MuST Program Simplifies Predictions of Material Properties

An international collaboration led by PSC has developed MuST —named for the “multiple scattering theory” on which it’s based— a new, open-source supercomputing code that makes it possible to simulate samples of material large enough for real-world relevance in much less time than traditional engineering methods.

PSC Receives International Honors for Storm Damage Predictions, Classification of Star Formations

BEST Program leaves lasting impact on students, educators

PSC’s BEST – Bioinformatics Education for STudents – program is commemorating its 15th anniversary this year. The program coaches high school teachers in bioinformatics curriculum, designed specifically for high school students. Read our article on the development of the program, and its impact on the educators and students.

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a joint computational research center with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. PSC provides university, government and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data storage available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research. PSC advances the state of the art in high-performance computing, communications and data analytics and offers a flexible environment for solving the largest and most challenging problems in research.

PSC Coronavirus Updates

With the nation—and the world—disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) would like to offer our wishes for safety and health for all. To do our part in protecting the country’s wellbeing, we have been working with a national alliance of high-performance computing resources called the COVID-19 HPC Consortium.
