Robert Saye, 2013 Luis W. Alvarez Fellow

September 22, 2013

As the 2013 Luis Alvarez Fellow in Computing Sciences, Robert Saye will be developing numerical methods and computational tools for studying a wide range of problems involving multiple evolving interfaces. These problems include modeling how grains develop in metallic and ceramic materials, studying the fluid dynamics of multi-cellular structures in complex geometries, and modeling the multi-scale dynamics of liquid foams. His methods will also have applications in multi-region shape optimization and image segmentation. Read More »

Special Feature: Reducing Energy Costs with Better Batteries

September 9, 2013

A better battery—one that is cheap and safe, but packs a lot of power—could lead to an electric vehicle that performs better than today’s gasoline-powered cars, and costs about the same or less to consumers. Read More »

NERSC Calculations Provide Independent Confirmation of Global Land Warming Since 1901

September 9, 2013

Scientists report that land surface air temperatures estimated using a number of historical observations largely match the existing temperature measurements spanning the years 1901 to 2010. Read More »
