C-Squared Consulting

If you have a problem that you think we might be able to help with, just send us an email at c2questions@lists.stanford.edu.

As a good jumping-off point, we ask that your message include the following information:

  • What is the question you're trying to address?
  • What computational problem are you facing with which you'd like assistance?
  • What have you already tried to use to solve your problem, and why didn't it work?
  • Do you have relevant references/examples that our consultants can use to get better acquainted with the problem?
  • Do we have your permission to post your question as an example project on this site?
  • Are you a Stanford affiliate?

Faculty Margot Gerritsen

Faculty Margot Gerritsen

Margot Gerritsen's main interest is the design and analysis of efficient numerical solution methods for partial differential equations that arise in fluid dynamics. Her PhD thesis work emphasized mathematical techniques. Since, her focus has shifted to using such techniques for actual engineering applications.

Faculty Michael Saunders

Michael Saunders

Saunders develops mathematical methods for solving large-scale constrained optimization problems and large systems of equations. He also implements such methods as general-purpose software to allow their use in many areas of engineering, science, and business. He is co-developer of the large-scale optimizers MINOS, SNOPT, SQOPT, PDCO and the linear equation solvers SYMMLQ, MINRES, MINRES-QLP, LSQR, LSMR, LUSOL.
