PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Brown University will host a celebration for the $15.5-million Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) at noon Monday, March 7, 2011. ICERM will occupy the top two floors of 121 South Main Street, which the University purchased in 2005.
ICERM is the first and only mathematics institute in New England funded by the National Science Foundation. It is charged with supporting research in a new field — the convergence of mathematics and computation. The research could spur advances in climate change, cryptography, cyber security, energy production and distribution, finance, personalized medicine, search engines, and social networks.
