Stony Brook Researchers Receive Two-Year INCITE Award of 50 Million Supercomputing Hours for Modeling Astrophysical Explosions

INCITE group

A team of Stony Brook University researchers has been awarded 50 million hours on the Titan Cray XK7 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, to advance their research on modeling of astrophysical explosions. The two-year project, titled, “Approaching Exascale Models of Astrophysical Explosions,” led by Astronomy Professor Michael Zingale in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, stems from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment award (INCITE), which provides the supercomputing hours.

Stony Brook Scientists Disprove Theory That Reconstructed Boron Surface is Metallic

Scientific inquiry is a hit and miss proposition, subject to constant checking and rechecking. Recently, a new class of materials was discovered called topological insulators—nonmetallic materials with a metallic surface capable of conducting electrons. The effect, based on relativity theory, exists only in special materials—those with heavy elements—and has the potential to revolutionize electronics. Read more ...

Biomedical Informatics Receives $3.2 Million from NCI to Study Tumor Makeup

Joel Saltz

Stony Brook Medicine’s Department of Biomedical Informatics has received a five-year $3.2 million grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to develop a suite of informatics tools that will enable basic researchers to study tumors, including their structures, genetics, and protein expression patterns. The project will involve massive biomedical quantitative analyses of tumors to better understand how and why they grow. Read more ...

Perozzi and Jacobs win IACS Junior Researcher Fellowships

Bryan Perozzi

While studying mathematical models of related objects may not seem relevant to most people, this area of research has many everyday, applications: filling in missing data for social network users and electronic healthcare records; detecting online fraud; discovering attributes of proteins from their interactions; and the list goes on. Graph mining, as it is called, is the subject studied by IACS student Bryan Perozzi, one of this year’s winners of the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) 2014 Junior Researcher Fellowship.
