Applied and Computational Mathematics
The Applied and Computational Mathematics Division (ACMD) is one of seven technical Divisions in ITL. ACMD provides leadership within NIST in the use of applied and computational mathematics to solve science and engineering problems arising in measurement science and related applications. In that role ACMD staff members
- perform research and development in applied mathematics and computational science and engineering, including analytical methods, numerical and symbolic algorithms, advanced computing and communications architectures and applications, and high performance scientific visualization;
- engage in peer-to-peer collaborations in the application of mathematical and computational technologies to NIST problems;
- develop and disseminate mathematical reference data, software, and related tools;
- and work with internal groups and external organizations to develop standards, test procedures, reference implementations, and other measurement technologies for advanced scientific computation on current and future architectures.
The technical work of the Division is organized into two broad areas:
- Mathematics of Metrology
- High Performance Computing and Visualization
and four special focus areas:
- Advanced Materials
- Quantum Information
- Foundations of Measurement Science for Information Systems
- Mathematical Knowledge Management
You are invited to attend our Division Seminar Series.
