Research Landscape

Ohio’s strengths in basic and applied research are broad and deep, spanning a multitude of academic, business and industrial organizations. The spectrum of clients served by the Ohio Supercomputer Center likewise encompasses many fields of study. This diversity attracts to Ohio eminent scholars and innovative entrepreneurs, as well as a breadth of regional, national and global research funding. A review of several of these projects reveals a physicist who leverages supercolliders and supercomputers to unlock mysteries surrounding the birth of the universe. Other researchers are speeding up the world's fastest supercomputers even more by changing the way applications are developed and instructions are communicated. And, a political scientist has employed sophisticated statistical techniques to analyze the likelihood of armed conflict. The Center strives to assist customers with basic needs, while simultaneously meeting the requirements of its most advanced customers, as evidenced by the significant projects described on the following pages.
