Scientific Computing Lab


IntroductionThe Scientific Computing Lab is part of the School of Computer Science of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Our research interests are in the field of scientific computing with particular emphasis on numerical linear algebra and its applications. Scientific computing is the field of study concerned with using computers to analyse and solve scientific and engineering problems. To that end it constructs mathematical models and develops numerical solution techniques. Numerical linear algebra is at the heart of most scientific computing. Many problems can be effectively represented, or approximated, and then solved on computers as matrix based problems, while others require the solution of a large number of intermediate such problems. We develop algorithms and theory for solving basic and general problems, as well as problems arising from specific applied areas. We welcome visitors, postDoctoral Fellows, and good graduate students who are interested in our research areas. If you are interested in undergraduate or graduate studies in SOCS, see Prospective Students.
