The National Research Council released its preliminary report Fueling Innovation and Discovery: The Mathematical Sciences in the 21st Century in advance of its final study The Mathematical Sciences in 2025. The report committee, including its vice chair UCLA Math Professor Emeritus Mark Green, identifies recent advances in the mathematical sciences or advances enabled by mathematical sciences research. The report aims to show general readers how these advances are changing our understanding of the world, creating new technologies, and transforming industries. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy's purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government.
