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

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

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

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

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
