

t

takes about 25 minutes to go from no implementation at all to multiple

blocked implementations which were later easily translated to C and added t=

o

the libflame library (a modern replacement for LAPACK) and the Elemental

library (a modern replacement for ScaLAPACK).

**Subject: Release of OpenMP 3.1 for public review**

The OpenMP ARB is pleased to announce the release of a draft of the OpenMP

specification, version 3.1 for comment by the community. Please see:

http://www.openmp.org/mp-documents/omp3.1-2011.0203a.pdf

This draft will serve as the basis of an official 3.1 update of the

specification, which is expected to be ratified in time for IWOMP 2011 in

Chicago. All interested users and implementers are invited to review the

comment draft and to provide feedback through the Draft 3.1 Public Comment

section of the OpenMP Forum available at:

http://openmp.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=3D9

The 3.1 version is intended as a minor release that will not break existing=

,

correct OpenMP applications. However, it does include several new features,

most notably the addition of predefined min and max operators for C and C++

and extensions to the atomic construct that allow the value of the shared

variable that the construct updates to be captured or to be written without

being read. It also includes extensions to the OpenMP tasking model that

support optimization of its use.

"The release of this comment draft represents the culmination of significan=

t

effort on the part the OpenMP Language Committee," stated Language Committe=

e

Chair Bronis R. de Supinski. "We have added extensions that handle some of

the most frequent user requests while also working to make the specificatio=

n

and its associated examples clearer. We anticipate making other minor chang=

es

to the draft as a result not only due to public comment but also to provide

additional examples that will clarify the use of new features. We plan to

make updates to the comment draft that capture these enhancements available

during the comment period, which closes Monday, May 1, 2011."

Saddlers=92 Hall, Gutter Lane, London

The IMA is holding a major one day conference on mathematics and its

applications for the present day on 24 March 2011 at Saddlers' Hall, Gutter

Lane, London. The aim of the conference is to bring together people with a=

n

interest in mathematics and its applications to consider current issues in

the subject. The conference topics will cover research topics in mathematic=

s;

public understanding of mathematics and industrial applications of

mathematics. These topics will be of interest to both mathematicians and

those working with mathematicians as the presentations will address the

impact of the work rather than emphasise its technical nature. The conferen=

ce

will give an opportunity for informal discussion between people who are

interested in a variety of areas in mathematics.

This conference is the next in the series following successful conferences

held in Manchester in 2005 and London in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

**Subject: Master projects in sci comp at Research Center Juelich**

Members of the IBG-1 modeling and simulation group at the Research Center

Juelich are currently implementing a fast and accurate simulator for the

General Rate Model (GRM) of column liquid chromatography [1]. A coupled set

of partial and ordinary differential-algebraic equations is discretized in

space and time using finite volumes and a BDF scheme. Sensitivities are

computed with arbitrary precision by solving symbolic and algorithmic

parameter derivatives of the original system. Our code is parallelized for

shared memory architectures, and combined with an optimization framework fo=

r

solving various inverse problems.

We want to extend several aspects of our solver for simulating more general

chromatography models and for evaluating alternative numerical techniques.

For these tasks we seek Master or Diploma candidates with sound knowledge a=

nd

experience in both numerical partial differential equations and scientific

programming. We provide the opportunity to work in a highly motivated and

interdisciplinary team, and to apply state of the art computational

engineering for the solution of relevant problems in the field of separatio=

n

science. Knowledge of the application field in not a prerequisite and can b=

e

acquired on the job.
