Frontiers Society

Whether one is seeking algorithms to locate disease genes, designing and predicting the properties of new materials, modeling the effect of economic changes on our climate, or discovering new methods to design trajectories for exploring the solar system, the need for cutting-edge, innovative mathematics is critical in many fields. Fostering new mathematical techniques and training a new generation of mathematical scientists who will develop and use them lies at the heart of IPAM’s mission.

You can help IPAM achieve its mission by joining IPAM’s Frontiers Society. You can make a donation here. Any donation is appreciated, and no amount is too small. Members of the Frontiers Society will receive regular updates about everything that is new at IPAM.
