Computational Science and
Engineering (CS&E) is one of the major research areas in the Department of
Computer Science. The research focus is on the development of scalable
algorithms and software for very large applications and for massively parallel
computers. In particular, we work in the
following areas:

o
global
optimization methods with applications in protein folding problems

o
numerical methods
for partial differential equations

o
domain
decomposition methods

o
constrained and unconstrained optimization algorithms

o
high performance
algorithms and software in numerical linear algebra

o
high order
methods for climate modeling

o
information
retrieval
