Center for Simulational Physics director lectured in South Africa

David P. Landau, Distinguished Research Professor and director of UGA’s Center for Simulational Physics, presented an invited lecture July 12 at the XXVIII IUPAP International Conference on Computational Physics CCP2016 in Pretoria, South Africa.

His presentation, “Replica Exchange Wang-Landau Simulation of Lattice Protein Folding Funnels,” described his research, which is at the interface between statistical physics and biochemistry and was carried out in collaboration with UGA doctoral candidate Guangjie “Jerry” Shi and Thomas Wust of the ETH Zurich. Supported in part by the NSF, the research relied on computing resources provided by the NSF XSEDE facilities and by the GACRC at UGA.
