**Subject: Symmetric Models**

Generally symmetric matrices are introduced in elementary math courses as

representing "symmetric phenomena" in the physical sciences, in economics

etc. Just look at the symmetry of the human body, ...

Having scratched my mathematician's brain for real world examples of such

processes (that can easily be presented to a sophomore class), I could on=

ly

think of discretizations of DEs via central differences, leading to

symmetric systems of linear equations.

Further search in a few dozen elementary Linear Algebra textbooks brought

up the above phrase on the importance of symmetric matrices a few times,

yet without any substantial concrete examples for their use.

Surely I must be brain dead or blind: what are, where can I find a couple

of significant elementary examples in physics, chemisty, ... that lead to

symmetric matrices in their description, both as linear systems of

equations and as eigenvalue problems. And how does a symmetric physical

problem interact with its symmetric matrix description? With an

unsymmetric one? Advantages of one over the other?

Thank you very much,

Yours

**Subject: Semidefinite Relaxations in a Branch and Bound Strategy**

We would like to use the Matlab package SDPpack (or other packages)

in a Branch&Bound strategy, to solve a mixed integer-and-continuous

program. In particular, we would like to use semidefinite programming

relaxations; solve them with SDPpack and add a B&B strategy.

Is anyone doing this, or something similar, yet? Is there any available

software? We would like to discuss formulations and implementations and,

if possible, share results.

We will share references obtained with all who are interested.

Thank you in advance for any help.
