20th annual Sir Nevill Mott Public Lecture presented by Sir David Wallace

This year's Mott lecture will be given by Sir David Wallace on Wednesday 11 March at 5.15 pm in W004. The title of the talk will be "High Performance Computing".

The technology of High Performance Computing (HPC) is crucially underpinned by physics and mathematics. In turn HPC is a vital tool for research across the sciences, and for innovation. At the heart of modern HPC is our ability to exploit massively parallel systems, which can consume MWatts of power and deliver billions of calculations per watt. This talk will review the evolution of HPC systems and give examples of the remarkable applications in science which they now support.
