#ResearchWithoutBorders: Collaborate on a computational physics project with Dr. Lester Ingber

0

Our #ResearchWithoutBorders initiative aims to document and showcase cross-border collaborations in science, tech, engineering and medicine. Dr. Lester Ingber, an Oregon-based acclaimed physicist with over 100 publications to his credit, tells us about his platform, which facilitates collaboration with other researchers online.

Dr. Ingber is the Principal Investigator of a National Science Foundation (NSF.gov)  Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) supercomputer-resource grant. XSEDE is a “single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise”. Collaboration is voluntary, and Dr. Ingber is currently working with two volunteers – one from the USA and one from Italy. Depending on the contribution, collaborators are rewarded through learning, producing new algorithms, acknowledgments, or co-authorship, personal references from Dr. Ingber, etc.

The current grant, “Quantum path-integral qPATHTREE and qPATHINT algorithms”, extended till Dec 2017, focusses on computational physics.
