High-performance Computing with Undergraduates: From Classrooms to Conferences

  Abstract: In the last 20 years, computational physics has become a separate branch of study, right along with theoretical and experimental physics. As our computing resources have advanced, we now rely on massively parallel high-performance computing techniques to simulate and model physical systems. There are many interesting research topics in physics spanning a wide range of length and time scales that are accessible to undergraduate students through direct extension of concepts learned in their sequence of courses. Several such research problems will be discussed in context of their importance and effectiveness in equipping physics undergraduates for success in research environments and promoting interdepartmental collaboration.
