Mathematical Sciences: 1988 Summer Institute On "Operator Theory/Operator Algebras and Applications" @ American Mathematical Society
This project supports a three week mathematical research institute to be organized by the American Mathematical Society during the summer of 1988. The institute will be the thirtysixth in a series planned with the purpose of bringing together a large group of mathematicians who are interested in a particular field of mathematical research. Emphasis is placed primarily on instruction at a very high level with seminars and lectures by distinguished mathematicians in related fields. The 1988 institute will focus on "Operator Theory/Operator Algebras and Applications". During the last twenty years operator theory has come of age. The subject has developed in several directions, using new and powerful methods that led to the solutions of basic problems thought to be inaccessible in the sixties. These developments have made mutually enriching contact with other areas of mathematics, including algebraic topology and index theory, complex analysis in one and several variables, and probability theory. This institute will summarize the current progress and examine the common and unifying theories that exist in the subject.

Mathematical Sciences: Task Force On Employment of Mathematicians @ American Mathematical Society
This project partially supports the work of a task force of the American Mathematical Society to study the current employment opportunities for new doctorates in the U.S. Long term demographic studies by the National Science Foundation indicate potential shortfalls by the end of this decade in our nation's science personnel base. One the other hand, in 1990 declines in the number of jobs available and increases in the number of applicants were noted in the mathematical sciences community. Followup surveys indicated disturbing signs pointing to a shortage of employment opportunities in the short term. This project supports a task force of the American Mathematical society to assess the current situation, make recommendations on ways to mitigate what may be a shortterm supply and demand imbalance in the academic employment market, develop longterm strategies to reduce some of the current inefficiencies in the employmentseeking process, and report their finding to the mathematical sciences community. The project is timely and important for the vitality of the U.S. mathematical sciences personnel base. The results will be made available to the scientific community, the professional societies, and interested government agencies. In the latter case, the results may help in developing appropriate strategies for the support of postdoctoral researchers.

(Sger)Research Into the Barriers to Changing the Receptionand Rewards System in the Mathematical Sciences @ American Mathematical Society
The Joint Policy Board for Mathematics, representing the American Mathematical Society, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics is conducting a study of the recognition and rewards system in the mathematical sciences. Numerous recent reports point to this system as a key to reforming the K through 12 education system, to revitalizing undergraduate science and mathematics education, and to elevating the level of technology transfer in order to boost economic competitiveness. The study also responds to the increasing awareness of the importance of interdisciplinary work and of the participation of mathematical scientists in the education of individuals who plan to work in industry and government. This initial study will focus on the barriers to changing the rewards structure and will be implemented as a series of case studies. The results of this research will be reported to NSF and to the mathematics community through the news publications of the three organizations that comprise the JPBM. This research is expected to be the basis of further study of the system that will lead to a set of recommendations and plan of action to produce a recognition and rewards system that is consistent with the missions of institutions of higher education and with the diverse responsibilities of college and university faculty.//

Mathematical Sciences: 1993 Summer Research Institute: Stochastic Analysis @ American Mathematical Society
In recent years the stochastic point of view has achieved great prominence, both as an active area of probability theory and as a powerful tool in problems of analysis, geometry, and mathematical physics. For example, the classical Ito theory of stochastic differential equations, which defines a finite dimensional diffusion process, already leads to many interesting connections with analysis in Euclidean space and finitedimensional differentiable manifolds. The same stochastic differential equations can also be used to define a stochastic flow, which is a diffusion process on the group of diffeomorphisms, an infinite dimensional space. This naturally leads to the study of other infinitedimensional processes, especially those defined by stochastic partial differential equations. This project will support the 1993 AMS Summer Research Institute on Stochastic Analysis to be held July 1130, 1993 at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. This Institute is the 41st in a series designed with the purpose of bringing together a group of mathematicians interested in a particular field of mathematical research. Emphasis is placed on instruction at a very high level with seminars and lectures by distinguished mathematicians in related fields, in order to promote interaction between participants while broadening their mathematical perspectives. The goal of the Institute will be to highlight the main directions of the field through principal lectures by leaders in the following general areas: stochastic (ordinary) differential equations, applications to analysis, applications to geometry, stochastic flows, infinite dimensional problems, and stochastic partial differential equations.

