Level Set Methods
The level set method is a method for tracking moving interfaces. In this method, the interface is tracked as an isosurface of a “level set function” of one higher dimension. The evolution of the interface is then translated into an evolution equation for the level set function.
Bacterial biofilms are the most ubiquitous form of life on the planet. They are a source of human disease and yet can be employed to remove harmful elements from wastewater. Understanding the growth, development, and control of biofilms is key.
Digital simulations of neurons reconstructed from brain tissue is one way to perform virtual experiments. As the number of neurons increases, the cost also increases. We’re interested in accelerating simulations through novel algorithms.
Computational materials science is a critical part of the development of novel designer materials that will drive the next generation of devices and products. Simulation of materials processes makes virtual experiments possible making development of new materials faster than ever.
