Subject: Free LGO demo software available for education and non-profit research

Dear Colleagues,

We have made available an easy-to-use demonstration version of the
LGO global and local optimization solver suite. Solvable model sizes
are limited to 10 model variables and 10 model functions, in addition
to model variable bounds. This demo software can be freely used for
educational, non-profit research, and evaluation purposes.

Please contact us, if you wish to receive further information and/or
the software. The LGO demo software is currently available in two
versions: one of these can be used with the free Tiny C compiler (by
Fabrice Bellard), the other with the free C# compiler (by Microsoft).

Subject: Workshop on Optimization On Manifolds, New Orleans, Dec 2007

One-day pre-conference workshop on "Optimization On Manifolds" at the
46th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, New Orleans, LA, USA,
Tuesday December 11, 2007.

P.-A. Absil, Knut Hueper, Rodolphe Sepulchre

Additional Lecturers:
Uwe Helmke, Michel Journee, Shankar Sastry, Jochen Trumpf

The recent years have witnessed an increasing interest in the
development of efficient optimization algorithms defined on manifolds.
Applications abound in numerical linear algebra (eigenproblems),
statistical analysis (Principal and Independent Component analysis),
signal processing (blind source separation, subspace tracking), machine
learning (clustering), computer vision (pose estimation), to name a few.
Good algorithms result from the combination of insights from
differential geometry, optimization and numerical analysis.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a tutorial introduction to
this rich field of applied mathematics with a parsimonious selection of
topics in differential geometry and in numerical algebra, and with an
illustration of engineering problems where the theory is currently applied.

The details of the workshop can be found at
with a link to the conference and workshop web sites.

Pre-registration for the pre-CDC workshops is strongly encouraged.

Mathematical Aspects of Computer and Information Sciences (MACIS) is a
new series of conferences where foundational research on theoretical
and practical problems of mathematics for computing and information
processing may be presented and discussed. MACIS also addresses
experimental and case studies, scientific and engineering computation,
design and implementation of algorithms and software systems, and
applications of mathematical methods and tools to outstanding and
emerging problems in applied computer and information sciences. Each
conference focuses on two or three themes.

The themes for MACIS 2007 are:

MSc Applied Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing (AMMSC)
PhD Applied Mathematics

This advertisement is aimed at students who wish to consider January
entrance. Potential students aiming at distinctive MSc results with
migration to PhD studies in applied mathematics are invited to apply.
Fundings are not available for students at the MSc level. However
students successfully completed the MSc with distinctive results will
be selected to continue a PhD research programme, which will then be
fully funded, at the Centre for Numerical Modelling and Process
Analysis. Please refer to for a full
description of the research activities.

Deadline for application: 30/11/2007.
Application form from

The Masters programme is run by the Department of Mathematical
Sciences at Greenwich, within the School of of Computing and
Mathematical Sciences. This highly regarded department was ranked
10th in the 2007 UK departmental ranking
and the MSc is taught by members of the Centre for Numerical Modelling
and Process Analysis, an award winning research group.

This Masters programme aims to train and equip Honours graduates in
engineering, science or mathematics and suitably qualified
professionals, with the skills required to understand, and use, applied
mathematical modelling techniques and scientific computing technologies
in industry. Emphasis will be placed on modelling phenomena governed by
the physics of fluid flow, heat transfer, electromagnetics and solid
mechanics using CFD, FEA and other software tools. A core philosophy of
the programme is to introduce the students to the concept of
multi-physics modelling, where interactions between the governing
physics, and hence the relevant solution and software technologies, are
important. A strand of the programme is devoted to Fire and Evacuation
modelling, for candidates with Fire Safety degree background. Details of
available modules can be found at:

Entry requirements: A good Bachelor's degree in engineering, physics,
mathematics or a relevant related discipline. Those who have
substantial commercial or industrial experience but lack formal
qualifications should seek an interview with the programme leader.
