Centre for High Performance Scientific Computing

High Performance Computing (HPC) is solving some of the most important problems in science today by pushing computer hardware and software technology to their limits. By definition the prime focus for HPC is performance---the ability to solve the biggest possible problems in the least possible time.

Keeping in view the important role of HPC in innovative science and engineering, the center is established with the following aims and objectives:

  • Support science and engineering
  • Conduct research, development, and evaluation of parallel programming languages, libraries, and paradigms
  • Produce HPC experts capable of pursuing innovative science and engineering efforts
  • Software Used
