2021 SIAM CSE Best Paper Prize

02-16-2021

2021 SIAM CSE Best Paper Prize (SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering Best Paper Prize) awarded to Professor Jianlin Xia and collaborators.

The SIAG/CSE Best Paper Prize is awarded to James Vogel, Jianlin Xia, Stephen Cauley, and Venkataramanan Balakrishnan "for impressive work which reduces the computational complexity of an eigendecomposition of Hermitian matrices from cubic to log-squared linear by utilizing the hierarchical semi-separable structure."

Xia is a professor in the Department of Mathematics at Purdue University, with a courtesy appointment in the Department of Computer Science. He received his PhD in Applied Mathematics at UC Berkeley. His research interests lie in numerical linear algebra and numerical analysis. The current focus of his work is on structured matrices, fast solvers, randomized methods, and their connections to broader numerical problems. He was named a University Faculty Scholar in 2018 and received an NSF CAREER Award in 2013. He currently serves on the editorial boards of multiple numerical analysis journals.
