The ultimate goal of this network is the development, analysis and computation of novel kinetic descriptions with particular focus on

- Quantum dynamics with applications to chemistry;
- Network dynamics with applications to social sciences;
- Kinetic models of biological processes.

KI-Net is offering a unique platform to carry out these objectives by fostering cross-fertilization between mathematics and other scientific disciplines. It is centered around three hubs: the Center for Scientific Computation & Math Modeling (CSCAMM) in the University of Maryland, the Institute for Computational and Engineering Science (ICES) at UT Austin, and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

**Eitan Tadmor**

KI-Net Director

KI-Net Director Eitan Tadmor from CSCAMM hub at UMD has been awarded the 2015 Peter Henrici Prize.

The work of Sara Merino Aceituno, PhD Candidate in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and an active member of KI-Net, has been featured in a film called "Describing Patterns", available at YouTube.

KI-Net CSCAMM Hub hosts a computation server for KI-Net core participants and dedicated for KI-Net related research. This platform has 32 cores operating at 3.1GHz, 128 Gb of RAM, 1Tb of data storage, and 256 Gb of SSD based fast access storage. Intel fortran, C, and C++ compilers. Additional software will be added on an as needed basis, and currently includes Matlab 2012b.
