Group Focus

The LeVeque research group’s research interests span many areas, including numerical analysis, computational fluid dynamics, nonlinear partial differential equations, mathematical theory of conservation laws, and software development, including the CLAWPACK software for solving conservation laws and other hyperbolic systems modeling wave propagation. It is also involved in research in many applications areas, including astrophysics, geophysics, and biophysics.
