High Performance Computing

Field of study: Computer Science
Description: The term High Performance Computing has been widely used to characterize the use of computing resources that are approximately an order of magnitude higher than commonly available features such as desktops or workstations.

This definition encompasses not only computers, but also the network technology, algorithms, and environments required to enable the use of these systems, which can range from clusters of PCs to large vector supercomputers.

Currently, the term supercomputer has been gradually replaced by the High-Performance Computing platform. Nowadays, these systems already surpass the Teraflops barrier, and the latest forecasts indicate that before the end of this decade there will be systems with processing capacity superior to the Petaflops barrier.

Thus, scientists have experienced a large increase in processing capacity in recent decades, allowing the solution of problems that were once considered intangible.

However, problems such as global climate prediction, sequencing of the human genome and simulation of flow in real-scale oil reservoirs are examples of applications that still pose a major challenge to the scientific community. Therefore, a lot of research work has been carried out in this line of research in order not only to improve the architecture and performance of the systems, but also to allow more efficient use of the available computational resources.

Research is developed within the following sub-areas: Scientific Computing, Computer Architecture and Parallel Algorithms.
