The High Performance Computing Laboratory concentrates on the design of high performance systems software for scientific and commodity computing environments. Emphasizing semi- analytical approaches to the understanding of complex systems such as networks and numerical libraries, the HPC Lab has projects that span the gamut from gigabit/s communication subsystems, to numerical algorithms for huge, sparse linear systems of equations, to object-oriented applications that utilize the infrastructure to solve real problems. Standards-based approaches to computer software are emphasized, in that good ideas are pushed into standards whenever possible, to help assure their acceptance, or to find better paths that can also be adopted by industry and government. Work is undertaken at the Department of Computer and Information Sciences where a well-equipped laboratory is housed.
