Title:Development and future direction of mathematical software packages
        -- high-performance technology, industrial‐academic cooperation and educational program --
From the 1990s, we have performed many research projects in various areas such as optimization, operations research, computer science, architecture, control, and high-performance computing; therefore we have developed many types of mathematical software packages for researchers of each area, industrial-academic cooperation, and educational programs.
We think that we need three important activities for development and dissemination of mathematical software packages as follows;
1: Adopting latest technologies in mathematical science, algorithm and data structure, and high-performance computing.
A mathematical software package itself must be a high-performance solver for solving mathematical problems quickly and accurately. A high-performance solver as an aggregate of latest technologies can attract many users' attention and pioneer new application areas.
2: Industrial‐academic cooperation and developing up new application fields.
We have performed many public relations activities for mathematical software packages which we have developed; however, Not only do we distribute mathematical software packages to users via Internet but we ourselves applies them to new areas with some enterprises.
3: Expanding educational programs.
We have some special educational programs for middle, high school and university students.
In this talk, we also discuss future directions of activities for mathematical software packages.
