Preprint: On GPU Acceleration of Common Solvers for (Quasi-) Triangular Generalized Lyapunov Equations


October 15th, 2014
Martin Köhler und Jens Saak have extended the already optimized methods for the solution of matrix Lyapunov equations with (quasi) triangular coefficient matrices to support accelerator devices. Thus, they have shown the main problems of using an accelerator device in the Bartels-Stewart algorithm and presented mathematical solutions for these problems.

Events: Workshop and meeting of GAMM activity group "Dynamics and Control"


September 24th, 2014
This years second meeting of the GAMM activity group on "Dynamics and Control" will take place together with the GMA activity groups 1.30 and 1.40 as usual on a bi-anual basis. The meeting is scheduled September 22 to 26 at the Momentum hotel Anif near Salzburg. The talks of the GAMM activity group will take place on Wednesday 24th and contain contributions by Peter Benner and Norman Lang. Also Jens Saak gives a talk in the GMA activity group 1.30 on Friday September 26.

Preprint: On BLAS Level-3 Implementations of Common Solvers for (Quasi-) Triangular Generalized Lyapunov Equations


September 23rd, 2014
Martin Köhler und Jens Saak have extended existing methods for the solution of matrix Lyapunov equations with (quasi) triangular coefficient matrices from Blas level-2 to level-3. Thus, they have optimized the exploitation of modern computer architectures and achieved acceleration of the execution by notable factors.

Events: Peter Benner speaks at Heidelberg Laureate Forum


September 22nd, 2014
Within the Hot Topic session on Mathematics in developing countries at the Heidelberg Laureate forum, Peter Benner and Hermann Mena (University of Innsbruck) will jointly speak about their former German-Ecuadorian cooperation on simulating the spray-drift at the Ecuador-Colombian border caused by spraying herbicides to destroy coca plants. See Max Planck Research 1/2014 for details of the project.

Events: 3rd Symposium of the German SIAM Student Chapters


August 28th, 2014
The 3rd Symposium of the German SIAM Student Chapters toke place in Magdeburg on 28.-29. of August 2014. We welcomed guest from the other German SIAM Chapters in Heidelberg and Trier. For the first time, members of the SIAM Chapter in Prag participated to extend the international connections.
