David P. Landau, Distinguished Research Professor of Physics and director of the Center for Simulational Physics, presented an invited talk at the international conference on the Grand Challenge to Next-Generation Integrated Nanoscience, held in Tokyo in June. This conference was sponsored by the $1 Billion Next Generation Supercomputer Project, being funded by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

Landau’s presentation, “Wang-Landau Sampling for ‘Biologically Inspired’ Nanophysics: The HP Model,” featured advances in understanding problems at the interface between statistical physics, biology and nanoscience. The research was carried out in collaboration with Thomas Wuest in the Center for Simulational Physics.
