The research group "scientific computing" of Thomas Ludwig at DKRZ and at the Universität Hamburg puts its focus on the storage of high volume data sets in high performance computing systems and investigates issues of energy efficiency. Innovative new compression algorithms reduce the storage space for data intensive climate simulations and optimize the energy consumption of the respective storage systems. Complementary to this, the groups offers lecture courses at the university in the area of technical and methodological aspects of high performance computing.
