Mathematics and Computer Science Division
Providing intellectual and technical leadership in the computing sciences ‐ applied mathematics, computer science, and computational science
To this end, we tackle the most important scientific problems of our nation ‐ problems that require innovative computational tools and technology for transformative science during the next several decades.
Our world-class research includes exciting initiatives in four key areas:
Extreme computing: exploring new approaches to system software, fault tolerance, and innovative programming models for next-generation computers
Big data: formulating novel techniques for managing, storing, analyzing, and visualizing the enormous amounts of data produced by leadership-class computers and large experimental facilities
Applied mathematics: formulating rigorous theory leading to fast algorithms, deployed in software on leading-edge computing platforms
Applications: working with scientists and engineers to apply our advanced algorithms and tools to applications critical to our society, such as life science, climate change, materials, and energy systems simulations
