Linear algebra is a fundamental tool in modeling and computation. This area covers research and computational methods in linear algebra and matrix analysis. A few examples of the diverse areas of application are signal processing, systems and control theory, statistics, Markov chains, and mathematical biology.

This prize was created in 2013 to emphasize George Pólya’s legacy of communicating mathematics effectively. It joins two long-standing Pólya prizes SIAM has awarded in combinatorics and other fields beginning in 1969.

Established in 1987, the prize is awarded to the author or authors of the most outstanding paper on a topic in applicable linear algebra published in English in a peer-reviewed journal.

Established in 2017, the prize is awarded every three years to a post-PhD early career researcher for recent research contributions in the field of applicable linear algebra.

This joint prize was established in 2002 to honor Sonia Kovalevsky and her work on the theory of differential equations. It is awarded to anyone in the scientific or engineering community whose work highlights the achievements of women in applied and computational mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AWM website.

This joint prize was established in 2002 to honor Sonia Kovalevsky and her work on the theory of differential equations. It is awarded to anyone in the scientific or engineering community whose work highlights the achievements of women in applied and computational mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AWM website.

This prize was created in 2013 to emphasize George Pólya’s legacy of communicating mathematics effectively. It joins two long-standing Pólya prizes SIAM has awarded in combinatorics and other fields beginning in 1969.

Established in 1987, the prize is awarded to the author or authors of the most outstanding paper on a topic in applicable linear algebra published in English in a peer-reviewed journal.

Established in 2017, the prize is awarded every three years to a post-PhD early career researcher for recent research contributions in the field of applicable linear algebra.

The SIAM Student Paper Prize is awarded annually to the student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) accepted by SIAM journals within the three years preceding the nomination deadline. Starting with the 2018 award, the focus of the prize is to recognize outstanding scholarship by students in SIAM journals.

The Pioneer Prize is awarded every four years at the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) Congress to one individual for pioneering work introducing applied mathematical methods and scientific computing techniques to an industrial problem area or a new scientific field of applications. Nominations can be submitted via the ICIAM website.

Established in 1967, the prize honors Norbert Wiener, a founder of the field of cybernetics. The prize is awarded every three years by SIAM and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) for an outstanding contribution to applied mathematics. Nominations can be submitted via the AMS website.

The prize recognizes innovative software in scientific computing by researchers in the earlier stages of their career. Starting in 2019, SIAM will award the prize every four years at the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering.

Through the generosity and inspiration of Gerald and Judith Porter, the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), American Mathematical Society (AMS), and SIAM offer this annual lecture at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. The lecture, first awarded in 2010, is given on a mathematical topic accessible to the broader community.

Named in honor of I. E. Block, a co-founder and the first managing director of SIAM, this lecture is open to the public at the SIAM Annual Meeting. It is intended to encourage public appreciation of applied mathematics and computational science by reaching out to the local community.

Established in 1979 in honor of James H. Wilkinson, the prize is awarded to an individual in their early career for recent contributions to numerical analysis and scientific computing.

Established in 1959, the prize honors John von Neumann, a founder of modern computing. The prize is awarded annually for distinguished contributions to applied mathematics and for the effective communication of these ideas to the community.

The JPBM Communications Award is given annually to reward and encourage communicators who, on a sustained basis, bring mathematical ideas and information to non-mathematical audiences. The prize may be awarded in two categories: For Public Outreach and For Expository and Popular Books. Nominations can be submitted via the AMS website.

The prize was established in 1986 in memory of Richard C. DiPrima, who served SIAM for many years and in 1979–1980 as SIAM President. It aims to recognize an early career researcher in applied mathematics and is based on the doctoral dissertation.

The prize recognizes students for outstanding solutions to real world math problems. It is awarded to two of the teams judged "Outstanding" in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) administered annually by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP). Registration is accepted via the COMAP website.

The SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize is not currently active. For the 20 years before it was discontinued in 2019, the SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes brought attention to papers published in SIAM journals. Three awards were made each year to the authors of papers deemed by SIAM journal editors-in-chief worthy of particular attention.

The prize, established in 1985 and originally intended to be awarded periodically, is now awarded annually for contributions to the advancement of applied mathematics on the national or international level.

SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications (SIMAX) contains research articles and papers of interest to the numerical linear algebra community. SIMAX also contains papers that are of a theoretical nature but have a possible impact on applications.
