Other Prizes The Ralph E. Kleinman prize is awarded to one individual for outstanding research, or other contributions, that bridge the gap between mathematics and applications. Work that uses high-level mathematics and/or invents new mathematical tools to solve applied problems from engineering, science, and technology is particularly appropriate. The value of the work will be measured by the quality of the mathematics and its impact on the application. Each prize may be given either for a single notable achievement or for a collection of such achievements. This year's recipient is: William W. Symes, Rice University. The SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes SIAM will award three prizes each year, beginning in 1999, for outstanding papers published in SIAM journals. The Prize Committee should seek papers that exhibit originality -- for example, papers that bring a fresh look at an existing field or that open up new areas of applied mathematics. The Committee is urged to give special consideration to younger authors. This year's recipients are: The Geometry of Algorithms with Orthogonality ConstraintsSIAM J. on Matrix Analysis and Applications 20(2) 1999 pp. 303-353 Tomás A. Arias, Alan Edelman, and Steven T.
