**Subject: INTLAB Version 8**

The new Version 8 of INTLAB, the Matlab toolbox for reliable

computing, is available. The main progress are two new toolboxes:

affari affine arithmetic toolbox

gradients using affine quantities

Hessians using affine quantities

Taylor models using affine quantities

fl k-bit IEEE 754 floating-point and interval arithmetic.

All quantities are, of course, supported for scalars, vectors and

matrices. Timing of many routines improved significantly compared to

Version 7.1. Some demo files can be viewed directly under

http://www.ti3.tuhh.de/intlab8/demos/html/index.html

INTLAB Version 8 is available from

The Computer Science and Engineering Department at Texas A&M offers a

postdoctoral position for research in high-performance GPU computing,

under the direction of Tim Davis (formerly at the University of

Florida). As a newly NVIDIA designated CUDA Research Center, we are

developing new algorithms for sparse direct methods that exploit one

or more GPUs. Priority will be given to candidates who have a record

of developing robust and reliable high-performance mathematical

software. A PhD is required. The salary is competitive. The

position is for one year with possible extensions to one or two more

years.

**Subject: PhD/Postdoc Positions, Tensor Methods, KU Leuven**

We are advertising two PhD or postdoctoral positions in the Group

Science, Engineering and Technology, Kulak, KU Leuven, Belgium and

the Stadius Center for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing and

Data Analytics, KU Leuven, Belgium (double affiliation).

Topic: Higher-order tensors or multi-way arrays are becoming

increasingly important in all branches of mathematical engineering.

A first research topic is the development of tensor-based methods

for signal processing, machine learning, system identification. A

second topic is the development of numerical linear algebra /

numerical optimization based algorithms for the computation of

tensor decompositions.

Profile: We are seeking outstanding candidates who have obtained a

master's or doctoral degree in mathematical engineering, computer

science, electrical engineering, mathematics or physics, with a

strong interest in the mathematical aspects of signal processing

and a good knowledge of linear algebra. Experience with numerical

mathematics, large-scale computation, parallel computation, data

mining and/or signal processing is a plus. Experience with tensor

techniques is not required.

The successful applicant will join a well-equipped and experienced

multidisciplinary research group. The position is initially for one

year and can be extended. The work will be supervised by Lieven De

Lathauwer

At the mathematics departments of University of Bergen and NTNU

(Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim) there are

openings for PhD positions (one in each institution) within the

project "Structure Preserving Integrators, Discrete Integrable Systems

and Algebraic Combinatorics". The project, which is funded by the

Norwegian Research Council is a collaboration between NTNU, University

of Bergen, and certain universities in Spain, United Kingdom,

Australia and New Zealand. The successful candidate will be offered a

three-year position.

The research project is about fundamental properties of numerical

methods for solving differential equations and contains a variety of

tasks that can be addressed by the PhD fellow hired in this

position. It includes the study of geometric properties of numerical

methods which are tailored for certain important classes of problems,

such as Hamiltonian systems, volume preserving systems, or integrable

systems. It may involve analysis of numerical schemes, design of new

and better solution methods, and an important part of the project is

to develop symbolic and numerical software.

The applicants are required to have an MSc-degree in mathematical

sciences or physics. Candidates completing their MSc-degree in the

Spring semester 2014 are encouraged to apply.
