Computer time allocation

Last updated July 26, 2017 by Andrew Brown

Under a collaborative proposal (HZAD) between the University of Strathclyde and Queen’s University (Dr Cathy Ramsbottom, Dr Connor Ballance) a bid for over 15,000 million CPU hrs has been granted under the EUROfusion program.

The grant will allow group members access to a Lenovo NeXtSscale supercomputer called ‘Marconi’ capable of 20 PFlop/s and also to emerging multi-core platforms such as Intel’s second generation Xeon-Phi processor (KNL) capable of up to 272 threads per core.


We are a Research Cluster of the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland. Our research interests are focused primarily on computational and theoretical physics.
