Numerical Methods and Libraries

The Department of Numerical Methods and Libraries provides numerical libraries and compilers for HLRS computing platforms. The department has expertise in implementing algorithms on different processors and HPC environments, including vectorization based on the architecture of modern computers. Department members also conduct research related to the simulation of blood flow and bone fracture in the human body, and are responsible for training courses focused on programming languages and numerical methods that are important for HPC.
