After a couple of months of waiting for my first SIAM news, it finally arrived today!
So I thought that I would take this opportunity to give an advice. If you are in a university that supports SIAM, the society for industrial and applied mathematics, check to see if you can become a member for free. They have some pretty good discounts on top books, offer precious information about new pieces of scientific software and opportunities for networking. Look here to see if you are eligible for free membership.
