Nash [log in to unmask] Date: May 15, 2018 Subject: histoRicalg: Documentation and Transfer of Knowledge about Algorithms For approximately the last year I have been developing ideas for ways to document and transfer knowledge of older algorithms used by R. These are mainly in Fortran, but some are in C, with the original codes possibly in other programming languages. My efforts were prompted by possibility of bugs in codes, which could be either from the original programs or else the implementations. Two examples in particular -- in nlm() and in optim::L-BFGS-B -- gave impetus to the project, which I call histoRicalg. The R Consortium has awarded this project some modest funding. A preliminary web-site is at https://gitlab.com/nashjc/histoRicalg. As a first task, I am hoping to establish a "Working Group on Algorithms Used in R" to identify and prioritize issues and to develop procedures for linking older and younger workers to enable the transfer of knowledge. Expressions of interest are welcome. While active membership of the Working Group is desirable, given the nature of this project, I anticipate that most members will contribute mainly by providing timely and pertinent ideas. Some may not even be R users, since the underlying algorithms are used by other computing systems and the documentation effort has many common features. We will also need participation of younger workers willing to learn about the methods that underly the computations in R. ------------------------------------------------------- From: Peter Jimack [log in to unmask] Date: May 15, 2018 Subject: SIAG/CSE Early Career Prize I'd like to bring to your attention that the call for nominations is open for the SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering (SIAG/CSE) Early Career Prize: http://www.siam.org/prizes/nominations/nom_siag_cseearlycareer.php The prize is awarded every two years to one post-PhD early career researcher in the field of computational science and engineering for outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions to the field.

In addition to being a fully integrated FEA multiphysics toolbox, and interfacing with the FEniCS FEM solver and external mesh generators such as DistMesh, GiD, Gmsh, and Triangle, the highlight of the new version is introducing a fully integrated and cross-platform OpenFOAM CFD GUI interface for MATLAB and GNU Octave. The new OpenFOAM MATLAB CFD interface allows one to conveniently setup both laminar and fully turbulent incompressible Navier-Stokes CFD problems all within an easy to use graphical user interface (GUI). Featuring built-in CAD tools and (STL) CAD file import, automatic mesh generation (with automatic 2D to 3D mesh conversion and extrusion for 2D problems), FEATool to OpenFOAM case file conversion, solver selection and control, as well as solution import with postprocessing and visualization. As with all the FEATool MATLAB GUI functionality, models can also be saved and exported as m-file CLI functions where custom scripting and support for all MATLAB and Octave functions and toolboxes is supported. With the added support for the popular OpenFOAM CFD solver and FEniCS, high-performance multiphysics, multi-simulation, and CFD modeling can now be all be conveniently done within a single software interface. Please visit https://www.featool.com and https://www.featool.com/matlab-cfd-toolbox for more information. ------------------------------------------------------- From: Matthias Maier [log in to unmask] Date: May 14, 2018 Subject: deal.II Version 9.0.0 released Version 9.0.0 of deal.II, the object-oriented finite element library awarded the J.

D. CONTE AND CARL DE BOOR 2017 / xxiv + 456 pages / softcover / ISBN 978-1-611975-19-2 / List Price $76.00 / SIAM Member Price$53.20 / Order Code: CL78 Keywords: elementary, algorithmic, numerical analysis, scientific computation This book provides a thorough and careful introduction to the theory and practice of scientific computing at an elementary, yet rigorous, level, from theory via examples and algorithms to computer programs. The intended audience is upper-division undergraduates in engineering, mathematics, and the sciences, including computer science. The book has served well as a text book. The original FORTRAN programs have been rewritten in MATLAB and now appear in a new appendix and online, offering a modernized version of this classic reference for basic numerical algorithms. About the Authors: Samuel D. Conte was a Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at Purdue University. Starting in 1962, he led the Purdue Department of Computer Science for its first 17 years. Prior to that, Professor Conte served as the manager of the Math and Programming Department of the Aerospace Corporation, taught at Wayne State University, and was head of the Mathematics and Programming Departments at TRW Inc. Carl de Boor is presently Professor emeritus of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Affiliated Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. His early work at the Mathematics Department of GM Research at Warren, MI led to his lifelong preoccupation with spline functions. He is the author of A Practical Guide to Splines and co-author of Box Splines. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Medal of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science in recognition of his contributions to scientific computing. ------------------------------------------------------- From: Frank Kunkle [log in to unmask] Date: May 14, 2018 Subject: New Book, Mathematical Models and Their Analysis MATHEMATICAL MODELS AND THEIR ANALYSIS BY FREDERIC Y. M. WAN 2018 / xx + 402 pages / softcover / ISBN 978-1-611975-26-0 / List Price $74.00 / SIAM Member Price$51.80 / Order Code: CL79 http://bookstore.siam.org/cl79/ A great deal can be learned through modeling and mathematical analysis about real-life phenomena, even before numerical simulations are used to accurately portray the specific configuration of a situation. Scientific computing also becomes more effective and efficient if it is preceded by some preliminary analysis. These important advantages of mathematical modeling are demonstrated by models of historical importance in an easily understandable way. The organization of Mathematical Models and Their Analysis groups models by the issues that need to be addressed about the phenomena. The new approach shows how mathematics effective for one modeled phenomenon can be used to analyze another unrelated problem. For instance, the mathematics of differential equations useful in understanding the classical physics of planetary models, fluid motion, and heat conduction is also applicable to the seemingly unrelated phenomena of traffic flow and congestion, offshore sovereignty, and regulation of overfishing and deforestation. The formulation and in-depth analysis of these and other models on modern social issues, such as the management of exhaustible and renewable resources in response to consumption demands and economic growth, are of increasing concern to students and researchers of our time. Audience: This book is recommended for advanced undergraduates, early graduate students, or anyone with a strong background in calculus and ordinary differential equations, for use in mathematical modeling and introduction to applied mathematics courses. About the Author: Frederic Y. M. Wan has been a Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Irvine since 1995, where he was also Chancellor for Research and Dean of Graduate Studies, 1995-2000. He has previously held positions on the mathematics faculty at MIT and as the founding Director of the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at the University of British Columbia, President of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM), President of the Canadian Applied Mathematics Society (CAMS/SCMA), and founding Chair of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington. He was Chair of the Committee of Pure and Applied Mathematics of the Natural Science and Engineering Council of Canada and Director of the National Science Foundation's Division of Mathematical Sciences, the only person to have held both positions. He is a fellow of AAM, ASME, AAAS, and SIAM. ------------------------------------------------------- From: Emmanuil Georgoulis [log in to unmask] Date: May 17, 2018 Subject: NA for Deterministic and Stochastic Differential Equations, Greece, Jul 2018 The Department of Mathematics of the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) is organizing a summer school on: Numerical analysis for deterministic and stochastic differential equations The school will take place between10--13 July 2018, at the Zografou Campus of the NTUA in Athens, Greece.
