COMBINATORICS & OPTIMIZATION

UNIVERSITY OF WATERLOO

Position in Continuous or Discrete Optimization

Details of Position

The Department of Combinatorics and Optimization invites applications

for a faculty position, starting July 1, 1988, at the Assistant Professor

level in the area of Continuous or Discrete Optimization.

A PhD degree is required and the candidate should have proven ability,

or the potential, for excellent research and effective teaching.

It is desirable that the candidate have interest in the application of

optimization techniques to problems in business, industry and commerce.

The appointment is expected to enhance the Department's ability to

support research and education in the area of Operations Research.

Responsibilities will include the supervision of graduate students,

as well as teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

It is the intention of the University of Waterloo to fill its regular

academic vacancies with recent PhD graduates appointed as Assistant Professors.

In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, this advertisement

is directed to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

About the University

The University of Waterloo is situated on an attractive 1000-acre campus in

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, some 120 km west of Toronto.

The present enrollment is approximately 16,000 full-time students,

including more than 1,350 at the graduate level.

Of these, about 3,150 undergraduates and 220 graduates are enrolled in

the Faculty of Mathematics, which comprises the Department of Applied

Mathematics, Combinatorics and Optimization, Computer Science, Pure

Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science, and the Division of

Mathematics for Industry and Commerce.

Faculty members in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization

are actively engaged in research in many of the major areas of

combinatorics and optimization.

Among those with interests in discrete and continuous optimization

are F. Barahona (operations research and combinatorial

optimization), G. Berman (sparse non-linear systems), M.J. Best (continuous

optimization, quadratic programming), C.J. Colbourn (network reliability

and graph algorithms), A.R. Conn (optimization),

J. Edmonds (combinatorial optimization and matroid theory), C.E. Haff

(discrete optimization), U.S.R. Murty (graph theory and matroid theory),

W.R. Pulleyblank (combinatorial optimization), B.A. Reed (perfect graphs,

graph algorithms), H. Wolkowicz (optimization), and D.H. Younger (directed

graphs, minimax theorems,algorithms).

In addition, there are several faculty members active in operations

research belonging to the Department of Management Sciences in the

Faculty of Engineering.

I am seeking source code for a routine which will perform a Fast Fourier

Transform over GF(p). I already have a radix-2 routine in hand. What I

am seeking is a routine that will handle transform lengths that are

also divisible by 3, 5, and 7.

Yes, the algorithm is well known, but I don't want to reinvent the

wheel.
