What is it?

The High Performance Computing Cluster (HPC) connects a set of computers together via a high-speed network to provide a single, shared resource.  Over the past three years, UIT has observed an increasing demand for the HPC research cluster and the new High Performance  Computing research environment brings more than 1000-cores of computing power to the Tufts community. Several departments across the University are engaged in projects using HPC.

Within the Department of Physics & Astronomy, these include: simulation of string networks for the investigation of string theory and analysis from the Large Hadron Collider, among others.
