Fast, efficient solvers for multibody systems with contact
The positions are part of an ongoing research project being done in collaboration with a Montreal-based company doing cutting-edge physics simulation and VR training. The project has a strong success rate of publishing and technology transfer.
The goal of the project is to develop state-of-the-art techniques to improve the performance of multibody dynamics simulations involving contact and stiff mechanical systems. Topics include:
- Parallelization of algorithms for solving linear complementarity problems (LCPs);
- Hybrid techniques combining direct and iterative solvers;
- Machine learning and data-driven techniques applied to physics solvers.
Candidates should have experience with linear algebra and numerical methods, particularly for solving linear systems. Ability to program in C/C++ and MATLAB is a requirement, and experience programming interactive computer graphics applications is also desired.
