EPCC, University of Edinburgh Supercomputing (EPCC-SupComp) Modelling + simulation
Intro Computing
Novice Novice Novice This free online course will introduce you to what supercomputers are, how they are used and how we can exploit their full computational potential to make scientific breakthroughs. Over five weeks, we’ll look at; Supercomputers: introducing supercomputing terminology and some of the largest machines in the world; Parallel computers: how they are built from hundreds of thousands of CPUs, each similar to those in a desktop PC; Parallel computing: using parallel processing to harness the power of all of those CPUs for a single calculation; Computer simulation: how we can perform virtual experiments to make real-life predictions; Case studies: how supercomputing is making scientific breakthroughs that were never possible before. Link TBD
