NAG Press Releases 2011
- The Numerical Algorithms Group receives internationally recognised quality award
December 2011 - Following an independent assessment The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) has been awarded ISO 9001 certification. ISO 9001 is an international standard, recognised world-wide, that addresses the requirements of quality management systems and gaining certification to this level highlights NAG's commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
- Building a better nuclear reactor with NAG
November 2011 - Researchers at Queen Mary, University of London and STFC Daresbury Laboratory (DL) who are employing the HECToR supercomputer to investigate radiation damage in containers have been making use of NAG’s expertise in HPC software engineering.
- Computational support for supercomputer service passes 50 person years
November 2011 - Fifty years of expert skills have been allocated by NAG for computational science and engineering projects associated with the UK National HPC Service.
- Numerical Algorithms Group announces new functionality for the NAG Library
July 2011 - NAG has announced the availability of the latest NAG Fortran Library. The Library contains over 1,700 powerful, reliable and flexible algorithms, ready for use from a wide range of operating systems, languages, environments and packages.
- NAG participating in Intel Many Integrated Core developments
June 2011 - Working closely with Intel Corporation in the evaluation of the suitability of Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel® MIC) architecture for advanced numerical algorithms. A focused development team at NAG has had early access to the Intel MIC software development platform (codenamed “Knights Ferry”) and early versions of the associated software stack.
- Over 1,000 people have now benefitted from on-going HPC training program
May 2011 - The purpose of the courses is to equip users to effectively use HPC computers, in particular HECToR - short for High-End Computing Terascale Resource, a Research Councils UK high end computing service. The HPC training programme covers topics ranging from getting started on the system to improving parallel application performance and scalability on distributed memory machines. Although aimed mainly at HECToR users, the courses may also be of interest to a wider community. Training courses are held at NAG's offices or at various universities.
