PDC

PDC operates leading-edge, high-performance computers on a national level. PDC offers easily accessible computational resources that primarily cater to the needs of Swedish academic research and education. PDC also takes part in major international projects to...

Visualization

The human visual sense is superior to today’s computers in terms of perceiving image content. Using the human visual system's high bandwidth supports rapid transfer of digital data representations to the user. It is this human capability that visualization builds upon, by...

Electronic Structure

The research within the Electronic Structure community aims at understanding and predicting the properties of materials and molecules, by computing the quantum-mechanical state of the many-electron system. The computations are ideally based on first principles (often called...

Distributed and Parallel Techniques

Future HPC application will require a much higher degree of parallelism. Many new solutions are expected to be provided from computer science including new programming languages, advanced features in compilers and runtime systems as well as new software development and performance monitoring...

Application Experts

The application experts work both at NSC/PDC and with the researchers in the e-Science communities. They are HPC experts within their respective field of application (for example bioinformatics, computational chemistry or climate modelling). The goal is to enable better use of the e-Science...

FLOW

The intricate behaviour of flowing fluids in both nature and technical applications has fascinated scientists and laymen alike for centuries. Complex phenomena such as turbulence are ubiquitous in fluid flows, and studying them is of major relevance not only for industrial applications, but also...

SeRC Exascale Simulation Software Initiative - SESSI

The SeRC Steering group established a new flagship program on software for Exascale simulations. The program aims to improve the performance and scalability of selected software packages by establishing new collaborative projects for exchange of expertise among research groups in the Molecular...

VIC

The visualisation studio at KTH (VIC) is a resource for students and researchers. The studio houses many different technologies to view and interact with large amounts of data and its different applications, including haptics, eye-tracking, and various...

Numerical Analysis

Development of numerical algorithms is critical in successful e-Science based research, often matching or outperforming improvements of hardware in terms of speed gains. The work in the numerical analysis group focus on algorithm development and analysis for multiscale, multiphysics and...

Molecular Simulation

Semi-empiric simulation methods have been responsible for tremendous advances in chemistry, life science, and materials research. The possibility to accurately model finite temperature, time development, and very large systems has made these methods a cornerstone for biomolecular modelling and...
