TACC Training Highlights

Introduction to PETSc with Victor Eijkhout

PETSc provides a framework for the development of computational science codes. Its focus is on solving linear and nonlinear systems, but it is more than a collection of algorithms: it is a complete toolkit supporting parallel data structures, linear algebra, PDEs, meshes.

TACC Institute Series  

The TACC Institute series is designed to help researchers further their science through applied computational techniques. Our goal is to broaden the number of people who use advanced computing; whether it’s for research, industry, or as a facilitator, there is an institute designed with you in mind.

Institutes are held on site at the Texas Advanced Computing Center and are in-person only. Meals provided. Detailed agendas will be posted when registration opens April 2024.
