Dr William (Bill) Reynolds PhD – contributing author
WILLIAM N. REYNOLDS, Ph.D. is the founder, President and Chief Science Officer of Least Squares Software and has been a principal researcher and innovator in the field of complexity and computation for more than twenty years. Dr. Reynolds has extensive experience in numerical simulation of complex systems, such as complex aggregation of cells, financial market and battlefield dynamics. Over the past decade, he has focused on the role of complex systems in operational analysis. Recent project have included developing quantitative methodologies based on traditional social science methodologies for the analysis of massive social media corpora and the valuation of information in complex automated reasoning problems. Dr. Reynolds holds a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of California at San Diego, and Bachelor’s Degrees in Physics and Comparative Literature from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Professor Bertil Schmidt PhD – contributing author
PROFESSOR BERTIL SCHMIDT is tenured Full Professor and Chair for Parallel and Distributed Architectures at the University of Mainz, Germany. Prior to that he was a faculty member at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and at University of New South Wales (UNSW). His research group has designed a variety of algorithms and tools for Bioinformatics mainly focusing on the analysis of large-scale datasets. For his research work, he has received a CUDA Research Centre award, a CUDA Academic Partnership award, a CUDA Professor Partnership award and the Best Paper Award at IEEE ASAP 2009. Furthermore, he serves as the champion for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology on gpucomputing.net.
Andrey Vladimirov, Ph. D., is Head of HPC Research at Colfax International. His primary interest is the application of modern computing technologies to computationally demanding scientific problems. Prior to joining Colfax, A. Vladimirov was involved in computational astrophysics research at Stanford University, North Carolina State University, and the Ioffe Institute (Russia), where he studied cosmic rays, collisionless plasmas and the interstellar medium using computer simulations. He is the lead author of the book Parallel Programming and Optimization with Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors, a regular contributor to the online resource Colfax Research, and an author or co-author of over 10 peer-reviewed publications in the fields of theoretical astrophysics and scientific computing.
Dr Peter Vincent
Peter is a Senior Lecturer and EPSRC Early Career Fellow working in the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. Peter holds a 1st Class MSci degree in Physics from Imperial College (top of the year), and a PhD in computational fluid dynamics from the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. Peter has also studied in the US, serving for two years as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University. Peter’s current research focuses on the development of novel numerical methods and their application to solve challenging fluid flow problems in various areas of science, engineering, and medicine. He is particularly interested in theoretical aspects of high-order numerical methods for unstructured grids, as well as their implementation for a range of modern hardware platforms.
