We've just placed 6 variants of the AMD routine (but not AMD itself) in NETLIB (linalg/amd) and on my home page (http://www.cis.ufl.edu/~davis, also includes a tech report). The 6 codes differ only in how they compute the degree or its upper bound, so that different degrees can be compared in a consistent framework. These include: Routine Method AMDBAR our bound on the external degree. Computes an ordering of the same quality as the best minimum degree ordering codes. Asymptotically faster, and usually faster in practice. AMDHAT the bound on the external degree used in MATLAB's symmmd and colmmd routines. Usually as fast, or faster, than AMDBAR, but tends to compute worse orderings. AMDHAF a combination of AMDHAT and AMDEXA. Somewhat slower than AMDBAR, can sometimes produce worse orderings than AMDBAR. AMDATR our bound on the true degree. AMDEXA the exact external degree, as used in MMD, for example. AMDTRU the exact true degree, as used in MA27, for example. For the last two methods, the leading "A" (for "Approximate") is actually a mis- nomer, since they don't use approximations. Licensing restrictions apply. The method is described in "An approximate minimum degree ordering algorithm," SIAM J. Matrix Analysis and Applications (to appear), by Patrick Amestoy, Tim Davis, and Iain Duff. The AMD routine itself (similar to AMDBAR but better) is intended to appear as MC47B/BD in the next release of the Harwell Subroutine Library. ------------------------------ From: Rene Aid Date: Fri, 26 Jan 1996 18:24:22 +0100 Subject: Differential Equation in the Complex Domain I am looking for Fortran or C sofwares that can integrate Ordinary Differential Equations with a complex time : dy/dz = f(z,y) z, y and f complex valued variables.

If anyone is interested in avoiding this hassle and obtaining my data, respond to this message and include your e-mail address, and I'll send you more information. The data is in delimited text files with table titles and series descriptions included, and it can be opened and edited with any spreadsheet, statistical, or word processing program. For the cost of a diskette and mailing I will send you a demo diskette of quarterly current dollar and chain-weighted real GDP, GDP by type of product, and GDP by sector for the U.S., 1959Q1 to 1995Q3. This is the BEA's controversial new data that lowers the growth rate when compared to the old fixed-weight real GDP. If you don't mind waiting a couple of months, I plan to set up an FTP site and provide the GDP data there for free, along with other frequently used data- I'll post another message when it's ready. Thanks again for your interest. David Carrier NERDS 434 E.

Program Commitee: Iain Duff, RAL, England and CERFACS, France , Chair Dirk Roose, K.U.Leuven, Belgium, Vice-Chair Marian Vajtersic, Slovak Academy, Slovakia, Vice-Chair Jean Roman, LaBRI, Bordeaux, France, Local Chair Deadline: February 4, 1996 (paper); February 18, 1996 (electronic) Euro-Par is THE annual European conference in Parallel Processing. It merges the former PARLE and CONPAR-VAPP conferences, two major events of the field. The 1996 version will consist of a large panel of highly focused workshops on all aspects of parallel processing, from theory to practice, from academy to industry. They are expected to present the latest advances in their respective domains. They will be introduced by several high level tutorials of general interest. More than 20 workshops have been launched in parallel, ranging from 1/2 to 2 days. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS Series. Workshop #07: Parallel Numerical Algorithms The basis for most computational work in science and engineering are robust and efficient implementations of numerical algorithms. It is the aim of this workshop to study the design, development, and implementation of such algorithms on parallel architectures. Naturally there is much work and software for the solution of linear systems, both dense and sparse, but we are interested to attract papers and discussion in other areas of linear algebra (for example, eigenvalue and SVD calculations) and in other areas of parallel numerical computation, for example solving nonlinear systems, differential and integral equations, quadrature, mathematical transformations (e.g. FFT, wavelet transforms), and number-theoretical methods. We welcome contributions that reflect actual parallel computational models. Topics of interest include: Dense and sparse systems of algebraic equations Dense and sparse eigenproblems Matrix operations Mathematical transformations (e.g. FFT, wavelet transforms) SVD computations Optimization techniques Number-theoretical computing Differential equations Further information is available at URL http://www.ens-lyon.fr/LIP/europar96. It includes the list of all workshops. Please send all information requests and comments to europar96@lip.ens-lyon.fr. Register today on the Euro-Par'96 mailing list by sending us a mail!

This will be a follow-up to the discussions that took place on November 13th and 14th when 52 people attended a Workshop on Parallel BLAS and Related Interfaces at the University of Tennessee, and the Birds Of a Feather session that took place at the San Diego Supercomputer 95 meeting in December. The existing BLAS have proven to be very effective in assisting portable, efficient software for sequential and some of the current class of high-performance computers. We would like to investigate the possibility of extending the currently accepted standards to provide greater coverage of sparse matrices and provide additional facilities for parallel computing. The purposes of this meeting is to review the findings of the Workshop in November and the BOF at the Supercomputer 95 conference; and to begin a forum to develop calling sequences for a set of low-level computational kernels for the parallel and sequential settings, as well as standards for basic matrix data structures, both dense and sparse.
