SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics sponsors Activity Groups to provide a more focused forum for members interested in exploring one of the areas of applied mathematics, computational science, or applications. The SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra (SIAG/LA) promotes research in linear algebra and its applications. The group organizes conferences and supports smaller, less formal meetings as requested by the membership. Additionally, the group sponsors two prizes.

SIAM News articles, SIAM Connect and SIAM blogs will soon come together at the SIAM News Online site. This presents a great opportunity to showcase linear algebra activities and research to a much wider audience. If you have any linear algebra news that you think would be appreciated by a wider audience please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Marvin Marcus passed away on February 20, 2016. Marvin will be remembered not only for his many contributions to matrix theory and multilinear algebra but also for his support and mentorship of others, particularly his graduate students. Among his many achievements, Marvin co-founded the journal Linear and Multilinear Algebra, and a special issue will be devoted to his memory as detailed below.

This month the digest features an article from student member Manuel Baumann on the formation and activities of the TU Delft SIAM Student Chapter. We would love to hear more from early career and student members of SIAG/LA so if you, or someone you know, is doing something interesting in linear algebra please get in touch!

Several conferences of possible interest to SIAG-LA members were announced this month on the SIAG-LA digest and NA-digest, including:

SIAG/LA Linear Algebra Prize

Dec 12, 2014 • David Bindel

The call for nominations for the next SIAG/LA prize has been posted. The prize is awared to authors of the most oustanding English-language paper in applicable linear algebra published in English in a peer-reviewed journal in the three calendar years preceding the year of the award. Nominations are due by February 15, 2015. The prize will be presented at the upcoming SIAM LA meeting.

SIAG/LA outreach

Nov 6, 2014 • David Bindel

Since the start of 2012, postings to the SIAG-LA mailing list have been distributed in a SIAG-LA digest at the start of each month. These postings consist primarily of conference announcements and job listings, as is the case on most of the SIAG mailing lists. As a method of communication with SIAG members, this may be adequate, but it is hardly inspiring. In the October 2014 SIAG-LA digest, I wrote to request feedback from SIAG-LA members regarding ways in which SIAG-LA might better facilitate interactions between members or with the larger SIAM community (or beyond).

Hans Schneider passed away at the age of 87 on October 8, 2014. Schneider, the J. J. Sylvester Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, devoted much of his academic career to matrix theory. His own last words are posted at his web site, and a memorial page has been created on the ILAS web site.
