Mathematical modelling and computer simulation in the fields of ocean, atmosphere, earth science and engineering involve computational tasks which can only be provided by High Performance Computing (HPC). The need for computational power, measured in terms of Giga Floating Point Operations per Seconds (FLOPS), grows exponentially with every bit of increase in the complexity of problem. C-MMACS today has one of the best computing facilities in the country. In addition the HPC group is also involved in research in the field of Cryptography and Network Security.
CSIR C-MMACS has made significant enhancement to both the supercomputing and communication infrastructure with the state of art supercomputing facility. The current topics of research are:
- Cryptography and secure communication
- Cyber security and ethical hacking
- Denial-of-Service attacks
- Parallel algorithms
