Welcome to the Norbert Wiener Center for Harmonic Analysis and Applications!

The golden age of Mathematical Engineering is upon us. The Norbert Wiener Center, in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland, College Park, reflects the importance of integrating new mathematical technology and algorithms in the context of current industrial and academic needs and problems.

The Norbert Wiener Center has three goals:

Mathematical Engineering in the 21st century is analogous to Mathematical Physics of the 20th century. Applied harmonic analysis and its theoretical underpinnings form the technological basis for Mathematical Engineering. The Norbert Wiener Center advances research, education, and interaction for this emerging field.
