Impacts, or research highlights, are brief, accessible research descriptions geared toward a general audience.

They are a way of sharing the IMA’s achievements—and those of its visitors—with the community, building awareness and appreciation for applied mathematics. Sharing these outcomes with the community at large is a vital part of the IMA’s mission and gives visitors a glimpse into the cutting-edge research connected with and stemming from the IMA.

The IMA alumni website has also recorded the impact the IMA has had on the mathematical sciences community and the larger scientific and engineering communities through stories shared by IMA alumni.
