Subject: OR Resources Online, IFORS, New Contributions

The aim of the IFORS Developing Countries Online Resources page is to
offer the OR worker all publicly-available materials on the topic of
OR for Development. It also aims to provide a venue for people who are
working in the area to share their completed or in-process work, learn
from others, and stimulate comments and discussions on the work.
Regarding IFORS Developing Countries OR resources website, its regular
updates - and your possible submission of "free" (not copyright

"Operational Research" (OR) is the discipline of applying advanced
analytical methods to help make better decisions. By using techniques
such as problem structuring methods and mathematical modelling to
analyze complex situations, Operational Research gives executives the
power to make more effective decisions and build more productive

The International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS; is an almost 60-year old organization which is
currently composed of 51 national societies. Regional Groups of IFORS
are: ALIO (The Latin American Ibero Association on Operations
Research), APORS (The Association of Asian-Pacific Operational
Research Societies), EURO (The Association of European Operational
Research Societies), NORAM (The Association of North American
Operations Research Societies). IFORS conferences are taking place
every three years. IFORS 2020 will be celebrated in Seoul, South Korea

Subject: New Book, Complex Variables and Analytic Functions

Complex Variables and Analytic Functions: An Illustrated Introduction
By Bengt Fornberg and Cecile Piret

This is the first primary introductory textbook on complex variables
and analytic functions to make extensive use of functional
illustrations. Aiming to reach undergraduate students entering the
world of complex variables and analytic functions, the authors utilize
graphics to visually build on familiar cases and illustrate how these
same functions extend beyond the real axis. The book covers several
important topics that are omitted in nearly all recent texts,
including techniques for analytic continuation and discussions of
elliptic functions and of Wiener-Hopf methods. It presents current
advances in research, highlighting the subject's active and
fascinating frontier.

Fast Direct Solvers for Elliptic PDEs
By Per-Gunnar Martinsson

This is the first textbook to detail the active field of fast direct
solvers, presenting fast solvers from the point of view of integral
equation formulations, which enable unparalleled accuracy and speed in
many applications. Fast Direct Solvers for Elliptic PDEs provides an
accessible introduction to boundary integral equation methods, the
fast multipole method, fast direct solvers for both dense and sparse
linear systems, and randomized algorithms for factorizing
matrices. Written with an emphasis on mathematical intuition rather
than theoretical details, the text is richly illustrated and provides
pseudocode for all key techniques.

Introduction to Optimization and Hadamard Semidifferential Calculus,
Second Edition
By Michel C. Delfour

This second edition builds upon its prior edition's foundation,
showcasing new material linked to convex analysis and nonsmooth
optimization. It presents a modern treatment of optimization and
Hadamard semidifferential calculus while remaining at a level that is
accessible to undergraduate students. Appropriate as both a textbook
and a reference, it includes exercises related to problems in such
fields as engineering, mechanics, medicine, physics, and economics
along with answers.

Subject: New Book, Practical Optimization

Practical Optimization
By Philip E. Gill, Walter Murray, and Margaret H. Wright
Classics in Applied Mathematics 81

In the intervening years since this book was published in 1981, the
field of optimization has been exceptionally lively. This fertility
has involved not only progress in theory but also faster numerical
algorithms and extensions into unexpected or previously unknown areas
such as semidefinite programming. Despite these changes, many of the
important principles and much of the intuition can be found in this
Classics version of Practical Optimization. This book provides model
algorithms and pseudocode, presents algorithms in a step-by-step
format, and contains a wealth of techniques and strategies that are
well suited for optimization in the twenty-first century and
particularly in the now-flourishing fields of data science, "big
data," and machine learning.

CUQI, Computational Uncertainty Quantification for Inverse Problems

These two positions deal with goal-oriented UQ where the objective is

Both the PhD and the postdoc will be responsible for integrating goal-
oriented UQ in a general computational platform for UQ for inverse
problems. This involves a combination of theoretical considerations,
development of computational methods and algorithms, and evaluation of
results on selected inverse problems, e.g., sound source reconstruc-

TU and WIAS Berlin with its counterpart at the University of
Oxford. The advertised positions will be based in Berlin and will
offer ample opportunities to interact also with members of the Oxford
team, most notably in a 6-months exchange.

Embedded in a truly international environment, the IRTG students will
get excellent research training in a structured programme focussing on
challenges at the mathematical foundations of Stochastic Analysis as
well as on challenges arising from its various applications, e.g., in
physics, biology, finance or data science. The combined expertise from
the Berlin and Oxford groups will provide a significant breadth in
depth and fertile ground for our students' ambitious research ideas.

Successful candidates will have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in
Mathematics (or a closely related field), strong knowledge of
stochastic analysis, and feel eager to engage in the exchange of ideas
with the teams in both Berlin and Oxford.

Deadline for applications is January 20, 2020 (for now).

Please see for the
official job ad and for instructions how to apply.

Our IRTG webpage offers more information on
the Berlin-Oxford IRTG 2544.
