SIAM Seeks Director of Programs and Services

SIAM is seeking a creative, strategic Director of Programs and Services to support the technical activities of our organization. The Director of Programs is responsible for the oversight and management of programs and projects mostly concentrated on the society’s membership and conference programs, including the administration of grants in those areas. Learn more.

Explore SIAM's New Website at AN18

Stop by the exhibit hall of the Annual Meeting Tuesday or Wednesday and explore the new SIAM website! We are excited to offer a newly-designed website which is now mobile friendly. Ask us your questions and tell us what you think of it. Your thoughts will be used to help guide future updates and improvements. With such an overhaul of our site, we are seeking reports on any bugs you should find, too. If you're not at AN18, submit bugs and feedback through the Feedback or Suggestions buttons; both buttons can be found at the bottom of the website. Learn more about the site's new features. 

Publishing News & Notes

​BIG Jobs Guide: Business, Industry, and Government Careers for Mathematical Scientists, Statisticians, and Operations Researchers​

Brand new book! Jobs using mathematics, statistics, and operations research are projected to grow by almost 30% over the next decade. BIG Jobs Guide helps job seekers at every stage of their careers in these fields explore opportunities in business, industry, and government (BIG). Learn more.

Hot Off the Press

Linear Stochastic Systems
Linear Stochastic Systems, originally published in 1988, is today as comprehensive a reference to the theory of linear discrete-time-parameter systems as ever. Its most outstanding feature is the unified presentation, including both input-output and state space representations of stochastic linear systems, together with their interrelationships. Learn more.

Core-Chasing Algorithms for the Eigenvalue Problem
This book presents a new view of John Francis’s implicitly shifted QR algorithm, which has been the method of choice for small to medium sized eigenvalue problems since 1959. The new version chases core transformations (not bulges), allowing the development of fast algorithms for eigenvalue problems with a variety of special structures. This also leads to a fast and backward stable algorithm for computing the roots of a polynomial by solving the companion matrix eigenvalue problem. Learn more.
