Topic #7 --------- OP-SF NET 11.6 ---------- November 15, 2004
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF NET Editor
Subject: Charles Clenshaw 1926-2004
Frank Olver has published an obituary on Charles Clenshaw who died
recently. It appeared in The Guardian on October 29 (p. 29) and is
reproduced below with permission.
Mathematician with a flair for numerical analysis
Charles Clenshaw
Lancaster University was just six years old when Charles Clenshaw, who
has died aged 78, arrived in 1969 to become professor of numerical
analysis. He and Emlyn Lloyd, professor of statistics, set about
building up the mathematics department, and the numerical analysis group
soon became one of the country's strongest, hosting the first four
summer schools in a series which still continues.
After the second world war, and partly because of it, numerical analysis
had undergone two transformations. The first was the development of much
more powerful methods: for example, for the solution of linear algebraic
equations and ordinary or partial differential equations. The second was
the adaptation of numerical analysis to take advantage of the tremendous
increase in computing power following the introduction of programmable
automatic electronic computers.
Charles contributed very substantially to both transformations. His name
became synonymous with the branch of approximation theory based on
Chebyshev polynomials. Later, he applied this theory in the construction
of software for generating mathematical functions, both elementary
(sines, cosines) and higher (Bessel functions). He also carried out
fundamental work on computer arithmetic systems.
Born in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Charles attended the local high school
from 1937 to 1943. In 1946, he graduated from King's College, University
of London, with a degree in mathematics and physics and took another in
special mathematics in 1948. Thirty-two years later London University
awarded him a DSc for his research in numerical analysis.
From 1945 to 1969 he was a mathematician at the National Physical
Laboratory (NPL), Teddington. From 1961, as a senior principal
scientific officer, he headed the numerical methods group in the NPL's
mathematics division.
Then came Lancaster. Charles's PhD students included the late Will
Light, formerly professor of mathematics at Leicester University, and
Ian Reid of Oxford's Numerical Algorithms Group.
Charles was head of Lancaster's mathematics department from 1975 to 1978
and from 1982 to 1984, but in the 1980s, the government instituted broad
cuts in the number of faculty members in many universities. As
department head, Charles was instructed to select one member for
dismissal. Regarding this instruction as totally unfair, he dismissed
himself - taking early retirement in 1985. He was then honoured as
professor emeritus.
In his youth, Charles played regularly in the NPL's football and cricket
first elevens. His musical enthusiasms ranged from Richard Strauss and
Richard Wagner to Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet. He was the kindest
man I have ever known, putting the interests of others ahead of his own,
whenever he perceived that this was the right thing to do.
Charles is survived by his wife Win, his four children, Alan, Peter,
Michael and Sarah, and 10 grandchildren. He is also survived by his
brother David. His oldest brother, Ian, was officially the first RAF
pilot to be killed in the Battle of Britain in 1940.

From: Marty Golubitsky
Subject: Message from SIAM President-Elect
I am writing to solicit your help.
SIAM is a world class organization because of the dedication of two
groups: the professional staff in Philadelphia who administer the
conferences, publish the journals, keep the books, and run the business
aspects of the society; and the volunteers who make the professional and
scientific endeavors of the society function.
The SIAM President participates in the appointment of volunteers to
various committees including: Science Policy, Major Awards, Education,
Publication, Committee on Committees and Appointments, SIAG Nominating
Committees, Prize Selection Committees, and the SIAM Nominating
Committee. The president also participates in the selection of
candidates for society-wide offices and the appointment of nonelected
officers, and the president is often asked to nominate individuals to
serve on national committees in the mathematical and computational
sciences.
SIAM has many talented individuals who can serve admirably in these
positions --- and many of these people are willing to give of their time
to ensure that these society functions work.
Can you help me by suggesting names of people from your community whom
you believe have both the talent and the interest to help SIAM by
serving on some of these committees. Please send these suggestions to
me at mg@uh.edu.
I cannot promise that each individual named will be asked to serve ---
but I do promise to use the information you provide as an important
database when such decisions are made.
Many thanks.

From: OP-SF NET Editor
Subject: New Edition of Gasper-Rahman
This information is from the web site:
http://uk.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521833578
Basic Hypergeometric Series
2nd Edition
George Gasper, Mizan Rahman
Published October 2004
454 pages, 3 line diagrams, 296 exercises
Hardback, GBP 65.00
ISBN:0521833574 | ISBN13:9780521833578
From the Preface:
"In 1990 it was beyond our wildest imagination that we would be working
on a second edition of this book thirteen years later. In this day and age
of rapid growth in almost every area of mathematics, in general, and in
Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions, in particular, it would not
be surprising if the book became obsolete by now and gathered dust on the
bookshelves. All we hoped for is a second printing. Even that was only a
dream since the main competitor of authors and publishers these days are
not other books, but the ubiquitous copying machine. But here we are:
bringing out a second edition with full support of our publisher.
The main source of inspiration, of course, has been the readers and users
of this book. The response has been absolutely fantastic right from the
first weeks the book appeared in print. The kind of warm reception we
enjoyed far exceeded our expectations. Years later many of the leading
researchers in the field kept asking us if an updated version would soon
be forthcoming. Yes, indeed, an updated and expanded version was becoming
necessary during the latter part of the 1990's in view of all the
explosive growth that the subject was experiencing in many different areas
of applications of basic hypergeometric series (also called q-series).
However, the most important and significant impetus came from an
unexpected source -- Statistical Mechanics. In trying to find elliptic
(doubly periodic meromorphic) solutions of the so-called Yang-Baxter
equation arising out of an eight-vertex model in Statistical Mechanics the
researchers found that the solutions are, in fact, a form of
hypergeometric series \sum a_n z^n with a_{n+1}/a_n is an elliptic
function of n, with n regarded as a complex variable ..."
The second edition includes three new Chapters:
9. Linear and bilinear generating functions for basic orthogonal
polynomials
10. q-series in two or more variables
11. Elliptic, modular and theta hypergeometric series

From: OP-SF NET Editor
Subject: About the Activity Group
The SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions
consists of a broad set of mathematicians, both pure and applied. The
Group also includes engineers and scientists, students as well as
experts. We have around 140 members scattered about in more than 20
countries. Whatever your specialty might be, we welcome your
participation in this classical, and yet modern, topic. Our WWW home
page is:
http://math.nist.gov/opsf/
This is a convenient point of entry to all the services provided by the
Group. Our Webmaster is Bonita Saunders (bonita.saunders@nist.gov).
The Activity Group sponsors OP-SF NET, which is transmitted
periodically by SIAM. It is provided as a free public service;
membership in SIAM is not required. The OP-SF Net Editor is Martin
Muldoon (muldoon@yorku.ca).
To receive the OP-SF NET, send your name and email address to
poly-request@siam.org.
Back issues can be obtained at the WWW addresses:

http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/JAT/DATA/OPSFNET/opsfnet.html
http://math.nist.gov/opsfnet/archive
For several years the Activity Group sponsored a printed Newsletter,
most recently edited by Rafael Yanez. Back issues are accessible at:
http://www.mathematik.uni-kassel.de/~koepf/siam.html
Given the widespread availability of email and the Internet, the need for
the printed Newsletter has decreased. Discussions are underway concerning
whether an annual printed Newsletter or Annual Report should be
instituted.
SIAM has several categories of membership, including low-cost categories
for students and residents of developing countries. For current
information on SIAM and Activity Group membership, contact:
