Computational Engineering Applications Unit is to solve various problems brought by not only RIKEN researchers but also other peoples in industries, by means of computer simulation, data processing, database and so on. The unit name has “Engineering” but we are developing not only engineering applications but also other fields including visualization, parallelization, huge data processing. We are looking forward to working with you.
