High Performance Computing

The Soft Matter Physics and Biological Physics group work closely with the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (link is external) which has provided computing resource, expertise and training to industry for over 25 years.   In addition to hosting the UK’s supercomputer, ARCHER, EPCC supports the UK's new Research Data Facility (RDF). 

A considerable number of our computer simulations are run on ARCHER.
