A team of four University of Michigan students won Second Place in the XSEDE12 Student Programming Contest, held on July 18 at the XSEDE12 Conference in Chicago. The four undergraduate students–Brian Leu, Albert Liu, Parth Sheth, and Zeyin Zhang–competed against twelve … Continue reading
The University of Michigan’s Transportation and Research Institute is embarking on the next step in a $22M motor-vehicle safety research project, by equipping vehicles with connected vehicle technologies—devices that enable vehicles to send and receive wireless messages that may someday … Continue reading
By Stephen Forrest, Vice President for Research I am often asked a seemingly simple question: “How did Silicon Valley become Silicon Valley?” You could ask the same question of the Route 128 corridor around Boston, the Research Triangle in North … Continue reading
Crunched out of data by computational methods – and soon to be rendered with visualization software on Flux – Derek Posselt’s climate and weather models reveal how changes in the earth’s global mean temperature can influence the weather where you live. Continue reading
When Barry Grant started his research in molecular biochemistry, he performed his single cell experiments the traditional way: with a microscope. Eventually, however, he became frustrated with techniques that could not provide the rich detail he sought. So he turned to computational simulation.
Professor of Physics and Astronomy Gus Evrard and his colleagues are using high-performance computing (HPC) in their work to generate galaxy catalogs covering most of the entire visible universe. Continue reading
Fuel combustion is a source for the pollution and noise-emission that negatively affect the world we live in. One researcher in Aerospace Engineering, Matthias Ihme is using computational modeling to help make life on the planet a little cleaner and a little quieter. Continue reading
UM’s Physics department is collecting massive amounts of data from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, in a search for an elusive particle. Shawn McKee explains how U-M’s participation in the ATLAS experiment creates high demands for data storage, computing, and network throughput. Continue reading
