The 4th Graduate Student Research Xposition was held Tuesday, April 14, 2009. Previous Xpositions were held bi-annually, but with the acceleration of interdisciplinary computational research and the maturation of the DSC graduate programs, the event has been recast as an annual occurrence.

The work presented at this Xposition was a culmination of the diligence and ingenuity of the DSC graduate students. This year, the students’ research was particularly well-developed and diverse, demonstrating advances in basic theory and experimental research with topics relevant to computational science. Some projects introduced new methods of studying long-time problems.

Among the presentations were projects which focused data storage, metal strength, stellar explosions or supernovae, overflow in oceans, classification and prediction markets, hydrologic modeling, and graphical user interface generation.
