Manchester-NAG-RAL Workshop (MNR13)
October 23, 2013
School of Mathematics, The University of Manchester

The aim of the workshop is to highlight recent advances in numerical analysis, numerical software and high performance computing at the University of Manchester, NAG, and the Numerical Analysis Group at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL). Manchester, NAG and RAL are nodes of the EPSRC Network Numerical Algorithms and High Performance Computing (NA-HPC), which is providing financial support.
