Date: Tue, 20 Jul 2004 14:28:46 -0700 (PDT)

**Subject: New Book on Optimization**

This is to inform you of the publication of a new paperback book on

optimization as follows:

Nazareth, J.L. (2004), An Optimization Primer: On Models, Algorithms,

and Duality, Springer-Verlag, New York, 120pgs., $29.95, ISBN 0-387-21155-1.

A brief synopsis and an abbreviated table of contents are attached.

Some additional detail can be found on the web at the Springer site

springeronline.com (search on keywords from the title or the ISBN) or

amazon.com and background information at www.math.wsu.edu/faculty/nazareth .

Feedback is welcome, and, if you like the booklet, please recommend it

to students and others as a way to open a window on optimization and

enliven standard course offerings/textbooks in the field.

Brief Synopsis of Book:

Optimization is the art, science and mathematics of finding the `best' member

of a finite or infinite set of possible choices, based on some objective

measure of the merit of each choice in the set. Three key facets of the

subject are:

* the construction of optimization models that capture the range of

available choices within a feasible set and the measure-of-merit of

any particular choice in the feasible set relative to its competitors;

* the invention and implementation of efficient algorithms for solving

optimization models;

* a mathematical principle of duality that relates optimization models

to one another in a fundamental way. Duality cuts across the entire

field of optimization and is useful, in particular, for identifying

optimality conditions, i.e., criteria that a given member of a feasible

set must satisfy in order to be an optimal solution.

This slim and inexpensive paperback provides a gentle introduction to the

above topics. It assumes very little in the way of mathematical background,

and its presentation strikes a balance between the specific details of a

representative set of models, algorithms, and their associated duality, on

the one hand, and the `big picture' of optimization as summarized by visual

schematics and associated commentary, on the other. It is aimed at college

students beginning their studies in optimization (and is also accessible to

college-bound students in science and mathematics in high schools), general

readers looking for an overall sense of the field of optimization, and

specialists in optimization interested in developing new ways of teaching

the subject to their students. In particular, it can be used as a front

end to complement and enliven any of the currently available texts in

optimization (network flows, linear and nonlinear programming) that treat

the subject more comprehensively.

Abbreviated Table of Contents:

Preface * Comments on Style and Print Size * Simple Motivating Examples *

A Quintessential Optimization Problem * Duality on Bipartite Networks *

A Network Flow Overview * Duality in Linear Programming * The Golden Age

of Optimization * An Algorithmic Revolution * Nonlinear Programming *

**Subject: Postdoctoral Position in Lyon**

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN COMPUTER SCIENCE, CRYPTOGRAPHY

AND HARDWARE ARITHMETIC OPERATORS, INRIA FRANCE

Within a collaboration with CEA (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique) / LETI

(Laboratoire d'Electronique Technologies et Instrumentation), the INRIA

project Arenaire offers a 12 months postdoc position.

** Objectives

Last years have seen major investments in public-key cryptography research.

Indeed, new commercial cryptographic products rely on very high ciphering

speed. Also, technology evolution with always faster processors for

breaking codes leads to consider longer keys for preserving security.

These two aspects show that efficiency of cryptographic algorithms is

crucial issue nowadays. The design of hardware implementations is an

important point for providing new solutions. In collaboration with several

other groups (ACI Cryptologie --- http://www.lirmm.fr/~bajard/ACI_CRYPTO

--- and ACI Securite Informatique --- http://www-rocq.inria.fr/codes/OCAM),

one of the research directions of the Arenaire project addresses the

question with the study of hardware dedicated arithmetic operators.

The object of this postdoctoral position is to participate to these

research with the design and implementation of number representations,

associated algorithms, and cryptographic functionalities. For instance it

may concern hardware realizations, on FPGA circuits, for finite fields and

elliptic curves arithmetic in the context of ciphering or code-based

digital signature. Our long-range objective, together with the development

of an experimental platform for best software and hardware solutions

comparizon, it to offer a complete hardware demonstrator usable by any

standard computer.

** Arenaire project.

Arenaire is a project of 16 researchers which aims at elaborating and

consolidating knowledge in the field of computer arithmetic. We contribute

to the improvement of the available arithmetic, at the hardware level as

well as at the software level, on computers, processors, dedicated or

embedded chips, etc. Reliability, accuracy, and speed are major goals that

drive our studies. We also take into account other constraints such as

power consumption, certification using formal proof techniques or

reliability of numerical software. Target arithmetics are fixed or

floating point format, interval arithmetic, finite fields arithmetic and

multiple precision.

** Skills and applications

Candidates should have skills in the domain of cryptographic algorithms.

Knowledge in hardware design, for instance using VHDL for FPGAs, will be

appreciated.

Interested candidates should contact or send files directly to

{Arnaud.Tisserand, Gilles.Villard}@ens-lyon.fr as soon as possible. The

final selection should happen end September 2004. Files must contain a cv,

a brief description of research work and recommendation letters.

M.Sc. Course in Complex Fluids: Modelling, Simulation and Industrial Applications

The Institute of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at The University of

Wales Aberystwyth has funding from the EPSRC for a Masters Training Package

in Complex Fluids: Modelling, Simulation and Industrial Applications. This

is a one- year modular M.Sc. course. The study of complex fluids involves an

interdisciplinary approach, which calls upon engineering, physical chemistry

and physics as well as mathematics. An understanding of the properties and

behaviour of these fluids is important for many industrial processes.

The course is run by the Applied Mathematics Group at Aberystwyth which is

recognized for having achieved the highest international standards of

excellence in the study of complex fluids. The Group is unique in the UK in

that it offers a unified approach to the mathematical modelling, computation

and analysis of complex fluids, supported by an experimental laboratory

devoted to their characterization and analysis The Applied Mathematics Group

enjoys close contacts with Industry including a number of collaborative

research projects. The industrial relevance of the course will be monitored

by a steering group of industrialists. The training aims to equip students

with the skills they require to meet the challenge of modelling and

simulating complex fluids in scientific and industrial flow applications.

These skills are essential in many areas of science and engineering

especially with the plethora of new materials being designed, produced and

processed today.

There are small number of studentships that remain to be filled this year.

Applicants should have, or expect to gain, a good honours degree or

equivalent in mathematics or any relevant scientific discipline. There is

also provision for applicants wishing to embark on the course part-time.

For further information please contact either Professor Tim Phillips (Tel:

+44 1970 622769, FAX: +44 1970 622777, email: tnp@aber.ac.uk) or Dr. Vass
