Brookhaven Lab is establishing itself as a global leader in tackling the challenges of Big Data, building on our existing expertise, capabilities, and investments in computational science and data management, and enabling scientific discovery in large-scale experimental environments.

About Us

Brookhaven Lab's Computational Science Initiative, known as CSI, excels at integrating computer science, applied mathematics, and computational science with broad domain expertise to tackle problems and advance knowledge impacting scientific discovery.

CSI has long focused on timely analysis and interpretation of high-volume, high-velocity heterogeneous data, providing solutions for the national and international scientific community. These efforts now are being augmented by CSI's growing high-performance computing capabilities.


CSI takes a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to its research, targeting challenges in cooperation with fellow researchers in science, national security, and industry—both at home and abroad.

We measure success by the transformational impacts we bring to how research is conducted and the advances we introduce to fundamental disciplines such as mathematics, data analysis, and computer science.

    CSI Q Seminar

    "CANCELLED Quantum-driven classical optimization"

    Presented by Helmut Katzgraber, Microsoft Research

    1:30 pm, Training Room, Bldg 725

    Wednesday, April 8, 2020, 1:30 pm

    Hosted by: Layla Hormozi

    The advent of the first useful quantum computing devices has resulted in an arms race with classical algorithms on traditional computing hardware. While near-term quantum devices might revolutionize, e.g., optimization and quantum chemistry, tackling many applications will directly depend on either hybrid or purely classical computing techniques. Inspired by these recent exciting developments, a variety of new classical algorithms have emerged. In this talk an overview on quantum inspired methods and their applications is given.

There are no conferences scheduled at this time.
