Researchers use complex computational models to assess engine qualitiesApril 15, 2014

Scientists at Argonne, as part of the new Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative (VERIFI), are looking at a number of parameters in the internal combustion process. By gaining a better understanding of how these parameters interact, the Argonne researchers seek to create cleaner and more efficient engines.

Nuclear engineer Elia Merzari is to receive the American Nuclear Society’s (ANS) 2014 Landis Young Member Engineering Achievement Award. Merzari holds a joint appointment with the Nuclear Engineering and Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne.

A wrong molecular turn leads down the path to type 2 diabetesDecember 20, 2013

Computing resources at Argonne have helped researchers better grasp how proteins misfold to create the tissue-damaging structures that lead to type 2 diabetes.

MCS researcher presents tutorial on scientific visualization of flow field dataNovember 5, 2013

Flow visualization has long been an area of research, but the rapidly increasing size and complexity of flow field data have raised many new challenges.

To address these challenges, Tom Peterka, an assistant computer scientist in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division, and his colleagues from four universities, presented a half-day tutorial October 13 at IEEE VIS 2013 — the premier forum for advances in scientific and information visualization.

The tutorial, "State-of-the-Art Flow Field Analysis and Visualization,"' covered five topics:

Researchers win best paper and best poster awards at LDAV 2013 November 5, 2013

Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory, together with several university colleagues, received awards at the 2013 IEEE Symposium on Large-Scale Data Analysis and Visualization (LDAV) held in Atlanta, Georgia, October 13-14.

Exploring the dark universe at the speed of petaflopsSeptember 13, 2013

An astonishing 95% of our universe is made of up dark energy and dark matter. Understanding the physics of this sector is the foremost challenge in cosmology today. Sophisticated simulations of the evolution of the universe play a crucial role.
