International Conference Meets to Make Math Easier for Computer Models

From weather prediction to drug discovery, math powers the models used in computer simulations. To help these vital tools with their calculations, global experts recently met at Georgia Tech to share ways to make math easier for computers.

Tech hosted the 2024 International Conference on Preconditioning Techniques for Scientific and Industrial Applications (Precond 24), June 10-12.

Preconditioning accelerates matrix computations, a kind of math used in most large-scale models. These computer models become faster, more efficient, and more accessible with help from preconditioned equations.
