Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS) in the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), founded in December 1998, is integrated with Institute of Mathematics (established in 1952), Institute of Applied Mathematics (established in 1979), Institute of Systems Science (established in 1979) and Institute of Computational Mathematics and Science/Engineering Computing (established in 1995). CAS Academician Professor YANG Lo was its founding president, CAS Academician Prof.GUO Lei was the second president,and Prof.WANG Yuefei and XI Nanhua,CAS Academician, are the current co-presidents.
AMSS is a national comprehensive academic research center of mathematics and systems science. The strategic objectives of AMSS are to make important, original and pivotal research results, and to bring up academic leads and talents in the field of mathematics and systems science, gearing the research to the international scientific frontiers and the national strategic demands. The target of AMSS is to make a great influential research center in the world, a famous training center for advanced researchers, and an important researching and consulting center for national economy and the construction of national defense issues in the field of Mathematics and Systems Science.
Besides the four institutes, AMSS also houses key laboratories, including the National Center for Mathematics and Interdisciplinary Sciences, the State Key Laboratory of Scientific and Engineering Computing, the Key Laboratory of Management, Decision and Information Systems, the Key Laboratory of Systems and Control, the Key Laboratory of Mathematics Mechanization, the HUA Loo-Keng Key Laboratory of Mathematics, the Key Lab of Random Complex Structures and Data Science, the Morningside Center of Mathematics and Center for Forecasting Science.
AMSS has more than 370 staff members, including more than 249 researchers. Among them, 17 are CAS Academicians, two are Academicians of CAE (Chinese Academy of Engineering) and 6 Fellows of the Third World Academy of Sciences. The AMSS is authorized to confer advanced degrees in five primary academic disciplines and thirteen secondary disciplines. Currently, it has more than 400 graduate students and about 50 post-doctoral fellows.
In the past years, the scientific personnel of the four institutes have made important contributions to the country's development of chinese mathematics and systems science as well as contributions to national economy and national defense. They have won more than 600 scientific awards, including one National Top Science and Technology Prize (Wentsun Wu), 4 first National Natural Science Award, i.e. The theory of functions of several complex variables over classical domains by Hua Loo-Keng, Studies on characteristic classes and embedding classes by Wentsun Wu, Studies on the Goldbach conjecture by Chen Jingrun and Wang Yuan, etc., Symplectic geometric algorithm of Hamiltonian systems by Feng Kang, etc., and a number of important international awards. For some of its important research achievements in applied science, AMSS has been acknowledged by the central government leaders and relevant departments of application. This has proved the important role of mathematics in the national economy and defense.
AMSS has established exchange and cooperation relationship with many academic institutions abroad, and received more than 300 visitors both home and abroad each year. AMSS has a library with abundant collection in mathematics and systems science, up to more than 200,000 books, and an advanced system of computers and network.
The Chinese Mathematics Society, the Operations Research Society of China, and the Systems Engineering Society of China, etc. set up their offices in AMSS. AMSS sponsors 14 academic journals
