Math Impacts Study

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will convene an ad hoc committee of experts to prepare narratives and graphics to identify and illustrate the impact of the mathematical sciences. The collection of narratives and graphics will be the central focus of a consensus report that broadly describes the fundamental role of the mathematical sciences in the U.S. economy, national security, health and medicine, and other science, engineering, and technology domains. The report will be informed by literature reviews and input from experts, including professional societies, mathematical research funders, and leaders in the mathematical sciences research communities (including in academia, industry, government, and national laboratories).

The committee and National Academies’ staff members will prepare three derivative products: (1) a brochure containing the narratives and figures and a summary of the report’s analysis; (2) a Web interactive infographic that links to more details on selected topics; and (3) a public webinar series.
