  • This proposal summarizes activities conducted by the Board on Mathematical Sciences (BMS) during the period August 1, 1994 to July 31, 1995 and describes future plans of the Board for the period August 1, 1995 to July 31, 1998. We are requesting core support in the amount of $105,000 ($35,000 each year) from the Department of Energy for the additional three-year period. The BMS activities supported exclusively by core funding are the annual Department Chairs Colloquia, the National Science and Technology Symposia, specific reports, the initiation of all projects, continuous oversight of all activities, and partial core support of themore » Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics (CATS). Other activities of the Board include giving recommendations on research directions to federal agencies, and reports on education in the mathematical sciences, interaction of mathematical sciences with other areas, health of the mathematical sciences, and emerging research directions.« less
  • This is a progress report on the activities of the Board on Mathematical Sciences (BMS) of the Commission on Physical Sciences, Mathematics, and Applications, National Research Council (NRC), for the first year of the above referenced grant for Board core support, and a request to the Department of Energy (DOE) for the second year of funding in the amount of $31,110 under that grant for the period August 1, 1990--July 31, 1991. In awarding this grant in 1989, the DOE and other member agencies of the Interagency Committee on Extramural Mathematics Programs (ICEMAP) established levels of total ICEMAP core supportmore » for the Board over the referenced three-year period and corresponding levels of total support and support by year from the six participating ICEMAP agencies (AFOSR, ARO, DOE, NSA, NSF, and ONR). The amount requested herein and the activities proposed for the coming second year of support correspond to those set in 1989 during deliberations on the three-year proposal. As this request is for the second year of funding for activities covered by a three-year proposal and award, this report is limited to an update of progress over the first year and plans for the second year. As the original proposal provided a progress report through calendar year 1988 and plans for calendar year 1989, this report presents the progress for 1989 to March 1990, and plans for 1990--1991. The Board, with its committees and panels, expended considerable energy along several fronts in 1989. This will result in the release of 18 publications, in addition to the anticipated start-up of five new studies leading to reports.« less
  • The Board provides a locus of activity and concern at the National Research Council for issues affecting the mathematical sciences; represents the mathematical sciences to National Academy of Sciences (NAS); and provides a forum for the NAS, government agencies, and the mathematical sciences community. In 1986, the Board sponsored the first of an annual series of symposia in conjunction with National Science and Technology Week. The Board also began in cooperation with NRC Mathematical Sciences Education Board a comprehensive study of university mathematics concerns (MS 2000 Project). Other committees and colloquia are also discussed.
  • The National Academies' Board on Mathematical Sciences and their Applications (BMSA) is a primary interface between the research enterprise and federal agencies that rely on the mathematical sciences. The Board provides objective and authoritative advice on how best to apply the tools of mathematics, statistics, operations research, financial engineering, computational modeling, computational science, information analysis, and decision analysis to practical problems of national importance. In so doing, the Board strengthens the policy-making process and increases the visibility of, and appreciation for, the mathematical sciences while also identifying growth areas for the discipline. The Board consists of 18 pro bono expertsmore » from a broad range of quantitative fields, with experience in academia, industry, and national laboratories.« less
