Scientific Computing

Numerical analysis and scientific computing have a long history in our department, dating from the 1970s. Our research today includes work on numerical linear algebra, ill-posed problems, fast summation methods, and the use of such ideas in diverse applications such as imaging, fluid dynamics and acoustics. The group has always had close ties with numerical analysts in the Mathematics Department, and our students are drawn from the Department of Computer Science as well as the Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computing Program.
