Computational Physics Student Summer Workshop at LANL – Submission Deadline January 28, 2013

January 28, 2013 @ 12:00 am

The 2013 Comptutational Physics Student Summer Workshop at Los Alamos National Laboratory will be heldĀ June 10 – August 16 The deadline for submission is January 28, 2013 Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Computational Physics Division, in cooperation with other related divisions including Theoretical Design and Computer, Computational and Statistical Sciences, is pleased to sponsor the annual Computational Physics Student Summer Workshop. The workshop seeks to bring to Los Alamos National Laboratory a diverse group of exceptional undergraduate and graduate students for informative, enriching lectures and to work with its staff for 10 weeks on interesting, relevant projects that may culminate in articles or conference presentations. Students are organized into groups of 2-3 working under the guidance of one or more mentors. Each participant is awarded a fellowship that typically ranges from $7,500 to $13,000, based on academic rank (junior, senior, 1st year graduate student, etc.). Important: Only US citizens are admitted to this workshop. You must state your citizenship to be considered. This year’s topics include:

  • State-of-the-art MCNP6 Monte-Carlo criticality calculations
  • Algorithms for shock hydrodynamics
  • Calculating cross-sections for X-ray Thomson scattering in warm dense matter
  • GPU algorithms for mesh-based mechanics codes
  • Verification of a rad-hydrocode using analytical solutions
  • Turbulence modeling
  • 3-T plasma physics in a rad-hydrocode
  • Material interfaces in rad-hydro simulations
  • Diffusion in mixtures
  • Energy minimization for nuclear fission using large matrices
