Welcome to MPI

MPI is a problem solving workshop that attracts leading applied mathematicians and scientists from universities, industry, and national laboratories. During the workshop, engineers and scientists from industry interact with the academic participants on problems of interest to their companies. In the past, these problems have included, but are not limited to

  • engineering and product design
  • process design and control
  • environmental remediation
  • scheduling and optimization
  • financial modeling

The challenge facing business and industry is to prosper in an era of rapid technological growth. Meeting the challenge requires continually improving productivity, resource management, and innovation, both to refine existing products and processes and to create new ones.

The MPI workshop is a resource that offers

  • clarification and formulation of a proposed or existing process
  • methods to solve problems of interest to industry
  • links with applied mathematicians and scientists from universities and national laboratories
  • access to advanced computing solutions and environments
  • fresh input of new ideas

Links to websites for each year's workshop website are on the left column of this page. Industry representatives who are interested in submitting a problem to an MPI workshop should first contact a member of the organizing committee for this coming year's workshop to discuss the suitability of the problem. The best results are achieved when the proposed problem is discussed and refined prior to the workshop.
