This award was established in May 1985 by Cray Research, Inc. and friends of Ray Grimm, a pioneer in computational plasma physics at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and a long time mentor and professor in the Program in Plasma Physics. It provides a $5000 prize for an advanced (post-generals) graduate student at Princeton University who has demonstrated significant achievement in computational physics (such as is done in a number of departments at Princeton). In the event that two nomi
Three Princeton University researchers have been granted a total of 345 million hours of processing time on two powerful supercomputers as part of the 2015 Innovative and Novel Computational Impact of Theory and Experiment (INCITE) awards from the U.S. Department of Energy.
When it comes to the Earth’s interior, researchers have only “scratched the surface.” Our idea of what the deep Earth looks like is largely inferred from surface observations; unfortunately, what goes on beneath our feet has serious catastrophic potential.
Princeton University has established the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning. John Storey, a professor of molecular biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, has been named the center's director.
Princeton senior Brian Lax is an English major, passionate about British literature. He is also passionate about computer science and is earning a certificate in statistics and machine learning. Determined to marry these two seemingly disparate parts of his academic experience for his senior thesis, he set out to track revisions of poems by W.H. Auden across time — using the computer as his chief research tool.
Three miles from the main campus, Princeton’s high-performance computers hum undisturbed, cranking out projections of what happens when a neutron star encounters a black hole — things don’t go well for the neutron star — working out how trees know when it is safe to put out their spring leaves, and designing drug candidates for treating inflammatory diseases.
he Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world.
