ED OSBORNE

Ed Osborne, who made many contributions to numerical linear algebra,

passed away on September 11, 1994, after suffering from emphysema and

arthritis for many years. He was 76 years old, and is survived by his

wife, Phyllis, and two children, Chris and Meredith.

He was born August 27, 1918, served for five years during World War II

(much of it as an Army Air Corps weather observer in North Africa),

and earned all of his degrees at UCLA, receiving the PhD in 1952. He

taught at the University of Connecticut for one year, and returned to

the Numerical Analysis Research project at UCLA. He also taught

numerical analysis courses in the UCLA Extension, and, in 1957,

married one of his students, Phyllis van Liew.

His subsequent career, from the beginning of the space age, was at

Ramo-Wooldridge Corporation and its successors, Space Technology

Laboratories and TRW. He devised a very useful algorithm for scaling

of matrices in eigenvalue computations. He was a cheerful fellow,

always laughing. He retired in 1985. In 1992 he was happy to see

many of his old friends from the early days at a reunion in Los

Angeles during SIAM's 40th Anniversary Meeting.

**Subject: Sparse Matrix Collection**

I'm collecting a set of large sparse matrices, available via anonymous

ftp to ftp.cis.ufl.edu in the directory pub/umfpack/matrices. These include

the following subdirectories:

Goodwin finite-element, fluid mechanics problem, from Ralph

Goodwin, Univ. of Illinois

Hamm circuit simulation matrices from Steve Hamm, Motorola

Mallya chemical engineering matrices from Jayarama Mallya,

Univ. of Illinois.

Portfolio a financial portfolio optimization problem, acquired by

Ed Rothberg, Silicon Graphics

Shyy CFD matrices from Wei Shyy, Univ. of Florida

Simon CFD matrices from Horst Simon, NASA

Wang semiconducter device simulations, from Song Wang,

University of New South Wales

Zitney chemical engineering matrices from Steve Zitney, Cray

Research, Inc.

The largest matrices (from Shyy, Mallya, and Simon, and in the Portfolio

subdirectory) are about 70,000-by-70,000, with up to 1.7 million nonzeros.

These include both symmetric and unsymmetric matrices. Each subdirectory

contains a README file that gives more information about the matrices.

I'll be adding to this collection as new matrices arrive. If you would like

to add to this collection, please contact me (davis@cis.ufl.edu, phone

1 (904) 392-1481). Adding your matrix to this collection has the potential of

improving the performance of future sparse matrix algorithms for your type of

matrices, by making them available to any sparse algorithm developer.

Other useful collections of sparse matrices include the Harwell/Boeing

collection (anon. ftp to orion.cerfacs.fr) and SPARSKIT2 (anon. ftp to

ftp.cs.umn.edu).

**Subject: MATLAB Toolkit for Linear Programming**

I am pleased to announce the Beta release of LIPSOL -- Linear

programming Interior-Point SOLvers.

-- What is LIPSOL? --

LIPSOL is a MATLAB toolkit that uses Matlab's sparse-matrix data

structure and MEX utilities to achieve both programming simplicity and

computational efficiency. The primary goal of this software is to

provide researchers and their students in the field of interior-point

methods a convenient and yet powerful tool for quickly experimenting

and comparing various ideas and algorithms on nontrivial LP problems.

The current release is Beta-version. It can solve a large majority of

LP problems in the Netlib collection, mostly within seconds on a fast

workstation such as SGI Indigo 2. LIPSOL is still under active

development. Some effective techniques are still to be implemented,

such as dense-column handling.

Highly expandable, LIPSOL may also be used as a teaching tool, or even

to solve real-world problems of tens of thousands of variables.

-- What platforms are supported? --

The Beta version contains binary files without sources and is

therefore machine-dependent. It includes distributions for DEC

(Ultrix), SGI (IRIX 4.1 and 5.2) and Sun Sparcs (SunOS 4)

workstations. Future releases will be including sources and be more

portable.

-- Where to obtain LIPSOL? --

LIPSOL Beta-version is free and may be downloaded through anonymous

FTP from the site:

ftp.math.umbc.edu

in the directory: pub/zhang/lipsol (also available through WWW from

the URL: http://math.umbc.edu/~zhang/). There are 2 subdirectories:

matlab_4.1 and matlab_4.2, containing LIPSOL distributions constructed

using Matlab 4.1 and Matlab 4.2 MEX utilities, respectively. A draft

of a User's Guide is also available both as a compressed Postscript

file and a compressed DVI file (compressed by gzip).

The installation and use of LIPSOL are simple. See the README files

for further information.
