Explosions Shed Light on his Research

Alan Calder

On a typical day at work, Professor Alan Calder sits in front of the computer in his office in the Earth and Space Sciences building at Stony Brook University and looks at multidimensional computerized models of type Ia supernovae, one class of bright stellar explosions. He uses computational astrophysics to simulate these explosions, but in simpler terms - he blows up stars. Read more ...

SBU Team Discovers New Compounds that Challenge the Foundation of Chemistry

Electron localization function in the cubic NaC13 structure

All good research breaks new ground, but rarely does the research unearth truths that challenge the foundation of a science. That’s what Artem R. Oganov has done, and the professor of theoretical crystallography in the Department of Geosciences will have his work published in the Dec. 20 issue of the journal Science. Read more ...

Three SBU students are chosen to present their work at SC13

Na Zhang

Three PhD SBU graduate students were chosen to present their research at the SuperComputing 2013 (SC13) annual conference held this year in Denver, Colorado. Na Zhang, Chao Gao, and Yufei Ren were selected from among 36 applicants to give a talk and present a poster as part of the Doctoral Showcase Program. These students are from three different departments with three different advisors, but they all shared in the success of presenting their early stage work to a prestigious audience from all corners of the world.
