TITLEComputational Forensics for the Laptop Bomb Terrorism Case

ABSTRACT The bombing of airliners has been a tactic used by terrorists during the past 40 years. It become a big issue for homeland security. To investigation of such bombings, this talk provides the results of the development of mathematical modeling and computer simulation for the study of aircraft bombings and associated forensics. The speaker will discuss some photographic evidence, introduce mathematical modeling and do computational modeling regarding a particular case --- Daallo Airline's bombing case on February 2, 2016, in which only a small amount of explosives was used to demonstrate the event reconstruction can be accomplished for the purpose of forensic investigations. Most of our supercomputer results are visualized by video animations in order to show the dynamic effects and phenomena of explosives and the associated event reconstruction.
