**Subject: Miki Neumann, 1946-2011**

Michael ("Miki") Neumann, head of the math department at the

University of Connecticut Storrs, died suddenly on April 21, 2011 at

the age of 64. Miki was internationally known for his research in

numerical linear algebra and matrix theory. He published more than

150 papers in this field, as well as a book, "Introduction to Local

Spectral Theory" with Kjeld Laursen. At the time of his death, he was

working on another book.

Miki Neumann was the Stuart and Joan Sidney Professor of Mathematics

and Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at UConn,

as well as a member of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and

Sciences. He was a generous and kind man, who was supportive of

younger colleagues and devoted to his students. He is deeply missed

by all of us who were touched by his wisdom, kindness and humor.

Miki is survived by his wife Helen Neumann; his son, Joseph

M. Neumann, and his wife Rachel; his daughter, Rachel M. Neumann, and

her husband Kuba Glazek; and a sister Orna Neumann.

Steven A. Orszag, the Percey F. Smith Professor of Mathematics at

Yale, died Sunday, May 1, 2011, at the age of 68. Steve was an

internationally recognized leader in the field of computational fluid

dynamics, and a pioneer in the field of spectral methods. His books

"Numerical Analysis of Spectral Methods: Theory and Applications" with

David Gottlieb (SIAM 1977), and "Advanced Mathematical Methods for

Scientists and Engineers" with Carl Bender (Springer 1978) have been

widely used and cited by mathematicians and engineers.

Steve was awarded the American Institute of Aeronautics and

Astronautics Fluids and Plasmadynamics Prize in 1986. He was a John

Simon Guggenheim Fellow in 1989, and won the Otto Laporte Award of the

American Physical Society in 1991 and the G. I. Taylor Medal of the

Society of Engineering Science in 1995, and was a member of the

Institute for Advanced Study. His contributions to the fields of fluid

dynamics, computational fluids, and high performance computing will be

appreciated by many generations to come.

Steve is survived by his wife Reba, his sons Michael, Jonathan, and

Peter, grandchildren Leila and Joshua, and his sister Myrna Baron.

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Danny Dunlavy as the new

editor of the NA Digest. Danny is a principal member of the technical

staff at Sandia National Labs with research interests in numerical

linear and multilinear algebra and optimization with applications to

areas such as informatics and machine learning. Danny has been engaged

with the NA Digest for more than five years as an occasional editor,

and he has graciously agreed to become the regular editor.

Of course, the NA Digest would not exist without the support of the

Jack Dongarra's Innovative Computing Laboratory (especially Don Fike

and Paul Peltz) at the University of Tennessee. The contributions of

Jack's group has been an integral part of the NA Digest for more than

two decades, providing the infrastructure for more than 8000

subscribers.

Thanks to all of you for your words of support through the years and,

more importantly, your many submissions.

Sincerely,

**Subject: First release, reduced basis software package RBmatlab**

RBmatlab is a MATLAB=AE library providing routines for the solution and

model order reduction of parametrized partial differential equations.

It is developed by the reduced basis groups of the Universities of

Stuttgart and M=FCnster, Germany.

The software focusses on evolution equations with finite element or

finite volume discretizations and provides a reduced basis framework

for reducing the model order of the numerical schemes. This includes

- basis generation with POD-Greedy algorithms

- reduced simulations

- efficient a posteriori error estimation and

- empirical operator interpolation

A tarball of the first release is now available for download under

http://morepas.org/software/index.html

The main features of the library can be best explored by running the

scripts from the 'demo' directory.

Best regards,

The RBmatlab developers (M. Dihlmann, M. Drohmann, B. Haasdonk,

M. Ohlberger and M. Schaefer.)

"This book is a valuable new reference on the subject of totally

nonnegative matrices and its insights will be much appreciated by a

broad community of readers interested in matrix theory and its

applications."--Charles Micchelli, City University of Hong Kong and

State University of New York, Albany

Totally nonnegative matrices arise in a remarkable variety of

mathematical applications. This book is a comprehensive and

self-contained study of the essential theory of totally nonnegative

matrices, defined by the nonnegativity of all subdeterminants. It

explores methodological background, historical highlights of key

ideas, and specialized topics.

Time: July 25th to July 29th, 2011

Location: Institut fuer Numerische Simulation, Bonn

Deadline for registration: June 19th, 2011

(20 seats available, still a few vacant)

Topic: Hierarchical matrices can be a useful tool for the treatment of

integral operators as well as the solution of linear systems arising

in the discretisation of elliptic partial differential equations.

Moreover, the representation of matrices in the hierarchical matrix

format is suitable for the efficient solution of matrix equations.

The aim of this winterschool is to teach the necessary theoretical

foundations of hierarchical matrices, but most of all the efficient

implementation of the algorithms. The practical realisation on the

computer will be the topic of exercise courses in the afternoon. The

participants will use the HLib library in order to assemble and solve

BEM and FEM systems. Lecture notes are available.

**Subject: PhD Position, Economic MPC, DTU Informatics**

DTU Informatics would like to invite applications for a 3-year PhD

position starting as soon as possible and no later than September 1,

2011.

In 2050, Denmark should be independent of fossil fuels. To reach this

vision, a significant amount of stochastic energy sources such as wind

power and solar power must be integrated into the energy system. The

energy demand must be made smart by adoption of cooling systems, heat

pumps, and electrical vehicles that consume and store energy when it

is abundant and therefore cheap. In addition conventional production

of power must be made much more flexible. To achieve this in an

economic efficient and robust manner, new algorithms for control and

optimization of large scale stochastic systems must be developed.

In this project, we develop new algorithms and software for Economic

Model Predictive Control of large-scale stochastic systems. We will

demonstrate the applicability and efficiency of these controllers on

smart energy systems involving controllable energy consumers and

producers as well as a significant amount of stochastic energy

producers. The resulting methodologies will be useful in realizing the

so called Smart Grid.

The supervisors for the project are Associate Professors John Bagterp

J=F8rgensen and Niels Kj=F8lstad Poulsen.

The project is part of the =93Smart & Cool=94 project. Smart & Cool is

collaboration between Danfoss A/S, DONG Energy A/S, Aalborg

University, and DTU Informatics. In total 4 PhD students will be

associated to the project.
