The highlights of the new pyMOR version are:
– Improved model and reductor design makes pyMOR easier to extend.
– Extended VectorArray interface with generic complex number support.
– Improved and extended system-theoretic MOR methods.
– Builtin support for model outputs and parameter sensitivities.
The full release notes can be found here.
pyMOR is a software library for building model order reduction
applications with the Python programming language. Implemented
algorithms include reduced basis methods for parametric linear and
non-linear problems, as well as system-theoretic methods such as
balanced truncation or IRKA. All algorithms in pyMOR are formulated in
terms of abstract interfaces for seamless integration with external
PDE solver packages. Moreover, pure Python implementations of finite
element and finite volume discretizations using the NumPy/SciPy
scientific computing stack are provided for getting started quickly.

ROMSOC is a European Industrial Doctorate (EID) project in the programme Innovative Training Networks (ITN) and part of Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions within the Horizon 2020 programme. The ROMSOC EID Network brings together 15 international academic institutions and 11 industry partners and supports the recruitment of eleven Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will be working on an individual research project in the host institution with secondments related to their research in other academic and industrial partners of the network. The research is focused on three major topics: coupling methods, model reduction methods, and optimization methods, for industrial applications in well selected areas, such as optical and electronic systems, economic processes, and materials. The ROMSOC EID Network offers a unique research environment, where leading academics and innovative industries will integrate ESRs into their research teams for the training period, providing an excellent structured training programme in modelling, simulation and optimization of whole products and processes.
We seek excellent open-minded and team-spirited PhD candidates who will get unique international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral training in scientific and transferable skills by distinguished leaders from academia and industry. Deadline applications: 25 November. The calls for the ESR positions in the ROMSOC project have now been published at the EURAXESS webpage:

Uncertainty quantification (UQ) in complex mathematical models is a huge computational challenge for many reasons. Simple UQ tasks such as the estimation of statistical properties of system outputs often require multiple calls to a deterministic solver. A single solver call is already very expensive for complex mathematical models. Advanced UQ tasks such as sensitivity and reliability analysis, parameter identification, or optimal control and design often involve several layers of increasing complexity where each layer requires the performance of a specific UQ task. This workshop will address efficient numerical and statistical methods for reducing the overall cost of solving discrete problems that arise in UQ studies, focusing on methodologies that reduce the dimension of the problems to be solved.
Talks will be organised around topics such as: multilevel and multifidelity methods; reduced basis methods; dimension reduction strategies; low rank and tensor methods; challenges in Gaussian process emulation, and active subspaces. Workshop speakers and participants will be encouraged to explore connections between these topics. There will also be two contributed poster presentations. Please indicate on the registration form if you are interested in presenting a poster. A limited amount of funding may be available to support PhD students.
Please see the workshop webpage soon updated with a list of speakers and tentative titles, and already updated for registration details.
This workshop is the third event in a six-month programme on Uncertainty Quantification at the Isaac Newton Institute:
Organizers: Peter Challenor (University of Exeter), Max Gunzburger (Florida State University), Catherine Powell (University of Manchester), Henry Wynn (London School of Economics)
