Computational Science

Exascale computing

We are involved with the EIC and the ECL at JSC with the aim to analyze future HPC architectures, with particular emphasis on their suitability for Lattice QCD simulations.


Here, we are involved in Project B3, which aims to find algorithms for Lattice QCD, and to provide the respective implementations of the software, that could make use of future architectures. Also here, our perspective is Exascale computing.
