The Mathematical Institute Newsletter is maintained
by Jan-Hendrik Evertse.
The newsletter is issued the first week of each
month, except for July and August.
The electronic version of the newsletter can be found on
(go to the homepage of the Mathematical Institute and click on "Newsletter").
Copy for the June newsletter, such as announcements, personal
notes, visits to conferences, guests (with
place of origin and date of arrival and departure),
lectures of general
interest, Ph.D. thesis defenses (with title of thesis), etc.
should be sent by e-mail to
evertse at math.leidenuniv.nl
before May 27. The June newsletter will cover
June, July and August, so also copy related to July and August
may be submitted.
Copy should be submitted in English plaintext,
so that it can be inserted into the newsletter
without time consuming typing or translating work.

Consecutively, on Friday August 27, there will be a separate special
day on the occasion of the 65th birthday of prof.dr. G. van Dijk and his
retirement. His farewell speach is scheduled at 16.00 hours in the
Symposium and reception on Friday June 18 on occasion
of the 65th birthday of Marc Spijker.
On Friday June 18, there will be a symposium on occasion of the
65th birthday of Marc Spijker, titled
Stability of Numerical Methods for Time-Dependent Differential Equations.
The aim of
the symposium is to discuss both recent practical and theoretical
advances concerning the stability of numerical methods for
time-dependent differential equations.
The symposium will take place in room 313 of the Mathematical Institute,
Leiden University (building) Snellius, Niels Bohrweg 1, 2333 CA Leiden.
Following the symposium there will be a reception.
Please let Mrs. T.H. Bakker-Bouma (+ 31 71 5277111,
tineke at math.leidenuniv.nl) know before June 4, 2004 if you wish to
attend the symposium.
