Program Description:

The Centre for Scientific Computing is a multi-disciplinary, multi-school research centre facilitating computationally driven research, throughout the sciences and engineering. This is achieved by the sharing of expertise in computational methods and algorithms, encouraging the cross-fertilisation of ideas between researchers in the various disciplines, and enabling access to high-performance computing resources. Key Research Interests: • Algorithm design, with particular reference to grid computing • Combinatorics • Algorithms for Bioinformatics • Algorithms for Financial Mathematics • Computational Chemistry and Physics Application of research in an industry/societal context: One of the main aims of the CSC is the creation of sustainable high technology employment in the South East Region. It is engaged with local industry in a number of applied research projects. It is cooperating with universities in Ireland and internationally in running a one-week PhD Summer School twice a year in Scientific Computing.
