06/21/2016 - The Solid Modeling Association (SMA) has awarded Chandrajit Bajaj the honorific title of Solid Modeling Pioneer at the SPM'2016 symposium in Berlin. Read more
06/17/2016 - College of Natural Sciences | Point of Discovery As the summer movie season kicks into high gear, we talk with a scientist about some of the challenges in simulating the way everyday objects behave on the big screen through computer generated imagery (CGI). Etienne Vouga's computer simulations have helped bring to life a wizard's hair in The Hobbit and clothing in Tangled. Read more
05/16/2016 - Original article by College of Natural Sciences With an advance that one cryptography expert called a "masterpiece," University of Texas at Austin computer scientists have developed a new method for producing truly random numbers, a breakthrough that could be used to encrypt data, make electronic voting more secure, conduct statistically significant polls and more accurately simulate complex systems such as Earth's climate.
