Why Carnegie Mellon for Science?
Tapping into world-class computing power
Theoretical physicists Tiziana Di Matteo and Rupert Croft are harnessing the power of supercomputers to recreate how galaxies are born and how they develop over time. One of DiMatteo’s computer simulations, shown as snapshots on the monitors, reveals the time evolution of a collision of two spiral galaxies with black holes at their centers.
Carnegie Mellon has a long history of developing next-generation computing. Today we continue to push computing’s limits—our faculty and students have access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data-handling for solving the largest and most challenging problems in computational science.
