Mathematical Analysis and Modeling Group


The Mathematical Analysis and Modeling Group performs research and maintains expertise in applied mathematics, mathematical modeling, numerical analysis, and scientific computing for application to multidisciplinary problems of interest to the NIST measurement science program; in particular, maintains and applies expertise in mathematical subdisciplines such as differential equations, nonlinear dynamics, inverse and ill-posed problems, continuous optimization, and image analysis, for application in such areas as materials modeling, computational electromagnetics and acoustics, electro-optics, fluid mechanics, fracture and deformation, nanotechnology, and systems biology; in collaboration with NIST and outside scientists, develops and analyzes mathematical and computational models, methods, and tools necessary for the fundamental understanding of physical, biological, and information systems and processes; works with academia, industry, professional societies, consortia, and standards bodies on measurement science issues related to the modeling of such.
