Section: Application Domains
The project-team research activities address scientific computing and specifically numerical applications that require the execution of several codes simultaneously (code-coupling). This kind of applications requires both the use of parallel and distributed systems. Parallel processing is required to address performance issues. Distributed processing is needed to fulfill the constraints imposed by the localization and the availability of resources, or for confidentiality reasons. Such applications are being experimented within contracts with the industry or through our participation to application-oriented research grants.
