The Householder Symposium is held in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra.
The term numerical linear algebra
is intended to describe those
parts of mathematical research
that have both linear algebraic
aspects and numerical content or
implications. Thus, for example,
a dissertation concerned with
the numerical solution of
differential equations or the
numerical solution of an
optimization problem would be
eligible if linear algebra is
central to the research
To qualify, the dissertation must have been examined and deemed to have passed during the period of the prize. However, the PhD degree or equivalent need not have been officially awarded during this period.
Candidates from countries in which a formal dissertation is not normally written at that level may submit an equivalent piece of work. The Householder Prize, given every three years, was established at the 1969 Gatlinburg Symposium (now renamed the Householder Symposium) to recognize the outstanding contributions of Alston S. Householder, 1904-1993, to numerical analysis and linear algebra.
Entries will be assessed by an international committee consisting of:
