It develops, deploys and maintains computational infrastructure — from supercomputers to desktop PCs — dedicated solely to the use of Flatiron researchers.
Underlying all biological processes are molecules and their interactions with each other. However, our ability to understand how these molecules function over biologically relevant scales remains very limited.
Columbia University, the Flatiron Institute in New York City and the Max Planck Society in Germany have created a partnership, called the Center for Nonequilibrium Quantum Phenomena.

For distinguished scientists with a particular interest in diversity and inclusion
Scholars may engage in a variety of activities, such as working on scientific projects, starting new collaborations, mentoring junior scientists, and organizing or participating in workshops and career development events.
A major effort of the Flatiron Institute is the development and support of high-quality, open-source software for research.
Approximating the Gaussian as a Sum of Exponentials and Its Applications to the Fast Gauss Transform

Independently paced Ca2+ oscillations in progenitor and differentiated cells in an ex vivo epithelial organ
Cytosolic Ca2+ is a highly dynamic, tightly regulated and broadly conserved cellular signal. Ca2+ dynamics have been studied widely in…Journal of Cell Science
Andrew Millis is co-director of the Center for Computational Quantum Physics and associate director for Physics at the Simons Foundation. He has done fundamental research on heavy fermion compounds, quantum phase transitions, ‘colossal’ magnetoresistance materials and high transition-temperature superconductivity.
