Applications are invited for tenure track position(s) in COMPUTATIONAL

MATHEMATICS (Numerical Linear Algebra/Applied Numerical Linear Algebra/

Numerical PDE/Numerical Optimization). The applicants should have a Ph.D

(by Fall 1989) in mathematics,computer science or a related

field,commitment for teaching and research. The department has both master and

Ph.D programs and maintain a very high quality of research in several areas

of mathematics including computational mathematics. Please send a letter of

application along with a complete vita and arrange three letters of

recommendation to be sent to

A colleague has asked me to post the following:

University of Bristol, UK , Dept of Mathematics

Research Assistantship on Steep Unsteady 3-D Water Waves starting Oct '89.

This post will be for 3 years and involves numerical studies of 3-D water

waves using Boundary Integral Techniques.

For further information contact: Prof D.H.Peregrine, School of Mathematics,

University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TW, England. tel:(UK) 0272 303312.

Please do not contact me.

I am interested in knowing who has converted a nonlinear

least squares program to MATLAB language. I would appreciate

any leads that anyone has to give on these matters.

Many Thanks. S.I. Chou 619-553-2541

[Ed. note: Check if your MATLAB has a Nelder-Meade algorithm

in an M-file. Try "help nelder", or execute the "nademo" and

pick option #4. If you don't have it, let me know. Also,

Richard Behrens, a student of Bobby Schnabel at the University

of Colorado (na.schnabel), has written a suite of M-files for

solving nonlinear equations. Maybe they have some nonlinear

least squares stuff as well. Anybody else? --Cleve ]
