A N N O U N C I N G

HotGAMS (revised)

A Java(tm) powered frontend to the

NIST Guide to Available Mathematical Software

http://math.nist.gov/HotGAMS/

A revised HotGAMS, a Java powered client of the NIST Guide to Available

Mathematical Software server, is now available for public use on the

Internet on an experimental basis.

The Guide to Available Mathematical Software is an on-line cross-index of

mathematical and statistical software in use at the National Institute of

Standards and Technology (NIST). HotGAMS allows interactive exploration of the

problem taxonomy, various search operations, and enhanced `refinement' of

search results.

Java is still evolving; The previous version suffered a number of problems

particularly with the user-interface on Windows 95 & Windows NT systems. This

revision fixes or works around all such known problems. It also takes

advantage of the new `archive' feature in Netscape 3.0 (beta 6 and later ?) to

dramatically speed up the downloading of the program (it is still usable in

other browsers, however). If you tried out HotGAMS before, and had problems

with it, please give it another try.

For more information, contact Bruce R. Miller (bruce.miller@nist.gov).

**Subject: Computing Just One Component of the Solution to a Linear System**

We have the following problem: to compute just an entry of the solution

of a Ax=b. That is, to compute x(i)=ei'*x where Ax=b, and ei is the

vector with a 1 on place i and 0 on every other place. In other

words, recalling Cramer's rule we want to compute x(i)=di/d, d=det(A).

A is large, symmetric positive definite, block tridiagonal.

Our simplest problem has a rhs=ej=vector with a 1 in place j on every

other place.

We will appreciate any information about this or a related problem.

**Subject: MATCOM, Matlab to C++ Compiler and Math Library, Available**

MathTools Ltd. is pleased to announce MATCOM V2, a Matlab to C++

compiler and Math Library). MATCOM creates MEX files and standalone C++

applications, with royalty free distribution.

Fully functional, time limited evaluation version of MATCOM V2 can be

downloaded freely from the MathTools web site, http://www.mathtools.com.

MATCOM is based on the MATCOM MATH LIBRARY, A C++ Matrix library

consisting of over 300 mathematical function. Functions supplied include

basic unary and binary operations, powerful indexing capabilities,

signal processing, file i/o, linear algebra, string operations and

graphics. The Linear Algebra functions are based on the well known

LINPACK and EISPACK. Complex matrices are fully supported. The library

is built on the target system, enabling the selection of compiler

optimization flags and local BLAS libraries.

MATCOM supports matrices of doubles, floats, ints and chars mixed in the

program. On many applications, where 8 digits of precision are sufficient,

float matrices can save half the memory usage.

2D and 3D Graphics is supported in standalone applications using the

freely available graphics package, Gnuplot.

MATCOM/UNIX supports Linux, SunOS, Solaris, Irix, AIX, HPUX, OSF1 and

Ultrix. gcc or the vendor supplied C++ compiler can be used. MATCOM/PC

supports Windows 3.11, Windows 95, Windows NT and OS/2. Visual C++,

Borland C++, Watcom C++ and DJGPP can be used.

**Subject: Conference in Cyprus on Computational Methods and Function Theory**

First announcement of the International Conference

Computational Methods and Function Theory '97

( C M F T 9 7 )

Nicosia, Cyprus October 13-18, 1997

Organizers:

N. Papamichael (Nicosia), St. Ruscheweyh (Wurzburg), E.B. Saff (Tampa)

The University of Cyprus at Nicosia will be hosting the third international

conference on Computational Methods and Function Theory (CMFT '97) to be

held October 13-18, 1997. The general theme of the meeting concerns the

various aspects of interaction of complex variables and scientific

computation, but other areas from function theory, approximation theory

and numerical analysis are also covered. Another important aim of the CMFT

meetings is to assist in the creation and maintenance of contacts with

scientists from diverse cultures. This is also reflected in the location

of the meeting: Cyprus is an ideal place, traditionally serving as a bridge

between the East and the West.

Because of limited space, participation is by invitation only. Those who

are interested in being invited or need additional information should

write (before March 15, 1997) to:

Professor N. Papamichael,

University of Cyprus (CMFT'97),

P.O. Box 537, CY 1678 Nicosia, Cyprus

Phone : +357-2-476313

Fax : +357-2-360438

e-mail : cmft97@pythagoras.mas.ucy.ac.cy

There will be several invited one-hour lectures as well as contributed

25 minute talks. The conference proceedings will be published; manuscripts

submitted by participants will be carefully refereed to determine their

suitability for publication.

Limited funds are expected to be available to partially support travel/local

expenses for participants, in particular those from developing countries.

Those in need of such support are requested to indicate this at an early stage.

Documentation such as a CV and publications list should accompany these requests.

**Subject: Tutorials on Advanced Learning Methods**

Learning Methods for Prediction, Classification

Novelty Detection and Time Series Analysis

Cambridge, MA, September 20-21, 1996

Los Angeles, CA, December 14-15, 1996

Geoffrey Hinton, University of Toronto

Michael Jordan, Massachusetts Inst. of Tech.

A two-day intensive Tutorial on Advanced Learning Methods will be held

on September 20 and 21, 1996, at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, Cambridge, MA,

and on December 14 and 15, 1996, at Loews Hotel, Santa Monica, CA.

Space is available for up to 50 participants for each course.

The course will provide an in-depth discussion of the large collection

of new tools that have become available in recent years for developing

autonomous learning systems and for aiding in the analysis of complex

multivariate data. These tools include neural networks, hidden Markov

models, belief networks, decision trees, memory-based methods, as well

as increasingly sophisticated combinations of these architectures.

Applications include prediction, classification, fault detection,

time series analysis, diagnosis, optimization, system identification

and control, exploratory data analysis and many other problems in

statistics, machine learning and data mining.

The course will be devoted equally to the conceptual foundations of

recent developments in machine learning and to the deployment of these

tools in applied settings. Case studies will be described to show how

learning systems can be developed in real-world settings. Architectures

and algorithms will be presented in some detail, but with a minimum of

mathematical formalism and with a focus on intuitive understanding.

Emphasis will be placed on using machine methods as tools that can

be combined to solve the problem at hand.
