Insuring Our Nation’s Future
in Science and Technology
Storing and identifying the digitized version of millions of fingerprints is an almost inconceivably enormous task.
Uncompressed, the FBI’s current
fingerprint files would consist of 200 terabytes.
A new piece of mathematics, wavelets, makes data compression fast, relatively routine, and much less
expensive; so that storage is feasible and retrieval is fast.
Why the MSI now?
Assessment I (Odom report)
Senior Assessment Panel of the International Assessment of the U.S. Mathematical Sciences, March 1998, at the NSF.
The panel’s conclusion:
“Based on present trends, it is unlikely that the U.S. will be able to maintain its world leadership in the mathematical sciences.”

DMS depends on the mathematical sciences community for its staffing
In 2002 DMS will need new program directors in:
Interdisciplinary Math (in particular, Math Biology)
Applied Mathematics/Computational Mathematics
Statistics and Probability
We are interested in applications from researchers from all fields.
