SIAM has launched a new journal on the Mathematics of Data Science, and it is now taking submissions.
I have been re-elected to a third term on the SIAM Board of Trustees. Thanks to all SIAM members who voted in the election - your participation matters! The Board is a largely invisible but important part of SIAM because they are responsible for the management of SIAM. In fact, they are the body that has full legal control of SIAM funds, investments, and properties. The board comprises nine elected members along with the SIAM President, SIAM Treasurer, and two appointees (determined by the Board).
Sometimes the term sparse is used to refer to a matrix that has a large fraction of missing entries, but the more typical usage of that term is to refer to a matrix that has a large fraction of zero entries. We instead recommend the term scarce for a large amount of missing data and discuss various scenarios.
The Tensor Toolbox is now fully open source and also has a new website at www.tensortoolbox.org.
