The IMI Colloquium in July  Date：Wednesday, 17 July 2013 16:4517:45 lecture  Place：Lecture Room L1 (3F, IMI, Kyushu University)  Speaker：Kastuki Fujisawa (Chuo University & JST CREST)   Title：Development and future direction of mathematical software packages  highperformance technology, industrial‐academic cooperation and educational program    Abstract: From the 1990s, we have performed many research projects in various areas such as optimization, operations research, computer science, architecture, control, and highperformance computing; therefore we have developed many types of mathematical software packages for researchers of each area, industrialacademic 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 highperformance computing. A mathematical software package itself must be a highperformance solver for solving mathematical problems quickly and accurately. A highperformance 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.
