Team presentation

The objective of this project is to leverage complementary scientific skills for multidisciplinary research in the field of high performance computing and numerical modeling. To achieve this goal, the project intends to analyze and efficiently solve scientific computing problems coming from complex applications that require computing power and manipulate data of the order of the teraflop.

Research themes

  • Compact multidimensional schemes
  • High performance algorithms
  • High performance implementation, visualization and steering of distributed numerical simulations by a virtual reality code.
