About the Center:

DIMACS is the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science. It was founded in 1989 as an NSF funded Science and Technology Center (STC) and one of the New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology's Advanced Technology Centers. DIMACS facilitates research, education, and outreach in discrete mathematics, computer science theory, algorithms, mathematical and statistical methods, and their applications. Our multi-year special focus programs address research themes that require topical expertise in these areas, have potential for societal impact, and are poised for advance. Our educational programs include materials development for high school and college classsrooms, an extensive summer undergraduate research program, and teacher training programs.


DIMACS mission statement describes the goals of the center and some of the main programs.


DIMACS partners at Rutgers and elsewhere work together as organizers and implementors of programs in research, education and outreach.


DIMACS programs are governed by committees that select postdoctoral fellows, choose special year topics, etc.
