Subject: Tensorlab v2.0 release

It is our pleasure to announce the release of the second version of
Tensorlab, a MATLAB toolbox for tensor computations. Tensorlab v2.0
brings support for sparse and incomplete tensors and allows you to
define your own (coupled) tensor decompositions with structured
factors. Users can choose from a library of predefined tensor
decompositions and factor structures such as nonnegativity,
orthogonality, matrix inverse, Toeplitz, Hankel and Vandermonde
structure. A diverse selection of example applications are
demonstrated in the tech. report at .


The toolbox is free to use for non-commercial research. We hope that
you'll find it useful in your research and we welcome all suggestions
and feedback.

Subject: DiffpackSE

Enter the world of interactive online PDE simulation with DiffpackSE.

Solving partial differential equations (PDE) is a complex topic and
requires good coding skills or deep knowledge of appropriate programs.

The goal of the Diffpack Smart Environment (DiffpackSE) is to provide
a powerful easy to handle interface solving different kinds of
PDEs. Just open your bowser (Mozilla Firefox is recommended) and get
all instruments online on one page. No installations are required.

The interface supports all parts of the simulation process from mesh
generation up to graphical 3D results visualization. Choose your
equation, create a 2D or 3D mesh, set user defined parameters and get
the FEM solution in a fully interactive 3D view.

The automatic source code generation enables fast and easy code
development in your own Diffpack environment. This gives you the best
starting point to develop extensive applications for the solution of
more advanced / user defined PDEs employing the powerful Diffpack C++

The results of the web interface can be embedded in any well-known
simulation package and incorporated in your own simulation workflow.

Just open DiffpackSE at and find a
new world of mathematical simulation.

Subject: Celebrating 400 years of Napier's logarithms, UK, Apr 2014

Various organisations in Scotland coordinated by the Royal Society of
Edinburgh are holding a series of workshops and events to celebrate
the discovery/development of logarithms by John Napier in Edinburgh in
1614. The last such celebration was in 1914.

* Napier 400 - Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software
Symposium, 2nd April 2014 at ICMS in Edinburgh

The aim of this NAIS one-day scientific symposium is to have
presentations by and discussions with international experts on a broad
range of topics of current interest in numerical analysis and
scientific computing, that might also be interpreted as continuing the
spirit of Napier's work of devising efficient algorithms and
associated computing devices. However, the meeting will mainly focus
on what is happening now and into the future, rather than looking
backwards to Napier's time.

Speakers: Martin Gander (Geneva), Mike Giles (Oxford), Nick Higham
(Manchester), Hilary Weller (Reading), Margaret Wright (Courant

3rd Workshop on Parallel-in-Time Integration: Parallel Multi-level
Methods in Space and Time, Juelich Supercomputing Centre (Germany),
May 26-28, 2014

With million-way concurrency at hand, the efficient use of modern HPC
systems has become one of the key challenges in computational science
and engineering. Besides optimal implementation strategies, novel
mathematical concepts are needed to fully exploit massively parallel
architectures. For the numerical solution of time-dependent partial
differential equations, time-parallel methods have recently shown to
provide a promising way to extend prevailing strong-scaling limits of
numerical codes. This workshop will bring together scientists from the
fields of multigrid methods and parallel- in-time integration in order
to discuss similarities between parallel multilevel algorithms in
space and time, their applications and their combination.

The IMA is pleased to announce the first conference on Mathematical
Modelling of Fluid Systems, taking place at the University of Bath in
September 2014.

As the most versatile medium for transmitting signals and power, fluid
(gas or liquid) have wide usage in industry. Fluid systems are used in
machine tool applications, vehicle control systems, where high power
to weight ratio, accuracy and quick response are required. Fluid
systems for industrial processes often involve networks consisting of
tanks, pipes, orifices, valves, pumps and other flow devices. It is
important to develop a systematic method to mathematically model
different types of fluid systems for safe and optimal operations.

Conference topics include the following and are invited to be
presented in oral and poster sessions: Analysis and computational
methods of fluid systems; Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach
to engineering systems; Fluid power systems; Multiphase flow;
Modelling and design of fluid system components; Control design
methodologies and techniques for fluid systems and applications; Novel
fluid system configurations; New approaches to system modelling and
system design; Pressure surge; Hydraulic systems; Medical applications

Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 250 word
abstract. Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 25 April by e- mail
to Please state whether your title is intended
for oral or poster presentation.

The success of modern methods for large-scale optimisation is heavily
dependent on the use of effective tools of numerical linear

purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from both
communities and to find and communicate points and topics of common
interest. Conference topics include any subject that could be of
interest to both communities, such as:
- Direct and iterative methods for large sparse linear systems.
- Eigenvalue computation and optimisation.
- Large-scale nonlinear and semidefinite programming.
- Effect of round-off errors, stopping criteria, embedded iterative
- Optimisation issues for matrix polynomials
- Fast matrix computations.

algebra. In many situations, a discretization of a partial

possibility to study new recent types of physical models. The project
involves algorithms, theory, applications and software. The new

the theory for analytic functions. The algorithms will be used to
study specific problems in acoustics, in particular models of
waveguides, and also problems in quantum mechanics and quantum

Subject: PhD Positions, Inverse Problems/Tomography

DTU Compute ( invites applications for two
3-year PhD positions starting Sept. 1 2014 in the section for
Scientific Computing. The positions are affiliated with the project
High-Definition Tomography (HD-Tomo,
financed by the European Research Council.

Project 1: Prior-Driven Diffusion Regularization for Inverse Problems.
We consider a special type of regularization based on (often nonlinear
and anisotropic) diffusion, in which the diffusivity is designed using
prior information. Such methods are well-understood in image analysis
in the context of denoising, but for solving general inverse problems
in tomography little is known. The results from image analysis will
serve as the starting point for the project, and we will both seek to
advance the theory in the field and develop algorithms for a
computational approach to the problem. For more details, see a2bd-0862cb13c2e9

Project Description 2: Segmentation-Driven Tomographic Reconstruction.
We consider tomographic reconstruction aimed at subsequent
segmentation. Based on certain applications such as porous materials
analysis, we will incorporate many kinds of prior information in order
to produce more suitable reconstructions for the segmentation. One
obvious advantage is that with the help of “better” reconstruction
results the segmentation can be simplified and become more robust to
the parameter selection, e.g., a simple thresholding technique may
suffice. Concerning prior information in porous material, we will
design new mathematical models and numerical algorithms to obtain new
kinds of tomographic reconstruction, which can benefit the
segmentation. For more details, see 88e8-e52cb5a1d07f

Candidates for both positions must have a master degree in applied
mathematics, or equivalent academic qualifications, and must have a
strong background in applied mathematics and numerical computations.
