The Center for Computational Mathematics (CCoM) consists of a broad and diverse
group of faculty, researchers, and students, who share a common interest in the
mathematical aspects of computation. Research interests that are represented in the
group include the theoretical analysis and development of numerical algorithms, and
modeling and simulation of complex physical, biological, and engineering systems.
A unique aspect of the CCoM group is the concurrent emphasis on mathematics,
computation, and applications. This is achieved through a combination of rigorous
mathematical analysis, and practical numerical implementation, while being motivated
and informed by nontrivial real world applications.
The CCoM Group plays a lead role in UCSD's recently launched campus-wide
interdisciplinary doctoral and masters programs in
Computational Science, Mathematics, and Engineering (CSME).
The CSME graduate program combines the three Physical Sciences
departments (Mathematics, Chemistry & Biochemistry, and Physics)
with three core engineering departments
(Computer Science & Engineering, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering,
and Structural Engineering)
to form a unique graduate training program that provides a combination
of training in domain expertise with state-of-the-art mathematical and
software tools for modern computational science.
