Abstract

Interviews and dialogues have been a special way to transmit science since Socrates. They are maybe the only way to get the stories behind most discoveries. I was so positively impressed by the interview of Gene Golub by Nicholas J. Higham [1] that the idea of doing one with Paul Van Dooren obsessed me for a while. After a few attempts to arrange a meeting, I finally got an occasion during the Householder Symposium at Tahoe City. On June 15, 2011, when most participants were on an excursion (Paul did have a kind of cold), we sat in a corner of the Granhall of the Granlibakken Conference Center and we did the interview. This document provides an edited transcript of that dialogue. The bibliography contains some refernces in the interview.
