Certain primordial stars—those 55,000 and 56,000 times the mass of our Sun, or solar masses—may have died unusually. In death, these objects—among the Universe’s first-generation of stars—would have exploded as supernovae and burned completely, leaving no remnant black hole behind.
Using tailor-made software running on top-tier supercomputers, Berkeley Lab's Applied Numerical Algorithms Group is creating microscopic pore-scale simulations could help scientists evaluate ways to store carbon dioxide produced by power plants, keeping it from contributing to global climate change.
Adapting Materials Sciences Algorithms for Cancer Screening Leads to Award for Berkeley Lab ResearcherSeptember 15, 2014
An automated method to extract the boundaries of individual cytoplasm and nucleus from overlapping cervical cell images, developed by Berkeley Lab's Daniela Ushizima and Brazilian collaborators, won first place at an IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2014) competition. The tool included pattern recognition algorithms developed by DOE's CAMERA to characterize new materials.
