Brief information
Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of Russian Academy of Sciences (abbreviation: KIAM RAS) was founded in 1953 to solve complex mathematical problems involved in national projects of space exploration, atomic and thermonuclear energy application, etc. This goal was meant to be achieved by developing and using appropriate computer hardware and software facilities. The Institute founder and first director (1953-1978) was President of the USSR Academy of Sciences Mstislav Keldysh.
Since its first years the Institute activity oriented to solving large scale applied problems is based on the results of fundamental scientific research in mathematics, mechanics, cybernetics, informatics, etc.
