Team presentation

ALPINES is a joint research group between INRIA and J.L. Lions Laboratory, UPMC, which focuses on scientific computing. The topics studied in the group are mesh generation for parallel computation, linear solvers based on domain decomposition methods and incomplete factorizations, and computational kernels for sparse and dense linear algebra. The developed numerical algorithms are regularly integrated into FreeFem++ package and are validated on challenging numerical simulations in collaboration with our academic and industrial partners.

In summary, the topics studied in our group are the following:

  • Numerical methods and algorithms
    • Computational kernels for numerical linear algebra
    • Linear solvers
    • Middle-layer for numerical simulations – parallel FreeFem++
  • Modelisation and numerical simulations
