URI Speeds up Physics Research With SGI Technology

Abstract:
What if, before designing a car, an engineer could use physical knowledge of atomic
particles to design materials and know exactly how they would react in a collision? What if fundamental physical equations that predict how those particles will behave in various energy states (cold, heat, stress) could be used to design spacecraft? To solve the physics equations that will lead to the engineering designs of tomorrow, physicists at the University of Rhode Island are investigating the fundamental quantum mechanics of particles using technology from SGI (Nasdaq: SGIC)
