Unit of Numerical Methods
The Unit has 15 computers that totals around one hundred cores, between computing nodes, visualization and storage SAN servers and 8 computers equipped with two supercomputing GPUs, GeForce GTX Titan Black, with KEPLER architecture from NVIDIA each. Together, the cluster offers a computing power of about 870 GFlops (one GFlop equals one billion floating-point operations per second).
Simulation based on numerical methods is nowadays one of the most important tools for the analysis, prediction and control of many phenomena that take place in our environment. This is particularly the case for the geophysical flows on which the work of the laboratory is currently focused, although it will probably be extended to other applications.
Numerical simulations performed in the Unit of Numerical Methods can be found in the EDANYA group web page. See here.
