The Applied and Computational Mathematics Division (ACMD) is charged with providing technical leadership within NIST in modern analytical and computational methods for solving mathematical problems of interest to American industry. This work includes the development and analysis of theoretical descriptions of phenomena (mathematical modeling); the design and analysis of requisite computational methods and experiments; the transformation of these methods into efficient numerical algorithms for high performance computers; the implementation of these methods in high-quality mathematical software; and the distribution of this software to potential clients.
