SCD develops internationally-leading algorithms and software for the solution of large-scale computational problems arising in science, engineering, industry, and commerce.



This work builds upon innovative research undertaken in SCD into the underlying fundamental mathematics.  The Computational Mathematics group specialises in the solution of large sparse systems of linear equations, and of large-scale linear and nonlinear optimization problems. Members of the Group are involved in many collaborative ventures including projects with researchers both in the UK and overseas.
