**Subject: Paul Noble Swarztrauber, 1936-2011**

Dear NA-Digest Readers:

Dr. Paul Swarztrauber passed away in Boulder, Colorado on August 8,

2011. He is known to this digest and also internationally, having

made invited presentations to universities and computing research

centers in several countries. During his 41-year career at the

National Center for Atmospheric Research, he emphasized computer-aided

weather and climate prediction. Math libraries fishpack, fftpack, and

spherepack demonstrate this emphasis, as do his 60+ journal

articles. He worked with numerous scientists and numerical analysts,

and mentored several mathematicians in their early careers. Aside

from these efforts, Paul developed parallel communication algorithms

on various network topologies, particularly for FFTs and transposing

arrays. He holds two US patents on the "Communication Machine", which

orchestrates communication between an unlimited number of processors.

He continued his academic and technical interests until the very end

of his life. You may visit his full obituary and publication list at

these sites http://www.dailycamera.com/obits/ci_18708995 and

**Subject: PhD Positions, Comp Math/NA, Linkoping Univ**

One or more PhD positions in Computational Mathematics/Numerical

Analysis

The particular project: Nonlinear generation of internal waves in the

deep ocean by tides. The deep ocean circulation arises as a response

to vertical mixing, which is mainly caused by breaking internal

waves. The tides are probably a major source of these waves (internal

waves are created when tidal currents encounter rough topography on

the bottom of the ocean). The goal of the project is to compute the

generation of oceanic internal waves by tidal currents flowing over

rough bottom topography. We will develop an efficient incompressible

flow solver to be able to predict this process. The flow solver will

also be used to study several other important oceanographic phenomena,

for example gravity currents and dense overflows. Computational

mathematics for wave propagation and flow problems will also be

developed.

The student(s) will be member(s) in a new group (Computational Physics

Unit) that develops computational methods for partial differential

equations with applications in physics and mechanics. Expertise and

interest in theory for initial boundary value problems, high order

methods and multi-physics problems is qualifying.

See http://www.liu.se/en/job/ for the complete announcement and

details on how to apply.

**Subject: PhD Position, Nonlin Eigenproblems, Saarland Univ**

A PhD studentship is available at the Department of Mathematics and

Computer science, Saarland University, Germany. We are seeking a

qualified PhD student for the project "Nonlinear eigenproblems for

high-dimensional data analysis" funded by the German Research

Foundation (DFG).

Project overview:

The computation of eigenvectors and eigenvalues in the linear

eigenproblem is well studied and a large portfolio of methods taking

into account different kinds of structure of the corresponding

matrices exists. However, a large number of problems in machine

learning and statistics and other domains can naturally be formulated

as nonlinear eigenproblems. In order to use the rich structure of

nonlinear eigenproblems in applications, similar to the ease of linear

eigenproblems, the goal of this research project is the development of

a general framework for the computation of nonlinear eigenvectors and

the application of this framework for different problems in data

analysis.

We are looking for a motivated student with a master/diploma in

mathematics, computer science or physics. A strong analytic

background as well as programming skills (C/Matlab) are required. In

particular, knowledge in at least one of the following fields is

mandatory: convex optimization, functional analysis, machine

learning/statistics.

The duration of the project will be 3 years with a salary of 75% TV-L

E13. The deadline for application is September 30, 2011.
