Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd (NAG)
The Numerical Algorithms Group has been a world leader in the development and distribution of numerical software for more than 40 years. Since April 2007 it has been providing the Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) support for HECToR, the high end computing service for the UK research community. NAG is best known for its numerical libraries (available in a range of languages and environments) but is also involved in the standardisation of Fortran, OpenMP and MathML, has developed its own Fortran compiler and provides consultancy services to a variety of vendors and users of scientific software. In the UK it has offices in Oxford and Manchester.
Particular areas of strength in NA-HPC at NAG:
- Numerical algorithms for scientific computing. As well as our own products we have contributed code to LAPACK, worked on MKL and ACML (tuned libraries for Intel and AMD hardware respectively), and are involved in the Open Petascale Library project.
- Software engineering to bring research codes up to industrial standards. This forms the basis of much of the code in our numerical libraries.
- Parallelisation of code with OpenMP and MPI and performance tuning for specific architectures. This is the basis of much of the work that we do in HECToR.
- Software for GPUs and other accelerators.
