New SIAM journal on applied algebra

As you know I’m a fan of “applied pure math.”  You can be an applied mathematician and not do PDEs or numerical analysis now!  And to reflect this new reality, there’s a new journal, SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry (SIAGA).  They’re accepting submissions starting March 23; I actually have a little something that might be finished by then that would be perfect!

There are a bunch of cool pictures on the SIAGA flyer:  UC-Berkeley grad student Anna Seigal is explaining them on her blog, one by one.  The first entry depicts the algebraic variety you encounter when you try to find a point minimizing the summed distances to k other points in the plane.  Handsome!

Applied Algebra Days this weekend in Madison

One of the exciting aspects of math at Wisconsin is the new emphasis on what I call “applied pure math” — that is, applied math that doesn’t involve PDEs or numerical analysis.  If you’re in town and want to see what this looks like, you can come to the first Applied Algebra Days conference, featuring Ronny Hadani, Pablo Parrilo, Olga Holtz, and lots of other interesting people.  And as an added bonus it’s in the shiny new Wisconsin Institutes for DiscoverySchedule hereAbstracts here.
