Our research projects vary in size, scope, and duration, but they share a focus on developing tools and methods that help LLNL deliver on its missions to the nation and, more broadly, advance the state of the art in scientific HPC. Projects are organized here in three ways: Active projects are those currently funded and regularly updated. Legacy projects are no longer actively developed. The A-Z option sorts all projects alphabetically, both active and legacy.
LLNL’s cyber programs work across a broad sponsor space to develop technologies addressing sophisticated cyber threats directed at national security and civilian critical infrastructure.
The MAPP incorporates multiple software packages into one integrated code so that multiphysics simulation codes can perform at scale on present and future supercomputers.
El Capitan will have a peak performance of more than 2 exaflops—roughly 16 times faster on average than the Sierra system—and is projected to be several times more energy efficient than Sierra.
This project advances research in physics-informed ML, invests in validated and explainable ML, creates an advanced data environment, builds ML expertise across the complex, and more.
LC sited two different AI accelerators in 2020: the Cerebras wafer-scale AI engine attached to Lassen; and an AI accelerator from SambaNova Systems into the Corona cluster.
Upgraded with the C++ programming language, VBL provides high-fidelity models and high-resolution calculations of laser performance predictions.
A Livermore-developed programming approach helps software to run on different platforms without major disruption to the source code.
Supported by the Advanced Simulation and Computing program, Axom focuses on developing software infrastructure components that can be shared by HPC apps running on diverse platforms.
BUILD tackles the complexities of HPC software integration with dependency compatibility models, binary analysis tools, efficient logic solvers, and configuration optimization techniques.
StarSapphire is a collection of scientific data mining projects focusing on the analysis of data from scientific simulations, observations, and experiments.
Proxy apps serve as specific targets for testing and simulation without the time, effort, and expertise that porting or changing most production codes would require.
fpzip is a library for lossless or lossy compression of multidimensional floating-point arrays. It was primarily designed for lossless compression.
The SAMRAI library is the code base in CASC for exploring application, numerical, parallel computing, and software issues associated with structured adaptive mesh refinement.
The Maestro Workflow Conductor is a lightweight, open-source Python tool that can launch multi-step software simulation workflows in a clear, concise, consistent, and repeatable manner.
TEIMS manages collaborative tasks, site characterization, risk assessment, decision support, compliance monitoring, and regulatory reporting for the Environmental Restoration Department.
ADAPD integrates expertise from DOE national labs to analyze growing global data streams and traditional intelligence data, enabling early warning of nuclear proliferation activities.
Simulation workflows for ALE methods often require a manual tuning process. We are developing novel predictive analytics for simulations and an infrastructure for integration of analytics.
FGPU provides code examples that port FORTRAN codes to run on IBM OpenPOWER platforms like LLNL's Sierra supercomputer.
The hypre library's comprehensive suite of scalable parallel linear solvers makes large-scale scientific simulations possible by solving problems faster.
Umpire is a resource management library that allows the discovery, provision, and management of memory on next-generation architectures.
Users need tools that address bottlenecks, work with programming models, provide automatic analysis, and overcome the complexities and changing demands of exascale architectures.
This open-source file system framework supports hierarchical HPC storage systems by utilizing node-local burst buffers.
The PRUNERS Toolset offers four novel debugging and testing tools to assist programmers with detecting, remediating, and preventing errors in a coordinated manner.
