# CRD Mathematicians Help Launch New Math Journal

July 1, 2005

Four LBNL mathematicians – John Bell, Phil Colella, Alexandre Chorin and James Sethian – are members of the editorial team which has launched Communications in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (CAMCoS).

Other editors are Marsha Berger and Leslie Greengard of the Courant Institute, Rupert Klein of the Freie Universitaet Berlin, and Raz Kupferman of the Hebrew University. Bell, who is head of CRD’s Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering, is managing editor.

According to the CAMCoS Web site, “The Communications will publish high-quality original contributions to applied mathematics and computational science, with an emphasis on work where both the mathematics and the algorithms are of interest and where the mathematical outlook is at least partially new.

“The fields covered include the solution of ordinary, partial and stochastic differential equations; integral equations; numerical and analytical methods for fluid dynamics, biology, quantum and statistical mechanics; multiscale and underresolved problems; computational probability and Monte-Carlo methods. The emphasis in papers should be on methods and tools rather than on the specific physical conclusions in special cases.”

**About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab**

The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
