Supercomputers play an important role in the field of computational sciences, including quantum mechanics, weather forecasting, climate research, oil and gas exploration, molecular modeling (computing the structures and properties of chemical compounds, biological macromolecules, polymers, and crystals), and physical simulations (such as simulations of the early moments of the universe, airplane and spacecraft aerodynamics, the detonation of nuclear weapons, and nuclear fusion).

At HRI HPC is used for a wide range of computationally intensive tasks in Physics Research consists Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, High Energy Physics, String Theory , Quantum Information and Computation (QIC).

HRI-HPC comprises a diverse mix of computing and data resources. Linux clusters constitute the principal computing resource. In addition, HRI-HPC has a central facility that provides more than 100 terabytes of shared disk storage.

Housed in HRI’s state-of-the-art data center, HRI-HPC allows research scholars and faculty members to maximize their individual research resources. The compute power of HRI-HPC enables HRI researchers to tackle grand-challenge class problems in a specific range of scientific disciplines.

HRI-HPC has gigabit interfaces to the HRI campus network. These interfaces facilitate massive data transfers and interactive access to the computing facilities.

HRI-HPC admin staff monitor and maintain the equipment on a round-the-clock basis, enabling researchers to focus on their primary research.
