Mathematical Software Group


The Mathematical Software Group performs research and maintains expertise in the development and application of mathematical algorithms and software in support of computational science within NIST as well as in industry and academia; develops fundamental mathematical algorithms of direct relevance to NIST programs, implements them in high-quality software, and consults and collaborates in their use; works to ensure the performance, usability, reliability, portability, and compatibility of mathematical software via demonstrations, testbeds, prototypes, reference implementations and the wide dissemination of information; and develops techniques, tools, and standards for representation, search, visualization, and exchange of mathematical objects and databases.
