SIAM is happy to welcome Arnd Scheel, Jean-Michel Morel, and Leonard Schulman as Editors-in-Chief.
SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis
Arnd Scheel will be the new Editor-in-Chief (EIC) for the SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis (SIMA). He will start his three-year term at the end of the year, taking over from Bob Pego of Carnegie Mellon University, who ends two terms as EIC.
Scheel is currently one of SIMA’s five Corresponding Editors, who, along with the Editor-in-Chief make all final decisions, based on recommendations of the Associate Editors and referee reports. This peer-review model was put forth by Pego and has been in place since February 2011, prior to which all final decisions were made by the EIC.
Scheel has previously served as Associate Editor for SIMA, and is currently also an Associate Editor for the SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems.
A professor in the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota, Scheel’s research interests are in dynamics of partial differential equations, pattern formation, and nonlinear waves.
SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences
After six years as the first Editor-in-Chief of the SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences (SIIMS), where he played a visionary role in the journal’s planning, start-up and growth, Guillermo Sapiro of Duke University hands over the reins to Jean-Michel Morel, who will succeed Sapiro on January 1.
Also an original member of the SIIMS Editorial Board, Morel served as an Associate Editor since the journal’s inception in early 2007. A longtime SIAM journals’ author, Morel has also served on the editorial boards of the SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics and Multiscale Modeling and Simulation.
Morel trained in partial differential equations, variational models and nonlinear analysis. His current research interests are in image analysis and image processing. He is affiliated with the Center for Mathematical Studies and their Applications at ENS Cachan.
SIAM Journal on Computing
Leonard Schulman will succeed Madhu Sudan of Microsoft Research and MIT as Editor-in-Chief of the SIAM Journal on Computing (SICOMP). Sudan has headed the journal since the beginning of 2010, prior to which he served 10 years as an Associate Editor.
Schulman joined the SICOMP board as an Associate Editor in 2010. He is also currently an Associate Editor of the SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics.
Schulman has authored papers in SICOMP and SIDMA, and was named guest editor-in-charge of SICOMP’s STOC 2010 Special Section, which will appear upon completion of the review process.
His areas of research interest include algorithms and communication protocols; combinatorics and probability; coding and information theory; and quantum computation.
