Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) Program Mission

The ASCR program at LLNL supports fundamental research in the applied mathematics, computer science, and data science disciplines.

Our research portfolio includes advanced numerical methods development for solving complex physics applications on high-performance computers; basic research on the tools and methods necessary to allow scientists to effectively use the current and next generation of high performance computers; and technologies that increase our understanding of massive scientific data sets. This research is synergistic with LLNL missions and long-term strategic objectives, particularly as they pertain to the use of simulation and exascale computing environments.
