Subject: New preCICE Release v2.4

A new preCICE release, v2.4, is out. This includes new features such
as the nearest-neighbor gradient mapping, improved time interpolation,
improved usability and building, and much more. More information can
be found at:

What is preCICE?

preCICE is a coupling library for partitioned multi-physics
simulations, including, but not restricted to fluid-structure
interaction and conjugate heat transfer simulations. The software
offers methods for transient equation coupling, communication, and
data mapping. preCICE is written in C++ and offers additional bindings
for C, Fortran, Matlab, Python and Julia. Ready-to-use adapters for
many solvers, such as OpenFOAM, deal.II, FEniCS, SU2, or CalculiX, are
available. Due to the minimally-invasive approach of preCICE, adapters
for in-house codes can be implemented and validated in only a few
weeks. preCICE is an open-source software under the LGPL3 license.

Subject: New Book, The Mathematics of Errors

This new book by Nicolas Bouleau might be of interest to you.
You will find the information text below.

The Mathematics of Errors presents an original, rigorous and
systematic approach to the calculus of errors, targeted at both the
engineer and the mathematician.

Starting from Gauss's original point of view, the book begins as an
introduction suitable for graduate students, leading to recent
developments in stochastic analysis and Malliavin calculus, including
contributions by the author. Later chapters, aimed at a more mature
audience, require some familiarity with stochastic calculus and
Dirichlet forms. Sensitivity analysis, in particular, plays an
important role in the book. Detailed applications in a range of
fields, such as engineering, robotics, statistics, financial
mathematics, climate science, or quantum mechanics are discussed
through concrete examples. Throughout the book, error analysis is
presented in a progressive manner, motivated by examples and appealing
to the reader's intuition.

By formalizing the intuitive concept of error and richly illustrating
its scope for application, this book provides readers with a blueprint
to apply advanced mathematics in practical settings. As such, it will
be of immediate interest to engineers and scientists, whilst providing
mathematicians with an original presentation.

PhD Positions available at the Center for Sustainable Subsurface
Resources (, Bergen, Norway:
- PhD Research Fellow in Applied and Computational Mathematics,
University of Bergen, Norway
- PhD Research Fellow in Optimization and Data Assimilation, NORCE,

We are searching for highly motivated candidates with a strong
background in scientific computing (mathematics/physics/machine
learning) and a passion to work on the intersection of physics,
numerics and machine learning with application to sustainability and
the energy transition.

The PhD Research Fellow positions are part of the interdisciplinary
Center for Sustainable Subsurface Resources (CSSR). The main ambitions
for CSSR are to provide the knowledge required for the Norwegian
petroleum industry to transition to zero-emissions production and
clean energy resources in the next decades. Intermittency of renewable
power and late- life conversion to H2/CO2 storage place new demands on
how petroleum reservoirs are understood and managed. CSSR will provide
improved subsurface understanding and updated digital tools to meet
the challenges of future reservoir operations and explore business
opportunities in the green transition.
