Simulation Research Lab

The Simulation Research Lab is used to create computer-based simulations of complex real-world phenomena such as the propagation of electrical activity in a beating human heart. Simulations allow scientists and engineers from many different fields to validate theories or perform virtual experiments too costly or dangerous for the real world. Producing such simulations involves quickly solving extremely large sets of challenging differential equations. Designing and optimizing numerical methods for computers to solve these equations accurately and efficiently is the mission of the Simulation Research Lab.
