Many of the phenomena we encounter in our everyday lives, including sound, heat, and fluid flow, can be explained by a class of mathematics called partial differential equations. These equations can be solved using numerical simulations to give researchers insight into a broad range of science.

For certain applications, the number of variables required in these numerical simulations can be in the billions. Solving large-scale problems of this magnitude requires not only unprecedented computing power, but also algorithms that can harness this power to take full advantage of large-scale supercomputing systems.
