At the time of the establishment of the Bureau of Standards Technical Advisory Committee for Mathematics a discussion of the role appropriate to the Mathematics Division (Division 11) of the Bureau was undertaken by the Committee.

Therefore the Technical Advisory Committee recommended the establishment of a new section. There are now four sections: Numerical Analysis (11.01), the Computation Laboratory (11.02), the Statistical Engineering Laboratory (11.03), and Mathematical Physics (11.04).
