|National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)|
|Part of the Information Technology Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (an agency of the Department of Commerce, U.S. Government), this was formerly CAML. Mathematicians of the Applied and Computational Mathematics Division develop and analyze mathematical models of phenomena; design and analyze computational methods and experiments; transform these methods into efficient numerical algorithms for modern, high-performance computers; and validate and extend the models by comparing them with experiments. Major research interest areas include crystal growth, fluid flow, electromagnetic waves, magnetic materials, molecular dynamics, foams, and polymers. Frequently occurring mathematical areas include partial differential equations, random processes, and inverse problems.|
