Submitted Nov 13, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The Department of Statistics at Yale University consists of 7 faculty members, 2 staff, and about 25 graduate students. We have active research programs in statistical information theory, statistical genetics and bioinformatics, bayesian methods, statistical computing, graphical methods, model selection, asymptotics, and other topics. Our faculty and students are also active in collaborative research with other departments throughout the university, including computer science, biological sciences, social sciences, physical sciences, engineering, bioinformatics, economics and applied mathematics.

Submitted Nov 13, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics Yale University computational mathematics program covers areas related to fast computation and processing.

Submitted Jun 30, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics This site is devoted to Cellular Automata, one of the most intriguing and admirable aspects of mathematics. Perhaps you have already heard about the Game of Life, one of oldest and bestexplored Cellular Automata. Game of Life is only a tip of a large cellular iceberg. Actually, the count of even simple Cellular Automata is estimated to be *much* larger then the count of particles in our Universe! I decided to explore a bit of this huge world. To do it I developed my own Cellular Automata simulator, MCell, and with help from many people I collected a big library of Cellular Automata families, rules, and patterns. You can see much of my collection on these pages. Anyhow, the pages show only a static side of Cellular Automata. Cellular Automata are in fact very dynamic, so I strongly encourage you to download the free MCell software and/or run the MJCell Java applet to see the patterns running! And then, who knows, maybe you will also add something new to the Cellular Automata world.

Submitted Apr 29, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The Clay Mathematics Institute is a privately funded operating foundation dedicated to increasing and disseminating mathematics. CMI supports the work of leading researchers at various stages of their careers and organizes conferences, workshops, and an annual summer school. Contemporary breakthroughs are recognized by its annual Research Award. The Institute operates in programs that introduce high school students to mathematical research: the Clay Research Academy, the Ross and PROMYS programs. CMI organizes public lectures and publishes conference proceedings and monographs. The Institute is a principal funder of the Independent University of Moscow. A recent initiative was the preparation of a digital edition of the oldest extant manuscript of Euclid's Elements (Byzantium, 888 AD).

Submitted Apr 28, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The overall mission of the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is to make connections between a broad spectrum of mathematicians and scientists, to launch new collaborations, to better inform mathematicians and scientists about interdisciplinary problems, and to broaden the range of applications in which mathematics is used.

Submitted Apr 28, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The School of Mathematics is an international center of research and postdoctoral training in many diverse aspects of mathematics including pure mathematics, combinatorics, mathematical physics and applied mathematics. Fifty to sixty mathematicians are invited to the School each year to study with the Faculty and to pursue research projects of their own. A small number of memberships for a longer period of time are also available. Funding for candidates comes from a variety of sources. Some mathematicians are funded by the Institute, others receive financial aid from their home institutions, and a portion receive grants from governments or foundations.

Submitted Apr 15, 2005 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) was founded and is maintained by the five main universities in Western Canada (Simon Fraser University, University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of Victoria) with the objectives of: Promoting research in mathematics; Strengthening ties and collaboration between the mathematical scientists in the academic community, in the industrial and business sector, and in government; Enhancing education and training in mathematical sciences, and broadening communication of mathematical ideas; and Creating strong mathematical partnerships and links within Canada and with organizations in other countries, focusing on the nations of the Pacific Rim.

Submitted Nov 03, 2004 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center is the headquarters for the IBM Research Division  the largest industrial research organization in the world with 8 labs worldwide. Established in 1961, the Watson Research Center is located in Westchester County, New York and Cambridge, Massachusetts and spans 3 sites and 4 buildings  the main laboratory in Yorktown Heights, 2 buildings in Hawthorne, and 1 building in Cambridge. An approximate 1,790 people are employed between these 4 facilities. The research focuses primarily on physical and computer sciences, semiconductors, systems technology, mathematics and information services, applications & solutions.

Submitted Nov 02, 2004 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications in a very wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and from overseas to interact in research over an extended period.

Submitted Nov 02, 2004 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) exists to further mathematical research through broadly based programs in the mathematical sciences and closely related activities. From its beginnning in 1982 the Institute has been primarily funded by the NSF with additional support from other government agencies, private foundations, and academic and corporate Sponsors. Now more than 1700 mathematical scientists visit MSRI each year, many for substantial periods.

Submitted Nov 01, 2004 to Science Research Groups » Mathematics Since the mid1970s, the Chaos Group at Maryland has done extensive research in various areas of chaotic dynamics ranging from the theory of dimensions, fractal basin boundaries, chaotic scattering, controlling chaos, etc. It is hoped that the knowledge we have gained is of use to others, and it is the objective of this web site to disseminate those fruits of labor. It is found that the ideas of chaos have been very fruitful in such diverse disciplines as biology, economics, chemistry, engineering, fluid mechanics, physics, just to name a few. Chaos is a multidisciplinary science, and this is reflected in the fact that the members of the group are affiliated with diverse departments and institutes. The Maryland Chaos Group has been ranked #1 (tied with the University of Texas, Austin) in the country by U.S. News!
