The School on numerical analysis and algorithms towards exascale (CoS-1) is the first out of four training workshops organized by HPC-LEAP for the students enrolled on the programme.

The first School in the series is part of course CoS-1 and will present the mathematical foundations and algorithms needed for numerical simulation, with an emphasis on the concepts and issues needed to approach the exascale. The core techniques for the research interests of HPC-LEAP will be reviewed in four series of lectures, covering Monte Carlo methods, the underlying mathematical ideas behind efficient methods to find numerical solutions to molecular dynamics, iterative techniques to solve large, sparse linear systems and advanced topics such as numerical solutions to partial differential equations and the fast Fourier transform.
