Nodet

Jan 2017 324pp

9781611974539 Paperback US$84.00

Fundamentals of Algorithms 11

Places data assimilation into the

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

(SIAM) was founded by a small group of mathematicians

from academia and industry who met in Philadelphia in

1951 to start an organisation whose members would meet

periodically to exchange ideas about the uses of mathematics

in industry. This meeting led to the creation of SIAM.
