From: Oleg Burdakov [log in to unmask]
Date: December 03, 2018
Subject: LMTR Suite for Unconstrained Optimization

We are happy to announce the first release of the LMTR suite for
unconstrained optimization. This package contains limited memory
trust- region and line-search algorithms implemented in MATLAB. The
algorithms are described in "On Efficiently Combining Limited Memory
and Trust-Region Techniques", Mathematical Programming Computation
(2017) Vol. 9, no 1, pp. 101-134 7.

To download the package, you may want to follow the link

The package contains the following algorithms:
- LBFGS_TR.m. Limited memory line-search algorithm L-BFGS that takes a
  trial step along the quasi-Newton direction inside the trust region;
- LBFGS_MTBT.m. Limited memory line-search algorithm L-BFGS based on
  the More-Thuente line search and the initial step is obtained using
- LBFGS_MT.m. Limited memory line-search algorithm L-BFGS based on the
  More-Thuente line search;
- LMTR_BWX_MS.m. Limited memory trust-region algorithm BWX-MS. It
  applies the More-Sorensen approach for solving the TR subproblem
  defined in the Euclidean norm. It is a modified version of the
  algorithm by Burke et al.;
- LMTR_EIG_MS_2_2.m. Limited memory trust-region algorithm EIG-
  MS(2,2) using the eigenvalue-based norm, with the More-Sorensen
  approach for solving a low-dimensional TR subproblem;
- LMTR_EIG_inf_2.m. Limited memory trust-region algorithm
  EIG(infinity, 2) using the eigenvalue-based norm, with the exact
  solution to the TR subproblem in closed form.

Subject: Software Release, MORLAB 4.0

Version 4.0 of the MORLAB, Model Order Reduction LABoratory, toolbox
has been released. The toolbox is a collection of MATLAB and Octave
routines for model order reduction of linear dynamical systems based
on the solution of matrix equations. The implementation is based on
spectral projection methods, e.g., methods based on the matrix sign
function and the matrix disk function.

The toolbox contains implementations for standard, descriptor and
second-order systems:
- Modal truncation (MT)
- Balancing related methods (BT, BST, FLBT, LQGBT, PRBT, BRBT, HINFBT,
- Hankel-norm approximation (HNA)
Also, matrix equation solvers based on the matrix sign function as
well as further subroutines for the analysis of linear dynamical
systems are provided in the MORLAB toolbox.

Subject: New Book, Convection-Diffusion Problems

Convection-Diffusion Problems: An Introduction to Their Analysis and
Numerical Solution
by Martin Stynes & David Stynes
AMS Graduate Studies in Mathematics Vol. 196

Many physical problems involve diffusive and convective (transport)
processes. When diffusion dominates convection, standard numerical
methods work satisfactorily. But when convection dominates diffusion,
the standard methods become unstable, and special techniques are
needed to compute accurate numerical approximations of the unknown
solution. This convection-dominated regime is the focus of the
book. After discussing at length the nature of solutions to
convection-dominated convection-diffusion problems, the authors
motivate and design numerical methods that are particularly suited to
this class of problems.

At first they examine finite-difference methods for two-point boundary
value problems, as their analysis requires little theoretical
background. Upwinding, artificial diffusion, uniformly convergent
methods, and Shishkin meshes are some of the topics
presented. Throughout, the authors are concerned with the accuracy of
solutions when the diffusion coefficient is close to zero. Later in
the book they concentrate on finite element methods for problems posed
in one and two dimensions.

This lucid yet thorough account of convection-dominated convection-
diffusion problems and how to solve them numerically is meant for
beginning graduate students, and it includes a large number of
exercises. An up-to-date bibliography provides the reader with
further reading.

the following tasks:
- Developing new, and extend and adapt existing scientific workflow
  methods to enable domain-specific solutions in computational
  nanoscience, in particular to improve usability and scalability of
  scientific workflow applications on HPC systems
- Disseminating knowledge about workflow methods to application
  scientists in form of tutorials and in several collaborative
  projects within the graduate school
- Deploying middleware (such as UNICORE, FireWorks, MongoDB)
