Issues
addressed and main goals of research:
Carrying out paramount advanced research in computational mathematics and physics, directed to the creation of new mathematical methods, algorithms, and software for the numerical or symbolicnumerical solution of topics arising in experimental and theoretical physics studies. This subject area includes a wide spectrum of investigations approved for completion in JINR within the sevenyear period 2017–2023 in high energy physics, nuclear physics, physics of condensed matter and of nanostructures, biophysics, information technologies, the solution of which is inseparable from the use of computing. Such subject matters of the outmost importance in JINR are the NICA project, the neutrino program, the superheavy and exotic nuclei physics, the neutronbased investigations. The needed numerical or symbolicnumerical computing will be done on the Multifunctional Information and Computing Complex (MICC), primarily the HybriLIT heterogeneous computing platform which involves the training and test cluster HybriLIT and the "Govorun" supercomputer and the emerging Big Data distributed infrastructure. The research teams include both experienced scientists with outstanding scientific achievements and enthusiastic young scientists and engineers. The requested financing will cover salaries, participations in scientific conferences, scientific visits and the acquisition of a minimal number of personal computers and licenses, within the approved resources for MLITJINR. A distinctive feature of this research is the close cooperation of the Meshcheryakov Laboratory of Information Technologies (MLIT) with research groups from all JINR laboratories and Member State institutions.
