Research from the Kindt Group Featured in eScienceCommons

New research from the Kindt Group was recently featured in eScienceCommons. The Kindt Group, in collaboration with students in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department, has developed a new method to calculate equilibrium constants using small-scale simulations. The software, which reduces computing time using tricks derived from number theory, has been named PEACH for “partition-enabled …
