Research Summary

Edmond Chow's research interests are in developing and applying numerical and discrete algorithms to solve large-scale scientific computing problems. Specific algorithms of interest include those of numerical linear algebra, such as preconditioning and multilevel methods for solving sparse linear systems; as well as those of particle-based simulation, for example molecular dynamics techniques for biological molecules. Chow is particularly interested in the design of these algorithms for new and emerging computer architectures, particularly distributed memory parallel machines, and modern forms of data-parallel (SIMD) computing. He also has interests in data-intensive computing, particularly algorithms and machine architectures for analyzing unstructured data such as massive graphs and complex networks.
