Subject: NA Digest Status

NA Digest Community,

My apologies for the lagging state of NA Digest issues over the past
couple of months.  Due to many unforeseen issues, I have been unable
to keep up with a regular schedule of issues of the digest.

Starting with the current issue, the NA Digest will return to a weekly
schedule. To help with this, an Associate Editor will be appointed
soon to assist in the work involved in providing the digest to the
community. I understand the timeliness of the material in the NA
Digest to this community and will work to make sure this service to
the community will continue on schedule.

As a reminder, when submitting announcements, please use the web
submission form and follow the instructions given on that form:

I appreciate all of your patience and support.

Best Regards,
Danny Dunlavy

Subject: FlexiBLAS v1.0.0 release

It is our pleasure to announce the initial release of FlexiBLAS. We
do not provide yet another BLAS implementation in itself, but rather
present an easy to use method for switching between different BLAS
implementations while debugging or benchmarking other codes.

Feel free to check the current version at
and drop us a line if you have any comments or requests about it.

Further information on the realization can be found in LAWN 284:

The library is available under GPLv3. We have tested it in production
environments on several platforms and hope you will find it useful for
your research, as well.

Subject: Release 1.1 of librsb, Sparse BLAS Software Library 

Version 1.1 of the "librsb" library for high performance sparse matrix
computations based on the "Recursive Sparse Blocks" (RSB) format is

librsb is mainly for iterative methods implementors; it features cache
efficient, multithreaded sparse matrix-vector multiplication, and it
is especially effective in the symmetric and transposed variants,
which scale nearly as unsymmetric.

Main improvements of librsb-1.1 are:
- runtime autotuning of optimal threads / structure for sparse
   matrix-vector multiply and triangular solve; also available as
   an extension of the Sparse BLAS interface
- Fortran ISO C Binding interface in rsb.F90/rsb.mod is now 100%
   compatible with the C one in rsb.h
- slightly improved performance of matrix by vector / multi-vector
- significantly improved documentation
- collection of time spent in librsb routines now possible
- better debug options (e.g.: max allocatable memory, verbose
   operation of rsb.h or Sparse BLAS routines on rebuild / request )

On a wide sample of matrices, the new autotuning feature has been
observed to improve execution speed up between a few and a few hundred

Subject: Release of Alberta 3.0

It is my pleasure to announce the official release of version 3.0 of
the finite element toolbox Alberta.

Further information and a list of new features compared to the release
series 2 can be found here:

There is now also a mailing list dedicated to Alberta FEM which can be
found here:

Alberta is a stand-alone FEM-Toolbox. Its hierarchical mesh
implementation is also used as one of the possible grid-backends of
dune-grid. Version 3 of Alberta will probably be the last release
because we are switching to Dune-Fem for current and future projects.

Subject: Deadline Ext, QPLIB2014

Quadratic programming problems have received an increasing amount of
attention in recent years, both from theoretical and practical points
of view. However, a library specifically conceived for this class of
problems does not exist yet. For this reason we feel the need to
define a standard test set to compare the performance of different
generic quadratic optimization software and to evaluate the
computational performance of newly developed algorithms and solution
techniques.  We are looking for interesting and challenging problems
from all fields of Global Optimization, Operations Research and
Combinatorial Optimization, ideally those which have been built to
model real life problems.

We are interested in benchmarking instances with the following
characteristics: Generic Quadratic objective function; Binary, integer
and continuous variables; Generic Quadratic and/or linear constraints.

Please submit by email to the following address: [log in to unmask]

The submitted instances must be in one of the following formats:
GAMS/AMPL/LP/MPS. The submission of instances should be accompanied by
a few lines of description with the following information:
- authors/institution/company providing the instance
- references (optional)
- optimum value or upper and lower bounds (optional)
- any additional relevant information (optional)

Subject: Fast Direct Solvers for PDEs, USA, Jun 2014

Online application is now open, with deadline April 15, for the
following: CBMS-NSF conference: Fast Direct Solvers for Elliptic PDEs
June 23 - 27, 2014, at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

This conference is motivated by the recent rapid progress on
developing "direct" (as opposed to "iterative") solvers for elliptic
PDEs, which in a single sweep construct an approximate solution
operator. Conference themes include: (1) structured matrix
computations that exploit analytic structure in discretized
differential and integral equations; (2) new randomized methods for
accelerating certain linear algebraic computations and reducing
communication bottlenecks; and (3) the interplay between direct
solvers and high-order discretization techniques that allow the
solution of PDEs to ten digits of accuracy or more. Applications
include materials modeling, wave scattering, and fluid flow.

The conference will be anchored by 10 summer-school style lectures
delivered by Per-Gunnar Martinsson (Univ. of Colorado), with hands-on
tutorial afternoon coding sessions to explore the algorithms.
Additional lectures will be given by Adrianna Gillman (Dartmouth),
Alex Barnett (Dartmouth), Leslie Greengard (Simons Foundation and
NYU), and Vladimir Rokhlin (Yale).

