# 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**(Berkeley Lab) provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe. ESnet, the **Energy Sciences Network**, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The **National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center** (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 7,000-plus scientists at national laboratories and universities. NERSC and ESnet are both Department of Energy Office of Science National User Facilities. The Computational Research Division (CRD) conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation.

Berkeley Lab addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science. The **DOE Office of Science** is the United States' single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
