The Applied Mathematics Division has done without the services of some of its key people during all or part of the past year. Some of these were on leave and are expected to return. Unfortunately, the death of Dr. Milton Abramowitz takes from the Bureau a most valuable member of the Division. In spite of this, the Division continues to provide excellent mathematical, computational, and statistical services to other agencies of the government and to other Bureau divisions. In addition, the Division is serving the scientific community of the nation with its preparation of the Mathematical Tables Handbook and its training program in numerical analysis. Further, the members of the Division are carrying out significant research programs in addition to their service duties. The activities of the various sections of the Division are described below.
