Echkina Department of the Automation for Scientific Research (ASR) was founded in 1988 on the basis of research and teaching group of the Mathematical Physics Department (former Department of Computational Mathematics). The founder and permanent head of the ASR Department is Russian Academy of Sciences Corresponding Member Dmitry P. Kostomarov. Under his guidance the department performs wide spectrum of research in the field of computer simulation of complex systems and processes.

Nowadays a considerable attention is absorbed to the study of superintense femtosecond laser pulse interaction with a matter. These processes are of a great interest for both basic research and numerous applications. The development of compact laser driven accelerators to promote hadronic therapy for oncological diseases is among the most interesting and important ones. The work on a such accelerator is impossible without a detailed full-scale computer simulation of laser pulses interaction with media. The only possible approach consists in the creation of virtual computer environment encompassing tens and hundreds billion particles. It is crucial to exploit supercomputers in order to obtain realistic results in a reasonable time.

Pozdneev Computer simulation via particles is widely applicable when engineering next-generation mass spectrometers capable of high precision mass measurement of biological macromolecules. The problem is particularly significant for proteomics and investigation of proteins structure, that is among the most important points in the design of drugs active on a cellular level. Besides, in the framework of this project a peptide identification code have been developed at the department that is better able to assign aminoacid sequences then popular protein search engine software products. The distinctive feature of these problems is the necessity for the up-to-date parallel programming techniques.

Alexander Pozdneev at the SIAG/LA-SIMUMAT International Summer School on Numerical Linear Algebra

International Center of Mathematical meetings (CIEM), Castro Urdiales

The "SIAG/LA-SIMUMAT International Summer School on Numerical Linear Algebra" was organized by the SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra and was held at the International Center of Mathematical meetings (CIEM) in Castro Urdiales, July 21-25, 2008. Alexander Pozdneev, PhD student of the ASR Department, has attended the Summer School.

The courses were focused on recent research topics that have reached a significant maturity and whose impact is widely recognized by the community. Prof. Michael Eirmann (Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany) had a series of lectures on Krylov subspace methods for solving linear systems. Matrix methods in data mining were considered by Prof. Lars Elden (Linköping University, Sweden). His lectures were devoted to the problems of web search results ranking technique Google PageRank, utilization of SVD for classification of handwritten digits. Richard Lehouq (Sandia National Laboratories, USA) introduced the symbiotic relationship between mechanics and linear algebra. Prof. David Watkins (Washington State University, USA) lectured on numerical methods for solving eigenvalue problems for large sparse matrix arising when approximating mathematical physics problems.

The detailed information, annotations of courses, slides and links to lecturers homepages are available at the Summer School official website:

Pontryagin. Image courtesy of Alexander V. Pozdneev

The international conference "Differential Equations and Topology" devoted to the 100th Anniversary of the birthday of Lev Semenovich Pontryagin was held in Lomonosov Moscow State University, June 17-22, 2008. Head of the ASR Department RAS Corresponding Member Dmitry P. Kostomarov had a talk "Problems for Ultrahyperbolic Equations in Half-Space" [PDF 413.47 KB] on June 22nd at the subsection "Partial Differential Equations" of "Differential Equations" section.

Ultrahyperbolic equations are set aside by mathematicians since they are usually not met in applications. At the same time such equations are very interesting from mathematical point of view, because their solutions possess both hyperbolic and elliptic properties. In his talk Prof. Kostomarov considered problems in half-space z ≥ 0 as the example.

Pozdneev The 56th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry took place in Denver (CO, USA), June 1-5, 2008. The ASR Department PhD student Alexander Pozdneev presented a poster "Supercomputer Simulations of Interacting Ion Cloud Dynamics in FT-ICR Cells Using Novel Parallel Three-Dimensional Domain Decomposition Finite Element Particle-in-Cell Code" (co-authors: A. M. Popov, A. S. Misharin) at the conference.

International conference "Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics" is an annual meeting of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS). Approximately 7000 scientists attended this conference, and over 3000 research papers have been presented in 2008. The conference is the biggest and most representative mass spectrometry event. The high level of the conference is the result of strict paper peer-reviewing, furthermore, each author may present no more than once at the conference.
