Physics at CSC is very much concentrated on High Performance Computing (HPC).

Many customers are using their own software on CSC HPC-computers. Service to physics customers are thus to a large extent provided by keeping the HPC computer environment at CSC efficient, up-to-date and useful.

To further improve the availability of top-end HPC hardware to our customers, CSC provide opportunities to apply for computing time on the largest computers in Europe via PRACE ( and DECI ( projects.

CSC is also strongly involved in scientific HPC software development and optimization, both in-house codes and customer codes are optimized and developed (request support via

Another important part of CSC service to computational physics is to provided training.

Finally, CSC provide a set of useful codes installed, optimized and ready to use.
