  2. Development of a Renormalization Group Approach to Multi-Scale Plasma Physics Computation

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF07T022

    Multiple scale simulations are among the most challenging calculations in scientific computation, yet this capability is critical to realizing a virtual prototyping capability for devices based on electromagnetic and plasma technology. One solution to multi-scale problems is the renormalization group (RNG), which offers a systematic means to investigate and couple the impact of mutiple scales tog ...

  3. Scalable Formal Methods for Distributed Systems

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF07T019

    When designing distributed systems, it is necessary to compare two or more designs of the models of the system. By developing formal methods theory to automate the process of checking for differences, multiple designs can be quickly compared to come up with the best design of the system. UIUC has done research on an algorithm called Circular coinduction to automatically discover bisimulation relat ...
