A Parallel Solver for 3D FullStokes Ice Sheet Modeling: Simulation results of the temperature evolution of a Greenland ice sheet after 10 years (Ju et al.). A Parallel Solver for 3D FullStokes Ice Sheet Modeling: Zoomin of a region close to the ice sheet edge (Ju et al.). Time evolution of “trident”shaped branched
tube formation via fusion of uniluminal vascular
spheroids in a KMC simulation. Top: the
crosssectional views. Red: smooth muscle
cells; Green: endothelial cells; Blue: lumen
particles (see enlargement). Bottom: the external
views. (Y. Sun, X. Yang and Q. Wang) Computational Analysis of Biofabrication Morphogenesis of a Branching Vascular Construct: Vascular construct made of a layerbylayer deposition in a designed Yshape pattern (Q. Wang et al.). Fifth Roots: Take a random walk in the complex plane starting from 0, each step an equiprobable fifth root of unity. Ten steps later, there's a circle centered at your destination whose area is proportional to your probability of being there. Other than two minor modifications (taking the fifth power of all points and inflating the atom at zero), this is the distribution of complex homogeneous eigenvalues of the allones 10X10X10X10X10X10 hypermatrix. (Joshua Cooper with Aaron Dutle.) Monochromatic Boxes in Color Grids: What is the size of the smallest box (left) so that, if the elements are colored with two colors, there must be a nontrivial "subgrid" (right) all in one color? (See Cooper et al.) Adaptivity and Variational Stabilization for ConvectionDiffusion Equations: Every fourth adaptive cycle of Algorithm 1 with modification at the outflow boundary starting from cycle 3 for the test problem (3.25) with $\epsilon = 5 \cdot 10^{3}$. The first row depicts the finite element solution $u _ h$. The second row displays the corresponding grids of $u _ h$. (See Cohen et al.) Adaptive PetrovGalerkin Methods for First Order Transport Equations: The 18th iterate of the adaptive solver and corresponding grid of model problem (6.1) with Algorithm 5.3 with $X _ h = P _ {1,T _ h}, Z _ h = P _ {3,T _ {h/8}}$ and $K = 9$ (See Dahmen et al.).
Project Highlights
 Digitizing Optical Sound TracksThe University of South Carolina Moving Image Research Collections (MIRC) is collaborating with research faculty from the University’s Interdisciplinary Mathematics Institute (IMI) to develop an opensource software application to directly reproduce the optical sound tracks of motion picture films from digital scans producing, as a result, a synchronized sound film file. For more information and to download the opensource software, please visit the project's website.

Special Announcements
 "Reel Life" with Greg WilsbacherGreg Wilsbacher (University Libraries), leadPI on a project with Pencho Petrushev (IMI), was featured in a video interview for @UofSC, where he discusses the University of South Carolina Moving Image Research Collections  considered one of the top 10 archives of its type in the nation  and specifically, the Fox Movietone News collection, which he curates. Wilsbacher is working with a team from IMI to develop an opensource software application to directly reproduce the optical sound tracks of motion picture films from digital scans producing, as a result, a synchronized sound film file. 
 USC Research CyberInfrastructure ProgramQi Wang was appointed by the Provost as the Chair of the Faculty Advisory Committee for the 20142015 USC Research CyberInfrastrucure Program. The RCI Program, directed by Phil Moore, is charged with providing High Performance Computing to the university. The Faculty Advisory Committee members serve as points of contact for the RCI program. Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact any Faculty Advisory Committee member for help with questions about where to turn for access to USC's research computing resources. They may also contact the RCI team directly by email: rci@sc.edu
