Our scientists are developing ways to speed-up codes and produce faster and more efficient processing.



CoSeC_Logo.jpgOne of these is Task-Based Parallelism, a method for passing data between processes in which a program is split into a series of tasks, which are then assigned to multiple cores (processing units) all working in parallel until the calculations are completed. This method reduces the amount of computing time needed, and increases the time scientists can spend on research.
