Welcome to SIAM! Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential in solving many real-world problems. Our mission is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology through our publications, research, and community.


I. Edward Block
Ed Block, SIAM founder and longtime managing director, passed away after a brief illness on February 18, 2015. Ed’s vision and drive, from the origins of SIAM in the early 1950s through his retirement in 1994, established SIAM as the world’s largest applied mathematics society and a major publisher of journals and books.
