ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

IAEA projects increase in nuclear’s growth for second year in a row
The International Atomic Energy Agency, for the second successive year, has revised upward its annual projections of nuclear power’s potential growth over the coming decades as an electricity provider.
In the just-released 42nd edition of Energy, Electricity and Nuclear Power Estimates for the Period up to 2050, the IAEA has increased its high-case scenario for nuclear by 10 percent over last year’s report. (In 2021, the agency revised upward its annual projections for the first time since the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi accident.)
According to the high-case scenario, world nuclear generating capacity more than doubles to 873 GWe by 2050, compared with current levels of about 390 GWe—an addition of 81 GWe to last year’s projection. In the low-case scenario, generating capacity remains essentially flat.

The Alvin M. Weinberg Medal recognizes an individual for outstanding international technical and policy leadership in nuclear science and technology, and for consistently and effectively illuminating the human dimensions of the nuclear enterprise. The awardee must have demonstrated such achievements over a sustained period of several years.
The award consists of an engraved medal and a monetary award of $2,000. It is to be made no more frequently than once per year and is conferred normally during the ANS Winter Meeting.
Nominees may be from any nation, but they must not be deceased at the time the awardee is selected. Nominees need not be an ANS member.
The award was established in 1995 to honor Dr. Alvin M. Weinberg, one of the founders of the American Nuclear Society, and the 5th president of the Society, to provide international recognition for contributions to the understanding of the social implications of nuclear technology. It was funded in part by a $20,000 contribution from the Vietnamese-American Scholarship Fund and PAI Corporation on the occasion of Dr. Weinberg’s 80th birthday.
