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
