The mathematics department has recently acquired a 228-processor computing cluster through an NSF SCREMS grant. It allows top priority access for projects in the department, and is part of the University's much larger Center for Advanced Computing, where systems with thousands of processors are maintained for use by the university research community.
Computing facilities and recources are of extreme importance for mathematicians. At the University of Michigan, there is a strong commitment to keeping abreast of the latest developments. Computers are widely available for students in the Department. They are connected to central printers, and there are also copiers/scanners available in the administrative areas. Other computing resources, including freely available software, access to poster printing, and general IT help is available through LSA-IT.
An important resource for all faculty and graduate students is the Mathematics Library within the Shapiro Undergraduate Library. With a collection of 25,000 monographs and 750 regular journal subscriptions, it is one of the leading collections in the United States. Its open stacks and reading room are in the central Science Library at 3175 Shapiro and are available 130 hours per week. There is a long list of online journals and other resources. Math-SciNet is available for free use from any terminal connected to the central computing system.
