HPC from A-Z (part 8) - H

This blog post will focus on the letter H, and how HPC is being used to crunch data to determine the origins of the universe!

High Energy Physics – When it comes to high energy physics, there is only one name in the frame: CERN. The European Organization for Nuclear Research is using HPC for the Large Hadron Collider. The Large Hadron Collider is a 100 meter long particle accelerator designed to improve our understandings of atoms and the universe. This is quite possibly the most fascinating and imaginative use of HPC. Can you think of one that trumps it?

CERN depends on computing power to ensure that 17,000+ scientists and researchers in 270 research centers in 48 countries can collaborate on a global scale to solve the mysteries of matter and the universe. An HPC environment is central to this, and enables scientist and researchers to quickly analyze the data.
