A Guide to the UT Center for Numerical Analysis Records, 1970-1998
Started in 1970 by David Young, the Center for Numerical Analysis (CNA) focuses on theoretical foundations of computational mathematics to applications in science and engineering. CNA’s mission is, “to promote research and development in numerical analysis and to aid in related educational activities.”
Today, the CNA is a research center under the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES). Examples of current research in the mathematics of numerical algorithms are the development and analysis of fast multipole methods for wave propagation, multiscale algorithms for stiff dynamical systems, approximation properties of Gaussian beams and efficient methods for Hamilton-Jacobi equations. Examples of applications are kinetic models for plasmas and nanodevices, visibility algorithms with applications in homeland security, image processing, electromagnetic scattering, oil reservoir modeling and seismic imaging.
