Programs in the Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences
The Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences is made up of departments, programs and centers, which can be found here. There are also many interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives that are part of the division.
The Crocker Nuclear Lab houses a medium-energy particle accelerator, the Davis 76-inch isochronous cyclotron, with associated facilities and scientific and technical personnel. The unique capabilities of the 76-inch cyclotron and related facilities at CNL have been utilized by scientists and engineers from private industry, universities and government agencies.
The Center designs computational models and simulations for studies of complicated physical, chemical, and biological systems. The Center also has strong ties with the mathematics, engineering and computer science research being done on campus.
The Energy for the Future Initiative at UC Davis is an interdisciplinary program that focuses all current energy efforts into a single coordinated program. It targets three areas: energy for transportation systems, renewable energy, and energy at the molecular frontier.
The John Muir Institute supports innovation and discovery aimed at solving real-world environmental problems.
A program dedicated to increasing the number and quality of mathematics and science teachers.
Experimental exploration of Dark Energy and Dark Matter. Centered on the LSST, and directed by Tony Tyson, Universe@UCDavis is a collaboration between Physics, CS, Math, and Statistics departments.
