Supercomputing (HPC)


Supercomputing

Supercomputing, or high-performance computing (HPC),  is a computer or cluster of computers with a high level of computing performance when compared to a typical computer. The performance of a supercomputer is measured in floating-point operations per second instead of million instructions per second. High-performance computers can run advanced applications efficiently and quickly and are used mainly in the field of computer science and for computationally intensive tasks like molecular modeling, climate research, weather forecasting, quantum mechanics, and database analysis.

Trinity's high-performance computing equipment was funded by an NSF grant. Dr. Matt Hibbs (Computer Science) is the PI for this grant.
