Subject: Nominations for Intel Research Impact Medal

The Intel Research Impact Medal acknowledges researchers whose work
benefits Intel and the broader industrial and academic community. It
is open to fulltime faculty from universities and research institutes
worldwide. Candidates must be nominated by an Intel employee,
preferably one with firsthand knowledge of the candidate's
work. Eligible candidates are encouraged to contact their Intel
collaborators about submitting nominations.

The Intel Research Impact Medal is a direct monetary award (10,000 USD
or equivalent in local currency). Nominations are due August 12,
2011. Eligible nominees will be notified soon after, at which point an
up-to-date curriculum vitae will be requested. Nominations will be
reviewed by a panel of senior Intel technologists. Award selection is
based on demonstrated impact of the candidate's research within Intel,
its benefit to Intel customers and end- users, and its influence
within the broader academic community. Awards will be announced in
September 2011.

Subject: New Book, Polynomial Based Iteration Methods

Announcing the July 11 publication by SIAM of:

Polynomial Based Iteration Methods for Symmetric Linear Systems,
by Bernd Fischer

2011 / 283 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611971-91-0 /
List Price $85.00 / SIAM Member Price $59.50 / Order Code CL68

This book provides a concise introduction to computational methods for
solving large linear systems of equations. It is the only textbook
that treats iteration methods for symmetric linear systems from a
polynomial point of view. This particular feature enables readers to
understand the convergence behavior and subtle differences of the
various schemes, which are useful tools for the design of powerful

Published nearly 15 years ago, the book continues to be useful to the
mathematical, scientific, and engineering communities as a
presentation of what appear to be the most efficient methods for
symmetric linear systems of equations.

It is appropriate for researchers and advanced undergraduate and
graduate students using numerical linear algebra, as well as
practitioners working in applications that lead to symmetric
indefinite systems.
