BATON ROUGE – SIAM Fellow and Michael F. and Roberta Nesbit McDonald Professor of Mathematics Susanne Brenner has been selected as managing editor of Mathematics of Computation, one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious research journals in computational mathematics.
Established in 1943 by the National Research Council, Mathematics of Computation, is devoted to high quality computational mathematics research articles covering the areas of numerical analysis, computational discrete mathematics, including number theory, algebra and combinatorics, and related fields such as stochastic numerical methods.
“Sue is an exceptional scientist, researcher and educator,” said Kevin Carman, dean of LSU’s College of Science. “Her contributions to the college and international research in computational mathematics are truly extraordinary.”
Mathematics of Computation has been an American Mathematics Society publication since 1962. The journal has been led by a number of notable computational mathematicians including E. Isaacson, New York University (1966-1974); J.H. Bramble, Cornell University (1975-1983); W. Gautschi, Purdue University (1984-1995); L.B. Wahlbin, Cornell University (1996-2002); and C.W. Shu, Brown University (2003-2011).
Currently, Brenner serves on the editorial boards of 12 mathematical journals. In 2010, she was named Fellow of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics. She is also a recipient of the 2005 Humboldt Award for Senior U.S. Scientists from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Bonn, Germany.
Brenner’s research interests include numerical analysis, finite element methods, multigrid methods and domain decomposition methods.
