does so by internationally benchmarking three fields: mathematics, immunology, and materials science and engineering. The results of these experiments are summarized in chapter 3. The committee held a workshop to obtain input from agencies, policy-makers, disciplinary societies, and others on the feasibility and utility of benchmarking; the workshop provided material for chapter 4, in which COSEPUP develops its findings, and chapter 5, where those findings are discussed. Conclusions are listed in chapter 6.
