2 07/11/2008SIAM Annual Meeting 2008DLB-2 DOE Mission Elements Energy Nuclear power, clean coal, fusion reactors, enhanced oil recovery, bio-fuels, reliability & security of electric power grid, new engine designs Environment Carbon sequestration, nuclear waste storage, environmental cleanup, climate research National Security Nuclear stockpile stewardship
3 07/11/2008Applied Math at the DOEDavid L. Brown What kinds of questions can CS&E help answer for DOE? Can we predict the operating characteristics of a clean coal power plant? Answering these and other important questions involves study of increasingly complex physical and engineered systems How stable is the plasma containment in a Tokamak? How quickly is climate change occurring and what are the uncertainties in the predicted time scales? How quickly can the US recover if part of the power grid became inoperable? How can new materials be designed with a specified desirable set of properties?

8 CS&E Community Involvement Learn more about ASCR programs Be a reviewer Panel reviews Postal reviews Participate in DOE workshops ASCR-sponsored Basic Energy Sciences (BES), Biological and Environmental Research (BER), Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE), Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Nuclear Energy (NE) Identify future research needs Generate strong community interest ACCOMPLISHMENTS!
9 New Breakthroughs report Each of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Applications will have a breakthroughs report to support FY11 DOE budget request Each report will look back about eight years – the SciDAC era What are the ten most important mathematical breakthroughs to computational science? Not necessarily scaling issues, could be more science per flop/byte stored/byte transmitted Please send your suggestions to
