UC Santa Barbara's Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) has added a state-of-the-art, high-performance, computing cluster to its resources for campus researchers from a variety of disciplines. The center is co-directed by Frank Brown, professor in the UCSB Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Paul Weakliem. Housed at Elings Hall, CSC is a collaboration between CNSI and the Materials Research Laboratory (MRL). Other principal investigators are Glenn Fredrickson, professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and director of the Mitsubishi Chemical Center for Advanced Materials; Chris Van de Walle, professor in the Materials Department; Carlos Garcia-Cervera, professor in the Department of Mathematics; and John Gilbert, professor in the Department of Computer Science. Funding for the new system comes primarily from the National Science Foundation's program for Major Research Instrumentation.
