Supercomputers allow researchers to discover previously unknown materials and to predict their properties based on theory. There is currently a great deal of interest in materials that could be used for producing renewable energy and for energy storage. Researchers from the University of Basel are using the Piz Daint supercomputer at CSCS to search for […]
CSCS organized in Lugano on December 14-15, 2015 a workshop on Advanced C++ for HPC. The course aimed at providing the fundamental tools for effective C++ programming in the context of HPC. The tools include generic programming techniques, API development, usage of already existing C++ libraries, and specific C++-11/14 constructs. Starting from a basic knowledge […]
