The Computational Physics Group

The Computational Physics Group (CPG) at the University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) was formed by Prof. Paul Rulis in the spring of 2011 as an independent spin-off from the highly successful Electronic Structure Group at UMKC.  The CPG is composed of student-researchers who are dedicated to the use of computer simulations to help discover, clarify, and disseminate fundamental knowledge about the physical laws that govern our universe.  The primary focus of the group is the realm of theoretical condensed matter physics, but expansion into other areas of physics research and education is never far from our sights.
