    The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) was originally launched as a computing center for the exclusive support of magnetic confinement fusion research in the US. There is, thus, a long history of computational advances and successes that ties fusion scientists with NERSC and its staff. One example of the numerous computational achievements enabled by NERSC in this field i... View full abstract»

    The cosmic microwave background (CMB) consists of photons created in the Big Bang and cooled by the subsequent expansion of the universe to an almost perfectly uniform 3-Kelvin sky signal today. These photons experience the entire history of the universe, and each epoch has left its imprint as tiny fluctuations in their temperature and polarization. Decoding these provides unique insight into the ... View full abstract»

    A Matlab tool called GIDE allows user-aided deblurring of images. GIDE helps practitioners restore a blurred grayscale image using their knowledge or intuition about the true image. At the same time, it safeguards from possible bias by validating the choice using statistical diagnostics, based on an assumption of Gaussian added noise. GIDE also allows practitioners (or students) to visually explor... View full abstract»
