Additional Information
This course provides a tutorial-style, practical introduction to computational tools for physics research and to the supercomputing resources available for the researchers in Finland. The topics will include, e.g., parallel computations on supercomputer Sisu and supercluster Taito, running analysis on GPGPUs and Xeon Phi, and Unix power use. The school provides also a comprehensive overview on the computational physics's applications and gives possibility for individual consultancy with CSC experts.
