SUMMARY OF PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS
After a general welcome and introductions, the Chair of the Committee on Strengthening the Linkages Between the Sciences and the Mathematical Sciences, Thomas Budinger, explained that the purpose of the workshop was not so much to look at interesting problems in science and mathematics but to consider how successful collaborations between science and mathematics came about, what factors contributed to their success, and what factors inhibited them. He thanked the presenters for their contributions and opened the workshop presentations.
