The Institute for Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (IAMCS) is fundamentally a collection of applied mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists dedicated to the promotion of leading edge research within the interdisciplinary field broadly known as the computational sciences. Computational science is both a fundamental research field and an enabling capacity, able to influence virtually every other field of scientific endeavor. It is our mission to engage in the underlying development of the core field of computational science through research on cutting edge problems that are motivated and framed by their ability to enable fundamental research in other disciplines.
