Published on August 10, 2010
Brown University has been awarded $15.5 million by the National Science Foundation to form a national mathematics research institute, one of eight in the United States and the first of its kind in New England.
The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) plans to leverage internationally recognized programs and scholarly conferences to attract an array of scholars in computational and experimental math from around the world.
Operations will begin in fall of 2011, bringing Rhode Island another step forward in its effort to develop a knowledge economy. The Institute will support a full-time staff of five plus two full-time postdoctoral researchers each year and up to seven postdoctoral researchers each semester.