Mathematical Sciences: 1993 AmsSiam Summer Seminar: the Mathematics of Tomography, Impedance Imaging and Integral Geometry @ American Mathematical Society
Computed tomography has grown from numerical analysis and algorithm development for planar Xray tomography scanners to encompass a broad range of imaging techniques. Impedance imaging systems apply current to the surface of a body, measure the induced voltages on the surface, and from this information, reconstruct an approximation to the electrical conductivity and/or electrical permittivity in the interior. Mathematically, the problem is ill posed and nonlinear, and a frequently used approximation reduces to a Radon transform. Integral geometry is the mathematical basis for tomography and one model for impedance imaging. The Radon transform on lines is the model of Xray tomography and generalizations model emission tomography and problems in ultrasound. Tomographers use integral geometric theorems, such as inversion formulas and range characterizations, to create and improve reconstruction methods. This project will support the AMSSIAM Summer Seminar in Applied Mathematics on the Mathematics of Tomography, Impedance Imaging, and Integral Geometry to be held June 718, 1993 at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. One of the features of tomography is the strong relationship between high level mathematics (such as harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, microlocal analysis, and Lie group theory) and applications to medical imaging, impedance imaging, radiotherapy, and industrial nondestructive evaluation. The conference has the following main goals: (1) to give researchers in the field the opportunity to define and articulate the main problems of current interest and to isolate common themes and approaches and (2) to strengthen the connection between the pure and applied aspects of these areas and to facilitate dialogue between researchers in the various areas. Graduate students, recent doctoral recipients, and new researchers in the field will be encouraged to attend.

International Research Fellow Awards: ThreeDimensional Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition of Superconducting Microelectromechanical Devices @ Louisiana Tech University
9703934 Maxwell The International Research Fellow Awards Program enables U.S. scientists and engineers to conduct three to twenty four months of research abroad. The program's awards provide opportunities for joint research, and the use of unique or complementary facilities, expertise and experimental conditions abroad. This award will support a sixmonth postdoctoral research visit by Dr. James L. Maxwell of Louisiana Tech University to work with Dr. Mats Boman at Uppsala University in Sweden. This project involves the study of laserinduced chemical vapor deposition (LCVD) and, in particular, the use of LCVD to manufacture threedimensional micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS). Few traditional micromachining processes are capable of producing highlythreedimensional MEMS devices. Threedimensional LCVD (3DLCVD) is a mode of pyrolytic vapor deposition where highaspect ratio microstructures can be generated. Using 3DLCVD, the researchers plan to fabricate a threedimensional micro inductor, a superconducting microinductor, and coils which will be used to test the feasibility of laserdeposited Ni Ti shapememory actuators in MEMS devices. Dr. Boman was the first to produce complex shapes and useful devices via 3D LCVD and Dr. Maxwell was the first to demonstrate feedback control of growth rates during 3DLCVD which allows precise, continual control of layered and freeform growth. The University of Uppsala has the best equipped laboratory for 3DLCVD in the world. ***

A Survey of Undergraduate Programs in the Mathematical and Statistical Sciences in the United States and the Publication of a Statistical Abstract of the Results @ American Mathematical Society
This threeyear project, endorsed by the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS), will be the eighth CBMS survey of undergraduate mathematics education in the United States. As in past years, the survey will report on curricular, enrollment, and personnel issues in undergraduate mathematics, creating a longitudinal data base of information not available anywhere else. Publications from these surveys have assisted governmental and academic administrators as they make resource allocation decisions, have assisted the mathematical community in understanding the curricular and personnel problems that it faces, and have served as a data source for almost every national report on the mathematical sciences community.
CBMS2000, as the survey is called, will include more than 600 of the 2,500 U. S. departments of mathematical sciences (broadly defined) in twoand fouryear institutions. The impact of calculus reform, the teaching of statistics in mathematics departments, and the preservice education of K12 mathematics teachers are likely to be among special focus areas.
Changes from earlier surveys will include a greater emphasis on undergraduate statistical education, enhanced parellelism between the twoyear and fouryear college questionnaires, the use of a university statistical laboratory to carry out the analysis of survey data, and wider dissemination of the final report to federal decisionmakers. The entire report will be made available for electronic dissemination through the internet.

