Members of the Scientific Computing faculty are key participants in one of the first Big Data Initiative grants awarded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant is part of President Obama’s initiative to improve the nation’s ability to extract knowledge and insights from large and complex collections of digital data and to accelerate the pace of discovery in science and engineering.The grant will enable FSU to augment the campus network infrastructure by building a private, dedicated campus research path called the NoleNet Express-Lane for use by professors whose research demands an extremely high levels of data transfers and computations.
Recent Scientific Computing Ph.D. graduate Dan Lu was selected for a research spotlight in Water Resources Research, an interdisciplinary journal for research in the social and natural sciences of water. Only a small percentage of articles submitted to this prestigious journal are selected for publication, and an even smaller proportion are chosen for the research spotlight. Lu’s article, “Analysis of regression confidence intervals and Bayesian credible intervals for uncertainty quantification,” will be disseminated to the entire geophysics community (domestic and international) through the AGU newsletter.
A DSC undergraduate student attended a two-week high energy density science summer school in Traverse City, Michigan. Ryan Learn was an attendee at the Foundations of High Energy Density Physics summer school at Northwestern Michigan College from August 6th through August 20th. The last time the course was offered in 2004, and Learn was glad for the opportunity to participate.
