Computational Science & Engineering Research Institute
The CSERI was created
in 2002 as a home
on computational problems
of common interest,
to facilitate the development
of long range research programs,
to support the CS&E Ph.D. program ,
and to provide access to medium- and large-scale
would not otherwise be available.
of Computation Science & Engineering is the application
of computational technologies (computer hardware,
to current problems
these problem are
of national interest,
of economic interest
of state-wide economic interest.
The creation of the CS&ERI was approved by:
- Curt Tompkins, President
- Kent Wray, Provost and Sr. Vice President
- David Reed, Vice President for Research
- Bruce Rafert, Dean of the Graduate School and Distance Learning
- Maximilian Seel, Dean of the College and Sciences and Arts
- Robert Warrington, Dean of the College of Engineering
- Linda Ott, Chair of the Department of Computer Science
- Alphonse Baartmans, Chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences
- Ravindra Pandey, Chair of the Department of Physics
- Theodore Bornhorst, Chair of the Department of Geological and Mining
Engineering and Sciences
- Michael Mullins, Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering
- William Predebon, Chair of Mechanical Engineering - Engineering
- Timothy Schulz, Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering
- Steven Seidel, Associate Professor of Computer Science
- Phillip Merkey, Research Assistant Professor of Computer
A complete description of the CS&E Research Institute can be found in the CSERI proposal.
Phillip Merkey is the director of the CS&E Research Institute.
Cray T3E: This supercomputer contains 60 processors. This machine originally cost about $1.5M. It is a few years old now, but current models of this supercomputer maintain their place as the fastest machines in the world.
