CCP-Plasma - The Centre for Computational Plasma Physics (CCPP) brings together work from High Performance Computing, Computational Physics and Plasma Physics based on contributions from the University of Warwick's Computer Science and Physics departments in collaboration with AWE scientists. The Centre will focus on the challenge of developing, deploying and optimising, massively parallel, scientific software in the modern High Performance Computing (HPC) environment. The scale and sophistication of HPC platforms continues to evolve rapidly, this changing landscape presents a technical challenge which requires a understanding of each new generation of hardware and associated software implications. For a number of years AWE scientists and researchers in the fields of HPC, Computational Physics and Plasma Physics have worked with the Computer Science and Physics Departments at the University of Warwick on: problems in multi-scale parallelism and performance modelling; hydrodynamics algorithms; and kinetic plasma modelling. Based on these collaborations the Centre was established at Warwick in 2014.
