Subject: FLAME 1.0 Released

The first official release of libFLAME, the dense linear algebra library
that is one of the products of the NSF sponsored Formal Linear Algebra
Methods Environment (FLAME) project, will be available April 1, 2007,

libFLAME provides not only an alternative API for calling and
programming dense linear algebra libraries, but also FULL LAPACK
COMPATIBILITY for a number of the most commonly used routines from that
library. Performance is generally better than the LAPACK implementation
available from netlib, especially on SMP and multicore architectures.
For details on how to download, install, and link the library, please

In addition, we have found this API to be a valuable pedagogical tool.
Those interested in that aspect of the FLAME project and the libFLAME
library may wish to visit

Workshop: Time integration of evolution problems
September 12-15, 2007
Innsbruck, Austria

The Department of Mathematics of the University of Innsbruck organizes
in collaboration with the numerical analysis groups of the Universities
of Trieste and Udine the fourth workshop in series on numerical analysis
and scientific computing. This year, the topic will be time integration of
evolution problems.

The intention of the workshop is to provide a platform for exchanging
new ideas and results in the development of numerical methods for
evolution equations. The emphasis will be laid on the time integration of PDEs.
We try to cover both, theoretical and practical aspects, and we want to
bring together numerical analysts working in the field as well as PhD
students who want to start in this area.

If you are interested in attending the workshop, please send an e-mail
to one of the local organizers ( or

The Schools of Mathematics and Computer Science are jointly offering
an MSc programme in Mathematical and Computational Science, starting in
September 2007. It is good preparation for PhD level research based
on computation in any of the engineering and physical sciences, as
well as entering into industry and commerce.

The MSc covers a variety of mathematics, including numerical linear
algebra, dynamical systems, differential equations, and finite
elements, as well as computational science, including computer
architecture and large scale parallel computing. The programme offers
two pathways, allowing specialisation in either mathematics or
computational science. The MSc is twelve months in duration and
comprises 90 credits of taught modules plus a 90 credit research level

This MSc course is suitable for mathematically well qualified
graduates. Many of our students have an undergraduate degree in
mathematics, others come from physics and engineering backgrounds and
others join after working in industry for a time.
