Sandia National Laboratories researcher Mike Heroux has been named editor-in-chief of the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) journal Transactions on Mathematical Software.
The quarterly publication, published by ACM, has been rated among the top 20 journals for its "impact factor"—roughly, the number of times its articles are cited by others.
Heroux has been involved in the development of mathematical software for more than 20 years. He started and leads The Trilinos Project, which is the largest single collection of open-source software libraries for scientific computing. He is also an author of other open software efforts such as Tramonto, Mantevo, BPKIT and Aztec.
At Cray Research in the 1990s, he developed algorithms and software for the Cray Scientific Libraries and was involved in development of the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS), de facto standards for linear algebra computations.
In addition to Heroux's new tasks at the ACM journal, he is an associate editor for the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics' Journal of Scientific Computing.
