**Subject: Seeking arXiv Editor**

The Computing Research Repository (CoRR), also known as the Computer

Science section of arxiv.org, is an open source repository for

preprints in the field of computing. Authors select topic

categorizations when submitting articles, and each such category has a

volunteer editor who checks whether the category is appropriate and if

the submission is indeed a research article. Editors do not generally

review articles for quality, only for appropriateness; such reviews

typically can be done in a minute or so each. I am currently the

gatekeeper for three categories within CoRR: (1) Numerical Analysis,

(2) Mathematical Software, and (3) Computational Science, Engineering

and Finance. CoRR is looking for a volunteer willing to succeed me as

Editor. The position provides one with a unique perspective on current

research being undertaken in these areas. About 2-4 such papers are

submitted each day, so the workload is very modest. If you are

interested in performing this service to the community please contact

me.

**Subject: Announcing FEAST Eigensolver v3.0**

FEAST is a free high-performance numerical library for solving the

eigenvalue problem, and obtaining all the eigenvalues and (right/left)

eigenvectors within a given search interval or arbitrary domain in the

complex plane. Its originality lies with a new transformative

numerical approach to the traditional eigenvalue algorithm design -

the FEAST algorithm. The algorithm contains elements from complex

analysis, numerical linear algebra and approximation theory. It is

defined as an optimal subspace iteration method using approximate

spectral projectors. The FEAST eigensolver combines simplicity and

efficiency and offers many important capabilities for achieving high

performance, robustness, accuracy, and scalability on parallel

architectures. The package includes flexible reverse communication

interfaces and ready to use predefined interfaces for dense, banded

and sparse systems.

The new version v3.0 of the FEAST package can address both Hermitian

and non-Hermitian eigenvalue problems (real symmetric, real

non-symmetric, complex Hermitian, complex symmetric, or complex

general systems) on both shared-memory and distributed memory

architectures (i.e contains both FEAST-SMP and FEAST-MPI

packages). The new upgrade includes, in particular:

1 Supports for non-Hermitian systems (more than 100 new routines)

2 New and improved quadrature schemes (including Zolotarev

approximant)

3 Stochastic estimates for eigenvalue counts

4 Expert routines using custom contour

5 Highly-scalable banded interfaces using the new spike-smp solver

The software can be downloaded from the following website:

http://www.feast-solver.org

Remark: FEAST v2.1 (Hermitian-SMP) is also integrated into INTEL-MKL

(Intel MKL Extended Eigensolver)

**Subject: New Book, Finite Dimensional Linear Systems**

Announcing the May 26, 2015, publication by SIAM of:

Finite Dimensional Linear Systems, by Roger W. Brockett

xvi + 244 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611973-87-7 / List Price $74.00

/ SIAM Member Price $51.80 / Order Code CL74

Originally published in 1970, Finite Dimensional Linear Systems is a

classic textbook that provides a solid foundation for learning about

dynamical systems and encourages students to develop a reliable

intuition for problem solving. The theory of linear systems has been

the bedrock of control theory for 50 years and has served as the

springboard for many significant developments, all the while remaining

impervious to change. Since linearity lies at the heart of much of the

mathematical analysis used in applications, a firm grounding in its

central ideas is essential.

This book touches upon many of the standard topics in applied

mathematics, develops the theory of linear systems in a systematic

way, making as much use as possible of vector ideas, and contains a

number of nontrivial examples and many exercises.

**Subject: PhD Position, KU Leuven**

PhD position "Multivariate Polynomial and Rational Interpolation and

Approximation with applications in engineering"

In several theoretical as well as computational mathematical problems,

one wants to work with complicated multivariate functions. However, in

a lot of cases performing operations with these original functions is

cumbersome and requires an unacceptably high computational effort. A

solution to this problem is to replace the original complicated

function by a function that can be handled much more easily, e.g.,

polynomial or rational functions. Within this space of simpler

functions, we can look for the function that optimizes one of several

possible criteria. The computational effort to find, e.g., a minmax

approximant is large. Instead a nearly optimal approximant can be

found by just computing the function that interpolates the original

function in certain well-chosen points, called â€œgood pointsâ€. The

â€œgood pointsâ€ themselves can be chosen in an optimal or nearly optimal

way according to a certain optimization criterion that specifies the

â€œgoodnessâ€ of the set of points. Further details can be found at the

project webpage

http://nalag.cs.kuleuven.be/research/projects/MUPORAIA.shtml

In this project, we will study â€œgood pointsâ€ for multivariate

interpolation and approximation for different function spaces as well

as â€œgood representationsâ€ for the corresponding interpolant/

approximant. The theory of these â€œgood pointsâ€ and â€œgood

representationsâ€ will be developed as well as the corresponding

efficient and accurate algorithms to compute them and work with

them. We will also study several applications in which these tools

could play a key role.
