Michigan Center for Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics (MCAIM)

People who wish to analyze nature without using mathematics must settle for a reduced understanding. (Richard Feynman)

The University of Michigan’s Center for Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics (MCAIM) has the broad aim of serving as the focal point for activities that integrate mathematics with the sciences across the University of Michigan. It currently operates within the University of Michigan Department of Mathematics and will be organized around yearly themes, will sponsor the Van Loo Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, organize topical workshops to identify and explore issues at the forefront of applied mathematics, hold advanced summer schools for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and host a short-term visitors program. The Center also strives to promote applied mathematical research at Michigan by other means, such as aiding searches for external funding and facilitating collaborative interactions.

MCAIM officially opened on October 17-18, 2016 with our Opening Symposium in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
