The Applied Mathematics Department is comprised of three groups: the Center for Computational Sciences & Engineering, the Mathematics Group and the Scalable Solvers Group. The department develops advanced mathematical models and efficient computational algorithms for solving scientific and engineering problems of interest to the Department of Energy, including in particular those related to energy and environment. Sample scientific and engineering areas include accelerator physics, astrophysics, climate, combustion, cosmology, and multiphase flow. Many of the algorithms have scalable implementations that are targeted at current and next-generation massively parallel computer architectures, such as those available at NERSC. Some of the implementations are also available in the form of the user-callable software frameworks and libraries.
Department Head: David Brown (A)
The Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) develops and applies advanced computational methodologies to solve large-scale scientific and engineering problems arising in the Department of Energy (DOE) mission areas involving energy, environment, and industrial technology.