Travel Support For Junior Mathematicians @ American Mathematical Society
This grant provides funds to support approximately 150 travel awards to US mathematicians within six years of receipt of their doctoral degree to attend the special AMS meeting in August, 2000, "The Mathematical Challenges of the 21st Century," to be held on the campus of the University of California at Los Angeles. The program for this meeting includes lectures by thirty worldrenowned mathematicians.
The phenomenal advances in mathematical research during the past halfcentury has involved both the solution of centuriesold celebrated mathematical problems as well as major applications of sophisticated mathematical concepts and tools to the other sciences and in applications. The U.S. mathematical community has played a central role in this development, as has the cadre of brilliant young mathematicians fostered by that community.
The turn of the century (and the new millennium) will undoubtedly see an intensification and acceleration of these trends. In particular, developments of the last two decades indicate a deeper and closer relation between research mathematics and other frontline areas in the sciences than was the case in earlier decades. At this point of transition between centuries, it is natural that the vital and diverse community of mathematicians take stock of recent mathematical advancements and look forward to the mathematical themes that will form the core of research developments in the coming century. These travel grants will enable many of the US's young mathematicians to be an integral part of this process.

Summer Institute On Algebraic Geometry @ American Mathematical Society
Algebraic Geometry Summer Institute (Proposal DMS0456683.)
A large scale summer institute in algebraic geometry, three weeks in duration, will be held during JulyAugust 2005 at the University of Washington, Seattle. Organizational support will be provided by the American Mathematical Society and the Clay Mathematics Institute. Each week will have a general topic as a focus and at the same time will include a component of core "classical" algebraic geometry. The foci will be: Mathematical Physics in Algebraic Geometry; Combinatorics, Commutative Algebra and Classical Algebraic Geometry; and Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry. Three plenary morning lecture series will be held in each week, lecturers having been selected as leading researchers who are at the same time exemplary expositors. In addition, leading specialists will be invited to serve as seminar leaders, and will select high impact lectures given by the best lecturers for afternoon seminars. Additional activities will include the CMI distinguished lectures and an evening graduate program.
Algebraic geometry, the study of geometric shapes defined by polynomial equations, is a vast generalization of the highschool topic "analytic geometry". It has enjoyed much crossfertilization in past decades with areas in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, computing and theoretical physics. One way American algebraic geometers have maintained the vibrancy of the field is by holding a large scale, NSFfunded summer institute about every decade, an institute which aims to bring participants up to the forefront of research in the salient direction the field has taken in the previous years, and to project directions which the field is expected to take in the following years. These institutes have had a crucial formative role on the subject, with enormous impact especially on the emerging careers of young researchers. This summer institute project aims to follow in their footsteps.

A Study of Undergraduate Programs in the Mathematical and Statistical Sciences in the United States and the Publication of the Results @ American Mathematical Society
With NSF support and with sponsorship from the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS), the CBMS2005 project will be the ninth in a sequence of quinquennial surveys and reports that provide comprehensive national data on the undergraduate mathematical sciences in departments ranging from twoyear to doctoral.
Professional society reports have emphasized the need for better data on the nation's undergraduate mathematical sciences programs in order to allow leaders at every level from local departments to national agencies to assess existing activities, to plan future growth, and to be effective advocates for their programs. Based on a carefully designed CBMS2005 survey of the nation's undergraduate mathematical sciences programs, the CBMS2005 project will address that need through published reports of the most detailed and reliable data on the nation's undergraduate mathematical sciences.
CBMS2005 will continue longterm crosssectional studies initiated in previous CBMS reports, and will investigate special topics proposed by professional society committees as being particularly important today. These special topics are likely to include: the mathematical preparation of K8 teachers; the impact of reform movements on undergraduate curriculum, pedagogy, and technology use; the growth of ``dual enrollment'' as a way for advanced high school students to get college credit while still in high school; faculty diversity and educational background; the shift from permanent to temporary faculty noted in the CBMS2000 report; and comparison of availability of advanced courses for mathematics majors in various types of fouryear colleges and universities.
CBMS2005 will involve an unprecedented level of cooperation between members of the project steering committee (who come from nine different universities); the Joint Data Committee of the AMS, ASA, IMS, and MAA; committees of various professional societies; and statisticians at the University of North Carolina.

