URSI Commission B’s International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMTS 2016) has been held from 14–18 August 2016 in Espoo, Finland. We presented in the Session of numerical time domain methods on Monday the contribution “An Application of ParaExp to Electromagnetic Wave Problems” (Melina Merkel, Innocent Niyonzima and Sebastian Schöps).
The graphical user interface of Octave 4.0 can only be compiled with Qt4. Homebrew is dropping 4.x support and moving towards 5.x. Several Octave dependencies have already been updated (e.g. Qscintilla2, see e.g. this issue. However, the upcoming Octave 4.2 (release is scheduled for September 2016) will have full Qt5 as discussed here.
The standard installation uses the command line interface. If you need Octave with graphical user interface then this should work
brew upgrade #to get the latest qscintilla
brew install octave --with-gui --HEAD
: The post has been edited on Aug 20 since the new formula is now available in homebrew’s science repository
Homebrew’s science repository includes now (again) the most recent versions of Gmsh 2.13.1 and GetDP 2.9
brew tap homebrew/science
brew install gmsh --with-fltk
brew install getdp
Dr. Lars Kielhorn from TailSiT GmbH
, Graz (Austria) talks on 25 Jul 2016, 16:15–17:45 (room S4|10-314) in the seminar on Computational Engineering
. Abstract: Electrical machines commonly consist of moving and stationary parts, e.g., an electric motor features a rotor and a stator. If volume based numerical schemes such as the Finite Element Method (FEM) are applied the electromagnetic simulation of such devices is a challenging task since the variation of the geometrical configuration needs to be incorporated into the numerical scheme.

The Mac package manager homebrew includes since commit 5eb3823
the latest release of GNU Octave
version, i.e., 4.0.3. It features the FLTK backend by default, which should fix a lot issues with exporting images. An update of the mac binary
will be uploaded soon.
On Friday, July 1st Michal Maciejewski
from CERN and Lodz University of Technology is visiting Computational Engineering at TU Darmstadt in the framework of the STEAM (“Simulation of Transient Effects in Accelerator Magnets”) cooperation, see e.g. this presentation
. The aim of this project is the accurate prediction of quenches

The contribution “An Application of ParaExp to Electromagnetic Wave Problems” (authors: Melina Merkel, Innocent Niyonzima et al.) has won one of the Young Scientist Awards
of the International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMTS 2016) organized by the URSI Commission B. Melina’s presentation will be given in the session of Numerical Time Domain Methods
The 19th European Conference on Mathematics for Industry (ECMI 2016
) in Santiago is over. We organized one minisymposium and contributed three talks in the minisymposia
