Tong awarded NSF grant

Yiying Tong received an NSF grant for the project "Collaborative Research: Geometric Time Integrators for Mechanical Dynamical Systems." The grant was awarded through the Dynamical Systems and Computational Mathematics Programs at the NSF Division of Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation. The project is in collaboration with Eva Kanso, University of Southern California, and Mathieu Desbrun, California Institute of Technology.

Time integrators are crucial computational tools for studying nonlinear dynamical systems. The project aims at developing an infrastructure for predictive and high-order accurate simulations of fluid-mechanical systems. The project will combine the power of modern applied geometry with modern computational mechanics.
