Helsinki Workshop on Symbolic and Numeric Computation
Workshop on Symbolic and Numeric Computation Otaniemi, Finland 24.-28.5. 1993 University of Helsinki Helsinki University of Technology The Academy of Finland The Rolf Nevanlinna-Institute Centre for Scientific Computing OBJECTIVES The Helsinki Workshop on Symbolic and Numeric Computation was organized in May 1991 for the first time. The aims of the workshop were then and are now to focus on combined symbolic and numeric methods for scientific and engineering problem solving with possibly the use of high performance computing environments and visualization techniques. We will try to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and introducing projects that develop or use some combination of such tools. PROGRAM The workshop is divided into two independent parts: - An AXIOM course given by Grant Keady (Mon-Tue) - The "actual" workshop (Wed-Fri) STARTING TIMES The Axiom course starts at 11.00 on Mon 24.5. Auditorium G The workshop program starts at 11.00 on Wed 16.5. Auditorium G LIST OF SPEAKERS AND TOPICS - Mike Dewar, University of Bath Manipulating Fortran code in AXIOM, and the AXIOM-NAG Link Demonstration on current version of the Axiom-NAG Link Demonstration of IRENA - Andre J.P. Heck, CAN Expertise Centre, Amsterdam Computer Algebra in Industry: Applications in Optics - Jarmo Hietarinta, University of Turku Solving huge sets of nonlinear equations - Grant Keady, University of Western Australia Axiom course Fortran code production for Argument SubPrograms in the AXIOM-NAG link - Mike Monagan, ETH Zurich A demonstration of the new Maple On automatic differentiation - Seppo Pohjolainen, Tampere University of Technology Topics in Control theory -- Presentation and demo using Mathematica - Alexei Serebrovski, Russian Academy of Sciences Stochastic control theory: Applications of computational environments - Mika Seppala, University of Helsinki Computational problems in the theory of Riemann surfaces and algebraic curves - Mark Sofroniou, University of Loughborough An Efficient Numeric/Symbolic Environment With Code Optimization Using Mathematica Demonstration of the above environment - Esko Valkeila, University of Helsinki On the computer generation of Poisson Processes - Ilpo Vattulainen, CSC On pseudo-random numbers - Pirkka Peltola, Espoo-Vantaa Institute of Technology Solving systems of nonlinear equations by a Maple-APL-Fortran- combination - Richard Eller, TMT-Team Oy Easy and fast matrix number crunching with data from any source - Robert Silhol, Universite de Montpellier Some concrete computational problems in Riemann Surfaces - Heikki Apiola, Helsinki University (of Technology) UNIX-ESC, An overview - Marko Laine, University of Helsinki Combining Matlab with Maple and Fortran libraries - Juha Haataja, CSC A set of Symbolic-numeric tools for handling some problems on Dirichlet polygons - Juha Haataja, CSC Information services for mathematicians - a review of using computer networks - Jussi Rahola, CSC Visualization in mathematical research - Jussi Rahola, CSC What is new in Matlab 4.0 There is room for a couple of more presentations. DEMONSTRATIONS InterCall Demonstration on current version of the Axiom-NAG Link Demonstration of IRENA ESC - Environment for Scientific Computing Sophroniou's Mathematica-based numeric-symbolic environment Software demonstrations by sponsors MAPLE-demonstration On Thursday May 27 Mike Monagan, ETH Zurich, will give a demonstration of Maple, especially its new version 2 on a Sun workstation. This demonstration will be in the auditorium G at 16.15. Both the demonstration and the informal cocktail-party in the lobby of the auditorium are sponsored by Tiedesofta. SOFTWARE exhibitions and demonstrations by the sponsors are present.
