General Information

The Task

The task of the Math Libraries work package is based on the recommendations of the RTAG3 (report, 2 May 2002), to provide support to the LHC experiments CMS, ATLAS, LHCb and Alice with expertise on mathematical methods for computing in high energy physics.

Interested in contributing?

The MathLibs is an open software project. People from inside or outside CERN who would like to make contributions to the software (in terms of patches, modules, functionality, whatever... for minimization, numerical linear algebra, random generators, etc...) are invited to contact us.

For students

We welcome students and summer students who want to write their master thesis or doctorate in the domain of computing in high energy physics (also with the possibility of a stay at CERN, see here). Just write us an informal email by saying who you are and what you are interested in. Strong numerical and object-oriented programming skills will be important.
