From NSWC Dahlgren:
A mathematician from Naval Floor Warfare Heart Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) was named because the winner of three awards.
Dr. Evan Coleman received the Dr. Charles J. Cohen Award of Excellence for Science and Expertise for his exemplary efforts in advancing the science of parallel computing, particularly within the space of creating fault tolerant strategies to be executed on excessive efficiency computing clusters. NSWCDD leaders additionally acknowledged Coleman with the fiscal 12 months 2019 In-Home Laboratory Impartial Analysis (ILIR) Mission of the Yr Award for his investigation of the robustness of the parallel iterative algorithms.
These algorithms are what drive many large-scale simulations with respect to the anticipated enhance within the fee at which faults will happen on excessive efficiency computing clusters. Furthermore, the scientist received the 2020 Warfare Heart Innovation Award in recognition of his efforts within the development within the space of creating fault tolerant strategies to be executed on excessive efficiency computing clusters. “I hope that the analysis that led to this award can ultimately be utilized in a sensible manner to assist enhance the productiveness on excessive efficiency computing platforms,” mentioned Coleman, “particularly when used on large-scale, high-fidelity simulations that may immediately result in an improved product for the warfighter.”
The Dr. Charles J. Cohen Award of Excellence for Science and Expertise Award acknowledges those that have both essentially impacted science or know-how with patented awarded work, made important contributions to a number of tasks that transitioned to a program of document, contributed with their analysis briefings or revealed analysis papers, or has collaborated with exterior companions. The nominee is chosen for his or her accomplishments which are related to the NSWCDD mission that additionally measurably impacts functionality. The Warfare Heart Innovation Award was originated from the Warfare Facilities’ Award. The Warfare Facilities’ Award was established in 2005 to acknowledge cross-Warfare Heart collaborative efforts. Ultimately, the award expanded into the next 5 classes: collaboration, innovation, information sharing, technical help providers, and expertise administration. -more-
The In-house Laboratory Impartial Analysis Excellence Award acknowledges a person or group whose analysis contributions present excellent technical or scientific advantage and are related to the mission of NSWCDD. These awards additionally acknowledge Coleman for his creativity and innovation for his work with the science of parallel computing and for creating novel variants of linear algebra routines and the instruments designed to assist within the numerical simulation of computing faults. His revealed analysis will proceed to contribute to the development within the science of fixing computationally complicated issues.
Coleman began with NSWCDD about eight years in the past, ultimately changing into concerned with the analysis packages through the ILIR analysis program, the place he has labored for the previous 4 years. “There are many individuals I’d wish to thank,” mentioned Coleman, “my spouse, Sara, for tolerating me spending extra time than I in all probability ought to working and all the time being extremely supportive, all of my instant supervisors for being very encouraging and permitting me numerous freedom in balancing my analysis endeavors with program particular work, and the ILIR committee at NSWC Dahlgren.” Coleman continued: “I additionally need to thank Dr. Jeff Solka, for believing in me and my analysis, and giving me the funding and help I wanted to execute analysis, and my collaborators at Outdated Dominion College, particularly Dr. Masha Sosonkina, for all of the cooperation and assist alongside the best way.” Naval Floor and Undersea Warfare Facilities Commander Rear Adm. Kevin Byrne mentioned of the awardees: “
Annually winners are chosen by the Warfare Facilities Board of Administrators, based mostly on suggestions from a panel of representatives together with division commanding officers, technical administrators and different personnel. Bravo Zulu to our 2020 winners!”
