Science & Engineering Applications

Applications are an essential complement to our research and development in algorithm design, numerical libraries, collaborative middleware, data analysis and visualization, and exascale hardware and software.

Our computational scientists carry out investigations in such disciplines as Earth systems, engineering diagnostics, materials science, cosmology, nuclear reactor simulation, and metabolic modeling. We also collaborate with other computer and computational scientists to apply our new software tools and techniques in large-scale applications; for example, our PETSc software package has been used in more than 700 applications worldwide. Of particular note is our work with applications development teams in the Exascale Computing Program to apply the most advanced computer science and math techniques to DOE’s most critical applications.

Argonne's goal is to push the envelope in both computer science and computational science advances, addressing emerging exascale and post-Moore platforms.
