From: Craig Douglas 
Subject: Various

Due to the end of the term, this issue is late.  There was also some confusion
about the last issue's addendum, so I am re-running the extra items here.  My
apologies for the duplication for those who have received them twice.

  ---> As always, MGNet always needs new material.  Please contribute! <---

Updates to the Copper Mountain Conference on Iterative Methods or preprints
from other relevant conferences are welcome.

Many of you have noticed that the Yale repository of MGNet is still not
accessible.  An effort is underway there to rectify this.  Please continue to
use www.mgnet.org or one of the mirrors instead.

From: "Randolph E. Bank" 
Subject: Pltmg8.0

PLTMG 8.0 is a package for solving elliptic partial differential equations in
general regions of the plane.  It is based on continuous piecewise linear
triangular finite elements, and features adaptive local mesh refinement,
multigraph iteration, and pseudo-arclength continuation options for parameter
dependencies.  The package includes an initial mesh generator and several
graphics packages.  Full documentation is provided in PLTMG:  A Software
Package for Solving Elliptic Partial Differential Equations - Users' Guide 8.0
(ISBN 0-89871-409-5), available from SIAM Publications.  PLTMG is provided as
Fortran (and a little C) source code, in both single and double precision
versions.  The included X-Windows GUI uses the default Athena Widget set, and
makes calls to standard library routines of the X-Windows system, which must
be loaded along with the PLTMG software.  PLTMG is available from Netlib and
MGNet.

    Editor's Note: The previous version (7.2) is still on MGNet, but will be
    -------------  deleted eventually.  You can find version 8.0 either in
                   www.mgnet.org/mgnet-codes.html or in mgnet/Codes/pltmg.

Subject: Copper Mountain 98 paper

This is to inform you that I put an abstract and a ps-file of my Copper
Mountain 98 paper into the directory ... at ftp www.mgnet.org.  The paper
differs slightly from the one printed in the preliminary proceedings.

From: Yair Shapira 
Subject: Copper Mountain 98 Paper and Note

I put on mgnet an update for my Copper98 paper (amg.ps).

I also put there a note which I wrote recently (note.ps).  Although I didn't
talk about it formally in Copper, I wonder if you could put it on the virtual
proceedings as well.

Thanks and regards,

Yair

From: Clemens-August Thole 
Subject: Job at the GMD

At the GMD - German National Research Center for Information Technology a
postdoc position available in its Institute SCAI - Institute for Algorithms
and Scientific Computing (http://www.gmd.de/SCAI) from summer 1998.  Objective
of the work is a collaboration with the Italian federal research center
CNR/CNUCE (Pisa) on the improvement of the structural analysis code NOSA,
which has been developed by CNUCE for the simulation of historic buildings.
Parallel, adaptive and hierarchical sparse matrix solvers will be integrated
into NOSA and new solvers will be developed.

From: Jinchao Xu 
Subject: Postdoc position at CCMA of Penn State

Contingent upon final approval of funding, we will have a postdoc position
available from Fall 1998 in the Center for Computational Matheamtics and
Applications of Penn State University (http://www.math.psu.edu/ccma/).
Applicants must have a strong background in numerical methods for partial
differential equations (especially finite element methods) and programming
experiences.  Good knowledge on multigrid methods is desirable.

Interested applicants should send application materials ASAP to 

        Professor Jinchao Xu
        Department of Mathematics
        Pennsylvania State University                 
        University Park, PA 16802             

Email applications (sent to xu@math.psu.edu) are encouraged.  Email message
may include application materials or a letter indicating an URL address for
accessing other detailed application materials.

Penn State is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and especially
encourages applications from women and minorities.
