Subject: Bessel Function Derivatives

Does anybody out there know of any software to evaluate the
derivative with respect to the order nu of Bessel function K_nu(z)?
I am interested in evaluations for real valued nu and z. This
function was part of an expression generated by Mathematica as the
value of an integral, but there is no such function available in
that system.

I would appreciate references or any information you can provide.

Subject: Software for Generalized Lyapunov Equations

I would like to announce the release of new FORTRAN codes for solving
the generalized Lyapunov matrix equations

   T        T                       T        T
  A  X E + E  X A = - Y    and     A  X A - E  X E  =  - Y.
Our software contains implementations of both the Bartels-Stewart method and
Hammarling's method.

The main features of the codes are:

* BLAS/LAPACK-based implementation (good performance, portability)
* implementation in FORTRAN77 (portability)
* estimation of separation and condition number
* scaling to prevent the solution from overflow
* solution of the transposed equations without transposing the involved
matrices explicitly

Manual pages for the main routines and example programs are enclosed.
Moreover, there is a preprint providing further information about the methods
utilized as well as their implementation.

The software and the preprint are available via anonymous ftp at

from the directory


where the compressed files

dglp.tar.Z (Bartels-Stewart method: subroutines, manual page, example)
dglphm.tar.Z (Hammarling's method: subroutines, manual page, example) (postscript version of the abovementioned preprint)

can be found.

Subject: BLAST Forum


The existing BLAS have proven to be very effective in assisting
portable, efficient software for sequential, vector and shared
memory high-performance computers.

A forum has been establish to consider expanding the BLAS in a
number of directions in light of modern software, language, and
hardware developments.

On February 19-20, 1996 we held a BLAST Forum meeting in Nashville.
The minutes from that meeting are available on the BLAST Forum homepage:

We are planning another meeting of the Forum on May 20-22 in Atlanta.
If you would like to contribute to this ongoing discussion specific details
can be found in the BLAST Forum homepage.

Subject: New Book on Global Optimization


TITLE: Global Optimization in Action (Continuous and Lipschitz
Optimization: Algorithms, Implementations and Applications)
AUTHOR: Janos D. Pinter (
PUBLISHER: Kluwer Academic Publishers (

In sciences, engineering, and economics, decision problems are frequently
modelled by optimizing the value of a (primary) objective function, under
stated feasibility constraints. In many cases of practical relevance, the
optimization problem structure does not warrant the global optimality of
solutions found by local scope search approaches. Since the number and
quality of the local solutions is typically unknown, there is a strong
rationality for seeking the globally best solution(s).
The present volume provides a comprehensive discussion of adaptive parti-
tion strategies to solve global optimization problems under very general
structural requirements. A unified aproach to numerous known algorithms
makes possible their straightforward generalizations and extensions, with
a view towards efficient implementations.
A considerable part of the book is devoted to various applications. These
include some generic problems in numerical analysis, and several case
studies in engineering and environmental systems analysis and management.

AUDIENCE: professors, students, researchers and other professionals from
the fields of operations research, management science, industrial and ap-
plied mathematics, computer science, economics, engineering and environ-
mental sciences.

Subject: New Book on Functional Analysis Applications

New Book Published
FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS; Applications in Mechanics and Inverse Problems
L.P. Lebedev, I.I. Vorovich (Dept. of Math.& Mech., Rostov SUniv., Russia)
G.M.L. Gladwell (Dept. of Civ.Eng., University of Waterloo, Canada)
Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht; 248 pp. , ISBN: 0-7923-3849-9
This is a book for people who want to use functional analysis to justify
approximate methods in Mechanics and Inverse Problems. It provides such
researchers with the tools they need without having to assimilate or skip
through concepts they do not need. For the applied mathematician the essential
difficulty attending the study of functional analysis is that the pure
mathematicians who have developed the field have carried the process of
abstraction to increasingly higher levels. In this book the authors have kept
the level of abstraction high enough for the majority of applications, and
have resisted the temptation to abstract to the limit.

Subject: Position at the University of Nijmegen

Workgroup in Numerical Analysis, Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics

For the project "High performance Computing of non-linear problems in the
numerical modelling of constructions" a ph.d. research position is
available with start as soon as possible. The project is supported by the
Netherlands Technology Foundation (STW).

The research concerns the development of numerical solution methods for
linear and non-linear problems which work efficiently on parallel
computers. The best methods will be implemented first in a pilot version
primarily for a network of workstations.
Later the methods will be implemented in a product version of the f.e.
software package DIANA at TNO Building Constructions Research at Rijswijk
and applied for very large scale problems arising in material science
The method development takes place at the Numerical Analysis group at the
University of Nijmegen, while the implementation and validation takes place
at TNO.

Required experience
The successful candidate should have a university degree in Mathematics or
Computer Science with documented knowledge of the finite element method.
Experience as a programmer for high performence computers is an additional

Employment conditions
The employment takes place in the form of a temporary position (max 4 years)
at NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research). The salary for
the first year is 2091,- brut per month and increases to 3734,- in the
fourth year. Female candidates are encouraged to apply.

Further information:
Call prof. A.O.H. Axelsson, tel (024)3653231 or e-mail,

The written application with a curriculum vitae and copies of diplomas
should be sent within two weeks to Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics,
afd. Personele Zaken,Toernooiveld 1, 6525 ED Nijmegen with reference to the
vacant position number 49-96 on the envelope.
