**Subject: Teletraffic Analysis of Telecommunications Systems**

Introducing the Software Package TELPACK** (TELetraffic PACKage):

There has been substantial recent developments in teletraffic analysis of

modern telecommunications systems. Among these, numerical treatment of

structured Markov chains of M/G/1 and G/M/1 type, QBD processes, etc. are

important examples. These Markov chains arise very naturally in the analysis of

a wide variety of such systems.

Recently, Akar and Sohraby have used a new "invariant subspace" based approach

for the solution of such chains which in most cases of interest has shown a

marked improvement in CPU time and accuracy over the conventional methods. The

new algorithms have been implemented in C and put together in a software

PACKAGE by Anuj Agrawal (MS Thesis). Major modifications were made to the

original software by Dr. Nihat C. Oguz. TELPACK provides a simple user

interface which is currently in a TEXT format. In most of the cases (e.g.,

M/G/1 Type Chains), it also gives the option to the user to employ number of

other existing approaches. TELPACK is menu driven and contains help files and

many example files to assist the user for setting up the input data files, etc.

It also has the option of producing a PLOT associated with the stationary

distribution of the chain. As output, TELPACK provides moment information,

tail behavior, prob. of empty system, etc.

TELPACK uses the LAPACK routines (LAPACK Manual: E. Anderson and Z. Bai and

C. Bischof and J. Demmel and J. Dongarra and J. Du Croz and A. Greenbaum and

S. Hammarling and A. McKenney and S. Ostrouchov and D. Sorensen)

We hope that TELPACK will be a useful tool for research, education and

development. This is how to get TELPACK:

Godunov's Method for Gas Dynamics:

Current Applications and Future Developments

May 1-2, 1997, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Hosted by: W. M. Keck Foundation Laboratory for Computational Fluid Dynamics,

Department of Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering, and others.

S E C O N D A N N O U N C E M E N T

A SYMPOSIUM HONORING S. K. GODUNOV

On May 3, 1997, the Russian numerical/applied mathematician S. K. Godunov

(Institute of Mathematics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia)

will receive an honorary degree from the University of Michigan, for

"tremendous contributions [...] made in the field of computational

fluid dynamics." To amplify this festive event, an international

symposium will be held on May 1-2, on the subject of Godunov-type

numerical methods, used world-wide to compute continuum processes

dominated by wave propagation. The title of the meeting is

"Godunov's method for gas-dynamics:

current applications and future developments;"

the venue is the Franc,ois-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) Building, home of the

Department of Aerospace Engineering and located in the College of

Engineering on the University's North Campus.

Chairperson of the Symposium is Prof. Bram van Leer (Aerospace

Engineering)

You are cordially invited to participate in the symposium.

For those who also wish to attend Prof. Godunov's graduation

during the Commencement Excercises in the Michigan Stadium,

a limited number of good seats are available.

The purpose of the conference is to give an overview of the current

state of development and use of Godunov-type methods in science

and engineering, and to offer a perspective of their future

development and use. In the context of the symposium, Godunov-type methods

are loosely defined as non-oscillatory finite-volume schemes

that incorporate the solution (exact or approximate)

to Riemann's initial-value problem, or a generalization of it.

"Generalization" means that, for example, multidimensional fluctuation

splitting is included.

and practitioners on the application of visualization techniques in mathematics

as will as on mathematical concepts in visualization. It is the second

symposium in a series of workhops bringing together mathematicians and experts

from scientific visualization.

The themes of the workshop include:

o applications in differential geometry and partial differential equations

o algorithmic aspects of adaptive and hierarchical techniques in space and time

o time control of animated objects and corresponding algorithms

o algorithmic representation of objects for display, storage and exchange

o new visualization techniques for mathematical structures

o integration of visualization with symbolic and numerical computation.

2 Research Positions at Vienna University of Technology

The Institute for Strength of Materials at

Vienna University of Technology (Head: Prof. H. Mang)

invites applications for two positions as research assistants in

the area of numerical simulations of tunnel excavations.

Recently, a joint research initiative (JRI) on

NUMERICAL SIMULATION IN TUNNELLING

has been approved by the Austrian Fund for Scientific Research.

Seven scientists from 3 Austrian universities will

participate in the JRI.

The following two individual projects will be performed at the

Institute for Strength of Materials at the Vienna University of Technology:

Project I: Computationally efficient algorithms for

3D simulations of tunnel advance considering large deformations

and localized failure

(Head of the project: Univ.Doz. Dr. G. Meschke)

This project will provide efficient computational

algorithms for 3D finite element simulations

of tunnel excavations considering the effect of large

deformations and localized failure

in addition to the inelastic material behavior of soil

and of shotcrete.

Project II: Development and application of a constitutive model

for shotcrete

(Head of the project: Prof. Dr. H. Mang, Ph.D.)

Based on experimental evidence, improved constitutive models

for the consideration of the thermochemomechanical behavior

of shotcrete within the framework of finite element analyses

will be developed.

Both positions are open for Ph.D. Students and/or Post-Docs.

We are looking for individuals with a M.sc. (Dipl.Ing.) or

a Ph.D. (Dr.Ing.) in Civil Engineering or Engineering Mechanics.

The positions are meant for work leading towards a Ph.D.

or a habilitation.

The successful candidates must possess a strong interest in

computational mechanics. Experience in material modelling

and finite element technology is highly desireable.

Both positions are purely research-oriented. no teaching activities

are required. The positions offer the unique possibility

to cooperate within a team of experts in different pertinent areas

connected with tunnelling and numerical analysis.

The candidates will have access to excellent computational facilities.

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Applicants

should send a concise curriculum vitae to

Dr. Guenther Meschke or Prof. Herbert Mang, Ph.D.

Research Associate Position in High-Performance Parallel Computing

UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE

Joint Institute for Computational Science

The Joint Institute for Computational Science of the University of Tennessee

and Oak Ridge National Laboratory invites applications for a full-time

esearch associate position in high-performance parallel computing to begin

Spring/Summer 1997 or when position is filled.

The research associate is expected to initiate, coordinate, and participate

in collaborative interdisciplinary computational research projects with

research faculty affiliated with JICS. The candidate is also expected to

participate fully in the educational activities of JICS.

The position requires a MS or PhD in computer science or in a closely

related area and experience with parallel computing applications using a

variety of high-performance computing architectures. Applicants are

expected to demonstrate a high level of research accomplishment in

parallel computing and an active interest in educational innovation.

Familiarity with interdisciplinary areas of computational research is

desired. Applications from minorities are encouraged. Experience in systems

administration is a plus.

Benefits of the position include a competitive salary commensurate with

background and expertise, access to state-of-the-art computational

facilities, teaching opportunities, and many varied collaborative research

opportunities.

Applicants should send a vita and a statement specifically addressing

research and educational interests and experience in high performance

computational science. Application materials should be sent by March 14,

1997 , preferably by e-mail to

jics@cs.utk.edu, Subject: Postdoc Application,

or by regular mail to the address given below.

Additional inquiries should be directed to:
