Comments Solicited about SIAM Book Program

By Nicholas Higham

The SIAM Book Committee is currently carrying out a review of the book program. It seeks input from the community about all aspects of the program. Please use the comment box at the end of this post or, alternatively, email me, as the Chair of the Book Committee.

Examples of questions on which input would be valuable include, but are not limited to:

  • Are there areas of applied mathematics, or particular topics, in which SIAM is not publishing books but should be?
  • What do you think about the quality of SIAM books, both of the content and of the printed book?
  • Should SIAM publish more textbooks?
  • Is SIAM’s promotion and marketing of books appropriate?
  • Is SIAM working with the right model for electronic publishing (currently, the institutional book programme and Google Play for individuals)?
Nick Higham is the Richardson Professor of Applied Mathematics at The University of Manchester and serves as chair of the SIAM Book Committee and editor-in-chief of the SIAM Fundamentals of Algorithms book series.
