Applied and Computational Mathematics Division


We provide leadership within NIST in the application of applied and computational mathematics to the solution to science and engineering problems arising in measurement science and related applications. This is accomplished via a program of R&D in mathematical and computational techniques and tools, collaboration with NIST and external scientists, and the dissemination of reference data and software.

The ITL Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division was renamed Applied and Computational Mathematics on June 20, 2010

Details of technical activities of the Division are provided in our Yearly Reports: 201520142013201220112010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000.

You are invited to attend our Division Seminar Series.
