Abstract:

The primary objectives for establishing the CSSV-Lab was to provide a laboratory setting for doing state-of-the-art research training in computational science and scientific visualization. Students and faculty from mathematics, computer science, physics, biology, chemistry, geology, and technology meet bi-weekly in a seminar setting in the CSSV-Lab to share, discuss and critique each others work. Moreover, several students work in the CSSV-Lab directly under a faculty mentor or mentors in their own discipline on a computational science-oriented research project with visualization components. Faculty associated with the seminar have been requested to consider research projects which they believe will be exciting and motivating projects for students as well as appropriate for the computing platforms in the CSSV-Lab. The bi-weekly seminar has the potential of becoming one of the most exciting vehicles in the University for getting a significant number of mathematics and science students involved in undergraduate research and motivating them to pursue graduate study in their discipline area. This is particularly significant since most of our students are African Americans. Moreover, this project can serve as a model for doing undergraduate research and research training in computational science and computer visualization at other colleges and universities. Under this grant, several state-of-the-arts SGI unix-based graphical workstations were purchased for the CSSV-Lab along with associated software pheriphals.
