Building on its capabilities in data-intensive science, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory has expanded its Computational Science Initiative (CSI). The programs within this initiative leverage computational science, computer science, and mathematics expertise and investments across multiple research areas at the Laboratory.
Brookhaven physicist Paul Sorensen describes discoveries made at the
Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider where conditions similar to what the
universe may have looked like in the first microseconds after its birth are
RHIC is in its prime, poised to address a host of compelling science questions that remain or have been raised by the important discoveries to date, the facility performance continues to improve dramatically and the user base remains energized. Read more...
