Computational Science Laboratory

The Computational Science Laboratory, a collaborative laboratory for advanced algorithm development and optimization led by Brookhaven computer scientist Nicholas D’Imperio, brings together expertise in high-performance computing (HPC), math, and domain science. It specifically addresses the challenge of developing new tools and techniques to deliver on the promise of exascale science—the ability to compute at a rate of 1018 (a billion billion) floating point operations per second (exaFLOPS). These computation rates are necessary to handle the copious amount of data created by computational models and simulations. The Computational Science Laboratory employs exascale computation to interpret and analyze exascale data anticipated from experiments on the horizon.

Without these tools, scientific results would remain hidden in the data generated by these simulations. These tools enable researchers to extract knowledge and share key findings.
