Computational Physics

Computational Science has become a major inter-disciplinary focus at USC. Members of the Computational Physics group are currently working on large-scale simulations of quantum spin liquids, atomic spectra, time-dependent atomic processes in intense fields and multi-scale hybrid simulations of materials. Special emphasis is given to algorithm design and high performance programming environments for massively parallel machines and immersive and interactive three-dimensional scientific visualization. Members of the group include Professors Gene Bickers, Tu-nan Chang, Stephan Haas, Rajiv Kalia, Aiichiro Nakano, Robin Shakeshaft, Priya Vashishta.
