International Summer School on Numerical Linear Algebra

The SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra organizes a summer school: The SIAG/LA International Summer School on Numerical Linear Algebra (ISSNLA). The last meeting was in July 2013 at Fudan University.

The main goal of the SIAG/LA-ISSNLA is to offer accessible courses on current developments in Numerical Linear Algebra and on the applications of Numerical Linear Algebra to other disciplines. The SIAG/LA-ISSNLA is mainly intended for graduate students in any field where methods and algorithms of Numerical Linear Algebra are used.

  • Matrix equations and model reduction
  • High performance linear solvers and eigenvalue computations

The main lecturers were

  • Peter Benner, Max Planck Institute, Magdeburg, Germany
  • Nicholas Higham, University of Manchester, United Kingdom
  • Marlis Hochbruck, Karslruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
  • Ren-Cang Li, University of Texas, Arlington, USA
  • Xiaoye (Sherry) Li, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA

SIAG/LA-SIMUMAT International Summer School on Numerical Linear Algebra

Castro Urdiales, Spain, July 21-25, 2008.
Organized by SIAG/LA.

The first ISSNLA took place in Spain in 2008, where it was held in cooperation with SIMUMAT (Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Simulation in Science and Technology) and took the form of the SIAG/LA-SIMUMAT International Summer School in Numerical Linear Algebra. Four courses were given during the school:

  • Krylov subspace methods for solving linear systems, Michael Eiermann, Institut für Numerische Mathematik und Optimierung, Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg
  • Matrix methods in data mining, Lars Eldén, Department of Mathematics, Linköping University
  • Mechanics and linear algebra, Richard B. Lehoucq, Sandia National Laboratories
  • Structured eigenvalue problems: modern theory and computational practice, David S. Watkins, Department of Mathematics, Washington State University

A report on the 2008 Summer School (PDF, 89K) is available.
