Numerical Linear Algebra Year

at

The University of Tennessee

and

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics of The University

of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK) and the Mathematical Sciences Section

of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are sponsoring a Numerical

Linear Algebra Year from September 1, 1987 to June 30, 1988. During

this period, leading researchers in numerical linear algebra and

related areas of scientific computation and computer science are

invited to visit the University and the Laboratory. Graduate students

performing research in these areas are also invited to participate.

New computer architectures are forcing researchers in scientific

computation generally, and those in numerical linear algebra in

particular, to study problems in communication networks, load

balancing, and related problems previously regarded as exclusively core

computer science problems. Thus, computer scientists whose research

interests are in these areas are especially invited to visit.

Although research and interest is expected to be ongoing in all areas

of numerical linear algebra during the entire ten months, different

topics will be emphasized during the year. Plans are to emphasize

systems of linear equations during the Fall Quarter (September -

December, 1987), eigenvalues and singular values during the Winter

Quarter (January - March, 1988), and least squares during the Spring

Quarter (April - June, 1988).

In addition to the substantial number of researchers at UTK/ORNL who

are actively involved in numerical linear algebra and related areas of

scientific computing, the following people have tentatively agreed to

visit UTK/ORNL during the Numerical Linear Algebra Year: A. Bjorck

(Linkoping), J. J. Dongarra (Argonne), G. H. Golub (Stanford), J. M.

Ortega (Virginia), C. C. Paige (McGill), B. N. Parlett (Berkeley),

R. J. Plemmons (N.C. State), M. A. Saunders (Stanford), D. Sorensen

(Argonne), G. W. Stewart (Maryland), C. Van Loan (Cornell) and D. M.

Young (Texas).

Visits ranging from two weeks to the entire year can be arranged. A

limited amount of financial support is available. For information,

prospective visitors should contact John Bradley, Head of the

Mathematics Department at UTK (email: bradley@tennessee.csnet), Jesse

Poore, Head of the Computer Science Department at UTK (email:

poore@tennessee.csnet), or Bob Ward, Head of Mathematical Sciences

at ORNL (email: ward@ornl-msr.arpa).
