Theory Center reorganized (802 words)
The 22-year-old Cornell Theory Center has been reorganized and renamed in a move designed to make its high-performance computing resources more efficient and effective for the university's researchers and to take advantage of growing opportunities for research funding.
Positioning Cornell to take advantage of such funding was one of the recent recommendations of an ad hoc cyberinfrastructure task force chaired by Tony Ingraffea, the Dwight C. Baum Professor of Engineering, who has served as interim director of the Theory Center for the past two years.
The Theory Center was established in 1985 under the direction of Nobel laureate and supercomputing visionary Kenneth Wilson, former Cornell professor of physics, as one of four NSF-funded national supercomputing centers intended to make high-performance computing -- then available only to industry and government -- accessible to academic researchers.
