AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS (AIM)
The American Institute of Mathematics, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 1994 by Silicon Valley businessmen John Fry and Steve Sorenson, longtime supporters of mathematical research. The goals of AIM are to expand the frontiers of mathematical knowledge through focused research projects, sponsored conferences, and the development of an on-line mathematics library.
In addition, AIM is interested in helping to preserve the history of mathematics through the acquisition and preservation of rare mathematical books and documents and in making these materials available to scholars of mathematical history.
AIM currently resides in temporary facilities in Palo Alto, California. These facilities are the former headquarters of Fry’s Electronics and have been generously donated by Fry’s. A new facility is being constructed in Morgan Hill, California, approximately 45 miles south of the current location.
Charities such as The First Tee of Silicon Valley, Northern California Golf Association Foundation, Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, and Special Olympics of Northern California, will also benefit from the Frys.com Open. The tournament strives to make an impact in the community through charitable donations and has raised more than $6 million for charity in the past eight years.
