Subject: Eugene Isaacson (1919-2008)

Eugene Isaacson,(1919-2008) was one of the pioneers of modern
numerical mathematics. Like most Jewish students of mathematics and
physics of his age, he was a graduate of City College in New York. He
entered the graduate program in mathematics at New York University and
received his PhD under K O Friedrichs in 1949.

His dissertation was on water waves on sloping beaches; in it he
derived an explicit formula for the solution in case the angle of the
slope is a rational multiple of pi. It turned out that Hans Lewy had
also derived an explicit but different formula for the solution. Lewy
showed that the equality of the two formulas is the law of quadratic
reciprocity. Since the solution is unique, this gave yet another proof
of the law of quadratic reciprocity.

His subsequent research concerned the numerical solution of
differential equations; his book written in collaboration with Herb
Keller was one of the leading texts of its time. He had 16 PhD
students, many of whom became prominent in research on numerical

In the mid fifties the Atomic Energy Commission had placed the
supercomputer UNIVAC at the Courant Institute. The AEC wanted to know
if the Grand Cooley Dam were breached by sabotage, would the resulting
flood wave on the Columbia river inundate the Hanford reactor. They
originally asked the Corps of Engineers for an answer, but the Corps
was not up to the task; so they asked the Courant Institute to do the
calculation using the UNIVAC. The mathematical formulation was done by
Jim Stoker, an expert on water waves, and the numerical solution of
shallow water equation was accomplished under the leadership of Gene
Isaacson. The result was that the Hanford reactor was safe; the
numerical method developed by Isaacson was subsequently adapted by the
Corps of Engineers.

For many years Isaacson was editor of the journal "Mathematical Tables
and aids to Computations", which later morphed into "Mathematics of

Even after his retirement Gene was a faithful attendant until a couple
of years ago of the seminar on numerical methods, and the applied
mathematics seminar. He will be missed.

An interview with Gene Isaacson is available in the SIAM ORAL
HISTORY. In addition, there is a film "The Mathematician and the
River" which was made by the Educational Testing Service.

Subject: Global CO2 Model

A new release of an Introductory Global CO2 Model is now available. The
model is intended to quantitatively introduce the CO2 problem at a basic
level, with particular emphasis on ocean acidification which has not
received the same attention as global warming and climate change, but
could be just as important.

The model is based on seven reservoirs: upper atmosphere, lower
atmosphere, long lived biota, short lived biota, ocean upper layer,
ocean deep layer and marine biosphere. Through the assumption of
perfect mixing in each reservoir, the model consists of just seven,
first order, initial value ODEs that are integrated numerically,
typically over the interval 1850 (preindustrial) to 2100.

We have revised the model so that it now has the following features:
(1) Recalibration to more accurately reflect the current measured
atmospheric CO2 concentration.
(2) Carbon fluxes that are difficult to estimate are circumvented.
(3) Basic ocean chemistry has been added that highlights:
(3.1) Projections of ocean acidification.
(3.2) CaCO3 dissolution (as in coral, for example).
(4) Projected anthropogenic CO2 emissions can be conveniently studied.

The model is available as a set of Matlab routines on a CD, with related
documentation, through a request directed to Please
provide a postal mailing address. A small package will be sent by US
First Class mail or international air mail.

Subject: Bound constrained optimization (ASA_CG 1.0)

The code ASA_CG version 1.0 is now available at the following web site:

This code implements an active set algorithm for solving a bound
constrained optimization problem of the form:

min f (x) subject to lo <= x <= hi

The code utilizes the gradient projection algorithm and
the conjugate gradient algorithm, as implemented in
the code CG_DESCENT, to approximately solve the active set
subproblems. The active set algorithm was initially developed in the
following paper:

W. W. Hager and H. Zhang, A new active set algorithm
for box constrained optimization, SIAM Journal on
Optimization, 17 (2006), pp. 526-557.

CG_DESCENT version 3.0, which is embedded in the ASA_CG,
code is also being released at this time. Interfaces
to the CUTEr testing environment (
are provided with both ASA_CG and CG_DESCENT.

Second Announcement and Call for Papers

Important Dates:
June 1 - Deadline for submission of titles and abstracts
June 13 - Authors will be notified of accepted papers
June 15 - Deadline for early registration
July 1 - Deadline for application for travel support for
students and PDFs

In recent years, standard scientific workstations have become faster and
more powerful and they now typically include multiple processors and
high resolution displays. At the same time, the use of computer
simulations and mathematical modeling has become an essential component
of research in high-profile critical areas, such as computational
biology, computational medicine and computational finance. The purpose
of this conference is to bring together developers of numerical software and
users in different application areas to explore the challenges and
implications that are involved in developing, implementing and
distributing effective numerical software that is easy to use and
matches the requirements and expectations of the diverse community of
potential users.

If you are coming from out of town, we recommend that you book your
accommodation early, since the conference overlaps with a major festival
(Caribana) in Toronto on the August 2-4 long weekend.
