 West Virginia University
Eberly Family Distinguished
Professorship
in Applied Mathematics
 The Department of Mathematics invites applications and
nominations for the Eberly Family Distinguished Professorship in
Applied Mathematics.
The holder of the Eberly Professorship will provide academic
leadership in the department's applied mathematics program. The
successful candidate must have outstanding scholarly
accomplishments in applied mathematics, a record of funded
research and a commitment to excellence in teaching.
The department has made several junior level appointments in
applied mathematics in recent years. Our research areas are in
applied analysis, approximation theory, continuum mechanics,
discrete mathematics, multiphase flow, numerical analysis, and
perturbation methods.
WVU is located in Morgantown. It takes approximately 80
minutes to drive north to Pittsburgh and three and a half hours to
drive east to Washington DC. The Morgantown area has a population
of around 50,000 and the University has around 19,000 students.
The surrounding countryside is beautiful and offers a great deal
all year round. There are many hiking routes and skiing
opportunities within 20 minutes of town. The area is relatively
inexpensive and the selection of houses available is varied. A
typical three bedroom house costs in the region of $80,000. Annual
property taxes on such a house would be about $300. There are few
traffic problems in town.
Applications, nominations, or requests for information should
be directed to:
Dr Alphonse Baartmans
Department of Mathematics
West Virginia University
Morgantown, WV 26506
Enquiries by electronic mail can be sent to:

The deadline for applications and nominations is January 15,
1988. The position will be available August 16, 1988. Candidates
should submit a letter of application, a current vita and the
names and addresses of five references. WVU is an Affirmative
Action/Equal Opportunity employer.

Subject: NEW PROGRAM: SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING & COMPUTATIONAL MATH
NEW PROGRAM at STANFORD
SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING
and
COMPUTATIONAL MATHEMATICS
A graduate program for highly qualified students in those areas of
applied mathematics, numerical analysis, and computer science that
concern the analysis and simulation of physical systems. PhD and MS
programs are offered.
This program focuses upon the structures of problem formulation,
algorithm formulation, computing environments and their relationships.
Programs of study are based upon a core curriculum of courses in
applied mathematics, numerical analysis and computer science and a
unified depth sequence in an area of physical science or engineering.
