The Group for Analysis, Imaging and Numerics (GAIN) is a multidisciplinary research group in the Mathematics department working in conjunction with the Institute for Scientific Computation. The purpose of the group is to bring together faculty and students in order to perform fundamental research as well as produce innovative computational tools. The lab provides graduate students an opportunity to work with well-respected researchers as well as to gain experience in development of research methods and software. Research interests of the group include approximation theory, numerical analysis, partial differential equations, and scientific computing.

News and Events

  • January 23, 2019: Dr. DeVore is organizing a mini-symposium, "Challenges in Computational Mathematics", with guest lecturers Albert Cohen, Wolfgang Dahmen and Eitan Tadmor.
  • Spring 2018: Distinguished Professor Ronald DeVore and his Co-PI’s, Professor Andrea Bonito, and Professor Guergana Petrova of the Department of Mathematics and the Institute for Scientific Computation received a $170,000 grant from the Defense University Research Instrument Program (DURIP) for the purchase of a computer cluster consisting of 20 nodes with 640 cores. The proposed work involves the development and testing of new mathematical algorithms based on sparsity and model reduction. These developments will provide fast, accurate solutions for high dimensional big data in areas such as climate change, flow of containments, genomics, and even social media, and finance. The new nodes will be installed in the Brazos Cluster, a condominium cluster operated by the Academy for Advanced Telecommunications and Learning Technologies in the College of Science.