The conference is funded by the NSF, and financial support (including
lodging, meals, and some travel expenses) is available for up to 30
participants. Graduate students, junior researchers, and members of
under-represented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

The conference is followed by a weekend workshop on analysis-based
fast solvers, June 28 - 29, at the same location.

ICERM Topical Workshop on: Challenges in 21st Century Experimental
Mathematical Computation,

Over the past 25 years, experimental mathematics has developed as an
important additional arrow in the mathematical quiver. Many
mathematical scientists now use powerful symbolic, numeric and graphic
(sometimes abbreviated "SNAG") computing environments in their
research, in a remarkable departure from tradition. While these tools
collectively are quite effective, challenges remain in numerous areas,
including: (a) rapid, high-precision computation of special functions
and their derivatives; (b) user- customizable symbolic computing; (c)
graphical computing; (d) data-intensive computing; and (e) large-scale
computing on parallel and GPU architectures (including algorithm and
software design for such systems).

This workshop will convene mathematical and computer scientists who
create or exploit these tools, together with computational tool
developers and commercial vendors of mathematical software, to
exchange approaches and extend the state of the art in the field.

Computational Physiology: Models, Tools, and Techniques for Cardiac
Applications, Oslo, Norway, 16-25 June 2014, La Jolla, CA, USA
4-8 August 2014

This summer school is based upon the graduate course “Mathematical
models in medicine” including targeted research lectures and a
practical project portion. This course teaches the fundamental
principles of mathematical modeling in cardiac electrophysiology and
mechanics. The main focus of the course is on modeling the cell scale
biophysical processes responsible for electrical activation and
contraction of the muscle cells.  However, a modeling framework for
tissue scale electrical signal propagation is also presented. Although
the main focus is on heart physiology, many of the derived models have
a general applicability in biomedical modeling. Since the final part
of the course will be a small research project, the students will also
be introduced to required and useful numerical methods and software
tools for computational modeling based on differential equations.

The applicant pool is open to interested graduate (Master’s and
PhD-level) students; students from third-party institutions as well as
both host Universities are encouraged to apply.  Course enrollment
will be limited to 10 participants in its inaugural year of
2014. Simula will offer stipends designed to fully cover costs
associated with travel and accommodation to/from Oslo and/or San Diego
to all accepted applicants.

The goal of the workshop is to present latest research in how hardware
and software (yet) unconventional for HPC is or can be used to reach
goals such as best performance per watt. UCHPC also covers according
programming models, compiler techniques, and tools.  Thus, suggested
topics for papers include, but are not limited to the following:
- Innovative use of hardware and software unconventional for HPC
- Heterogeneous and reconfigurable computing for HPC
- HPC applications or visualizations in connection with HPC on GPUs
  (GPGPU), using GPUs embedded on processor dies
- Cluster/Grid solutions using unconventional hardware, e.g.  clusters
  of game consoles, nodes using GPUs, Low Power/Embedded Processors,
  MPSoCs, new many-cores from Intel/ARM designs, etc
- Work on and use of new programming models and paradigms needed to
  support unconventional hardware, and hybrid/hierarchical
  combinations with more conventional systems. Examples are OpenACC,
  OpenCL, Cilk+, and task-based approaches
- Performance modeling, analysis and tools for HPC with unconventional
- Big data and/or deep learning using unconventional HPC

Subject: ICERM Comp Aspects of the Langlands Program, USA, Sep-Dec 2014

ICERM Semester Program on "Computational Aspects of the Langlands Program"
(September 9, 2015 - December 4, 2015)
Providence, RI, USA

In the late 1960s, Robert Langlands discovered a unifying principle in
number theory providing a vast generalization of class field theory to
include nonabelian extensions of number fields. This principle gives
rise to a web of conjectures called the Langlands program which
continues to guide research in number theory to the present day. For
example, an important first instance of the Langlands program is the
modularity theorem for elliptic curves over the rational numbers, an
essential ingredient in the proof of Fermat's last theorem.

Despite its many successes, the Langlands program remains vague in
many of its predictions, due in part to an absence of data to guide a
precise formulation away from a few special cases. In this thematic
program, we will experiment with and articulate refined conjectures
relating arithmetic-geometric objects to automorphic forms, improve
the computational infrastructure underpinning the Langlands program,
and assemble additional supporting data. 

During the semester we will focus on three specific aspects of the
Langlands program.  First, we will look at elliptic curves over number
fields and genus 2 curves over the rationals and will consider their
relationship to modular forms. Second, we will consider computational
aspects of modular forms in higher rank. Specifically, we will examine
K3 surfaces and their connections to modular forms on orthogonal
groups. Our third topic concerns analytic aspects of L-functions,
building upon and complementing the algebraic, arithmetic, and
geometric data.
