FEASTPACK is MATLAB software for creating large-scale artificial graphs that match a given degree distribution (i.e., the same distribution of edges) and a given clustering coefficient distribution (i.e., the same distribution of 3-cycles).
There is a proposal to form a new SIAM Activity Group on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (SIAG/EDI). If you support this effort, you can provide your e-signature.
Great time at Midwest Optimization & Statistical Learning (MO&S) 2022 workshop at Northwestern University.
Had a great visit to University of Chicago, a highlight of which was getting a signed copy of the 2nd edition of Tensor Methods in Statistics.
Women in Data Science (WiDS22) was an excellent conference, including portraits from famous illustrator Liza Donnelly.
In many papers on tensor decomposition since 2014, the simultaneous diagonalization algorithm is incorrectly referenced as Jennrich’s algorithm. This method should not be attributed to Jennrich but instead cited as Leurgans, Ross, and Abel (1993).
AMR is a newly-formed math organization whose officers hold views antithetical to diversity and inclusion. For the sake of the field of mathematics, please do not encourage this organization in any way.
I will try to now and then post some pictures that remind me of great times in my career. This is a picture that I featured in my office for more than a decade!
I have joined the Board of Advisors for the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation (IMSI).
After more than 20 fantastic years at Sandia, I am calling it quits this coming summer. I am forever indebted to my wonderful Sandia colleagues, past and present, who made my years at Sandia incredibly rewarding. I will be an independent researcher and consultant under the auspices of my business called MathSci.ai.
