Mathematical Reviews (MR) and Zentralblatt MATH (Zbl) cooperate in

maintaining the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) which is used

by these reviewing services and others to categorize items in the

mathematical sciences literature. The current version, MSC2000, is being

revised for use in 2010. MR and Zbl welcome community input into this

revision process. Comments can be submitted through the classification

feedback form

http://www.msc2010.org/msc-feedback.php

Arizona.

The SIAG/APDE Prize, established in 2005, is awarded to the author(s) of

the most outstanding paper on a topic in PDE published in English in a

peer-reviewed journal within the four calendar years preceding the year

of the award. A candidate paper must

January 1, 2003, and December 31, 2006.
It must contain significant

research contributions to the field of analysis of PDE, as commonly

defined in the mathematical literature, with direct or potential

applications.

The award will consist of a plaque and a certificate containing the

award citation. At least one of the
awardees is expected to attend the

award ceremony and to present the paper as a plenary lecture at the

meeting. Travel expenses will be
available to reimburse one speaker.

Nominations should include a full bibliographic citation for the paper

and a brief statement outlining the justification for the nomination in

terms of its importance and impact.
Nominations should be addressed to

Professor Mary Pugh, Chair, SIAG/APDE Prize Committee and sent by May

15, 2007 to J. M. Littleton at littleton@siam.org
. Inquiries should be

addressed to littleton@siam.org . Complete calls for nominations for

Topic #12 ----------- OP-SF NET 14.2 ----------- March 15,
2007

From: OP-SF NET Editors

Subject: About the Activity Group

The SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions

consists of a broad set of mathematicians, both pure and applied. The

Group also includes engineers and scientists, students as well as

experts. We have around 140 members scattered about in more than 20

countries. Whatever your specialty might be, we welcome your

participation in this classical, and yet modern, topic. Our WWW home

page is:

http://math.nist.gov/opsf/

This is a convenient point of entry to all the services provided by the

Group. Our Webmaster is Bonita Saunders
(bonita.saunders@nist.gov).

The Activity Group sponsors OP-SF NET, which is transmitted periodically

by SIAM. It is provided as a free
public service; membership in SIAM

is not required. The OP-SF Net Editors
are Diego Dominici

(dominicd@newpaltz.edu) and Martin
Muldoon (muldoon@yorku.ca).

To receive the OP-SF NET, send your name and email address to

poly-request@siam.org .

Back issues can be obtained at the WWW addresses:

http://staff.science.uva.nl/~thk/opsfnet

http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/JAT/DATA/OPSFNET/opsfnet.html

http://cio.nist.gov/esd/emaildir/lists/opsfnet/maillist.html

For several years the Activity Group sponsored a printed Newsletter,

most recently edited by Rafael Yanez. Back issues are accessible at:

http://www.mathematik.uni-kassel.de/~koepf/siam.html

Given the widespread availability of email and the Internet, the need for

the printed Newsletter has decreased. Discussions are underway concerning

whether an annual printed Newsletter or Annual Report should be

instituted.

SIAM has several categories of membership, including low-cost categories

for students and residents of developing countries. For current

information on SIAM and Activity Group membership, contact:

Mathematics

anything of interest to the

special functions and orthogonal
polynomials community. This

includes announcements of
conferences, forthcoming books, new

software, electronic archives,
research questions, job openings.
