A New Mathematics for Experimental Science

March 17, 2014

In the age of high-resolution detectors and international research collaborations, math has the potential to transform science and accelerate discovery. But this work will require state-of-the-art mathematics, carefully crafted in inventive new ways. That’s where the Department of Energy’s new Center for Applied Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA) comes in. Read More »

Simulations Shed Light on Pine Island Glacier’s Stability

February 28, 2014

The rapid retreat of Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier has perhaps reached a point of no return, say three international modeling teams who ran a number of simulations to model the glacier’s behavior. To do this work, they relied on three different ice-flow models including BISICLES, which was developed by a collaboration that included Berkeley Lab computational scientists. Read More »
