- The earliest maps of the world date to classical antiquity, an era when many still conceived of the Earth as flat. We’ve come a long way since in our understanding, and yet the ground beneath our feet has remained ever-mysterious--until now. Using the high performance computing machines with the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE), and the fastest computers in the nation, including Titan at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Professor Jeroen Tromp and his team a
- If a picture is worth a thousands words, a computer graphic is worth millions. With that in mind, Princeton University has formed a consortium that will share efforts to turn mountains of scientific data into eye-friendly computer visualizations. The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has named Computational Scientist Eliot Feibush to lead the consortium.
- Three miles from the main campus, Princeton’s high-performance computers hum undisturbed, cranking out projections of what happens when a neutron star encounters a black hole — things don’t go well for the neutron star — working out how trees know when it is safe to put out their spring leaves, and designing drug candidates for treating inflammatory diseases.
Welcome to Research Computing at Princeton
Research computing at Princeton University engages academic departments and disciplines across the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, and humanities. The Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE) and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) work together to provide the computational and digital data infrastructure and support that meet the research needs and priorities of Princeton's faculty, researchers, and students. The resources and services we provide centrally include computational and visualization hardware, software, system administration, programming, and visualization support.
