Established in 1982 by the National Science Foundation, the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications (IMA) is affiliated with the University’s School of Mathematics, Institute for Technology, and the Minnesota Center for Industrial Mathematics. The mission of the IMA is to increase the impact of mathematics by fostering interdisciplinary research, by linking mathematics with important scientific and technological problems from other disciplines and industry, and by the continuing education of those involved in applied mathematical research.
