The appointments are to be at the assistant-professor level and are to begin August 18, 2002. Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. within the mathematical sciences. Preference will be given to candidates with some postdoctoral experience. Candidates are expected to have strong potential in research (including the potential to attract external funding) and in teaching. They should also be able to contribute to the interdisciplinary outreach of the department and to support established research strengths. In numerical analysis, preference will be given to candidates with backgrounds in at least one of the following areas: numerical linear algebra, partial differential equations, inverse problems and optimization. In mathematical statistics, preference will be given to candidates with backgrounds overlaping with at least one of the following areas: mathematical finance, wavelet analysis, multivariate analysis, geometric measure theory, inference in stochastic processes. The Kent State Campus is a spacious, residential campus serving more than 20,000 students. It is situated in a small university town within 30 miles of the major metropolitan area of Cleveland. The Department of Mathematical Sciences is in the College of Arts and Sciences and houses programs through the doctoral level in pure and applied mathematics. It currently consists of 25 faculty. The department has an extensive computer network for faculty and student use. For further information about the department, please visit the web site http://www.math.kent.edu.

Cass Ave. Argonne, IL 60439-4844 ANNOUNCEMENT of POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in the LABORATORY FOR ADVANCED NUMERICAL SOFTWARE and the THEORETICAL CHEMISTRY GROUP at ARGONNE NATIONAL LABORATORY Argonne National Laboratory invites outstanding candidates to apply for a joint postdoctoral research position in the Theoretical Chemistry Group (http:chemistry.anl.gov/chem-dyn) (Chemistry Division) and Laboratory for Advanced Numerical Software (http:www.mcs.anl.gov/LANS/computational-science.html) (Mathematics and Computer Science Division). This position requires a strong background in numerical analysis, particularly with respect to preconditioning methods for iterative linear algebra problems (http://www.mcs.anl.gov/~minkoff/spam.html). Experience programming numerical algorithms in Fortran 90/95, C, or C++ is desired. Some knowledge of and programming experience in quantum chemistry is also highly desirable. The successful candidate will perform basic research in numerical algorithms for the iterative solution of eigenvalue problems, linear as well as nonlinear systems, and develop parallel software to implement these algorithms. We are interested in innovative approaches that may combine cascadic methods with iterative techniques that can scale to 100s of millions of degrees of freedom. The basic ideas behind the numerical techniques we will pursue partially originate in quantum chemistry and this research will be conducted in tandem with applications work in at least this area. More information on Argonne National Laboratory can be found at http://www.anl.gov/. The Mathematics and Computer Science Division has a vigorous research program in applied mathematics and computer science. The computational environment includes scalable parallel computers, a distributed systems laboratory, and a virtual environments laboratory. For more information, see http://www.mcs.anl.gov. Argonne is located in the southwestern Chicago suburbs, offering the advantages of affordable housing, good schools, and easy access to the cultural attractions of the city. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. not more than three years prior to the beginning of the appointment. The appointment is available immediately and is a one-year term (renewable). Interested candidates should email a resumé and the names and addresses of three references to either: Ron Shepard (shepard@tcg.anl.gov) or Mike Minkoff (minkoff@mcs.anl.gov). Argonne is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. ------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 11 Dec 2001 14:33:12 +0100 (MET) From: "Luc.Wuytack" Subject: Announcement of a book on the History of Numerical Analysis. New Book on: "Numerical Analysis: Historical Developments in the 20th Century" (eds. Brezinski C, Wuytack L.), North Holland, Amsterdam. This book brings together 16 papers dealing with historical developments, survey papers and recent trends in selected areas of numerical analysis, such as: approximation and interpolation, solution of linear systems and eigenvalue problems, iterative methods, quadrature rules, solution of ordinary -, partial - and integral equations. The papers are reprinted from the 7-volume project of the 'Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics' on 'Numerical Analysis 2000'. An introductory survey paper deals with the history of the first courses on numerical analysis in several countries and with the landmarks in the development of important algorithms and concepts in the field.
