Subject: Symmetric Models

Generally symmetric matrices are introduced in elementary math courses as
representing "symmetric phenomena" in the physical sciences, in economics
etc. Just look at the symmetry of the human body, ...

Having scratched my mathematician's brain for real world examples of such
processes (that can easily be presented to a sophomore class), I could on=
think of discretizations of DEs via central differences, leading to
symmetric systems of linear equations.
Further search in a few dozen elementary Linear Algebra textbooks brought
up the above phrase on the importance of symmetric matrices a few times,
yet without any substantial concrete examples for their use.

Surely I must be brain dead or blind: what are, where can I find a couple
of significant elementary examples in physics, chemisty, ... that lead to
symmetric matrices in their description, both as linear systems of
equations and as eigenvalue problems. And how does a symmetric physical
problem interact with its symmetric matrix description? With an
unsymmetric one? Advantages of one over the other?

Thank you very much,


Frank Uhlig

Subject: Semidefinite Relaxations in a Branch and Bound Strategy

We would like to use the Matlab package SDPpack (or other packages)
in a Branch&Bound strategy, to solve a mixed integer-and-continuous
program. In particular, we would like to use semidefinite programming
relaxations; solve them with SDPpack and add a B&B strategy.
Is anyone doing this, or something similar, yet? Is there any available
software? We would like to discuss formulations and implementations and,
if possible, share results.

We will share references obtained with all who are interested.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Subject: Research Position at UMIST and Manchester University

Researchers with a PhD who would be interested in working with
Christopher Baker (Manchester University) and Ruth Thomas (UMIST,
Manchester) on a project in evolutionary functional differential
equations (delay and Volterra integro- differential equations) are
asked to email us both,

with a short curriculam vitae and a note indicating interests and
availability. The E-mail should please have
Baker/Thomas Research position
in the Subject line.

The funding is expected to cover about one year's employment on the
basic RA scale (details are negotiable); someone who is not a member
of the European Community would require a visa and work permit, so
nationality is an important detail. Ideally, we look for someone who
might start as soon as possible.

The research team is part of the inter-institutional MANCHESTER CENTRE
FOR COMPUTATIONAL MATHEMATICS, which has a group of 5 staff and 4 PhD
students interested in this area, in additional to numerical analysts
in other areas (ODEs, PDEs, Numerical Linear Algebra, Parallel
Computing, etc.).
