SFU will build a $12 million interdisciplinary research facility in the mathematical and computational sciences. Known as IRMaCS, it will be located atop SFU's applied science building, and will be unique in Canada.
Mathematics professor Peter Borwein (left) will lead the project; his brother and fellow mathematician Jonathan Borwein (right) is a co-applicant. With funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund and the private sector, the project represents one of the biggest research awards ever for SFU.
Says Jonathan Borwein: "IRMaCS plays right into a magnificent SFU strength a concentration of world-class research and teaching expertise in theoretical computer science, computational pure math, and computational applied math. It will be the only facility of its kind in Canada."
