About Us

Tarleton State University’s Mathematics department has always had a large percentage of applied faculty members.  Because the university is regional and serves mainly undergraduate students, it did not have the budget to house its own High-Performance Computing (HPC) lab. This greatly limited the research done by the mathematics department. In 2007 with the release of CUDA, NVIDIA all but eliminated this financial barrier.  Hence, Dr. Bryant Wyatt created Tarleton’s HPC lab with a grant from NVIDIA in 2011. The lab soon became a hub for computational mathematics research and collaborations across campus. The Lab has produced groundbreaking results in Late Lunar forming Impacts and software that is being used in 2021 redistricting. This page gives an overview of the computational mathematics work done in our department. Please click through the pages and contact the lead researcher for more information on their work.
