Subject: New book, The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods

The Mathematical Theory of Finite Element Methods
Series: Texts in Applied Mathematics , Vol. 15
Brenner, Susanne C., Scott, L. Ridgway
3rd ed., 2008, XVIII, 402 p. 50 illus., Hardcover
ISBN: 978-0-387-75933-3

This book develops the basic mathematical theory of the finite element
method, the most widely used technique for engineering design and analysis.

The third edition contains four new sections: the BDDC domain decomposition
preconditioner, convergence analysis of an adaptive algorithm, interior
penalty methods and Poincara\'e-Friedrichs inequalities for piecewise W^1_p
functions. New exercises have also been added throughout.

The initial chapter provides an introduction to the entire subject,
developed in the one-dimensional case. Four subsequent chapters develop the
basic theory in the multidimensional case, and a fifth chapter presents
basic applications of this theory.

The book has proved useful to mathematicians as well as engineers and
physical scientists. It can be used for a course that provides an
introduction to basic functional analysis, approximation theory and
numerical analysis, while building upon and applying basic techniques of
real variable theory. It can also be used for courses that emphasize
physical applications or algorithmic efficiency.

Subject: New book, Numerical Approximations Methods for Elliptic Boundary...

Numerical Approximation Methods for
Elliptic Boundary Value Problems
Finite and Boundary Elements
Steinbach, Olaf
2008, XII, 388 p., Hardcover
ISBN: 978-0-387-31312-2

Although the aim of this book is to give a unified introduction into finite
and boundary element methods, the main focus is on the numerical analysis of
boundary integral and boundary element methods.

Starting from the variational formulation of elliptic boundary value
problems boundary integral operators and associated boundary integral
equations are introduced and analyzed. By using finite and boundary elements
corresponding numerical approximation schemes are considered.

This textbook may serve as a basis for an introductory course in particular
for boundary element methods including modern trends such as fast boundary
element methods and efficient solution methods, as well as the coupling of
finite and boundary element methods.

PARA 2008 is coming up on May 13-16.

See our great program at:

We will have over 190 presentation and panels as well as 5 tutorials.

We even offer a pilot program with free daycare/private schooling at
Trondheim International School for children of participants, so bring
your family! The program can accomodate children from all cultures.
Cotact me (Anne Elster) as soon as possible so we can arrange
translator support, if needed. School classes are in English, but a
special program will be designed around those who sign up.

If you register this week by Thursday May 8 using PayPal, we will also
let you attend for the our early registration fee of NOK 4000, below
PARA'04 early registration costs! Lunches and banquet included!

Note also that we have some really great tutorials on May 13. Thanks
to our sponsors, these are are all offered at below cost of the lunch
for NOK 200 for half-day and NOK 320 (ca USD 64) full day tutorial if
you register by May 8. The full-day tutorial is similar to the one
given by the same instructors for USD 100 (student rate) - USD 485
(earl reg. rate) at SC'07, so this is truely a great deadl! It is the
first time this is offered outside the US! New information re. the

Subject: DOE ACTS Workshop, Berkeley, Aug 08

Ninth Workshop on the DOE Advanced Computational Software Collection
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, August 19-22, 2008

Building Robust, Scalable and Portable Software

The Advanced CompuTational Software (ACTS) Collection comprises a set of non
commercial tools mainly developed at the Department of Energy's (DOE)
laboratories, sometimes in collaboration with universities. These software
tools aim to simplify the solution of common and important computational
problems, and have substantially benefited a wide range of applications and
fields in computational sciences. These benefits are accounted not only for
applications running efficiently on high performing computing environments but
also realizing computation that would not have been possible otherwise.
Nowadays, with the introduction of hardware technologies such as of
multi-core, the use of software libraries is key in the development of high
end software applications. This is because libraries provide a level of
software abstractions in which the robustness, scalability and portability can
be easily and reliably passed into the application codes across a large class
of computer platforms.

The four-day workshop will include a range of tutorials on the tools currently
available in the collection, discussion sessions aimed to solve specific
computational needs by the workshop participants, and hands-on practices using
NERSC's state-of-the-art computers. The workshop is opened to computational
scientists from industry and academia. Registration fees are fully sponsored
by the DOE's Office of Science. In addition, DOE will sponsor travel expenses
and lodging for a limited number of graduate students and postdoctoral
fellows. For more information on the workshop, please contact Tony Drummond at
(510) 486-7624 or Osni Marques at (510) 486-5290.

Workshop on Computational Optimization (WCO'08)
Wisla, Poland, October 20-22, 2008
in the framework of IMCSIT 2008 - International Multiconference
on Computer Science and Information Technology

Many real world problems arising in engineering, economics, medicine and
other domains can be formulated as optimization tasks. These problems are
frequently characterized by non-convex, non-differentiable, discontinuous,
noisy or dynamic objective functions and constraints which ask for adequate
computational methods.

The aim of this workshop is to stimulate the communication between
researchers working on different fields of optimization and practitioners who
need reliable and efficient computational optimization methods.

We invite original contributions related with both theoretical and practical
aspects of optimization methods.
