Ralph Smith is a Distinguished Professor of Mathematics in the North Carolina State University Department of Mathematics, Associate Director of the Center for Research in Scientific Computing (CRSC), and a member of the Operations Research Program.

- NSF Research Training Group (RTG): Mathematics of Materials (2007-12)

This program provided a number of interdisciplinary research and training opportunities for undegraduates, graduate students, and postdocs in the mathematical sciences. The research activities were organized around five topics that play a fundamental role in emerging technologies: multifunctional materials, polymers and composites including carbon nanotubes, orthopaedic biomaterials, dynamics of thin material layers, and material behavior of laser welding.

- Description Of Research:
Mathematical modeling of smart materials, numerical analysis and
numerical methods for physical systems, parameter estimation, control theory, uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis.
