Our research explores a number of different scientific simulation fields, most of which have particular significance to LLNL programs (e.g., high-energy-density physics). Other scientific simulation work showcases the Lab’s high performance computing capabilities in collaborative efforts with scientists at other institutions.

In “Supercomputing 101: A History of Platform Evolution and Future Trends,” Rob Neely traces the history of HPC as defined by the dominant platforms.
LLNL computer scientist Punita Sinha feels she has made the right career choice.
Livermore computer scientist and HPC advocate Rob Neely relishes the diverse nature of his responsibilities.
LLNL Computing excels at building effective multidisciplinary teams that connect our own skilled researchers with experts in government, academia, and private industry to perform compelling applied research. For one recent effort, aimed at reducing our nation’s dependency on fossil fuels, LLNL computational experts teamed with Navistar, Inc., NASA’s Ames Research Center, and the U.S. Air Force to develop and test devices for reducing the aerodynamic drag of semitrucks.
At LLNL, our mission is to anticipate the needs of the country. As the world’s technological capabilities evolve at an increasingly rapid pace, so do threats to the United States, particularly in the areas of energy and climate, environmental security, domestic and international security (including network and cyber security), nuclear security and counterterrorism, and space situational awareness.
