- Congratulations to Christopher Hannon, T5/CNLS GRA, who recently won the best paper award at ACM PADS (Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation) conference.
- CNLS Postdoc Mentor and Collaborator, Carleton Coffrin, A-1, was recently featured in the news for his open-source software, Severe Contingency Solver, that helps government agencies better plan for power outages caused by extreme events.
- Congratulations Enrique Batista, CNLS Deputy Director, and Ping Yang, T-1, on being recognized and awarded LANL Distinguished Postdoc Mentors Awards. This award recognizes the positive impact and contributions that a mentor makes during a postdoc's appointment and who demonstrate a level of mentoring beyond expectations. Congratulations Enrique and Ping!

|What is CNLS?
The Center for Nonlinear Studies (CNLS) is part of the Laboratory's Theoretical Division, and it organizes research related to
nonlinear and complex systems phenomena. CNLS was formed in October of 1980.
CNLS Mission Statement
- Identify and study complex nonlinear phenomena using a diverse set of research approaches and methodologies, particularly those of statistical physics, nonlinear science, applied mathematics and numerical simulation.
- Promote the use of scientific results in applied research.
- Stimulate the formation of interdisciplinary approaches to complex problems.
- Facilitate the interchange of scientific results and ideas between Laboratory scientists and external centers of excellence.
- Encourage the exploration of new scientific frontiers at the interface between conventional disciplines.
- Support a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary science that underpins the Laboratory's mission in national security.
