Focusing on high-end modeling and simulation of earth's climate,
Climate Modeling for Scientists and Engineers presents observations
about the general circulations of the earth and the partial
differential equations used to model the dynamics of weather and
climate and covers numerical methods for geophysical flows in more
detail than many other texts. It also discusses parallel algorithms
and the role of high-performance computing used in the simulation of
weather and climate and provides supplemental lectures and MATLAB
exercises on an associated Web page. 

This book is intended for graduate students in science and
engineering. It is also useful for a broad spectrum of computational
science and engineering researchers, especially those who want a brief
introduction to the methods and capabilities of climate models and
those who use climate model results in their investigations.

Subject: New Book, Programming Projects in C

Announcing the September 3, 2014, publication by SIAM of:

Programming Projects in C for Students of Engineering, Science,
and Mathematics, by Rouben Rostamian

2014 / xvi + 393 pages / Softcover / 978-1-611973-49-5 / List
Price $69.00 / SIAM Member Price $48.30 / Order Code CS13

Written as a tutorial on how to think about, organize, and implement
programs in scientific computing, this book achieves its goal through
an eclectic and wide-ranging collection of projects. Each project
presents a problem and an algorithm for solving it, and the reader is
guided through implementing the algorithm in C and compiling and
testing the results. It is not necessary to carry out the projects in
sequential order. The projects contain suggested algorithms and
partially completed programs for implementing them to enable the
reader to exercise and develop skills in scientific computing; require
only a working knowledge of undergraduate multivariable calculus,
differential equations, and linear algebra; and are written in
platform-independent standard C. The Unix command-line is used to
illustrate compilation and execution.

Subject: Mathematics of Data Analysis in Cybersecurity, USA, Oct 2014

The goal of this workshop is to bring mathematicians and cybersecurity
practitioners together to outline the key challenges in the
mathematics of cybersecurity data analysis. The expected outcome of
the workshop will be a roadmap for investment in specific mathematical
topics that will directly impact the advancement of the science of

Mathematicians have long been involved in information security through
cryptography, and thus algebra and number theory. But modern cyber
security is a much larger field, and the perspectives and
methodologies of other parts of the mathematical sciences have been
only rarely been brought to bear. Given the complexity and dynamics of
cyberspace it is essential to have a formal scientific basis for the
field of cybersecurity. Indeed, a variety of sources have called for
the creation of a "science of cybersecurity", and mathematical methods
should play a critical role in such a science.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together mathematical
scientists and cybersecurity practitioners with expertise in several
main areas, including especially high dimensional data analysis and
cryptography, to establish a road map for bringing more mathematicians
into the field of cybersecurity. Sharing our visions of near and far
term goals of the field will be the highlight of the conference.

computational rheology.

The research of Professor Germann’s fluid dynamics group focuses on
the rheology of viscoelastic fluids that are of industrial relevance
(e.g. wormlike micelles, polymeric solutions). The reason for the
unusual rheological properties of viscoelastic fluids is their
microstructural dynamics. To establish a more fundamental
understanding of viscoelastic fluids, her research group investigates
the relationship between their rheology and their microstructure. The
research approach combines thermodynamic modeling and numerical
simulation with laboratory experiments. More information about
Professor Germann’s fluid dynamics group can be found at

We are looking for talented individuals who are excited about
research. The applicant should hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent)
in applied mathematics or physics. He/she should have a solid
background in fluid mechanics. The project will mainly involve the
