This week the University of Manchester announced it is heading up a large interdisciplinary network of institutions focused on numerical algorithms and HPC. Funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the network will develop short courses and workshops for training undergrad and postdoctoral researchers.

This is an exciting opportunity to bring together numerical analysis and computer science researchers with scientists and engineers who use numerical software for high performance computing,” said Professor Nick Higham. “The major challenges are to develop new numerical algorithms for analysing increasingly large and complicated mathematical models and to build associated software that exploits multicore processors, which are often used with graphics processing units or field-programmable gate arrays as accelerators.”

The network comprises0 The University of Manchester, NAG Ltd, Centre for Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software (NAIS), The University of Oxford, Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and University College London (UCL).
