Brown U Gets $15.5 Million for Math Institute
Thursday, August 05, 2010
The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics, which will be run by Brown, will be 8th math institute that they have funded in the US and the only one in New England.
The plan is to bring scholars from all over the globe to further the research in mathematics and computation. The creation of ICERM will be a huge step in furthering the development in RI’s knowledge economy.
However this will not only strengthen the mathematics research at Brown, as the research can bring many benefits to all society. These include better development for search engines and more secure communications.
Jill Pipher, mathematics professor at Brown, is set to lead as the director of ICERM. Already, ICERM has partnered with Google, Microsoft, and IBM, which will all have someone sitting on the institute’s advisory board.
ICERM will become the training center for the newest generation of mathematical and computer scientists. In the big picture, they hope to take advantage of the vast growth in the power of computers.
