SIAG on Algebraic Geometry

The purpose of the SIAM Activity Group in Algebraic Geometry is to bring together researchers who use algebraic geometry in industrial and applied mathematics. "Algebraic geometry" is interpreted broadly to include:

algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, noncommutative algebra, symbolic and numeric computation, algebraic and geometric combinatorics, representation theory, and algebraic topology.

These methods have already seen applications in:

biology, chemistry, coding theory, cryptography, combustion, computational geometry, computer graphics, quantum computing, control theory, geometric design, complexity theory, machine learning, nonlinear partial differential equations, optimization, robotics, and statistics.

We welcome participation from both theoretical mathematical areas and application areas not on this list which fall under this broadly interpreted notion of algebraic geometry and its applications.

The SIAG organizes biennial meetings and minisymposia at the SIAM annual meeting. Recent examples are:

In Memoriam: Agnes Szanto

Agnes Szanto passed away recently after battling cancerous lymphoma. Agnes was a very important person in SIAM (AG)² community from the beginning, and she served as the chair of the group in 2016-2017. Agnes was a leader in the design and analysis of symbolic and hybrid algorithms in algebraic computation. In addition to her outstanding scientific contributions, she was a warm and generous colleague. She will be missed greatly. Agnes is survived by her husband, Scott, and her daughter, Sophia.
