The Laboratory for Computational Mathematics (LCM) of Centre for Mathematics of the University of Coimbra (CMUC) promotes research in computational mathematics and scientific computing, as techniques for the solution of challenging quantitative problems arising in science, engineering, finance and management.
CMUC is a member of PT-MATHS-IN and its resulting partnership is promoted through LCM. The Portuguese Network of Mathematics for Industry and Innovation (PT-MATHS-IN) is focused on the transfer of mathematical knowledge and expertise to industrial partners. The Network’s goal is to both stimulate industry competitiveness and elevate research's best practices within the academic groups involved.
The activity of LCM includes interdisciplinary research, high performance computing & development of numerical software, collaboration with the industry and support for graduate education. LCM keeps strong connections with ECMI - European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry, Red Española de Matemática-Industria, Instituto Tecnológico de Matemática Industrial and the Associação Portuguesa de Matemática para a Indústria.
