Dr. Alexandre Tartakovsky joined the Advanced Computing, Mathematics, and Data Division as the full-time Associate Division Director for Computational Mathematics. In his new role, Alex will oversee the talented personnel who compose ACMD Division’s Computational Mathematics group, which includes computational engineering, uncertainty quantification, multiscale mathematics, and computational social sciences teams. Alex’s goal is to continue building PNNL’s Computational Mathematics group to world-class strength. Read more.
In a demonstration of PNNL’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the Science of Computing by achieving high-performance, power-efficient, and reliable computing at extreme scales, scientists from ACMD Division’s HPC group have joined researchers from the U.S. Army and DARPA as part of the Suite of Embedded Applications and Kernels, or SEAK, program. SEAK’s primary goal is to advance the capabilities of high-performance embedded computing applications for U.S. Department of Defense purposes. PNNL is handling all of SEAK’s technical aspects.
SEAK also has issued an RFI to ascertain processing workloads that pose a challenge to even the most advanced HPEC systems. The response date for the RFI is Friday, December 05, 2014. Read more.
About the Division
PNNL’s Computational Sciences & Mathematics Division focuses on the “Science of Computing” and creating new computational capabilities to solve problems using extreme-scale simulation and data analytics.
The Computational Sciences & Mathematics Division (CSMD) at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory provides science, technologies, and leadership to solve significant problems of national interest in energy, environment, national security, and fundamental science. At CSMD, our research is aimed at creating new, state-of-the-art computational capabilities using extreme-scale simulation and peta-scale data analytics that enable scientific breakthroughs.
We are developing intelligent hardware and software solutions that analyze, store, and share data in ways that enable innovative research, while reducing both cost and time. These research and development activities are giving rise to scientific breakthroughs in high-impact areas, including infrastructures, computing architectures, and advanced analytical techniques.
In addition, CSMD offers investigator-initiated and multi-institutional collaborative research, unique scientific instrumentation, and national program leadership to translate the latest discoveries into technologies for the scientific community.
To address a constantly shifting set of opportunities as new areas of inquiry become technically feasible for the first time, CSMD is cultivating research capabilities in:
- Computational Mathematics
- Data Intensive Scientific Computing (DISC)
- High Performance Computing
- Scientific Data Management
