Computational Science

A world leader in computational science, engineering and mathematics, The University of Texas at Austin cultivates interdisciplinary research to solve critical problems of significance to society. Researchers are advancing science and society, by building the mathematical and statistical foundations for advanced computing methods, developing new scalable algorithms, and advancing the architecture-algorithm-application nexus.



Featured Research


Acoustics scattering calculations allow the determination of the acoustics pressure on the ear drum, corresponding to different locations of sound and multiple frequencies. These acoustics transfer functions prove useful for designing and tuning hearing aid devices for hearing impaired individuals. The tuning is especially challening in the case of young children with whom a trial and error approach is not possible.

Computational Visualization Center
