Dr. Kuhn's undergraduate researchers consist of both math and computer science majors. Some of these students have been co-authors on peer-reviewed papers. Some have presented their work at regional or international conferences. After graduation these students have gone on to pursue
doctoral degrees, work for the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), or start industry jobs. Contact Dr. Kuhn for more info on her ongoing projects.
Development of Fast Stiff ODE Solvers
Goal: Analyzing Matlab's software performance interfaced with high level languages for expediting stiff ODE solvers.
Simulation and Modeling of Smart Material Multiple Component Structures
Goal: Developing a modified finite element basis which meets the smoothness requirements for realistic control actuation while simultaneous satisfying the boundary conditions associated with some recently developed MCS models.
