SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry (SIAGA) publishes research articles of exceptional quality on the development of algebraic, geometric, and topological methods with strong connection to applications. This connection must be explained and whenever possible specific applications used as examples. The journal also publishes articles highlighting interesting algebraic, geometric, or topological problems arising from applications, provided that the connection to applications is clearly established. Papers in pure mathematics inspired by, but removed from, applications or on applications of one area of pure mathematics to another are best suited for other journals.
The areas from mathematics that are drawn on are interpreted very broadly, and include at least: algebraic geometry, algebraic, geometric, and topological combinatorics, algebraic topology, combinatorial topology, commutative and noncommutative algebra, convex and discrete geometry, differential geometry, multilinear and tensor algebra, number theory, representation theory, symbolic and numerical computation.
The application areas include at least biology, coding theory, complexity theory, computational geometry, computer graphics, computer vision, control theory, cryptography, data analysis, game theory and economics, geometric design, machine learning, optimization, quantum computing, robotics, social choice and voting theory, statistics, theoretical computer science, and any other applications which substantially use methods from algebra, geometry, or topology. Submissions on computational methods or that include mathematical software are particularly welcome.
Articles for SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry must be accessible and of wide interest to mathematicians working in related or application areas. They must contain substantially new results and relate them to the existing literature in a scholarly fashion.
Brevity is encouraged, with a suggested maximum length of 25 pages. We emphasize the use of online resources. Abstracts should be well-written and not too technical, with no mathematical symbols or bibliographic references.
Referees will be asked for their report within two months. Editors may summarily reject papers that in their opinion are not suitable for publication in the journal.
Submission of a manuscript to SIAGA is representation by the author(s) that the associated manuscript has not been published or submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.
Submission of an extended version of conference proceedings will be considered only if (i) the work is significantly revised and extended, and (ii) the previous appearance is explicitly indicated in both the cover letter to SIAGA and a footnote on the first page of the paper.