A Model For Improved Technological Education in Northern New Mexico. @ University of New Mexico
The University of New MexicoLos Alamos (UNMLA), in partnership with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Santa Fe Community College, is redesigning the Applied Technologies (AT) associate's program to include degree concentrations in electromechanical, solar, and nanotechnology as an effort to prepare more highly skilled technicians to support the region's emerging need for hightech employees in these areas. This critical need is given special urgency based on the State of New Mexico's vision and plan for the development of a new "green" economy.
The project involves an equipment overhaul, in addition to rigorous curriculum and instructional improvements in the three content areas noted above. Targeting high school students and teachers, the project articulates a career pathway for underrepresented students that leads to participation in advanced technical education, as well as opportunities at four year institutions . Problembased learning incorporating engineering design principles and an interdisciplinary thematic approach guide the strategy for teaching and learning. The project also supplements instruction with authentic internship experiences at supporting companies and national laboratories. A total of 65 students will have moved through the program at its completion. The project takes advantage of UNMLA's pilot faculty share program supported by LANL and Santa Fe Community College as a means to build institutional capacity and sustain the efforts of the work. Thus, this important initiative serves as a model for revising and enhancing a preexisting degree program, specifically targeting underrepresented student populations. The support and commitments at the state and local level ensure the efforts to build capacity to meet the demands of the participating institutions and the growing needs of the new economy.

Supporting the Conference Series: Nsf/Cbms Regional Research Conferences in the Mathematical Sciences @ American Mathematical Society
The NSF/CBMS series of Regional Research Conferences in the Mathematical Sciences is an ongoing project administered by the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) and supported continuously by NSF for the past 41 years. Each conference features a distinguished lecturer who delivers a sequence of ten lectures on a topic of important current research in one sharply focused area of the mathematical sciences. This award to the American Mathematical Society, with subcontract to CBMS, supports CBMS in its efforts to publicize conferences and administer the resulting publications, fostering greater dissemination of material related to cutting edgetopics and increasing the impact of the conferences in the community. The individual conferences are supported on separate NSF awards to host institutions.
The purpose of the NSF/CBMS conference series is to promote research in areas of the mathematical sciences which have recently seen significant new results and which hold promise for continued significant development. A conference achieves that purpose by having the principal lecturer, who is both a major researcher in the area of the conference and a good expositor, deliver 10 lectures over a five day period to the participants. The lectures typically cover the recent development of the field and chart the possible new directions and open problems. Thus the format of the conferences is primarily educational, but at the research level. Approximately onehalf of the participants at these conferences are graduate students and postdocs and the conferences give them a good perspective on both the current research and the interesting open problems in an important area of the mathematical sciences. The lecturer promises to prepare a substantial expository monograph based upon his or her lectures. The resulting monograph reaches a broader audience and provides an introduction to readers who wish to begin research in the field. Moreover, the conferences are typically held at institutions that are not yet among the top research institutions, but which are interested in enhancing their local research activity.

In addition, CBMS2015 will focus on a selection of topics of importance to leaders of various organizations concerned with undergraduate education in the mathematical sciences. The topics include, but are not limited to: (1) evidencebased teaching practices; (2) practices in distancelearning courses; (3) instructional strategies in College Algebra, Calculus I, and Elementary Statistics; (4) instructional strategies and delivery methods in developmental mathematics; (5) assessment of mathematics and statistics programs; (5) data on gender and underrepresented groups; (6) research and internship opportunities in the mathematical sciences for undergraduate students; and (6) other fulltime faculty (faculty at fouryear departments that are fulltime, but not eligible for tenure).
This project is funded jointly by the Directorate for Education and Human Resources, Division of Undergraduate Education, and the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Division of Mathematical Sciences.
