Subject: Roger Fletcher (1939-2016)

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Roger Fletcher,
an Emeritus Professor and Senior Research Fellow at the University of
Dundee. Roger was in the first rank of numerical analysts, working
mainly in linear algebra and optimization. He is particularly known
for his wide ranging work in optimization, where he made many highly
original and fundamentally important contributions, and numerous
methods bear his name. In addition to the development of methods,
Roger also produced several computer programs based on his work which
are widely used today. He collaborated widely, and supervised many
students and research fellows who went on to make their own major

The quality of his work was recognised by various honours. He was
awarded the Dantzig Prize in 1997 and the Lagrange Prize in 2006, both
by the Mathematical Optimization Society; he was elected a Fellow of
the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1988, a Fellow of the Royal Society
of London in 2003, a SIAM Fellow in 2009 and was awarded a Royal Medal
by the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2011.

Away from Mathematics, he was an enthusiastic swimmer, an accomplished
bridge player, and enjoyed walking in the Scottish hills. It was
during a walk from his holiday accommodation near Dornie on the west
coast of Scotland that Roger went missing, but the details of what
caused his death are still unclear.

Roger was a good friend to many, and splendid company at all times.
He leaves a wife Mary, and two daughters Jane and Sarah. He will be
greatly missed.

Subject: Quantitative Investigation of Random Processes

We recently started an investigation of random walks in the plane,
mostly from the point of view of their irregularities (for instance,
Khinchin's Law of the Iterated Logarithm). This has interesting
consequences for Industrial companies: if a sample is tested, how to
define it and how to exploit it. We are seeking collaboration, either
with individuals or with institutions, on these topics. This
collaboration may have three aspects:

- A better understanding of the underlying theories, with new
quantitative tools;

- The development of simulation software, in order to allow a better
practical understanding, but also a presentation to people who are
new in the field;

- A specific study of samples with industrial contents.

Subject: New Book, Infinite Matrices and their Recent Applications

Infinite Matrices and their Recent Applications
P.N. Shivakumar, K.C. Sivakumar and Y. Zhang
Springer International Publishing

This monograph covers the theory of finite and infinite matrices over
the fields of real numbers, complex numbers and over
quaternions. Emphasizing topics such as sections or truncations and
their relationship to the linear operator theory on certain specific
separable and sequence spaces, the authors explore techniques like
conformal mapping, iterations and truncations that are used to derive
precise estimates in some cases and explicit lower and upper bounds
for solutions in the other cases.

Most of the matrices considered in this monograph have typically
special structures like being diagonally dominated or tridiagonal,
possess certain sign distributions and are frequently nonsingular.
Such matrices arise, for instance, from solution methods for elliptic
partial differential equations. The authors focus on both theoretical
and computational aspects concerning infinite linear algebraic
equations, differential systems and infinite linear programming, among
others. Additionally, the authors cover topics such as Bessel’s and
Mathieu's equations, viscous fluid flow in doubly connected regions,
digital circuit dynamics and eigenvalues of the Laplacian.

Subject: Scientific Programmer Position (PDRA), Univ of Reading

The University of Reading is seeking a scientific programmer to help
develop and support users of the EMPIRE data assimilation

The post will be funded by the National Centre for Earth Observation
(NCEO) and will maintain the EMPIRE data-assimilation software
system. Data assimilation is the science of combining large numerical
models of a system with observations of that system in a statistically
sound way, exploring Bayes Theorem. The software system consists of an
efficient implementation of several state-of-the-art ensemble
data-assimilation methods, like Ensemble Kalman Filters and Particle
Filters. It allows for extremely efficient coupling with any numerical
geoscience model via MPI. The system needs to be developed further,
including more data-assimilation methods like efficient particle
filters and variational methods based on ensemble covariances,
automatic covariance generation tools, etc. The post is also expected
to be actively involved in the generation of new nonlinear more
efficient data-assimilation methods. Furthermore, the usefulness and
possibilities of a merger with the German PDAF system is to be
investigated. An important aspect of the post will be support for
present and future users of the system.

Subject: PhD Position, Numerics for Control, KU Leuven

At the Computer Science department of KU Leuven there is vacant PhD
position in the area of computational control and optimization of
large-scale interconnected systems.

The aim of the PhD project is to develop novel, decentralized control
schemes. For large networks it is expensive, if not impossible, to
control all systems individually, and centralized solutions are
infeasible. A the same time, the exiting theoretical framework of
decentralized control is not adapted toward complex systems where the
overall dynamics are largely determined by the interactions. Hence, a
shift of the control paradigm is needed. Besides computing optimal
controller parameters, we focus on optimizing the topology of the
network, that is, we determine which systems need to interact in order
to optimize a global objective in an efficient way. While the focus is
on development of computational methods, applications are foreseen in
robotics and sensor networks.

The PhD researcher will spend the two years at KU Leuven (Belgium) and
the final year at Ecole Centrale de Lille (France), and he/she will be
awarded a joint doctoral diploma upon a successful completion.

What do we offer? An interdisciplinary research project, a stimulating
environment at two European top universities, a balanced and
personalized PhD trajectory, with attention paid to transferable
skills development and exposure to both academic and non-academic
environments, and a highly competitive salary (Marie Sklodowska-Curie
program of EU). The position is in the framework of the project
UCoCoS. Eligibility criteria, mobility requirements, and application
instructions can be found at the website,
position ESR5. Deadline: September 1.

Image-based computer models to investigate mechanisms behind atrial

Principal supervisor:
Jichao Zhao, Senior Research Fellow,

Health Research Council of New Zealand. We have funding that will
cover tuition fees and provide support (an annual tax-free allowance
in the form of a fortnightly stipend) for multiple PhD students.

Multiple PhD positions are available for this project. The successful
candidates will work with Dr Jichao Zhao and the ABI cardiac group to
investigate mechanisms of atrial fibrillation by novel structural
analysis and image-based computer models. Funding is for three years
in the first instance, with possible extension for a further year.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common form of heart rhythm
disturbance and the ABI has developed a novel image-based computer
model of the atrial chambers that is providing new insight into the
factors that contribute to short-lived episodes of atrial
fibrillation. This project will extend the model to deal with atrial
fibrosis of persistent atrial fibrillation and is part of an
international collaboration.

The research topics of the multiple PhD students include: atrial
cellular model development and computer simulations; computer model
development and simulation studies of effective ablation strategy for
AF termination; development of signal processing tools for atrial
electrograms acquired in clinical and experimental settings;
development of efficient numerical solvers (finite difference) for
cardiac equations and investigate the impact of fibrosis on electrical

We require someone with a Masters' or a Bachelors' degree with Honours
(Second Class Honours, Division One or better) in Engineering, Physics
or Mathematics. Undergraduate experience in scientific computing,
imaging and physiology would be an advantage.
