FSU computational mathematician recognized among the world’s most influential researchers

An applied and computational mathematician in the Department of Scientific Computing at Florida State University has been named one of the world’s most influential researchers by a prominent global citation database.  Web of Science, a platform that includes nearly 1.9 billion cited references from more than 171 million records, noted Max Gunzburger, Robert O. Lawton Distinguished […]

FSU computational scientist demonstrates how supernovae detonate

The mystery of how supernovae fully form and function is one of many secrets of the universe that scientists have yet to unravel, but new work by a Florida State University research team has used theory and computations to show how one class of these luminous stellar explosions go from a slow burn to a brilliant detonation. Their […]

FSU researchers use mechanical engineering, scientific computing and forestry to better understand prescribed burns

In the effort to mitigate destructive wildfires, wildland managers often fight those uncontrolled fires with prescribed fire — carefully controlled burns to safely eliminate the vegetation that piles up on forest floors and adds to potential fuel. Prescribed fires are an important tool for managing fire-prone landscapes, but they come with a cost. Fire makes […]

FSU computational biology researcher named AAAS Fellow

A Florida State University computational biology researcher has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a lifetime distinction that honors contributions to science and technology. The AAAS named Peter Beerli, a professor of scientific computing, as one of 443 new fellows of the association. The new fellows represent scientists […]
