The objectives of the Group are to:
(a) contribute to, and participate in, the national discussion of the mathematics underlying numerical techniques and optimisation;
(b) promote the application of computational techniques based on mathematical analysis in industry, agriculture and society in general, in particular displaying mathematics as a driver of technological innovation;
(c) discuss the significance of mathematics of computation and optimisation in a national (secondary and tertiary) curriculum in the STEM areas;
(d) foster inquiry and discussion of the role of mathematics in computational science and
engineering in industry and society in general; and
(e) provide opportunities for mathematical numerical analysts and optimisers to network, share experiences and discuss current practices and research in the mathematics of computation and optimisation.
