Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Parallel Algorithms & sCientific sOftware Operational Perfomances (Algo-Coop)


The new ALGO-COOP team merges the former “Parallel Algorithms Team” and the “Scientific Software Operational Performance Team”. Our now combined expertise covers the fundamental topics in scientific computing from both mathematics and computer science. We work in numerical algorithms, linear algebra, exascale computing, software engineering, data driven computing, data assimilation, uncertainty quantification, adaptive mesh generation, parallel load balancing, as well as in the rapidly growing fields of machine learning and artificial intelligence. An important role of the ALGO-COOP team within CERFACS is to bridge from fundamental research questions to computational problems for real-life applications.
