  • Modeling adsorption-desorption processes in porous media

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):84 - 91
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (872 KB)

    The question of how to address the connectivity of the pore space (that is, its network structure) appears daunting. The difficulty arises largely from the complexity of real porous materials and the limited understanding of the physics associated with these complicated systems. Given this situation and the increasing importance of porous materials, we have undertaken a comprehensive study of adso... View full abstract»

  • Econophysics: can physicists contribute to the science of economics?

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):74 - 77
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (468 KB)

    How can computational physicists contribute to the search for solutions to the puzzles posed by modern economics that economists themselves cannot solve? An approach-not very commonly used in economics-is to begin empirically, with real data that you can analyze in some detail, but without prior models. In economics, a great deal of real data is available. If you, moreover, have at your disposal t... View full abstract»

  • Molecular dynamics simulation

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):70 - 71
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (292 KB)

    The article presents a discussion on molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. MD requires a description of the molecules and the forces that act between them; a well known example is the Lennard-Jones potential, in which spherical particles repel one another at close range but otherwise attract. The MD simulation itself amounts to numerically integrating the equations of motion for systems of between a... View full abstract»

    The World Wide Web is a natural medium for sharing the results of your work with others. However, I created functions in Mathematica, a technical computing language with extensive numerical, graphic and symbolic capabilities. These functions, until now, were available only to other Mathematica users. Compounding the problem was my target audience: a narrow selection of people around the world with... View full abstract»

    Driven by our increasingly mobile society's ever growing demand for communications, today's providers of wireless telecommunication services must ensure reliable radio coverage “everywhere”. Computer based techniques that reduce the need for expensive experimental measurements are invaluable tools for achieving this objective. Various computational algorithms based mainly on ray tracin... View full abstract»

  • The importance of computer simulations of granular flow

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):72 - 73
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (256 KB)

    The importance of the technological applications of granular media in silos or conveyer belts, in ball mills or under bulldozers, demands more efficient simulation techniques to reproduce entire industrial processes. Although several commercial programs for the simulation of granular material exist, their use is not nearly as common as in fluid or solid mechanics. This is mainly due to historical ...

    A new scalable modeling framework and scalable parallel simulations make it possible to analyze the detailed behaviour of large, multidomain multiprotocol Internet models. The article focuses on simulation research. It describes the software designs that let us construct and run appropriately large models. After several years of research, we have developed a scalable network modeling framework, a ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (276 KB)

    Simulating physically realistic, complex dust behaviors is useful in interactive graphics applications, such as those used for education, entertainment, or training. Training in virtual environments is a major topic for research and applications, and generating dust behaviors in real time significantly increases the realism of the simulated training environment. We introduce a method for simulatin... View full abstract»

    Current communication systems use complex multiplexing techniques to maximize total bandwidth for users. With more high bandwidth services becoming available, particularly on the Internet, even more sophisticated coding- and modulation techniques are needed. We have developed a system based on advanced signal processing to meet such needs. The time-frequency-division multiplexing scheme for high b... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (416 KB)

    Trends in many areas of computation are moving toward multifunctional applications in science and engineering. Developing multifunctional applications requires reusing existing applications. This has led many forward-looking independent software vendors (ISVs) to team up to produce joint products. The products that result provide users with more benefits but at the cost of requiring more capable c... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The computational and data-centric problems faced by scientists and engineers transcend disciplines. There is a need to share knowledge of algorithms, software, and architectures, and to transmit lessons-learned to a broad scientific audience. Computing in Science & Engineering (CiSE) is a cross-disciplinary, international publication that meets this need by presenting contributions of high interest and educational value from a variety of fields, including—but not limited to—physics, biology, chemistry, and astronomy. CiSE emphasizes innovative applications in advanced computing, simulation, and analytics, among other cutting-edge techniques. CiSE publishes peer-reviewed research articles, and also runs departments spanning news and analyses, topical reviews, tutorials, case studies, and more.
