ALPINES is a joint research group between Inria and J.L. Lions Laboratory, Sorbonne University, which focuses on scientific computing. The focus of our research is on the development of novel parallel numerical algorithms and tools appropriate for state-of-the-art mathematical models used in complex scientific applications, and in particular numerical simulations.
The proposed research program is by nature multi-disciplinary, interweaving aspects of applied mathematics, computer science, as well as those of several specific applications, as porous media flows, elasticity, wave propagation in multi-scale media, molecular simulations, and inverse problems.
- Our first objective is to develop numerical methods and tools for complex scientific and industrial
applications that will enhance their scalable execution on the emergent heterogeneous hierarchical
models of massively parallel machines.
- Our second objective is to integrate the novel numerical algorithms into a middle-layer that will hide as much as possible the complexity of massively parallel machines from the users of these machines.
