The UNN IT team prepared a special presentation of the "Lobachevsky Supercomputer" project to help the representatives of the government, academia, and mass media understand the importance of the supercomputer for the Nizhni Novgorod Region.
"This supercomputer can be used to perform large-scale and very complex calculations. For example, such calculations are often used in non-linear physics, because nothing can be solved directly in this field of science", stated Evgeny Chuprunov. However, this 580-teraflop computer will primarily be used to solve tasks for biomedicine, biology, as well as for modelling various technical devices.
Alexander Povalko noted that this supercomputer should not be used for some random things. "That's why I like the University of Nizhni Novgorod, because along with the launch of 'Lobachevsky', it has also put together a portfolio of complex tasks for this supercomputer", stated Deputy Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.
Dean of the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of UNN, Viktor Gergel, mentioned that "Lobachevsky" is one the most powerful supercomputers in the world. It will take almost 100 thousand years for the entire population of the Earth to manually do the amount of calculations that "Lobachevsky" can do in a second. Its computational capabilities can be applied for many tasks and can help many researchers in various fields of science.
