Argonne National Laboratory

SciDAC-4 Institutes

Researchers in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) Division will play a key role in two institutes funded through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program.

The purpose of the SciDAC Institutes is to advance scientific discovery in areas of strategic importance to DOE by providing intellectual resources in applied mathematics and computer science, expertise in algorithms and methods, and software tools for scientific problem solving.

  • The RAPIDS SciDAC Institute for Computer Science and Data (an abbreviation for Resource and Application Productivity through Computation, Information, and Data Science) addresses data understanding, platform readiness, and scientific data management challenges through deep engagements with applications.
  • FASTMath (an abbreviation for Frameworks, Algorithms and Scalable Technologies for Mathematics) seeks to introduce leading-edge computational math technologies and deploy high-performance software on DOE supercomputers.
