Modelling and Simulation

The simulation of complex systems in natural science or engineering depends on the development of adequate mathematical models. Thus the development of realistic and yet efficient models is a core activity at JSC. Examples of simulations are:


Algorithms and Methods

Efficient simulations need powerful algorithms and methods. JSC focusses on the development of the following methods:

HPC Technology

JSC meets the challenges that arise from the development of exaflop systems - the computers of the next supercomputer generation. Research and development is especially done on cluster systems, quick network connections and optimization of parallel programs.

Distributed Computing

Grids and Clouds are the most prominent appearances of distributed computing. Through research on resource and data management, workflows, virtualisation, and security JSC fosters the easy and secure access to distributed systems and data that builds the foundation for the exploitation of results across scientific domains.
