Center of Computational Materials Science

The goal of the materials science is to understand and predict properties of complicated physical systems with a vast number of degrees of freedom. Since such problems cannot be solved with bare hands, it is quite natural to use computers in materials science. In fact, computer-aided science has been providing answers to many problems ranging from the most fundamental ones to the ones with direct industrial applications. In the recent trends of the hardware developments, however, the growth of computer power is mainly due to the growth in the number of the units. This fact thrusts a very challenging problem before us --- how can we parallelize computing tasks? In order to solve this problem in an organized way, we coordinate the use of the computational resources available to our community. In addition, we support community members through various activities such as administrating the website "MateriApps" for information on application software in computational science. We are also acting as the headquarters of the post-K computer project (priority area 7), as well as participating other national projects such as the post-K computer project (pioneering area 1), Professional Development Consortium for Computational Materials Scientists, and Energy Strategy Initiative.
