The Beowulf Cluster

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is proud to have high performance computing resources dedicated to research activities. The focal points of our facilities are:

  • a cluster of 24 machines, each configured with 4 cores running at 2.6 GHz and 4 GB of RAM
  • an 8-core 2.5 GHz machine with 128 GB of RAM

These computers accommodate both parallelised computing as well tasks that are highly memory intensive in nature.

Moreover, it is possible to also link up with additional non-research-dedicated computers on campus (such as the departmental computer lab), bringing together over 300 processors to be used by distributed applications.


We gratefully thank the following for their support:
