Computing Sciences

The Computational Research Division conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation.

ESnet provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections linking scientists at national laboratories, universities and other research institutions, enabling them to collaborate on some of the world’s most important scientific challenges including energy, climate science, and the origins of the universe. Funded by the DOE Office of Science, and managed and operated by Berkeley Lab, ESnet provides scientists with access to unique DOE research facilities and computing resources.

The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) is the primary scientific computing facility for DOE’s Office of Science and a world leader in accelerating scientific discovery through computation and data analysis. More than 5,000 scientists use NERSC to perform basic research across a wide range of disciplines, including climate modeling, high energy physics, new materials, simulations of the early universe and a host of other scientific endeavors.
