Overview of the Laboratory

Welcome to LabSC

The Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LabSC) is a research group based at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. The Lab develops, implements and applies advanced numerical algorithms and computational methodologies for the solution of problems arising from scientific, technology and engineering applications.

Researchers at LabSC are primarily engaged with the design of algorithms for multiscale and multiphysics problems described by nonlinear, inhomogeneous systems of partial differential equations. The implementations of the algorithms take advantage of current and next-generation massively parallel computational architectures.

The group has c. 30 staff, PDRAs, PhDs, MPhils, as well as a number of long-term academic and industrial visitors.

The funding of LabSC comes primarily from industry; for more information, see: Working with industry .
