Leveraging over 9 million of dollars of investment in military simulation and training, Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) unveils a new robust training capability called the Crisis

Simulating Climate Change Using New Technique
2013-03-05 13:13:13

Statistical physics offers an approach to studying climate change that could dramatically reduce the time and brute-force computing that current simulation techniques require. The new approach focuses on fundamental forces that drive climate rather than on “following every little swirl” of water or air. And yes, there’s an app for that.
