Physics

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 servicedesk@csc.fi).

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

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