Shaping Research and Innovation
The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) supports basic research in mathematics, focusing on the interplay between mathematics, computation, and experimentation. To that end, the institute invites leading scholars from around the world to study new ways of bringing computational and experimental methods to bear on a variety of mathematical problems. ICERM-hosted programs have included topics in pure mathematics as well as topics such as cybersecurity, climate modeling, and the challenges of exascale—systems capable of billions of calculations per second—computing.
In addition to semester-long programs and topical workshops, ICERM sponsors:
- Summer@ICERM, which enables undergraduates working in team settings to solve mathematical research problems developed by faculty experts.
- Collaborate@ICERM, which offers teams of three-to-six researchers the opportunity to spend five days on projects that have a computational or experimental component.
- GirlsGetMath@ICERM, which allows high school students to explore and be inspired by math during the summer.
