Centers

Research centers are created to bring together teams of researchers to work on significant scientific problems or areas. They often engage faculty and their associated groups of students and postdoctoral researchers from multiple schools at Georgia Tech, other universities, and government laboratories.

In the last two decades investigations of nonlinear phenomena in nature have developed into a field of great importance that affects many branches of natural science and technology. GT is exceptionally strong in this field; in a number of departments researchers working on nonlinear systems rank among the leaders in their respective research areas. The aim of this cross-disciplinary Center is to combine these strengths. The Center aims to foster an experimental and theoretical approach that stresses the unity of the concepts underlying a wide range of physical and biological phenomena, and...

The Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA) is devoted to interdisciplinary research and education linking astrophysics, astroparticle physics, numerical relativity and gravitational wave physics. Our research focuses on extreme astrophysics such as mergers of black holes and neutron stars, central engines of active galactic nuclei, gamma ray bursts, and sources of the high energy cosmic rays and neutrinos.
