Areas of Interest for the HPC²
A common thread of research at the HPC² is computational simulation
of physical phenomena, but this exists in a rich fabric of high technology
that ranges from software engineering to submarine propulsion, from load
balancing in parallel computing to visualization and interpretation of
remotely sensed data, from computational geometry to algorithm development,
and from materials modeling to crash simulations.
This list indicates general areas of research activity within the
HPC². Many areas listed here may overlap or are subsets of other
