The past decade has seen an explosion of applications of algebra, geometry, and topology to the real world. As such, the SIAM community has voiced a need for a research journal to cover this emerging area, and we’ve responded. Newly launched and beginning to publish in February, the SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry, led by Bernd Sturmfels as Editor-in-Chief, will showcase world-class researchers and their groundbreaking work in the field. Learn more about this growing field and new SIAM journal in our brand new animation! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-k9zIGu43A

Does dark matter actually exist? While astronomers assert that dark matter forms halos around galaxies, no one has yet seen this material or been able to study it. The elusive, invisible phenomenon presents an intriguing enigma. In the latest issue of SIAM News, Donald Saari presents mathematical analysis that compromises, if not eliminates, a standard argument for the existence of massive amounts of dark matter. #darkmatter #astronomy #math #mathematics #dynamics #dynamicalsystems #matter #darkenergy #space #galaxies #siamnews
By Donald G. Saari Dark matter is a fascinating, frustrating scientific mystery. Astronomers claim that much of it forms halos surrounding galaxies, yet “no one has ever seen this material or been able to study it” [1]. Hence, anticipation accompanied delivery of the “Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer - 02” to the International Space Station in May 2011. Although a goal was to discover this elusive stuff, nothing conclusive has been found [1]. Dark mat...

Math in the news: Yesterday David Thouless, Duncan Haldane, and J. Michael Kosterlitz received the #NobelPrize in #physics for their work on theoretical discoveries in exotic states of matter, which were based on the #mathematics of topology. Read more about their work in Science News Magazine: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/nobel-awarded-using-math-shapes-explain-exotic-matter
Bagels and pretzels have a lot in common with the physics of certain materials: The snacks illustrated the mathematics behind theoretical descriptions of exotic states of matter, work which won the 2016 Nobel Prize in physics on October 4. David Thouless of the University of Washington in Seattle, J. Michael Kosterlitz of Brown University and Duncan Haldane of Princeton University received the prize for their research, which predicted new types o...

Taking cues from nature to manage financial systems #finance #dynamicalsystems #nature
Like ecosystems, financial markets are complex evolving systems from which unexpected bubbles, crashes, and other surprising behaviors can emerge. Building resilient financial systems may require policymakers to take cues from biology.

VIDEO RESOURCE> We just released our 7-part #mathmodeling video series - an instructional, episodic treatment of the math modeling process - great for #educators and #students alike! Have you seen it? Through each short video, students work through the process and explain each step along the way. Thanks to the students at Rutgers Preparatory School​ for letting us hang for the day! Watch the videos now: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLf_ipOSbWC87nFTi6MaB4begv56yPKsOJ #mathmatters

The live chat with Nick Trefethen is on NOW -- until 1 p.m. ET. Visit the article page and sign in through social media to ask Nick a question! https://sinews.siam.org/DetailsPage/TabId/900/ArtMID/2243/ArticleID/757/Surprises-of-the-Faraday-Cage.aspx
By Lloyd N. Trefethen Nearly everyone has heard of the Faraday cage effect. So when I needed to learn about it, I assumed it would be a matter of looking in some standard physics books, maybe the ones I’d studied as an undergraduate. This was the beginning of a journey of surprises. The Faraday cage effect involves shielding of electrostatic and electromagnetic fields. A closed metal cavity makes a perfect shield, with zero fields inside, and tha...

Five times in U.S. history, and twice since 2000, the elected United States president did not win the popular vote. For decades, experts have said that extreme outcomes are possible with the Electoral College method of electing a president. What does the math say? Simple mathematical analysis illustrates that the Electoral College system could lead to wide discrepancies in relation to the popular vote. #mathematics #elections #popularvote #electoralcollege #math #election2016
In 1787, Article 2 of the United States Constitution established the Executive Branch of government and the system of electing a president. Over the years, changes have been made to this article, but it continues to rely on the Electoral College to elect the president. In fact, Article 2, Section 1, states that ”Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors equal to the whole number of Senato...

How is the linear algebra community handling one of its most pressing issues—ever-larger matrices and, increasingly, tensors? SIAG/LA secretary Jennifer Pestana talks about all this as well as applications to which linear algebra can contribute to and learn from. #linearalgebra #algebra #math#mathcommunity #linearalgebratrends
By Jennifer Pestana As secretary of the SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra (SIAG/LA), I have had the pleasure of becoming better acquainted with our members and their work. The breadth of new and innovative linear algebra research—showcased at the most recent SIAM Annual Meeting, International Linear Algebra Society (ILAS) Conference, and SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra—is far greater than I can convey here. Instead, I will touch ...

How can industrial and applied mathematics societies improve the visibility and reach of industrial mathematics? ICIAM Officer-at-Large Volker Mehrmann discusses. Chime in with your thoughts! #math #industry #industrialmath #mathinindustry
By Volker Mehrmann It is common wisdom that mathematics drives innovation in most areas of science and engineering, but also economics and social sciences. Mathematical modeling, Simulation and Optimization (MSO) provides the language and the tools for progress that goes beyond classical trial and error. As the reports from several countries, e.g., the UK, the Netherlands and France indicate, mathematics has a huge economic impact on the GNP and ...
