  1. Reducing Complex Physico-Chemical Model Systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A05T018

    An important and fundamental challenge in science and engineering is the need to understand the system output variables (model predictions, measured observables) and their relation to the system¡¦s input variables (model inputs, specified experimental conditions). This project proposes to address this problem through the development of a family of numerical tools for implementing High Dimension ...
