**Subject: Low-discrepancy Sequences**

Dear friends:

Two weeks ago, I posted an inquiry about low-discrepancy sequence, and

got many helpful reply. Also, I have been asked to summarize my

search results on this Net. Currently, I am still in the process of

searching (free) C++ software (we do not have FORTRAN compiler). But I

am posting what I know so far.

First, I would like to thank everybody who replied and particularly

those friends who gave me direction where to search.

One of the websites is

www.netlib.org

Another website was suggested by Prof. Hickernell of HongKong Bapist

University, www.math.hkbu.edu.hk/qmc/software.html. There are FORTRAN

codes available.

The message posted in this issue of NA-Digest by Prof. Traub contains

an excellent source of information. Prof. Traub's group has developed

a software called FINDER (I am not sure about the programming

language) which can generate all three type of quasirandom sequences.

The website address is

www.cs.columbia.edu/~traub

The software is available to academic researchers (assumed free of

charge), but is not free for financial people. Based on the results in

the RISK article "Beating the Monte-Carlo", FINDER performs very well

over the pseudo-random MC.

Another source is perhaps the home pages of Profs. Mark Broadie and

Paul Glasserman of Columbia University.

However, I did not find the theoretical background material at above

mentioned sites. A good reference is "Uniform Random Numbers : Theory

and Practice" by S. Tezuka. Perhaps you need to go to a university

library to find it.

I have written a C++ program using Faure sequence and tested it on

Asian option pricing with dimension ranged 10 - 40. I did not observe

significant superiority of QMC over MC. My guess is that it is due to

either that the problem is too simple for QMC to show its advantage

or that FINDER's generalized Faure sequence is superior to my simple

Faure sequence algorithm (described in "Quasi-Monte Carlo methods in

Numerical Finance", by C. Joy, P. Boyle and K.S. Tan).

Merry Christmas every one.

**Subject: Parallel Computing Classes at the San Diego Supercomputer Center**

The National Partnership for Advanced Computational

Infrastructure (NPACI) will offer Parallel Computing classes at the

San Diego Supercomputer Center in January 20-22, 1999.

Detail information and web based registration forms

are available at http://www.npaci.edu/Training.

These classes provide an overview of parallel computing,

architecture of NPACI parallel machines, MPI function calls

and development of parallel application codes using MPI,

single PE optimization techniques on RISC machines, parallel

mathematical libraries such as ScaLAPACK and PETSc,

parallel debugging and performance monitoring tools.

These classes will teach how to develop grid based

and Monte Carlo parallel applications using MPI function calls.

Attendees are provided accounts on NPACI parallel machines and

hands on labs are conducted each day where attendees compile,

run and parallelize example codes, and measure performance of codes after

implementing single PE optimization techniques. After attending this three

day class, attendees are expected to be able to develop parallel

applications in their field of science.

We encourage you to visit the web page and register for these classes if

you are interested.

**Subject: Faculty Positions at University of Leicester**

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER

NEW STAFFING INITIATIVES

The University is mounting an initiative to further develop and strengthen all

research groups in the Department. This initiative will last beyond the year

2000. In 1999, the Department will aim to fill

(1) a Chair in Pure Mathematics,

(2) a Chair in Applied Mathematics

(3) two new lectureships in Computer Science.

In 1999-2000, the Department will advertise new lectureships in each of pure

and applied mathematics. In 2000-2001 it is expected that at least 2 further

lectureships will be created.

Within applied mathematics, the strength of the research group is in numerical

analysis, with staff working in multivariate approximation theory, finite

element methods for pdes and spectral problems in pdes and odes. The group is a

a lively one, with many collaborations with staff in nearby Universities

(Warwick, Oxford, Cambridge, Loughborough, Nottingham, Birmingham and all the

London colleges for example are all within 1.5 hours travelling time by road or

rail).

We would welcome applications for the Chair in Applied Mathematics which either

strengthen our research focus in numerical analysis, or which enlarge it to

take in some neighbouring area, still within the broad remit of applied

analysis. The key requirement is an outstanding research record.

People familiar with the US system might find it helpful to know that a UK

lectureship is the equivalent of a US tenure track assistant professorship,

while a Chair is roughly equivalent to a named research chair in a US

department. (The proportion of UK faculty holding the post of Chair, for

example, is much smaller than the number of US faculty hold the post of full

professor, and is not to be confused with the US concept of chair of a

Department.)

Details of the above positions can be found at the Department's WEB page:

http://www.mcs.le.ac.uk

The closing date for applications is February 1st. 1999.

**Subject: Faculty Position at Wichita State University**

Joint Tenure-Eligible Position Announcement

The Wichita State University Department of Mathematics and Statistics

and the University's National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR)

announce a joint position in Scientific Computing at the rank of

Assistant or Associate Professor.

The position will be probationary and tenure eligible in the Department

of Mathematics and Statistics and is contingent on available funding.

The starting date is August, 1999. A PhD in Mathematics or a closely

related field with research in numerical analysis and scientific

computing in areas of interest to NIAR and the Mathematics

Department is required along with excellent research potential and

a strong commitment to teaching. Familiarity with scientific programming

languages and/or experience with large scale scientific and engineering

codes is required.

The successful candidate will be half time in the Department of

Mathematics and Statistics and will teach one course per semester in

numerical analysis, scientific computing, or related areas of

mathematics and will assist in the development of an interdisciplinary

program in scientific computing and related research. A major part

of the candidate's teaching responsibilities will be to assist in

the introduction of scientific computing tools into the classroom

at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The other half of the

candidates time will involve research at the NIAR on large scale computing

projects. Research areas of particular interest to NIAR and the

Mathematics Department include: the numerical solution of partial

differential equations; computational fluid dynamics, electromagnetics,

MHD, and acoustics; computational aspects of optimal control and aeroacoustics;

computational aspects of modeling and detection of damage in

engineering materials; and the numerical solution of inverse problems.

NIAR has strong ties to the Wichita aircraft industry. The candidate's

involvement in industry and federally funded research will be strongly

encouraged. Start-up funding for two months summer salary and support

for equipment, travel, and graduate students in the PhD programs in applied

mathematics and engineering is anticipated for the first two years.

The application deadline is February 15, 1999 and monthly until the position

is filled. Send an application, detailed resume, and arrange to have three

letters of recommendation sent by February 15, 1999 to:
