National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science

The National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (Dutch: "Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica" or "CWI") is one of the leading European research centers in the field of mathematics and theoretical computer science. It is located at the Science Park Amsterdam in the Netherlands,

Overview

It was founded in 1946 by Johannes van der Corput, David van Dantzig, Jurjen Koksma, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Marcel Minnaert and Jan Arnoldus Schouten. Originally called "Mathematical Centre", in Dutch: "Mathematisch Centrum"), its name was changed in 1983 to reflect the strong Computer Science component in its research.

It is a member of European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM).
