Cyber and Data Sciences

Cyber and data sciences include topics such as mathematical modeling and simulation, applied mathematics and statistical sciences, sensing and dynamic signal processing, machine learning and inference, cognitive communications and networking, wireless and cloud computing, multi-scale computational science, and data analytics.

Professor Paul DesJardin of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department and CCR user, employs computational fluid dynamics to develop a better understanding of the turbulent flow for improved predictions of fire intensity and growth.

Complexity Science

Complexity science includes research on fundamental questions such as the relation between underlying structure and emergent behavior, extreme values and large deviation theories, game theoretic decision making, etc.
