Welcome to the Erlangen National High Performance Computing Center (NHR@FAU). Being part of the German national HPC infrastructure (NHR Alliance), our interdisciplinary team

To this end, NHR@FAU closely collaborates with the Erlangen Regional Computing Center (RRZE). Our fields of expertise include

  • node-level performance engineering for CPUs and GPUs,
  • hardware-efficient and scalable building blocks for sparse solvers, and
  • atomistic simulations in chemistry, life sciences, and materials science.

Computing Crossroads is a research initiative with the intention of providing a computing perspective across a wide variety of fields, and conversely, the huge amount of value brought to this field by those coming from areas traditionally considered unrelated. The organization aims to expose the div...
