From: Jack Shaio <necntc!ci-dandelion!bunny!js07@husc6.harvard.edu>

To: na@score.stanford.edu

I'm looking for a GOOD (IMSL-like)package of math subroutines,

preferably written in C,

and callable from a C program. My main use is solving nonlinear

equations, and the version of IMSL that we have doesn't implement

the homotopy method.

Does anyone know of other packages available ?

Will they make the accountants scream ?

I need stuff that will run under UNIX, on a VAX 11/785.

Please reply by e-mail, and I'll post a summary to the net.

thanks

A MULTIGRID TUTORIAL

For those of you who want to get a basic understanding of multigrid concepts

and principles, you should know that SIAM is just about to publish "A Multigrid

Tutorial" by Bill Briggs. This book is a must for those of you who are totally

unfamiliar with multigrid or are uneasy about your current perceptions. The

last chapter should be read by anyone who is interested in obtaining a good

theoretical understanding of multigrid performance. In simple terms, it unifies

the algebraic and spectral theories and gives excellent justification for why

multigrid works so well. Finally, if you're thinking about introducing multigrid

into the classroom, you should consider this book as a possible supplemental

text or resource.

The tutorial is fairly short (about 90 pages) with lots of informative graphs

and illustrations. Best of all, it's cheap: $10.80 for SIAM members, $13.50

otherwise. You can obtain a copy by writing SIAM Customer Service, 117 S. 17th

St., 14th Floor, Phila., PA 19103-5052 or by direct purchase at the October

SIAM meeting in Denver where the price will be $9.45.

Does anyone have the Cooley-Tukey FFT algorithm coded in either C or

Fortran? We have a paper copy of the algorithm on the way, but would

prefer an already coded routine. Thanks,

SUBJECT: FACULTY POSITION AT STONY BROOK

The Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department, State University

of New York at Stony Brook, is looking for a Senior Numerical Analyst (Full

Professor) to start in September 1988. We are looking for someone in the

areas of Large Scale Scientific Computation, Development and Implementation

readily accessible - one is only ten minutes from the campus. The Stony

Brook computing environment includes a state-of-the-art local

communications network. The department has seventy-six full time

graduate students and produces between seven and eight Ph.D's each year.

SUNY is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.

The Public Review Of The Next Draft Proposed Fortran Standard

Begins

Brian T. Smith

Mathematics and Computer Science Division

Argonne National Laboratory

The ANSI Fortran Standards subcommittee X3J3 has completed a

draft of the next proposed standard, informally known as Fortran

8x, and is presenting it for public review. The public review

lasts for four months and is tentatively expected to begin in

early October, 1987. At approximately the same time, the Inter-

national Standards Organization is reviewing the draft proposed

Fortran standard for three months beginning in early November,

1987. The two reviews will thus be completed at roughly the same

time in early February, 1988.

The Fortran community, in particular the numerical community, is

strongly encouraged to review this draft proposed standard. The

document is available from Global Engineering Documents and cost

$50 (U.S.A) if sent to a U.S. address and $65 to an internation-

al address. International orders can be placed at the following

address:

Phone Number (from U.S.A): 1-800-854-7179

Phone Number (outside U.S.A): 1-714-540-9870

This document is written in the form of a draft standard and as

such is not very readable. More readable descriptions are avail-

able and include the following publications. John Reid and Mike

Metcalf have a book titled "Fortran 8x Explained", published by

Oxford University Press. Their book will be available in No-

vember, 1988. The Department of Energy's Language Working Group

has written a paper titled "A Review And Analysis of Fortran 8x",

edited by B. T. Smith, Mathematics and Computer Science Division,

Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Ave., Lemont, Illinois,

U.S.A. 60439. This will be available in late October, 1987.

This proposed Fortran standard has been influenced by the parti-

cipation of several people from the numerical community. These

include: George Paul from IBM Yorktown, John Reid from Harwell,

Lawrie Schonfelder from the University of Liverpool, and Brian

Smith. The new features of particular interest to the numerical

community are the array processing facility, the generalized pre-

cision facility, the environmental inquiry and floating point

manipulation intrinsic functions, internal procedures, new pro-

cedure interface mechanisms, and the new program unit called a

module which permits the sharing of global data and procedures.

I encourage you to carefully consider the proposed standard and

to send comments to the Fortran standards subcommittee X3J3 on

the good and bad aspects of the draft. Comments should be sent

to:

THE INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS AND ITS APPLICATIONS

Conference on COMPUTATIONAL ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

Imperial College, London July 3-7, 1989

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS AND POSTERS

The IMA, jointly with SIAM, is organizing a conference on Computational

Ordinary Differential Equations, to be held at Imperial College, London,

in July 1989.

The aim of this meeting is to bring together research workers and

practitioners in theory and algorithms for the numerical solution of

ordinary differential equations. Contributions from workers in applications

areas will be encouraged. The format of the meeting will be designed to

permit maximum interaction between the participants. The use of

parallel sessions will be minimized and, if practicable, avoided.

The following are the topics to be covered in the conference:

(i) Theory and algorithms for the numerical solution of initial and

boundary value problems in ordinary differential equations,

differential algebraic equations and delay equations.

(ii) Applications areas including the method of lines for partial

differential equations.

(iii) Structured and compartmentalized systems.

(iv) Numerical methods for dynamical systems.

(v) Parameterized and bifurcation problems.

(vi) Impact of supercomputers on numerical methods for ordinary

differential equations.

(vii) Expert systems and graphics in ordinary differential equations.

(viii) Related topics.

The program will include ``highlighted'' papers, contributed papers

and posters. The highlighted papers will be of 40 minutes presentation

time, and contributed papers of 20 minutes presentation time. The

highlighted papers will be selected by the organizing committee

(J. R. Cash, A. R. Curtis, R. England, I. Gladwell and A. Iserles)

on the basis of an extended abstract (1000 words), contributed papers

and posters on the basis of a 300 word abstract. Abstracts for all

categories should be sent to the IMA and must be received by

December 1, 1988. Authors will be notified of the committee's decision

during January 1989.

There will be a reduced conference fee for full-time graduate students.

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Oxford University

Press in the IMA Conference Proceedings Series.

Abstracts and other enquiries should be sent to:

The Secretary and Registrar

The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications

Maitland House, Warrior Square

Southend-on-Sea

Essex SS1 2JY

United Kingdom.

Information can also be obtained from J.R. Cash, either by post

Dept. at the University of Iowa. In sending mail replies, send to her

replies, send those to NA.ATKINSON.

Ken Atkinson

I'm looking for graph algorithms coded in Pascal. Specifically, the

graph algorithms that appear in Reingold, Nievergelt, and Deo's

Combinatorial Algorithms. I am particularly interested in the algorithms

that, given a graph,

(a) list all of its cycles

(b) finds all maximal cliques

(c) tests for planarity

Any information concerning coded versions of these or other graph

algorithms would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kathy O'Hara
