Parallel Random Number Generator Library

We are happy to announce the Beta release of SPRNG: a Scalable

Parallel Random Number Generator Library. (It can be used for the usual

serial random number generation too.)

These libraries are callable from C, C++, and FORTRAN programs. We

have ported the generator to the following machines: Cray T3E, Convex

Exemplar, SGI Power Challenge array, Origin 2000, IBM SP2, HP and SUN

workstations, PC (Linux). It should be easy for users to port it to

other machines too.

We have also included a test suite. The five random number generators

included in our library have been subjected to some of the largest

unclassified random number tests ever performed, with up to 10^12

random numbers in certain tests.

Please see our home page:

Preliminary announcement

INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON

NUMERICAL METHODS FOR PARTIAL

DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

Marrakech, Morocco

September 7--11, 1998

We are intending to organize an international congress on numerical methods

for partial differential equations in Marrakech, Morocco. All the

numerical aspects related to the subject will be covered: finite differences,

finite elements, spectral methods, multigrids, multilevel methods,

nonlinear Galerkin methods and inertial manifolds, solution of systems of

linear equations, preconditioning, etc. We are in the process of contacting

invited speakers.

Participants will be accomodated in a 4 star hotel comparable to the best

European or American hotels. A special reduced price has been negotiated

(around 70 USD a day for full board or even less). Registration fees will be

kept low.

Marrakech can be reached by plane from Casablanca (one hour). Casablanca

has direct connections to major European cities and to New York and Montreal.

In September,the weather in Marrakech is very nice and not too hot (27

degrees Celsius) and the congress could be combined with a visit of other

places in Morocco such as Ouarzazate at the doors of the desert, the Atlas,

Rabat (4 and a half hours by train), Fez or Meknes.

Those interested in participating have to send a message for preliminary

registration as soon as possible to

Parallel Numerical Linear Algebra

A research position is available in parallel scientific computing at

the University of Tennessee. The research will include development

of parallel numerical linear algebra algorithms and of scalable parallel

libraries. This position offers an exceptional opportunity for innovative

research in scientific computing on advanced architectures, and will involve

participation in collaborative projects such as the ScaLAPACK effort,

http://www.netlib.org/scalapack/ and the Center for Research on Parallel

Computation, http://www.crpc.rice.edu/CRPC/.

Candidates must have a PhD in computer science, mathematics, or a

related discipline. Expertise in parallel computing and object oriented

programming is required, and expertise in scientific computing is highly

desirable. A strong research capability in numerical methods, with

emphasis on numerical linear algebra techniques for solving large-scale

problems, is essential.

The position is for a period of one year, and will be renewable subject to

availability of funds and satisfactory performance. Additional benefits of

the position include a competitive salary, travel opportunities, access to

state-of-the-art computational facilities (including both parallel

architectures and high-performance workstations), and collaborative research

opportunities in an active research program in advanced scientific computing.

The position is available immediately. Applications will be accepted

until the position is filled.

Parallel and Distributed Computing

A postdoctoral research position is available in parallel and distributed

computing at the University of Tennessee. The University of Tennessee is

engaged in collaborative research projects to develop high level interfaces

for parallel programming on heterogeneous networks of computers. Among the

systems being developed are

NetSolve (http://www.cs.utk.edu/netsolve/),

SNIPE (http://www.cs.utk.edu/~fagg/SNIPE/), and

extensions to PVM (http://www.epm.ornl.gov/pvm/pvm_home.html).

These projects involve experimental research leading to the

development of software tools to support general purpose concurrent

computation over wide-area heterogeneous networks.

The position requires experience in parallel and network computing.

Familiarity with scientific computing and parallel architectures is

also desired. Benefits of the position include a competitive salary,

travel opportunities, access to state-of-the-art computational facilities

(including both parallel architectures and high-performance workstations),

and collaborative research opportunities in a very active research

program in advanced scientific computing.

Responsibilities include designing, prototyping, testing, maintaining, and

documenting computer systems related to network computing.

Inquiries should be directed to:
