Modeling and Simulation of Superconductivity

Superconductor simulation presents a grand challenge to scientific computing and has a direct impact on material science. Mathematically, one needs to find good models for high temperature superconductors and to analyze mathematical properties of the models. Computationally, practical numerical simulation is very time consuming so efficient computation methodologies are required. Simulation with high performance computing will help better understand and explain the physical phenomena of superconductivity, especially for high temperature, type II superconductors.

The speakers discuss modeling, analysis, numerical methods, and high performance computing related to superconductor simulation.
