Theory and modelling activities employ extensive computing resources across
a variety of platforms, from modest Monte-Carlo simulations of nucleation and
growth on a desktop pc to demanding ab-initio electronic structure
calculation of the magnetic properties of metallic
nanoparticulates. The group will shortly begin building a Beowulf computational
cluster as a result of a new EPSRC funded project - a
PhD studentship to undertake the associated
modelling work is available.
