Using mathematical concepts, Princeton researchers have developed a method of discovering new drugs for a range of diseases by calculating which physical properties of biological molecules may predict their effectiveness as medicines. The technique already has identified several potential new drugs that were shown to be effective for fighting...

Research topics include: surface waves, free oscillations, and body waves, seismic tomography, numerical simulations of 3-D wave propagation, and seismic hazard assessment. In collaboration with the late Princeton Geosciences faculty member Tony Dahlen he published the book, Theoretical Global Seismology.

Roberto Car, The Ralph W. Dornte *31 Professor in Chemistry co-developed "ab-initio molecular dynamics," a theory that has had an enormous impact on the creation of molecular simulations with useful applications in all the basic sciences. This approach, which also goes under the name of the Car-Parrinello method, represented a milestone in...

What does it take to understand a black hole, those amazing astronomical features at the center of every galaxy, including our Milky Way? A lot of complex computational science done on supercomputers by researchers like Professor Jim Stone at Princeton University. Dr. Stone is Chair of Princeton’s Astrophysics Department. He is also director of...

Scientists at Princeton University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have developed a rigorous new method for modeling the accretion disk that feeds the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The paper, published online in December in the journal Physical Review Letters,...
